I was at REI the other night looking around and had some gift cards to use. I saw a Cygolite Mitycross 480 on sale for $160 when it was originally $250 so I bought it knowing I could return it if I wanted to after doing research (it was the last one and it came with the helmet and bar mount). I know it was on sale because they have since come out with the Mitycross 800 to replace the 480 but I am wondering if I should take the deal I got or return it and just buy the 800 for probably $70 more since I want the bar and helmet mount? The beam seems bright enough on the 480 and I was probably going to order a cheap light from China off ebay or amazon as a 2nd light. Is an 800 going to make a huge difference? I am new to night trail riding and want a decent light to start. Paying the difference for the full priced 800 isn't an issue but saving $ is always better than spending it!
Or.. should I look for a better light/brand in that price range? Only reason I went with REI is the gift cards but I can use them for other items and buy a light elsewhere.
