Thread: What 3 lights do you like/use the most?

    Default Re: What 3 lights do you like/use the most?

    It would have been interesting if the question had also asked what percentage of actual usage each light gets; for example, for me the approximate percentages would be:

    50% - 4Sevens Preon Revo (Never leaves my front pocket, used almost every day for peering into cabinets, etc.)

    30% - Zebralight SC51 (Always bring with me when I go anywhere at night)

    15% - Fenix LD40 (Used when I know in advance that I'll need a lot of light)

    5% - Other (Fenix E01 kept in my robe pocket)

    I've got two sets of 3. The three lights I use the most for practical reasons, and therefore appreciate and enjoy, and the 3 I LIKE the most, for their coolness factor, as measured by me.

    For the most used:

    1. NiteCore Defender Infinity
    2. SureFire L1
    3. Ra Clicky Tactical 140

    For their cool factor:

    1. SureFire A2 YG
    2. HDS High CRI Clicky
    3. SureFire E1E
    If we could get everyone in the world to close their eyes and imagine world peace for an hour, think about how serene it would be until the looting started. -Unknown

    I'll can only list mny first 2 "most used" lights since they are my EDC, but the third could be anything as I grab different lights at home all the time if I don't grab the EDC.

    A. ZebraLight SC60w
    B. Fenix LD01-SS

    Popular 3rd choice lights: SC600, C2 w/Malkoff, Jetbeam III-M, TK11-R2, TK35, V10R-Ti, Peak Logan, SF E1e ..... it does change alot though.

    1) ITP A3 - this little light is awesome. I carry it with me most of the time and of all my lights it gets the most use and covers most of what I need. I have other AAA lights and keep coming back to this one.

    2) Zebralight SC51 - I carry this if I need a pocket light with just a little more firepower than the A3. 1xAA format, puts out close to 200 lumens on an Eneloop, has a great interface, perfect clip, easy lockout, nice looking. Currently this would be my pick if somebody asked me - "If you could only have one flashlight, what would it be"?

    3) Third place gets more difficult but right now I would say the Download Pocket Rocket XM-L or the Zebralight SC600. Several other lights might also get included in this spot...

    My favorite three are:

    Sunwayman V10R Ti
    Zebralight H51F
    4sevens SS Revo

    I was hoping my Solarforce L2P with thrunite XML drop-in would be in the list but I wasn't overly crazy about either of them.

  10. #70

    Default Re: What 3 lights do you like/use the most?

    Fenix LD20
    Fenix TK12
    Solarforce L2P with Manafont XML dropin

    This is also all the torches I own . Hoping to swap the TK12 for the TK21 as it looks to be about the same size but more powerful.

    3 lights that I use the most:
    1. HDS Rotary
    2. 4sevens Quark AA^2 Tactical with flush switch (candle)
    3. Fenix TK30 Warm (modded)

  12. #72

    Default

    1) HDS EDC 200T
    2) HDS EDC 120E
    3) Fenix TK15

    At the moment I've working a lot of nights in the warehouse of the supermarket where I work. The lighting in the warehouse itself and outside is shoddy at best so they get a lot of use

    The two HDS lights are my primary and backup. The Fenix I keep for walking home and to light up any local criminals that might cause trouble and hopefully illuminate them to change their ways.

    Magcharger
    Sf-z2 incan
    Fenix-tk30
    I work nights so i walk to work on second shift and walk home in the ally at nights so i like to have a backup of lights the magcharger is for a weapon for things that go bump in the night so i can bump back

    Martac AAA for EDC
    Zebralight SC-51 -for night carry.

    Surefire 6p led-doesnt get much use, but its my first good flashlight. I was amazed at the output back then, and now I'm amazed that flashlights 1/3rd the size can have that kind of output.

    I can't narrow it down to three, so here are the four.

    TNC titanium C-series 18650 P60 host with XM-L 2.4A drop-in.
    Sunwayman V10R-Ti XP-G neutral white & bored to take 18350 cell.
    Mini Chimera w/ warm white MC-E
    Spy 007 w/ XP-G neutral white

    Hrmm... #1 and #2 are easy. My Fenix LD01 and my old-school 2C Mag Mod with a Lux III UW0H, 8 level nFlex driver run on 2x18650 (recently updated to 2x25500).

    As for #3... over the last three or four months, probably my Surefire C2 with a 3-mode XML drop-in.

    Before I got that light, #3 was probably my Milky-modded HDS with an SSC.

    I have a fairly modest collection but the three that I love are:

    Fenix PD31 (EDC)
    Q AA2 Tactical (Work)
    Pelican 2360

    I'm trading a 4sevens Qmini AA2 to my friend for a SF 6P LED. We'll see how much I like that. As my lighting needs are now covered, I will not be purchasing another flashlight until I can afford an HDS rotary, which at this rate could be years.

    The ones I use the most are:
    1. Brite Strike BD-HLS (rechargeable) - It is so tough I can just carry it everywhere on site with any weather and don't be worried about anything with it
    2. Fenix PD31 - I use this for internal inspections as I can use various degrees of output
    3. Surefire E2D LED defender (200 lumens) - When I stay on site longer and walk around - never know who's around

    The ones I like the most are:
    1. Surefire E2D LED defender
    2. Surefire LX2 Lumamax
    3. Brite Strike BD-HLS

    HDC EDC U60 (upgraded to K2).

    This is my primary light and the rest get less than 1% usage.

    1. Photon Rex rechargable - Believe it or not, with all of my $100+ lights, this one gets used the most. Bonus fun is hooking it up to another battery to recharge it - really cool.

    2. Peak Logan SS QTC - Recent addition but can't stop playing with the variable QTC.

    3. Luce de Notte - Sits on my nightstand and glows day and night.

    Around the house A modded Pentagon with a malkof m61HCRI.
    Gladius w/Creemator mod. Scorpion with Turbohead will likely take its place

    Fenix L1T - a great general use light, decent power and runtime without being too large.
    Fenix LD01 - A tiny pocket light with a fair amount of clout to it
    3D Maglite with terralux LED - perhaps not the fanciest or best light out there, but far more output and throw than anything else I own, all for cheaper than either of the Fenix lights...

    A special mention goes to my Petzl Tikka XP headlamp, which is indispensable when camping for trouble free light while you do all manner of tasks.

    1. Quark AA Tactical - always with me
    2. Surefire 6P - always in the truck
    3. Streamilght Stinger - in charger at the back door

    After seeing some of the lights fetured here I'm guessing this will all change quickly
