    I've got:

    PT Eos 50lm
    Petzl Tikkina
    Petzl Tikka plus (old one)
    Zebralight H30
    Silva Siju

    I had a PT Apex, but sold it as I didn't like the beam (horrible, guess I was unlucky there and taking it apart didn't resolve the issue. I also had an old MYO XP, which died and went to headlamp heaven.

    The Eos is nice, but feels a little bulky on the forehead.

    I am impressed with the little Tikkina, no messing about or high tec multiple modes, just high mode to let you walk about, low mode to read or for inside the tent. No annoying strobes or SOS!

    The old Tikka Plus now resides in the glovebox of the car in case of breakdown. Interesting to note that with LED advancements the Tikkina above is brighter but has half the LED number!

    The Zebralight H30 is my most used headlamp, for close work and reading it cannot be beaten by the others I own. Low for reading, mid for walking in the woods and high for anytime I want to light up a big area. Although I have noticed a very light PWM flicker on low mode, you really have to look for it but it is there.

    The Silva Siju is a little gem, totally ultralight and all I take with me on mid-summer backpacking expeditions where over here in the UK we only have 4 hours of darkness in June.

    My two sheckels.
    I like decent lights for decent nights.

    How'd you rate the HL20? I've got my eye on it at the moment.

    We're here to help. Although we can be a pretty opinionated bunch! It's all good though.

    Check out the new Zebralights and Sparks; after I got my H51w I immediately retired or repurposed all my old headlamps, including the PT's and BD's I had. IMHO, for a general purpose headlamp, nothing out there right now beats a Zebra or a Spark.
    What? Me? Derail a thread?

    Thank You gcbryan and B0wz3r, I appreciate your +ve comments! As I had been just a regular bystander of this forum for some time, I noticed not only that members are opinionated, knowledgable and most importantly, respectable to one another! I'm sure I can find a spot in here where I can be enlightened by all of you!!

    Quite a few, but I've gifted away most that aren't in use:

    Little Monkey neutral Hurricane (just perfect, use it for hiking and skiing)
    2 PT Apexes (one with a neutral XP-E and one with a High cri Seoul), the wife has a 130 lumen Seoul one (she hasn't asked for it modded...)
    Zebralight H501W and H31W (both are great a see lots of use)
    2 Petzls as spares in the mountain cabin
    Pelican headlamp for diving
    An unknown brand 18650 headlamp in the toolbox
    A rechargeable Nuwai?
    A couple of 3AAA headlamps (don't remember the brand)
    My 6 year old daughter has an Alpkit gamma which is pretty good

    I'ev got three, a Photon Fusion, Energizer Uiltimate and an Inova 24/7. The Photon and the Energizer are in the shop for warranty work. Although the Inova is pretty good in a pinch, it's got rather limited out put. Time to look at Petzl and the rest.

    Probably a dozen or so mostly Energizer & Ray-O-Vac (3AAA) stuff as I usually buy a new one for hunting season each year, due to me either forgetting it at home cause it's not with my gear or since they come with batts anyway . I did just pick up a Remington (Ray-O-Vac) 150L 4AA unit that's OK so far and I have a Foxfury I'll use on my fire helmet if I'm the OIC. I want to get a SF just not sure which variant probably a Saint
    SF 6P/G2/E2e/E2d/E2DL/E1e/L2/A2-PP(R)/A2(G)/L1(R)/L1(G)/M95/KL4(x2)/KL4(Blk)
    Gladius,Inova X5(R),Microlight(G)

    5 !.... or maybe 3

    After I got my first Zebralight headlamp, which is a H51fc, I retired my two UltraFire

    Then I get Spark ST6-460NW, later a Zebralight H600 (put one Fenix diffuser on it, best of both worlds)

    I gave all my old headlamps away, can't remember their names, all very nice for the time of purchase, 3 AA lights 50+$ a pop, petzl, princton tek, etc. Now I have a Zebralight H51Fc clipped in my pocket, a spare Eneloop in the watch pocket of my jeans, and I've no idea where the headband went; heaflamp clips to the underside of my.cap when I need a headlamp. Minimal/perfect.
    The brighter the light, the darker the shadow.

    I have no idea how many I own but:
    (just the ones in reach...)


    Very Large pic:

    Besides the few lights in the picture:

    in the van: 4 (coleman, energizer, etc)

    in the truck: 3 - one is a led lenser with focus

    In my cave equipment :
    Modified Sten (reflectors and leds),
    a couple of back-up lights...one is a sten

    Kids(2) each have 2 or 3

    Plus I have some home built :
    one is a 10 watt helmet light for 4-wheeling at night
    (it is brighter than the 4 wheelers head lights)
    Just so you know, I'm pretty sure all of those are fakes. If you send them to me, I can authenticate them for you.

    I have about 30 HL of all different brands that have been accumulated over the years and I haven't managed to offload them yet, but the only four that actually get used are my ZL H51w's, a ZL H50 and a PT EOS-R 50.

    Sometimes it's a long road to find the perfect headlamp for your needs, the ZL H51w isn't perfect, but it's the closest I've find yet.
    Is that a torch in your pocket or are you just pleased to see me?

    One, Surefire Minimus. Got it mostly to use when hiking and in that aspect it works well. Only wish it had some sort of battery 'lock out' to prevent accidental activation while in the backpack.

    2 X Quark 123^2 Cree XP-E R2 with prism and headband kit

    Prism kit was free with purchase so I never felt a need to get true headlamp yet, although I am looking at the SC600 and Niteize strap.
