The MF Tactical Echo Series benefits from a major upgrade for 2018 and, as a result, the all new second generation Echo Series is “entry level” no more! No longer satisfied to be the little brother of its more powerful siblings, the Echo Series is now a full fledged Pro Grade flashlight with material quality and power output equal to its Juno and Pro Tango brothers, but at a price that puts more light in your pocket than ever before imaginable in a $60 flashlight. Still a small, lightweight flashlight at only 6″ in length, with a 1.4″ head diameter and weighing only 5-1/2 ounces, with its new, state-of-the-art 1200 lumen max Cree® XM-L2-U3 LED emitter, the new Echo Series achieves the perfect balance of blazing power, compact portability and affordable pricing. Echo-1 is a single mode (high only) light.
The second generation Echo-1 is waterproof to IPX-7 standards and now includes our new deep cut diamond knurling pattern on the flashlight body and tail cap for both a high quality feel and a slip-free grip in any weather conditions. An advanced and highly refined momentary-on tail switch with improved tactile feel and intuitive single-handed operation makes the Echo feel comfortable from the first time it makes its home in your hand. The Echo Series also gets our unique and innovative new Bi-Directional Pocket Clip, which can be easily removed if you prefer. Echo Series is built from extra thick, military grade level III anodized aluminum, with its hardened ultra-clear mineral glass recessed deep in the heavy duty bezel to protect from drops or tactical mishaps. The next generation Echo Series is now as rugged as it is powerful, and it is built in the USA to last a lifetime.
The evolution of the Echo Series dates back all of the way to our original pocket rocket, the T6-1000-3, which the first gen Echo replaced back in 2015. But the original Echo, while always a good value as an entry level high power flashlight, did not compete with its pro grade stablemates due to the heat dissipation limitations of a smaller head design. But by bumping out the head diameter by 1/10th of an inch and completely redesigning its internal structure to greatly improve heat dispersion, the new Echo Series now equals the power and beam throw of the more expensive Juno and Pro Tango models, while maintaining its pricing advantage as the most affordable pro grade flashlight ever built by MF Tactical.
There are an ever growing number of “tactical” flashlights offered on the internet these days, but as our long time customers already know, MF Tactical is the real deal, and we design and build our flashlights right here in New Jersey. The difference comes down to quality, and MF Tactical takes pride in the fact that nobody beats us in producing the highest quality tactical LED flashlights designed and built in America, and we stand behind our quality with our one year limited warranty and legendary customer service.
Echo-1 runs on a single high voltage 18650 rechargeable protected li-ion battery (Do NOT use CR-123A’s or unprotected batteries). While the price shown for the flashlight is without batteries, just use the option menu marked “Select Battery/Charger Package” when you put this light in your cart, and you can choose from a variety of packages made up of 1 or 2 of our top quality Extended or Ultra Capacity 18650 rechargeable li-ion batteries and your choice of AC or AC/DC smart charger, all offered with a package deal and no additional shipping. We also stock a variety of essential accessories, such as weapon and bicycle mounts, remote pressure switches, color filters and a custom ballistic nylon holster.

SMO Reflector Options:
If you would like to upgrade your Echo-1 to maximize the throw distance of this magnificent emitter, we offer the option to upgrade your reflector to a highly polished SMO smooth reflector. The standard OP or “orange peel” reflector has a textured surface that acts to evenly disburse the light over a wider field, which makes the light have a bias towards flood or spill. As some users prefer their light to have a bias towards throw, which concentrates more of the beam towards the center, sending more of the light farther down field, we offer the option of upgrading your light’s reflector to an SMO reflector. Think of the difference as the choice of loading your home’s light fixture with a spot light bulb vs. a flood light bulb. If you would want to maximize your light’s throw potential through the use of an SMO reflector, just check the option box when ordering and either upgrade your standard OP reflector to the SMO reflector or include both OP and SMO reflectors.
