    I still have my Surefire 6P and 9P, I think they have a new body now? the one I had is like over 10 years old...
    Can't believe Surefire is voted the 1st most "must-have" flash light list.

    Ra Twisty (TR-85)
    Elektrolumens Blaster NG
    Surefire A2
    Malkoff M60
    Surefire G2Z
    Surefire 6p

    In approximate inverse order I'd be willing to part with them; the Twisty is the last one I'd give up.

    Also, no love for Elektrolumens. This makes me sad. I've never been tempted to EDC a ROP, but I've carried my Blaster on occasion.

    Hello, thanks for considering it. (or having considered it).

    I like the idea of a MUST-HAVE list or even better, a list of the MOST POPULAR or similar (BEST SOLD, MOST LOVED, ..), but i dont agree that old people list their old lights which they had been using for years and this is already a 2 years old thread which aggravates and distorts the situation even more. Power LED lights is a rapidly evolving technology and you only need to see the CPF discussions to learn which are the flashlights of relevance and importance.

    Thanks god that all other inet TOP-rankings (of other stuff) are more realistic and uptodate.

    This listing reminds me of a hypothetical Top100 ATP world tour tennis player ranking where all points of all tennis players ever are constantly added and never deleted. Endless accumulation of points. By that, players like Ivan Lendl, Pete Sampras, John Connors and Björn Borg would still be in the Top10, although none of our days teenagers and twens who enter a tennis club out of interest and fun saw them playing live in action on TV while they do see the current Top10 playing live: Nadal, Dojkovic, Roger Federer. U.S.-teenagers would not even know who Ivan Lendl or Björn Borg was because of their nationality, whatever i mean by "their" pun intended. Personally I would love to see such a Top100 list and it would make us realize who the all time greatest tennis player in the world was and "still is" (still = they are still listed in a TOP list lol).

    If a currently updated ranking does not reflect the current real situation, then it is a worthless ranking with no real use. If that's what you want, then carry on. I dont mind i guess. Because it's not my time i am wasting.

    It is true, If I only knew back then when I was getting started into, it would have been prudent to keep things simple. A bored Surefire 6p and Maklkoff drop in, one handy AA that takes 14500s and one variable blaster of some kind (right now Eagletac M2C4) would have been basically enough to handle the vast majority of my real lighting needs. Except, of course, the desire to fiddle, experiment, upgrade, and just play around with lights.

    And, then there is the ultimate reason that this addiction is justified: to have lights around to give away. Got have something for the kids and grandchildren, (not to mention, nephews, neices, godchildren, brothers, sisters, parents, friends etc) hehehe

    Regarding "important" or "must have" flashlights for us flashaholics, there are different questions which should be adressed in different threads
    1. Flashlights of "historic" relevance
    2. Lights that should be included in every collection (customs excluded)
    3. The lights of the year


    #1 should list only milestones or classics of flashlight history like the Mini Maglite, Surefire 6P, the first light with High a Power LED, the first 100 Lumen light, ... This should not be a endless list of lights someone just bought, it should end in a general consensus of the cpf members.

    #2 should be more general like "every flashaholic should have at least one P60 host" and not list specific lights like "Surefire C2 HA" or "Malkoff M61WL". It should be a more general consensus that gives every collector the necessary freedom for a individual decision.

    This thread is rather useless at the moment, because everybody just lists the lights he/she owns or has recently bought.

    alright, here goes:
    Surefire 6P, because I own several and it's a classic, the first "tactical" 2xCR123 flashlight
    Surefire 8NX because I own one and it's a nitrolon classic
    Surefire 8X because I own one and it's the 8NX's predecessor
    Surefire 9AN because I own one and it's one out of 4 incandescent models with a high/low bulb, making it way cooler than all the above listed lights
    Surefire 9N because I own one and I like its look more than the 9AN's, plus it's older
    alright, let's go to some other brands:
    Fenix P3D rebel 100 edition, because it was the first light in this class to claim 200 lumens output, and it was the first really expensive light I ever owned
    Fenix T1 because I own one and it was (one of?) the first 2xCR123 tactical light(s?) with a high power LED, establishing what is now a whole category of lights that is now virtually unmanageable
    Fenix TK20 because I own one and there's no other light like it as yet
    Liteflux LF2XT, you guessed it, I own one
    Eagletac M2C4 because it was the first light featuring two 18650 batteries side-by-side, and I own one

    Surefire LX2 because of the two-stage tailcap. I love this light.
    Fenix TK41 because of the awesome throw that comes without any worries about a multiple Li-ion battery setup (I only trust single cell Li-ion lights, mmmkay?)
    Fenix LD01 (XP-E R2), Fenix LD20 (XR-E Q5), Olight M20S (XP-G R5), Jetbeam RRT-0 (XP-G R5), Maelstrom G5 (XP-G R5), Maelstrom X7 (XM-L T6), Wolf-Eyes Krait (XM-L T6), Mag 4D/6D (incan), Mini Mag 2AA (incan), Photon Proton Pro UV, Mammut Lucido TXlite

    Surefire 6P because I had one and lost it (left it under the bonnet of my Landcruiser).

    TK20 - this is truly build like a tank. Very thick sidewall and awesome light in general. Really a "must have"

    TK21 - Again awesome light. Very bright at high settings. Very well build as well.

    I should also place a vote for the following (I would never part with) lights...

    SureFire 9N
    Streamlight Ultra Stinger
    Klarus XT11

    (I'd previously voted for the Jet 3M, A2 & L1)

    These have been said by many, but I'll add my vote anyway.

    4 Sevens Quark X 123^2 for my pocket
    4 Sevens Quark Pro QP2A-X for my EDC bag
    Fenix LD20 for my bedstand
    Fenix LD10 for backup

    Honorable mention: Panthervision LED Powercap

    I've got others, and they get used, but these are the ones I wouldn't do without.

    Use my Zebralight H51c (DC-Fixed) daily, if it broke/got lost, I would buy a second without hesitation.

    Also, I think a vote for the Fenix TK20- durable, simple UI, takes AA's, great colour rendering, used whenever the floody ZL can't put out light far enough.

    1. HDS Rotary - despite it not having a clip, I feel this is a must for me. It has a low-low and a very good high.

    2. Surefire C2 - I could keep current with all the latest and greatest LED by just getting a new drop-in (provided they are still being made in the future given that Surefire have dropped all the P60 line).
