    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*.

    L6 porcupine. The most bold flashlight design.
    Lights were once incandescent. And halogen bulb were great

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

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

    Default Best looking light of all time

    I was wondering what the best looking light of all time was in terms of pure looks and nothing else. Anyone have any opinions?
    I think that it could be the Led lenser Police tech focus its looks soo cool and the frogeye lens is wicked, no matter what colour it is it still looks sweet. (Before anyone asks yes i can use words like sweet and wicked as i am a teenager. Anyone over the age of 30 sorry but u'll have to stick with nice and other words like that (just Kidding). )

    The original Fenix L1+ Stainless Steel is one of my all time favorites in terms of appearance. I also really like the look of the new Jetbeam, which resembles the L1+.

    there is another thread just like this floating around.
    And all the posts so far are wrong, the best looking light of all time is made in Hawaii and goes by the name ti-pd-s

    Correct - it is in the Flashlight Collecting section, so I'll merge the 2 threads. Those who have posted so far in this newer one may want to look back through the whole thread...

    So many great lights...but I like the classic simplicity of the Surefire L4.

    I think the Wicked Lasers CORE is absolutely beautiful, even if it can't be considered a light in a practical sense.
