It appears that I experienced a previously undetected communication error between my combination rule and ocular data collector, thus introducing a +3/16" error into my measurement.
I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and trust that everyone will find solace in the knowledge that I was not involved with designing any civil structures during this time.
Don, if you need any assistance with spec'ing your next light, I'm available!
Good people need to be there for each other. It's the only way to stay sane in a sometimes insane world.
On a totally different topic (thank goodness ): Don, was there a reason you opted to not have the collar ring on the 2xAA Pak like there is on the 1x123 Pak? I mean, I guess it's a vestigial item since it's basically a Surefire E-Series hard-stop for the head to butt against when installed, modified so it no longer serves that purpose, but even though it's non-functional at this point it somehow still looks like it ought to be there.
In the case of the 2xAA pak, going to a full collar diameter would require turning the part from a larger diameter bar stock which would add to the cost of the part due to longer machining time and more material requirement.
One of the reasons I kept it on the 1x123 pak was that it serves as the land for the clip and were it not there, it would be more difficult to lead the clip over the intended attachment area.
I thought of significant shrinkage under water. But probably not with yours then. After all, we're talking titanium
There is a type of perfection that transcends the quest for lumens. Buying a $250 1-cell light for "lum factor" is like buying a $250 single malt Scotch for the alcohol content.
It's always darkest just before it goes pitch black.
My shoes are too tight. But it doesn't matter, because I have forgotten how to dance.
Regarding the Twisty Pak option, you could go with something more along the lines of the original Aleph design, with a modular tailswitch modeled after the ones on the SF E-series. There could be bare metal tailcaps that only function as twisties, and tailcaps with clicky-switches in them so they can be unscrewed a little as a lockout function. Functionally speaking, I think having a tail-operated twisty makes more sense than a head-operated twisty, because I always seem to have the head pointed at the palm of my hand when I twist it, and when the light comes on it's blinding for a second until I point it somewhere else.

EM sent for one 2xAA McClickie pack!!
eMail sent for one Ti 2xAA McClickie Pak.
(Also emailed Paypal confirmation this morning).
Got my Ti 2AA Pak the other day and absolutely love it. A work of art and looks great with my Haiku BB Head.
Is there any chance that i can get this pak with out the clip ?
would my surefire E2L AA Outdoorsman head work on this pack?
Received my third one this past week for a family member. Set it up like the previous two with a Ti VME head, M31LL, borofloat lens (with no coating to mess up), and Eneloop batteries/charger. That should be good to go for the storm season or a sunspot/CME event.
First post in this thread for 2012!!!
E-mail sent for one x Ti 2xAA McClickie Pak
Arrived safely downunder.
Extremely good match for the two sundrop XR-U heads.
Is the Ti 2xAA McClickie pak compatible with a Haiku XML head and/or a Mule Hi CRI Nichia 119 head?
Thanks for the response Don. I thought this was the case, but wanted to make sure.
I will be ordering a 2xAA pak soon.
Don, how come mode changing with this body/switch is just a simple light tap versus the 1xCR123 pak?
Wait a minute. Let me qualify that a bit more in a moment.
What I mean is in momentary on -- with the light off, I can just light tap it in momentary on and it switches modes whereas this was much more difficult with the 1xCR123 body?
To put in perspective, if I wanted to signal someone with a few quick flashes, the 2xAA would switch modes whereas the 1xCR123 would keep mode.
*** Never mind that. I'm crazy. The other lights do that too....
