    Party Re: List your McGizmo flashlights

    EN finish Aleph McClicky Mule with GDuP driver and cree LED

    McLuxIII PD slate with UV1J LED and Ti bezel (which, along with my watch, is my only Ti!!)

    These two are my most expensive ones, but I've also got a surefire M2, and 4 different Orb lights.

    UH, NO!

    Actually, I wish she was that clueless! Now, every time I try to say we don't need this-or-that, I hear something along the lines of "OK, Mister $250 dollar flashlight man".

    A man must do what a man must do


    We can always make up for it later.
    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.

    What's that saying? Better to ask forgiveness, than permission?

    What SWMBO doesn't know won't hurt me! Yeah, she knows about what I spent on a couple, but for the most part lights are like my guns - she knows about them, just not exactly how many I have.

    My one and only.

    McLux PD-S Slate. My favorite single cell 123 light. Love that it's practically a snorkelling dive light as well. Won't have to worry about it taking a dip or putting it in the ocean. Although, it's probably not as impervious to the salt water like the Titantium version.

    Default List your McGizmo flashlights - question

    Just found this thread - started to create a new one but decided to semi-hijack this one instead...

    First, my list:

    Ti-McLuxIII-S20-PD ("PD-S")

    Ti-McLuxIII-LS20 ("LunaSol 20")

    Sundrop XP

    Haiku

    2x123 McClicky currently hosting a Creemator

    Aleph 1


    Haiku XP-G


    And due to arrive Thursday, February 4, a Lunasol 27!!

    So now the question - there are many informative stickies related to loads of great information on Don's lights, but what I wish I could find is a listing showing a general level of desirability. Stated another way - if you wanted to build a collection, what would be 1,2,3,4, etc., on your list as 'must have' Gizmos? I realize that this is somewhat subjective, but I'm also betting that the true aficionados of these lights would all have similar opinions.

    I'd like to slowly collect additional lights as they pop up on B/S/T and as Don introduces new ones. I am so pleased each time I snag a new one - I have yet to be disappointed and yet to sell one - and hopefully my financial future will allow me to hold on to all of them and continue to acquire new ones.

    I've sold off many a lesser light and never felt a twinge of regret - have yet to sell a single Gizmo - only a 1x McClicky hosting something else.

    So, I have high hopes for a flood of information! Thank you!!

    I have been bitten by the McGizmo bug only 4 months ago, and because I'm a freak, the collection grew quickly, but stops now for at least 6 months, guess why...

    In order of purchase :

    SunDrop XR-U
    Sapphire
    LunaSol 20
    LunaSol 27
    Haiku BB
    Ti PD Mule
    Ti PD-S
    Haiku XP-G
    S27 Cx2 (on the way...)

    There will be more for sure in future!

    Wishlist of future lights :

    Renewed LunaSol 20, there was a project named Eclipse I think I remember somehow...

    I'm looking for a Mac's Customs Tri-EDC in either aluminum or titanium. The only must is that it is bored to accept an 18350. Emitter and clip or lack of is not important.

    This is great - a renewed interest in an already interesting thread! New challenge - could everyone post photos of their lights? Already posted mine... they are all just so 'purty'.

    I'm still interested to see if anyone would take a stab at ranking theirs in terms of their perceived desirability, and even then list, in order, the ones that are still on the 'wish list.'

    If I need to start that in a new thread I will, but seems like it would work in this one.

    Half the enjoyment comes from learning!
