    Smokelaw and Herrgurka:
    You may be right... Both are better than one! Not this week, however. I see the lunasol at 75-85 lumens with nice color and a beautiful low being more useful for me about 85% of the time. Sneaking around the house in the morning without waking anyone, identifying wire colors at work without getting a tan... Big lights for bigger jobs, although the Haiku looks so nice!!! does anyone know of compatability between the lunasol20 head and a McClicky body? (I really like the McClicky...)

    Scout, you're right, I also reasoned that the LS is more practical for my needs right now. And then there's my minister of finance to consider.......

    But it still hurts.

    This is so perfect!
    You are right on the money!
    Thank God it's over.

    i do love my work,

    Getting a haiku!

    We are still waiting
    For this bright bit of sunshine
    To enlighten us!

    Have a tritium vial to install? See my sales thread for Norland 61 optical adhesive.

    Welcome aboard Dan.

    Don, now that this wave is over, please don't name your next light "The Ballet", we don't need a lot of pictures or videos of people in tutu's.

    Ah, just another benefit of living in Hawaii.

    Got the light in today and it is much better looking in person. Great machining on all parts.

    Throw with the McR17 is much better than I thought. Of course pumping out all those lumens doesn't hurt performance.

    Looking good so far!

    Gamble paid off. Got the light. WOWSERS. Don, you have another raving success on your hands. LOVE the three levels. I have noted that sometimes it comes on at the last level, other times not. Is there a trick I haven't figured out yet?
    I have not yet noted flickering, but then again, I've just been playing under my desk. Someone is going to come in my office and think I'm taking a nap under there.

    I'm glad the expedited shipping paid off for you! I am still hoping for delivery tomorrow or I will be waiting until Tuesday.

    Also crawling under a desk to play with a new flashlight shows you have a severe case of Flashoholism!

    If it is coming on in a different level then you only had it "off" for less than a second. The period that the light is on has no effect on changing levels. You can do a very quick flash and this won't change anything. However if you turn it off and then back on quickly, it will advance through the cycle.

    THANKS! That makes a lot of sense, and I wish others had designed theirs so. Well, back under the desk for me!

    While I still see the LunaSol20 as being the perfect light for me, the Haiku is a GREAT compliment.

    If you like the PD-S, the Haiku will become an instant favorite. To me, it is the next evolutionary step up from the PD-S...like getting a PD-S Mizer and a regular PD-S all in one.

    Before getting the light, I thought the UI was nothing really special. Multi-clicks have been around for a long time. While I have not used them all, this one in the Haiku stands out as being one of the most intuitive I've used in a long time. It is only a multi-level light when you want it to be. Hard to explain in writing, but once you pick one up and USE it the virtues of the UI become readily apparent.

    That's exactly what I was hoping for!

    I can get used to a lot of different interfaces, but I've grown to really like the Sundrop/Haiku's UI. At first, I thought having to toggle through high to get back to low would bother me, but that hasn't been the case. If I need to preserve night vision, it's simple to just cover the window up while toggling.

    Now all we need is flexible titanium, so that Don can replace the rubber boot and put some tritium in!

    I love my dear wife
    but Don's Valentine brings light
    brighter than her card



    Haiku arrived today. It looks and functions perfectly! Great job Don!

    I really love the feel of the new switch and the UI. I had just bought a En Aleph Mule 1x123 from Don but decided to sell it before the LE arrived from the Shoppe (due to getting a used Ti PD Mule). Since I knew I was going to sell the light I didn't replace the stock boot with the silicon spare supplied by Don. I was blown away by the ease of switching the Haiku vs the Aleph Mule which I assume is due to the Haiku having the newer boot already installed. I am amazed it makes such a huge difference or does the Haiku have a different clickie switch?

    I was really happy to see the Haiku waiting for me this morning. I had assumed that Mr. Murphy would make me wait until Tuesday with the USPS closed Monday for the holiday.

    Thanks again Don for such great flashlights and fantastic service!

    Happy Valentine's Day CPF!

    -Charles
