That stuff has been out for a long time. I tried it once and it often acted like water. Sometimes it would be ok, sometimes it would be so-so, and sometimes it wouldn't even do anything. I'm not sure why it was so inconsistent.
Its worked on everything I have ever used it on, but I have never used it on lights before.... Iam sure it works better on some alum alloy's and not as good on other's....
Mik...you just made my light purchase decision a little easier...I was thinking about the LX2 but I do really like the look of the E2DL except for the sharp pointy head....so E2DL it is for me...besides it is way cheaper than the LX2.
Also, could you please let me know which twisty tailcap you have in your photo? How does it work with a 2-stage E2DL? Do you simply momentary-press quickly twice to get to the low stage? Do you twist once quickly, then twist off, then twist quickly again to get to the low constant-on? Thank you for addressing my newb questions!
I just received my E2DL head mod back from MIK (turnaround was FAST!). Really lovely work, and eminently affordable. Just enough of a shallow scalloping left so that you should be able to tell if you leave it on when you stand it on its head. I am putting this on an E2E body for a very pocketable edc.
Merrill is a true gentleman, and a joy to deal with. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
