    Fenix TK70... Just because I wanted the brightest I could get, and it is cheaper than the SR90.

    I want a pocket sun one day

    Eagletac D25 Titanium - why = because it is 'Titanium' shiny and most importantly so cheap... it even came with a cute holster. For a change it is nice to be able to buy a torch that doesnt cost 3 figures..
    It is not bad apart from the grating between the titanium threads..

    Just put in an order for a high CRI HDS Rotary because the Rotary is an awesome light, and a high CRI emitter will make it even more awesome.

    An ElektroLumens Big Bruiser. Why? With 3 Cree XML's pumping out 3000 lumens from a 6" light- why not!

    A Fenix LD40 because I wanted a light in neutral tint, something to keep in the car that took batteries I could buy anywhere and because it's just a little different than most lights out there.

    Jetbeam ST Cycler. Wide, bright spill and more practical for walking at night. Concentrated beams on my other lights are great, but not practical for walking. The Medium warning mode (pulse) is a plus. Can't wait for it to arrive. Estimated 7 business days for it to arrive here in Yokosuka, Japan Naval Base.

    ST Cycler. I have a few lights, but all have concentrated beams. Excellent lights for spotting in long distances. I recently moved to Yokosuka, Japan Naval Base and was walking around with my daughter at night. Using my PD32, I realized it wasn't ideal for casual walking in the dark. I read about the ST Cycler from Jetbeam and liked 2 specific features. Wide and Bright Spill and a Medium mode that flashes intermittently. Perfect for casual walks and will get a driver's attention when I, as a pedestrian, am crossing a street. Can't wait for it to arrive.

    Just bought a Klarus X6 The Midas AAA, you know the gold plated one to give to a friend and a Jetbeam BA20 to give to an elderly relative who still uses an old maglight. It's nice and simple and they should be excellent gift lights.

    cheers

    Ditto! Just ordered it last night. I have a D25C I EDC right now. I love it. Figured why not get a Ti version. In XM-L

    Just bought a Surefire 6P LED. Why? Because it was $40

    Does a Surefire E2D count if I might put a Kuku module in it or turn it into an E2DLego?

    I got it basically because my collection was down to one E2- light, and that was unacceptable.

    I just came home with a 4Sevens Quark 123-2 "X", needed a main EDC light, now I just need to get a couple of AW 17670s, a charger, deep carry pocket clip and a flush tail forward clicky and the thing will be complete and utterly ideal!

    I just got a near mint Surefire A2 Aviator (xenon, with blue led's) for $60!

    I bought it because it was a steal! The guy was asking $120 for it but I guess he just wanted it gone...

    Sounds impressive. A good low is just as important. In a strange way, when my kids want me to read them a story with the lights out, we use a flashlight and some of mine are still too bright. I got by on my TA21 but lost it. Now I use my LD20, but the RRT-0 sounds pretty nice for such a situation.

    I was very surprised at how low it went. I ordered it from a reputable company, on their page it said the low was .003 lumens. Weather that's true or not I don't know. I do know that outside of about four foot (unless you know where your going) the light is pretty much useless. Would be perfect for reading at night,

    Maybe the guy just didn't know what he had. Ironically, I've seen it happen before with other SureFire lights. I sure as Hell wouldn't part with my A2 for $60. Especially since after-market bulbs are still out there for the A2 model.

    I purchased a 4Sevens Hi CRI Quark 123, because I wanted to see the difference between a Hi CRI and a cool white LED.

    My last LED light was a Nitecore D10. Do they even make that light any more? It's a good EDC light using a sanyo eneloop.
    Now I need a light for the house and want either a Fenix TK50 or a Fenix TK41 same basic size but I kind of like havng the availablity to use D cells but then again I have a lot od AA's for the TK41 as well.

    My last purchase was this morning. I bought a Zebralight SC51c because I like the idea of an 85+ CRI light with a neutral tint. I have the Zebralight SC600 and I like the looks, feel, and especially the electronic switch with the UI.

    I also placed an order for the new run of HDS EDC High CRI 120 lights -- because they are ******* awesome!!

    Zebralight SC600w is on it's way. I have the regular 600 and like it a lot, but I've always prefered a neutral or warm. Only recently have I tried Zebralights and this will be my third. Great light but the thing that really got me hooked was the UI.

    My new Light is a LedLenser P5R. It's a good EDC light.

    Quark 123 R5 No Clip.

    Because it has Moonlight and Low which are both lower than P2D Low, and Turbo to Turbo the Quark blows P2D away!

    LensLight TAD Gear Mini and Stinger. Liked the ability to focus the beam and the use of rechargeable cells. Something different from my Surefire and HDS lights.

    The last LED I bought was an E2E which I am upgrading to LED. I have some strange attraction to Surefire after buying my first Aviator and have used it many times in the cockpit and on preflights. Its amazing how you wonder ho w you ever lived without such a useful tool.

    Wow, I am jealous. At that price, I would have got four (more to the ones I already have).... at least.

    Purchased my first HDS this week. HDS custom rotary w/black bezel, high CRI and flush button. Why? Because you all talk so highly of it.
