After the incredible success of our Pro Tango Series, we set out to do what seemed impossible not that long ago: improve upon the Pro Tango T6 and develop a new model that further pushes out the envelope of what is possible in a top LED flashlight from MF Tactical. The result of our hard work is the 1100 lumen max MF Tactical Pro Tango U2 EX. As our top-of-the-line model in the Pro Tango Series, you still get all the advanced features and quality from the Pro Tango U2, including the brighter and more efficient 1100 lumen max XM-L2-U2 LED emitter by Cree®. In addition, the EX designation signifies our use of two 18650 batteries, which doubles the runtime on the EX to up to an incredible 5.25 hours on high and a record breaking 12 hours on low (using 3400mAh Ultra Capacity batteries.)
The Pro Tango Series stands out from the crowd due to MF Tactical‘s boldest and most innovative design features to date – an integrated stainless steel control dial just below the light head that enables you to select the flashlight’s mode setting without first having to cycle through all of the modes with the tail switch. Just grasp the distinctive and ergonomic control dial, and dial in the mode that you would like to use. With the dial, the light stays in the selected mode until you change the dial position. By separating out the function of the switch from that of the mode selector, you no longer have to fumble with soft clicks when you need to select a mode in a hurry.
All of the lights in our Pro Tango Series incorporate, in response to the feedback from our law enforcement users, a switch with a “momentary-on function.” When you lightly press and hold the tail switch button on the Pro Tango U2 EX, you activate this impressive LED flashlight’s massively bright white beam. Let go of the button, and it immediately turns off. For clearing a building or just briefly lighting up a suspect or his car, the Pro Tango’s momentary-on function gives you the flexibility and control to expertly execute your training and tactics. Need the light to stay on, simply press the button until it clicks, and then it operates like a standard on/off switch – just click on/click off or press for momentary on – you are in complete control of your Pro Tango U2 EX.
The Pro Tango U2 EX is a 5-mode light, and the control dial quickly and easily lets you switch between high, medium, low, strobe and SOS modes. And, since the control dial works independently of the momentary-on switch, you can pre-select the tactical mode you need, and then just press the button to activate the light in whichever mode you have pre-selected. Simple, elegant and effective! The Pro Tango U2 EX is also made with the harder and more durable, Level III military grade anodized finish so that it will always look as good as it does on the day you first place it in service.
The MF Tactical Pro Tango Series, the multi-mode big brother to our Victor Series, continues the tradition of including in our design an aggressive and beautiful brushed aluminum crenelated Attack Bezel. Not only does this rich feature contribute to this light’s distinctive and high quality look and feel, but having a chunk of solid honed aluminum on the business end of your light also serves to give the user one serious last line of defense (which we hope you will never need to use). In addition to its use as a defensive tool, the Pro Tango Series’ attack bezel also protects the light from damage in the event of a drop and provides a glass breaker in the event of an emergency. All in all, what you see on this page is a stunning and well engineered essential tool that you will trust and rely upon as your everyday carry tactical light.
Flashlight freaks want the most current and most powerful LED’s in their tactical lights. That is why we have built this flashlight around the Cree U2 LED emitter. We have no idea why a company like Mag Lite continues to use technology that is over a decade old when the emitter chips just keep getting better and better. What we do know is that because MF Tactical is a nimble and lean US manufacturer, we are able to stay flexible and open to design upgrades while we keep our eyes open for the next big LED advancement, while our larger competitors seemingly stay wedded to older technology long after it has become obsolete. As a result, we constantly improve our products and continually innovate as technology progresses. The Pro Tango U2 EX is just our latest example of what you can achieve by always seeking improvements and never resting on your laurels.
The Pro Tango Series demonstrates precisely what results can be achieved by simply being motivated to do everything better and more efficiently than the other guy. Utilizing an emitter with a max output rating of 1100 lumens and being priced at about half of that charged by bigger manufacturers offering less features, the Pro Tango U2 EX represents the new standard in hand held tactical lighting designed for law enforcement. While we won’t knock the quality of our competitors, once you hold a MF Tactical in your hand, you will know that we make a light that exceeds the highest of build quality standards. And we stand behind our quality with our one year warranty.
Our redesigned tail cap/switch assembly, which is now used on all Pro Tango and Victor Series lights, has an easier to operate switch with positive tactile feedback. Plus, the addition of two indents at the bottom of the tail cap now allow for easier one handed operation, as your thumb now has easier access to the recessed button. Recessing the button into the tail cap provides the added benefit of permitting the light to tail stand, which enables you to use the light as a table lamp by allowing the beam to reflect off the ceiling and light up a room.
The Pro Tango U2 EX was built to run on two high voltage 18650 rechargeable protected li-ion batteries (Do NOT use CR-123A’s or any unprotected batteries). While the price shown for the flashlight is without batteries, just check the box marked “Select Battery/Charger Package” when you put this light in your shopping cart, and you can choose from a variety of packages made up of two or four of our top quality rechargeable li-ion batteries and your choice of AC or AC/DC charger, all offered with a package deal and with no additional shipping. We also stock a variety of accessories, such as mounting hardware, remote pressure switches and holsters.
SMO Reflector Options:
If you would like to upgrade your Pro Tango U2 EX 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.
