    Drool Best LOOKING Flashlight ever !

    OK...no "right or wrong answer" here...I'm strictly interested in seeing the patterns that evolve from people expressing what they personally feel is the most visually appealing handheld flashlight [even if it's a Custom, even if it were just one of a kind] ever made, no matter how far back you have to go.

    Just to tick you off (I mean 'Start you off *LOL*) I'd like to nominate 'The original "turnkey" single cell McLux in raw Aluminum'.

    That crazy futuristic "piston-like" visual profile combined with that gound breaking tail assembly, and a few radioactive vials thrown in just for bling knocks my socks off even to this day.

    So C'Mawn...Gat light? A Surefire? A 3 cell D cell Mag ?*LOL* LET'S GET IT OWN!!

    Feel free to attach a pic to help us visualize if you're able *S*.

    I think it's the LedLenser/Coast V6 Power Chip.

    I've always liked the small battery tube/turbo head design.

    Though there may be some new contenders when the Modamag's splash anodize run comes back.

    Don't have a pic but I like a black PR-T head with a black VG-1 body. Plus it's quite bright too.

    Man!!
    You all are calling out some great looking lights *S*!?!

    I forgot just how good looking a few of these are!

    I'm impressed by the number of ARC call outs.


    Are you all gonna let McGizmo's ego get away with his "dominance" thus far ? *LOL*

    My preference runs more toward "smooth" or plain styles like the Inova T3, X1 & X5T. HDS, Arc LS, SF's E2e, G2 and Fenix also fit this general category.

    While I appreciate the cool, futuristic, weapon-like offerings for their machining, I like a more subdued appearance.

    Truly, it's all a matter of opinion.
    I'm absolutely certain that I need another flashlight.

    I'll vote for the Spy 005, a beautiful break from a world of cylindrical metal flashlights.

    When talking about the beauty of lights ... I can't decide. There are so many stunning lights. I'll show my personal favourites, in no particular order:

    KT2 on C3 with SW01



    Golden Dragon by McGizmo (a blast from the past )



    Larry's CR2II (he created this style after all)



    The SPY005 (already a classic)



    SF L6P (a light that envokes fear )



    McLuxIII-Ti-PD (Don's home-run, my all-time favourite)



    bernie
    There is a type of perfection that transcends the quest for lumens. Buying a $250 1-cell light for "lum factor" is like buying a $250 single malt Scotch for the alcohol content.
