    nice collection . I just have three:

    1) McLux TK (McFlood, Q4L/BB325 or something like that)

    2) Ti PD Mule

    3) Aleph McClicky Mule -- blush, I'm not sure of the exact configuration but I like it a lot. It has that black finish that didn't quite take, so it looks like the light is covered with a permanent grease stain. Gives it character

    I soooo want a Lunasol...

    Nice group of lights though I can't imagine owning a McGizmo which is not in operating condition.
    What do I have?
    A bunch of alephs.
    A handful PD's and 27Lt's several Ti McGizmos.
    A couple of custom built heads
    and a light engine or two.
    Hopefully more on the way.

    In order from oldest to newest:

    1. HD45
    2. Dark Slate PD (with a good ol' UV1J Lux III)
    2. 27LT-S
    3. A19 XRE (2-stage, even!)
    4. PD-S Mizer (in the best of all PD colors: light grey)
    5. Ti PD-S
    6. XR19-PD (Again with the Ti! Sheesh...)
    7. LunaSol

    The XR-19's still my favorite, though: small, pocketable, and bright, this baby throws a gorgeous beam. =)

    There is already a full-scale investigation going on, and the offender will be punished accordingly. Ignoring McGizmo nomenclature is a capital offense, after all.

    Don changed to the 8-flute design with the Ti PD-S, saying that it improved grip more - I agree to a certain extent. This has taken the 6-flute design into a "classic" design, and for one reason or another is more desirable/collectible by some.

    That said, I don't really prefer one over the other as far as function goes - I do like the look of the 6-flute more, but that's a personal opinion.

    So your question - good/better/best - not sure if I answered it, but I tried!

    Why do I like Donís flashlights, and why do I have so many?

    The short answer is that it is an addiction.

    I like the McLux I TK because it is one of Donís earlier designs, and shows a lot of aesthetic sensibility in a simple design of ordinary materials. It is one of my favorites. I very much like the modular design and aesthetics of the Aleph. The 27LT has great utilitarian value in a pleasing body. The McLuxIII T (Ti) has a lot of sentimental value being, to my knowledge, Donís first Ti flashlight offered to the general public (correct me if I am wrong). I recall that Don felt compelled to justify the price. The PD flashlight, by embodying the beauty of simplicity, functionality, visual appeal, and a perfect beam, elevates the art to a new level. The Mule EN is small and lightweight, attractive, and has terrific flood, and is particularly nice with the GDuP LE. I like it a lot better than the black version.

    If I could keep only six of the flashlights , I would choose the McLux I Tk, almost any Aleph 3, the McLuxIII T, the McLuxIII PD 24kt gold, a PD Ti S27, and the LunaSol 27.

    Which flashlight do I like the least? The HD45.

    What would I like to see next? A LunaSol with two levels for the flood LEDs, and two levels for LED using the reflector, each operating independently (for example by the six LEDs operating from a two level clicklie tail and the LED in the middle being a two level twisty). I have no idea whether that light would be technically feasible, or desirable to many, but it sure would serve a lot of purposes.

    My one and only is a McGizmo Aleph McClickie-Mule with the black oilcan finish. It is currently empty, waiting on the GDuP driver boards to become available from the Shoppe. It should be sweet once it is done.
    Until further notice, I am not accepting new mod requests.
