    Since these are "flashoholic" lights,
    A Lummi Wee, I keep mine on my keychain, amazing little light, and reasonable price IMO

    On the other end a SPY007. For all real use purposes, this should fit the bill.

    I just lost my job and yet still bought a Tri-V because I thought to myself "I must have it!"

    After looking at the thread descibing it I think just choosing to have one might be all the qualification you need for a new job.

    You lost your job and went out and bought a $2000 light?? What kind of severance package did you get!!

    Very nice and congratulations on getting a Tri-V. I'd love to have one, but it's just a dream for me..the amount of disposable income I'd have to have to justify a $2000 light to my wife would be....well, let's just say I won't be getting one anytime soon..

    Check back in once you get it and let me know if it is a keeper... I have a feeling we'll be hearing from you soon.

    Well, I got my last check, my entertainment pay and my room deposit back. You may think I'm joking but I'd rather have a good wife than the Tri-V, so if anyone has one, I'll offer it up for trade! Please send me PM of what she looks like, but more importantly, how is her cooking!

    I just realized my first post was vague.
    Here are my model specific votes.
    1) Muyshondt Nautilus
    2) HDS/Ra Clickie Executive
    3) Surefire E1B
    Edit: Surefire got me hooked on CR123 long time! I also much prefer 1 battery lights in a one handed operation, small form/carry factor, coupled with multiple light levels, combined with battery vampire characteristics. Impeccable credentials and successful and innovative history of design, reliablility and customer service are a MUST, of course. (Not sure if the Nautilus qualifies on all the requisite points anymore since Enrique, sadly, seems to be out of the business now. Nevertheless, my Muyshondt Nautilus Ti is the jewel of my collection. Absolutely perfectly gorgeous in every way. Thanks Muyshondt!)
    2nd Edit: Credit also goes to carrot for turning me on to Muyshondt. Excelsior!

    I would love a Tri-V and yeah it's the stratosphere for a flashlight ... but man word to the wise, you go shopping for an engagement ring and it makes all of the costs from this whole hobby look like pocket change

    Oh yeah, my vote! You hear about them all the time and you think yeah yeah, but when you finally get one you understand: Surefire A2

    Except that I can make it myself since my full time job used to be as a jeweler! Still, I'd hope that anyone trading a wife for my Tri-V would be nice enough to include the ring too!

    Another light I want to make sure I'm on record for is my cute little EZCR2w watchpocket light!

    Damn. Currently available constriction takes the Muyshondt off the list. Ah well.
    Any chance of a "mention" addition to the list?

    This is not another vote but just a reminder to those who know. The HDS/Ra Clicky Exective is just as good as having a battery tester. Just another reason I voted for the HDS/Ra. I'm just as certain (even though I don't have a Tactical), that the HDS/Ra Tactical is also as good in the function of battery tester. HDS /Ra rah rah!

    I will vote for the Malkoff MD3 Wildcat V2. After using this beast and experiencing the overbuilt ultimate quality, massive output and compact size, I have come to realise that nothing I have experienced compares!! And with the modularity options available, CR123's or 18500/18650's are fully supported.

    Imagine a Fenix TK40 but with more power, much better quality and half the size!!!

    EZCR2 Added. So both the EZAA and EZCR2 are must-haves for your? Just curious, with the Aeon and 4Sevens CR2 MiNi around, what is the special attraction to the EZCR2?

    Yep - unfortunately the Nautilus is no longer available. At least the Aeon is still available. Not sure how long that will last - I would recommend the Aeon to anyone. Mine is currently at Milky Labs getting a neutral R4 XP-G and matching reflector...

    In the interest of accuracy, I'd like to withdraw my vote for the H501. I've been without it for about 2 weeks now and hardly miss it. It's the strangest thing, when I had it, it was the greatest thing in the world. Now my photon freedom does pretty much the same thing and I hardly notice the difference...

    I prefer lights that do one job and do it well. Hence,
    (1) Arc AAA-P
    (2) Peak Eiger powe #8 in warm tint
    (3) Quark AA

    Must have for me is the Muyshundot Aeon. I have it in my pocket all the time. After that I like the Fenix TK 20 and the TK 30. Both have uses. I live on a wooded seven acres and sometimes you want a throw in a light other times you want a bit more floody.
    I am still looking for what lights to buy
