    The Photo shows the old version, but you should get the new one... don't think anyone's still selling the other one.
    The new one has a glossier cable and the goodman handle screws are different.

    Thank you Duglum.
    Does anyone have a picture where I can see both versions so I can be sure I have the new one? Or a pic that shoas the old screws at the handle? The one here in this topic is a pic from the old one?
    Because if I only have the new one then, how can I tell?
    Would it make sense to add a protection for the cable so it cant bend too much to avoid a broken cable? I heared some people had that problem. Looking forward to get it.

    They have some comparing pictures on their Website: The Devil Is In The Flashlight Detail

    I didn't add any protection and so far the light and cable have been fine. But i only use it for warm water, it's my traveling Canister Light. I have a different one for our cold lakes. :)

    Just got my light. 13 days in total. Very fast shipment with DHL from the Netherlands, so no custom problems or anything like that. It is the NEW version, even if the ebay auction has the pictures from the old version.
    The screws are like the new one. The canister has the belt for fixing it on your harness not in the middle but upper third of the canister. Just I can not judge if the cable is more "shiny". Because I have nothing to compare. But think this one is also the better version.

    There are 2 spare screws included to fix the handle to the light itself? I can only see 2 holes there but 4 screws are included.
    The light looks quite nice and good quality. Also the light is strong I would say.
    The screws on the handle are right like this with the washers and screws in this sequence, right?

    Looking forward to test it in water. For 100€ including shipping this was a good deal I think.

    This is obviously also a company selling the Brinyte stuff: Procean. https://www.procean.nl/bakery/prolight-1600-2114/ Price is 310€ and on the boot exhibition it looks as if the OLD version has the shiny and glossy cable?
    For almost the price of the lamp I also bought a case for it. :) And also my UV Light and a charger. I also used some hoses from inside of a bike tire to add some protection to the lamp head and the edges of the tank.

    I hope it is the new version. I a nou in search for some metal glands because as i read on this topic it seems that is the weak point of this flashlight.
