    Default Now offering lights - help please

    Hi there.

    My 1st post here, so please bear with me [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    Go Get 'em Gear is branching out and I need some flashlight advice.

    We will soon (as in tomorrow, but the website updating will take a little while) be carrying flashlights from ASP, Bison, Coleman, Infinity, Inova, Maglite, Nite-Ize, Pelican, Photon, Princeton Tec, Streamlight, Underwater Kinetics, Versaband and of course, Surefire.

    Now - I'm real happy that we can offer all these brands - at about 20% under retail prices, but I'd like recomendations on the best from each maker, and these will be the ones initially featured on the website (God I wish the Wife knew HTML [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] )

    Thanks a bunch - and of course, if ya'll want any before the site is updated, just fire off an e-mail.

    For an idea of the lights we now offer Click Here

    Thanks again!!!

    I'm sure you'll get some good replies on flashlights. I just want to say I'd like to find a dealer with a friendly online ordering process that sells Ripoffs. As in Reeline holsters/pouches. I have 3 trusted dealers. One has a comprehensive selection but a lousy ordering process. The other 2 have great online ordering, but have a small selection.

    David,

    As a matter of fact, we do have Ripoffs, quite a few different products. If you need something just drop me an e-mail [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    Well... this is what I was getting at. I like to click-click and then I'm done. The only typing I want to do is filling out my name, address and payment type. I could just as easily email or call one of the 3 dealers I normally use. Yes, I'm extremely lazy. [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

    Why click-click? Because I do a lot of agonizing and browsing before I click on that order button. If I have to email or call for availability or to order, 'buyer's regret' will set in and I'll delay or forget the order.

    And sometimes dealers have a bit more info than a manufacturer's website.

    Now if you have a Canadian made, Mini-Mag holster that works as a sheath and headlight band, I'll be impressed. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    Nope, not me [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    But I bet Normark from Bladeforums could hook you up [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] He's a Canadian guy that does custom Kydex work. Check out his site -- On Scene Tactical.

    Have fun!

    For me when ordering online, nothing upsets me more to place an order, pay extra for quicker shipping and then find out it's out of stock and backordered. It's even worse when the dealer doesn't notify me immediately that it is out of stock but that information would be nice to know at the time of ordering. Of course the famous Botach is known for doing that but other more reputable dealers have pulled that off as well.

    I think it would be a good idea to have the latest Inova Micro-lights (with a constant on switch) available. If you have a good price on them, it would be a pretty tempting 'add-on' item to an order. I know knifeworks.com always gets me for a few photons when I order a knife.

    Dan, I don't know if you're sticking with what you can get from your distributor ...or if you order stuff from other sources also. But what I'm looking for is the Flashband. I found this Canadian item about 4 years ago. I check in about once a year to see if they're offering them yet.

    www.flashband.ca

    But as time rolls on I have less and less of a desire to find one here in the U.S.

    David,

    It comes in Black, Blue, Green, OD Green, and Purple. We sell it for $5.40 plus shipping. We also carry a camo one for $6.40.


    Also - the website now has some flashlights and prices up, many more items to follow [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    Have fun!

    Do you have a Underwater Kinetic line of lights? If so, do you have the Light Cannon? It's a true 10w HID light, and is probably the only "affordable" HID torch on the market right now.

    If you have it, or plan on supplying it in the next gfew weeks let me know. I'm in the market of this light and i would like to buy it anywhere that is cheaper and AWAY from California. At 189.99 dollars plus California tax here in San Diego, i'm willing to buy one of these on Ebay for 160 - or from a reputable dealer.

    So how much would a Light Cannon cost minus the 20% discount off retail? [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    P.S. you have a really nice site comming along!

    We do, indeed, carry Underwater Kinetics. We don't have the Cannon yet, but oddly enough, we do have the Bulb for the Cannon 100. The bulb retails for $103.76 [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img] but our price will be $80.93 [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    Asked the supplier - told us that many new products are arriving and to keep checking back, so we will [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    Please keep checking back - and FYI!!! The sale section for knives is up, some darn fine prices if I do say so myself [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    Thanks ya'll!

    Javahead,

    How soon before we can order direct, as we can with our other dealers?

    Brightnorm ,

    You can order direct through e-mail or by phone right now. If it isn't listed on the site yet, don't worry, just ask and we may have it.

    I'm looking into e-commerce, but that is going to be expensive so it probably won't be anytime soon.

    It seems like everyone wants the Brinkmann Legend LX, at low-low prices....

    The Eternalight would also be a great choice.

    But, what others have said is right-- when doing online orders, it would be nice to know if something will be in stock or is back-ordered.

    Also, it's nice when you don't have to buy a new mouse after ordering a product because you wore out the mouse button clicking things so much!

    No problem!

    We can tell you if it's in stock, and if not, how long until it ships to you [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    Hey JavaHead, i'm glad to see a distributor taking advantage of a discussion board like this. I can tell you are starting a very successful and customer service oriented bussiness.

    Anyway, fill me in on the arrival of the Light Cannon anytime on this discussion because i check back on this post daily. I'm ready to buy the Light Cannon now, and if you sell your products 20% off retail, i figure i can save myself 30-50 dollars by buying from you - and instead of my local dive shop!

    Keep up the good work JavaHead....OH BTW, what is your real name? I think i missed it. I'd like to call freinds by their first name. (yes, we are all friends here on CPF....i hope [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] )
