    I really don't think so. If you were to ask Henry if he felt NovaTacs belonged in this thread, I have a feeling he'd have a few choice words for you...

    I'm not gonna freak out if there's some Novatacs slipping into the thread, but after doing some searching and reading I'm of the general opinion that they don't belong here, and would rather see the true HDS creations. Soo, if you've got a family shot of Ras and a there happens to be Novatac in there too, ok, but please don't post a picture specifically of a Novatac collection. That's for another thread.

    Ok, that's out of the way, back to the fun stuff!

    Thanks for posting that! I will likely do something very similar. Generally, the Ra will be in my pocket, but when it isn't it needs to be easy to get at on my bag. That looks like the ticket.

    Since we're talking about a line of lights he designed himself, then realized he had a better way of doing things I'd say his first crop of kids (Novatacs) turned out to be less than what he'd like people to remember him for and set out to raise the next ones better (HDS/Ra) so that they were a bigger benefit to society.

    Very nice bigfoot! Isn't the high CRI great? And I still dig those AlTiN bezels, super stealthy. I kinda wish I had gotten one of those on my custom 140...oh wait, I did. Pete has it now.

    I'd love to order up something new, but for now my collection is a party of one:

    EDC Ultimate 60 #1692


    This is before the darkzero mod which included a high cri warm white seoul and McR reflector / glowring.

    Maybe my next should be a Ra clickie dressed up to match this one...

    Yeah, I did, but now it's in Australia as a result of trading it off to get my Ti Clicky!

    I really hope Henry will release a newer, brighter (200 lumens+) version of the HDS EDC soon .. I will be all over it!

    My small collection started with the HDS EDC Ultimate 60 and later added an Ra Twisty 100 TW (#835) and an Ra Clicky 140 Cn (#6042).

    Bought this AF-S 16-85mm for my D90. First attempt with it. There's a ton more detail in the shot, but the required sizing reduces it drastically. Anyways - my twins.

    Some additional shots of my HDS High CRI Clicky. Took a photo with the light on default "medium" mode, pointing at the map, to show how it renders colors so well.
