    I just bought a KX2C.

    Did you notice that the P61L is not in the new catalogue?

    I will put the LX1 on a wish list.

    Yeah, I was hoping for the P61L too. No matter, 350 lumens should be "sufficient"

    Well, I'm really interested in these models:
    Aluminum Titan
    Saint
    Vampire
    Invictus

    I'm not 100% sure I'll buy them all though, especially if other brands will come up with similar products at half the price

    In order of interest:
    LX2
    Invictus
    One of the Saints
    Titan
    E1B Silver
    A2L in blue or green

    If the Saints come out in the next two weeks I will probably get the Saint. If it takes longer (which it probably will), I will get a Minimus.

    This is a toughy. I originally wanted the Invictus and possibly the Optimus, but now the TK40 has arrived so I just might wait for beam shots from them all before I decide. I would like to buy them all but the recession is hitting me below the belt.

    Link does not take you to the catalog for some reason, just the home page.

    saint and a2l are looking to be good prospects. i'll be extremely dissappointed if it ends up being that the ub3 replaces/replaced the ua2 & ub2.

    I talked to one of the R&D Guys at Surefire during SHOT, It appears that they were not happy with 6 volts on the original Invictus. So, it is now the 9 volt unit.

    Well looking at my signature I have a predisposition to A2s so I'm looking at at least 1 A2L, probably 2 (Red and White). I'll be ordering one ASAP as it intrigues me. I fell in love with the A2 because it gives me a great incandescent throw that cuts fog/rain and the great led flood for up close. I'm not sure an LED based version will stack up but I'm willing to invest in 1 and see.

    My M6 really needs to try out the new LED Turbohead although I won't be first in line for it. It's just not that high of a priority.

    I was very interested in the UA2, but that appears to have been stillborn. The UB2 held some interest for me but the UB3 is a non-starter for my use. Too long.

    I'm going to take a look at the T1A as well. I do like my Fenix P2D but the continuously adjustable output of the Titan has my attention.
    New Years Resolution 2010: I will neither purchase nor recommend any LED light that is not at least neutral, preferably warm.

    I absolutely need an A2L Aviator (red) and the E1B in silver seems to have a high bling factor. Furthermore, even the UB3 Invictus seems very attractive......

    But alas, us poor europeans have probably to wait until next year to lay hand on any of these lights since we´re not allowed to order in the US any longer.
    Of course, that gives us more time to finance all those needs

    I'm excited to see the new L1. Although I am also curious about the new Vampire light. Has anyone gotten a good look at the led or know what kind of led it is?

    As it stands right now.

    M3TL
    A2ZL
    Saint

    after that we'll just have to see but I imagine the order will be.

    A2L
    LX2
    LX1

    This all depends on the release dates and my financial situation this year. Priority though is the M3TL. I'm leaning hard toward adding more new throwers to my gear,

    Someday when my paycheck jumps, I pay off my school loans, my credit cards, get a downpayment on a house, and have a bit of a cushion saved up... one of the L-series. Just to see what the hubbub is about.

    So, probably not for 2-3 years But at least they'll be improved by then!
