    Just ordered another SP-6 Seraph and a pair of L2T Solarforce hosts plus another LF HiCRI drop-in. Also have parts for new Nichia 219 drop-ins from Craig in the pipe.

    Just ordered a Preon 2 High CRI. Why? That's easy, I don't have one.

    I ordered a Jetbeam TCR1. My favorite light UI is the control ring only used on the Surefire T1A, the TCR1 has the same UI, in titanium, with an XM-L... I had to give it a shot.

    I ordered a jetbeam rrt-01. This will replace the Lumapower incendio as edc. The incendio already is very light (a must for me) and a lot of output but not a good UI. The rrt-01 with rotary control will solve that.

    Quark AA^2 Turbo.

    1) I did not have one
    2) It was $48
    3) I wanted a compact light with some throw
    4) I have a collection of Quark R2, XPG Neutral, High CRI, and an XML. all low voltage heads in either tactical or regular interfaces
    5) I have a mix and match set of Quark battery tubes, and a few Li-ION batteries that can be swapped out with various lithium primaries or NiMh
    6) Few tactical interface lights seem to have a 25'ish lumen mode. most have either a low mode under 10 or start over 50 lumens).
    7) Hate getting "blinky" modes when cycle between low and high

    My Mac's Customs EDC SST-50 Al Neutral 2.8 18350





    After owning most of the EDC flavors that Mac has to offer, I keep coming back to the Al SST-50 Neutral. I find that 2.8 is well suited for me especially with the ability to utilize the 18350 IMR battery. This setup offers extended runtime with high output and the most efficent heat sinking of the bunch. I prefer the floody artifact free beam profile of the SST-50 over the throw of the XM-L. I am not paranoid about EDC carrying of the Al as the light can be easily tuned up with 3M cloth to remove any scratches and nerfs which are inevitable. The clip is a must for me as I am not a belt holster guy and I love the positive Ti clip Mac has designed.

    WOW! that is a most impressive EDC. Would that 18350 IMR (Orange body?) be the same size as a 18650 LiON?

    Since i sold my TN11 i didn't have what you'd call a thrower in my collection so i bought a Dereelight CL1H T with an XM L neutral white,i also bought an extension & a DBS T head with an XR E & smooth reflector so i can lego the CL1H T into a DBS T
    now i have my thrower & a very good light that puts out 700 lumen,next thing to buy is the aspheric head.I'm really loving these Dereelight mix & match lights & the quality is very good.

    What? Jet Beam M2S

    Why? I need a thrower that had better battery life than my cheap rechargable spot light.

    So far I have not been disapointed.

    The 18350 is half the length of the 18650. About the same length as a 16340 or CR123.

    I considered doing the same. I am very happy with my TCR1.

    I just bought a second Lenslight Mini to go with my Lenslight Mini Ti. These lights are incredible. It's too bad the company's name sounds so much like LED Lenser, I think that keeps people away from them.

    Surefire P2X-B Fury. Purchased because it was just a bit over $100, and that is an irresitable price for such an awesomely useful light. It is attached to my hiking bag now.

    HDS 170 Golden Dragon - because of the amazing throw in such a nice package.
    HDS 120 Golden Dragon - because I got impatient waiting for a 170 to become available...
    Malkoff MD2 (hi/low) M61 Nichia 219 High CRI - because I've always wanted to try a Nichia emitter and love the rock solid MD2 Host.
    HDS High CRI Rotary - to teach me patience...

    Nitecore TM11. A compact, bright and throwy/floody light. And it's a great deal.

    I just got through pulling the lever on a Zebralight SC600 about 5 minutes ago, from goinggear, so I wont receive it til later this week probably. Hope I like it, because I did a LOT of reading before buying an 18650 light, and I had first decided on the Lumapower D-Mini EX-2, but couldnt get any real reviews of it, cause it seems almost nobody owns one. Then on the only youtube video showing its beam, which was in German, you could see some very obvious rings and lines in the beam, so I just decided to skip it and go with the SC600, which is probably about the most powerful single 18650 light out there, and about the smallest too!

    Just ordered a Jetbeam RRT-01.

    Why? On high doses of prednisone and couldn't sleep the other night. Got up grabbed iPhone. On CPF. Started reading about it. Read all posts about it and the titanium model. Two days later I couldn't resist anymore. The insane low and no clicky switch pushed me over the edge.

    ^^ ditto a few comments up ^^ Ordered a Malkoff MD2 (hi/low) M61 Nichia 219 High CRI and a MD3 body and MD2 head. Great to see Malkoff and Illumination Supply making these available.

    Why? The XP-G Malkoff M61 is my most often used light; I want to see if the Nichia version can or will displace it. Sure looks good but proof will be in the shining.

    As for the MD2, somehow I've managed to avoid buying one so far, even though a twist for high/low, rear tail clap momentary clicky (without mode change) is my perfect bar none multi-level light setup. All that and I needed another couple of hosts.

    Picked up an extra SureFire L1 10/65. Wanted an extra before they get too scarce. Just something about them, cant explain it.

    Oh my, this is a bad month for my wallet I just got some overtime paid and I wanted to buy myself and my girlfriend something nice because I worked late continuously the last couple weeks. Got her several nice gifts and ordered a Sunwayman V10R R5 for myself. I've had this one on my wish list for a while now and am interested to get my first flashlight with a magnetic control ring. I was tempted to buy the HDS Rotary (I really like my HDS Clicky), but I wanted to get a Sunwayman too, because I've read such great reviews on it. I'd better go get some duct tape to fix that leak in my wallet

    Surefire LumaMax LX2 to compliment my HDS Rotary, ... and to lighten my belt (when rotating my Malkoff HD XM-L) when I feel the need to do so!

    Now that I have (or found) the lights I need, ..... the FIRE SALE begins! ... LOL
