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*.
