Had the opportunity to blood trail a bowshot doe last pm. The Surefire E1L is an LED with 25 lumens but seems brighter to me and did a fine job showing blood on brown or green leaves, even small specks. It has a very bright center beam and a less bright outer beam. I used the Petzel to gather my gear but not to blood trail. It is much dimmer. I did use it to mark the deer's location while I went back to the truck for a lantern. The green lens makes for a very good green light that was visible about 50 yds out or more. Used the Victorinox hunter, did a find job. The gutting blade worked like a charm.
