Introducing the redesigned 1100 lumen max Pro Tango U2. We are very proud of our Pro Tango Series, as it represents a tactical design that incorporates years of feedback, improvements and comments that we have received from our devoted MF Tactical law enforcement fans and flashlight freaks everywhere. The Pro Tango Series represents our finest design, now improved after receiving its first head to tail redesign. While its beauty can be plainly seen in the pictures on this page, what is beneath its anodized aluminum skin makes it even more desirable.
The improvements to the Pro Tango U2 started with an upgrade to the high efficiency Cree® XM-L2-U2 LED emitter, which produced a 10% gain in brightness without increasing heat discharge or decreasing battery life. Next, we incorporated our internal switch design, which provides precise control of your Pro Tango with increased reliability and no necessary maintenance. Next, we added more knurling to the flashlight’s aluminum body to increase grip. Then a complete rethink of the design of the pocket clip: We reversed the direction of the clip to enable you to keep the head of the flashlight safely protected in your pocket, and then we increased the security of the pocket clip design by fully attaching it 360 degrees to the body tube to prevent any unintended removal of the clip. For users who prefer the Pro Tango without a pocket clip, it is still removable – simply unscrew the retaining ring, and the clip can be easily and neatly removed until needed. Lastly, the enhanced design of our mode adjustment ring makes the Pro Tango as beautiful as it is easy to operate.
Our law enforcement users have always told us that they need a “momentary-on function” in order to maximize the utility of their everyday carry tactical flashlight. Thus, when you lightly press the tail switch button on the MF Tactical Pro Tango U2, 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.
The Pro Tango U2 includes MF Tactical‘s boldest and most innovative design features to date: the integration of a stainless steel control dial just below the light head that enables you to select and change the flashlight’s mode setting without having to cycle through modes like you do with a traditional clicky switch. You can either pre-select your intended mode by clicking to your mode position before powering on the flashlight, or change modes on the fly by grasping the distinctive and ergonomic control dial and selecting the mode that you want. All of the power of the Pro Tango U2 comes out the front through the outstanding Cree® XM-L2-U2 LED emitter, which has enabled us to make the Pro Tango U2 among the brightest single-battery flashlights available anywhere. The Pro Tango U2 is a 5-mode light with high, medium, low, strobe and SOS modes. And, since our unique stainless steel dial control 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 set the control dial. You can also change modes “on-the-fly” while the light is on with a simple and satisfying click of the dial. Simple, elegant and effective! The Pro Tango U2 is also made with the harder and more durable, Level III military grade anodized finish, unlike the competition’s Level II that wears quickly over time.
The MF Tactical Pro Tango Series, is the multi-mode big brother to our Victor Series, which continues the tradition of including in the design an aggressive and beautiful brushed aluminum crenelated Attack Bezel. Not only does this rich feature give this light its 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’ potent attack bezel also protects the light from damage in the event of a drop and also provides a glass breaker in the event of an emergency. Following through with the quality brightwork design element of the bezel, you will find a polished stainless steel pocket clip that enables you to secure your Pro Tango U2 to your belt or pocket. 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.
Building a tactical flashlight around the Cree U2 LED emitter makes designing flashlights seem almost too easy (don’t worry, we know and appreciate how much hard work our engineer puts into his work) because we are working with so much potential light output in such a small, cool and efficient chip. 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, whereas our larger competitors seemingly stay wedded to older technology long after it has become obsolete. As a result, we are able to constantly improve our products and continually innovate as technology progresses.
The proof, as they say, is in the pudding, and the new 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 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 limited warranty and our legendary customer service.
The Pro Tango U2 was built to run on a single high voltage 18650 rechargeable protected li-ion battery (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 cart, and you can choose from a variety of packages made up of one or two of our top quality Extended or Ultra Capacity rechargeable li-ion batteries and your choice of charger type, all offered with a package deal and no additional shipping. We also stock a variety of accessories, such as mounting hardware, remote pressure switches, color filters and holsters.
SMO Reflector Options:
If you would like to upgrade your Pro Tango U2 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.
