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.
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.
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]
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.

Ah -- didn't realise that (using broadband at home and at work)
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.
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]

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]
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] )
LEDagent, the name is Dan -- darn glad to meet'cha [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] Soon as I get word on the cannon I'll give you a hollar.
something ridiculous (aka lightlover) -- Well partner -- Ah reckon that I can ship just about any-ole-which way so as to get'cha yer package as inexpensive as possible [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] Customer has the call on shipping methods -- UPS, USPS, FED Ex etc etc... [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
Thanks again for all the support -- I'll continue to update the site as my fingers allow [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]
