    Thanks Troy It sure is the looker we expected. Match that with the form factor and UI of the 005 and it's clear why this was gone in 60 seconds.

    Don't kid yourself Don. You're right there with Dave in the same class. You might be a step behind him this particular week, but I suspect as you continue working on those "vapor" ideas, you'll be neck and neck in no time. Damn, I like creative flashlight competition!

    It's clear to many both makers offer the pinnacle of lighting, in classes that are incomparable.

    WOW, I love those pictures Dad. Good lighting.

    I am getting my LunaSol this week and I can't wait. Other than my light and the Wee I had for a short time (I loved it but so did our queen), it is my first Ti light.




    Cheers
    Dave


    ps. my Damascus Wee is coming some day too

    Yeah, well I am getting my Spy 007 so

    I win!

    Seriously, I think the design and sculpting of the 007 is just astounding. Functional art to appreciate now and in the future.

    What is the depth of the counter bore in the knob? I am thinking it would make a nice cavity for some H3 in a clear Norland inlay? The vial could even serve as a volume indicator?!?

    Thank you partner! It would not be possible with out your and Wayne's input and parts. It was your idea to put an o-ring around the knob. And Wayne's STFu is so awesome . . . don't get me started.

    The recess in the knob is .055 deep. I just took one of my trit vials and slid it across my diamond stone till it whacked off .005 and it fits flush.


    Cheers

    Funny thing, is the SPY 007 reminds me of a portable headphone amplifier. In fact, the SPY 007 is the only fllashlight I've bought that costs more than my best portable headphone amplifier/USB DAC. Of course, none of my headphone amps are made out of Titanium.

    In the bottom two pics I mostly wanted to show that Data's light has joined the big leagues of McGizmo and Mr. Bulk.

    As far as weight differential between the Ti PD-S and the Spy 007, it's substantial. The Spy is far heavier. My Ti PD-S with cell but no clip/clip screws is about 95.29g. The Spy blew past my 100g scale - maybe we can get Dave to weigh one with cells installed - but I'd say it's a good 50% heavier. I'd guess at least 150g.

    Sometimes, when I'm feeling down because nothing seems to be going right, I like to take a home pregnancy test. Then I can say, "Hey, at least I'm not pregnant

    Wow, nice guestimate at only 3 grams off.

    How is the tailcap removal & installation?


    Griff, looks like you already had an O-blow out.

    What is that circular engraving mark right between the tail cap and lanyard hole?
