    Too bad I couldn't post this in the genral flashlights forum.

    No carry-on for this toothy thing fer sure. But its appeal is primal and certain. I'd like to have one, but I'll have to buy an SF flashlight first...

    I've got an E2e coming via UPS. Just saw this thing earlier today. Also, just learned how cool the TAD website is! My problem with the thing is: 1. It's kind of expensive when most of your cash is tied up in the flashlights themselves, and 2. I'd constantly be looking for something to maim.

    I saw pics of one version with more aggressive teeth and it looked pretty vicious. This version at TAD looks kinda benign. It probably doesn't look that nasty if it were right in fornt of you. I ordered one so I'll let you all know when I get it.

    I have both models. The one for the 6p/z2 series has more aggresive teeth, just slightly larger.

    Actually, does anyone know how tough a Surefire is? I mean will it survive being used as an impact tool?

    Default Re: Tactical Impact Device

    I was just going to say -- if one used this "impact" tool while the light was on, shouldn't one have a spare LA or two handy?

    From extensive experience with an old 6P, yes.

    Thinking Anyone Familiar with T.A.D GG&G TID Products?

    I'm interested in picking up one of TAD Gear's TID bezels for my HAIII X5T. I was wondering if anyone owns one of their TID bezels and can provide any feedback on the quality, installation (is it secure? does it scratch the HAIII finish)?

    http://www.tadgear.com/edged%20tools/tid.htm

    Many thanks!

    Thinking Re: Anyone Familiar with T.A.D GG&G TID Products?

    Dare I ask why this question was moved to "Gadgets/Non-flashlight Electronics" when this is dealing with a screw-on bezel for an Inova X5T flashlight???

    FWIW I just ordered one and should have it by next week... sheesh.

    Ironic Re: Anyone Familiar with T.A.D GG&G TID Products?

    To be more presice it is a slide on attachment to the existing bezel, secured with setting screws, wich makes it a non essential flashlight part, AKA gadget.

    Ahhh so. And the discussions about battery extender tubes for Wolf Eyes and Surefires belong in the... and the Ti bezels for the HDS EDCs... oh, they aren't attached by set screws onto the outside of the light?

    Just pulling your chain. Sheesh. Just seems a bit odd that this is in a section titled "Gadgets/Non-flashlight Electronics"

    Maybe it is a bit (loooong stretch) like a knife, and it is made on a lathe that is powered by electricity, and it is a gadget that fits onto the outside of an aluminum tube that may or not house a flashlight.


    Got it!

    I just recieved my TID this week (for the X5) and Overall I am rather happy with it. It did however leave markings on the anodized surface of the x-5. I'm not too worried about it though as I really don't ever plan on removing it.

    I've considered getting one, but they're awfully expensive. Do they add much to the OD?
    Got busted lights? Send me a PM and depending on the situation, I'll take 'em off your hands. I always like a good modding challenge.

    I had one on a E2E for awhile; it did leave marks and is hard on your pocket for pocket carry added length? About 3.33 mm near as I can tell.

    Thanks, I put in the order and got my confirmation email yesterday. I don't think it will ever be coming off of the X5T, but at least I now know it will probably leave marks in the HA finish. Shoot, I don't think I'll ever sell this little light anyway.

    Thanks!

    A lot of knowledgeable people with respect to combatives LOVE those things.

    Ditto. That particular version linked-above will tear-up the inside of your jeans or slacks pockets. So, better plan on a different mode than pocket-carry.

    The newly-designed crenelated bezels by Surefire are a better solution in my options. Aggressive enough as a pain-compliance tool, but easier on your pockets.

    I receive that message loud-and-clear. Once this bezel goes on, it doesn't get to ride in a pocket any more.

    Hey- anyone know of a decent case for the X5T that may work with this bezel?

    Thanks!

    Received it last night. It is a nicely finished product. The product is first rate and the dark grey finish compliments the natural HAIII. I like it! Probably the world's most expensive X5T!
