    SureFire could market that "fish light as straight baller, son", I guess ....

    Hopefully one day their will be a youtube video of someone using a flashlight on the end of their line to nail a monster fish, why not it's water proof just throw on a trailer hook. The question is if the light was turned on would this help attract a fish or the opposite.

    Nice! Wish I could order them.

    Really like the matte green...Looks like "Imperial Gaurd" armour, for all you Warhammer fans. Where can you see pics of the E1B's???

    To my eyes, the Matte green one looks very similar to the natural HA finish. IMO These are true collector's items. I would like to see a purple LX2 similar to the limited run SF's (Paul Kim Specials?) done a few years ago.

    That's pretty cool. I thought Surefire had given up on making flashlights that are not completely dull and boring. You don't see many special edition or unusual lights out of them these days. Unfortunately the dumb pocketclip they designed for the LX2 is going to scratch that finish on the tailcap.

    Hmmm,
    Do I get shot when I say "I think they are the uglyest lights I have ever seen" ?

    There's something about the one that looks like scales that floats my boat.

    See what I did there.....

    I was wondering if the special PK lights were still made but perhaps have gone lower profile. Over on the digital camera forums the U.S. Federal Trade Commission came down hard on the freebies and special editions that were given to mods, reviewers and fanboys.

    Unfortunately the dumb pocketclip they designed for the LX2 is going to scratch that finish on the tailcap.
    You can bend the clip away from the tailcap but it is very easy to break the clip. Fortunately, it is also easy to get a replacement from SF.

    Ooops, I'm sorry, I did not see the existing thread on these. I was poking around online doing the normal "SF-a-holic" type searches, and stumbled upon them.

    I do like the silver one with pink fishnets on, and am super tempted to buy the brown E1B sight unseen... I already have an LX2 and silver and black E1Bs, but there is always room for one (or seven) more Surefires, isn't there?

    Default Durability?

    Are these finishes less durable than normal Surefire anodizing? Thanks

    The LX2 on the right does look almost red/burgundy in color. But I think that's the 'matte brown' finished light.

    Those E1Bs look photoshopped to me. It'd be great to see actual lights in natural photos.

    Take a close look at the two pictures, both are identical except for the colour, good pick Al.

    They are identical in that they are both E1Bs, but they're not the same photo. The tailcaps are in different positions and the head on the top light is not screwed on as tightly as the bottom light.

    Actually, if you look real close at the blue one, the head isn't screwed on all the way and you can see the natural aluminum of the light at the neck of the threads...where as on the green one, you can just see some of the O-ring...different serial no.'s as well.

    Thanks, I was trying to figure that out myself. I can't decide if I like the green or BRown better. BUt "matte", those e1b's look kind of shiny. Are these coming this way from surefire, or being refinished by someone? That's awesome if these are factory finishes, because I know s.f can match ano color across an entire light when they want to. With my luck, I'd get a green tailcap, maroon head, & a trout body.

    These are definitely custom jobs, not coming directly from Surefire.

    I've just enlarged both pics and can now see the differences.
