Until recently, I hadn't used my PD lights in a long time. Newer lights with latching switches and more modes (or infinite modes) grabbed my attention, and my PDs only came off the shelf for periodic dusting. Meanwhile, I've been on the lookout for well-built two-mode twisties a-la the Muyshondt Aeon, and not having much luck finding any. (there's the ThruNite Ti, but it's a cheap little thing that isn't nearly as satisfying to use as an Aeon is.)
After a couple recent acquisitions, my internal obsession-meter hit the redzone and all my lights were dug out from their various hidey-holes to be evaluated for selling. I've actually considered selling my PDs, which is something I never thought I would do. Then my computer crashed and I had to dig around inside the case to free a stuck fan. In the process of doing that, I needed a light, and for whatever reason I grabbed my McLux3-T, which is so precious and rare I basically never use it for anything.
That brief usage of my McLux3-T reminded me that my PD lights are well-built two-mode twisties, and a couple bits flipped in my brain. For some reason I'd always thought of my PDs as being two-mode momentary lights with a twisty option, but now I find myself thinking about them as two-mode twisty lights with a momentary option. Given my current preference for two-mode twisties, my PD lights suddenly fit back into my EDC usage a whole lot better.
So I'm curious, how do other people think about (and use) their PD lights: as two-mode twisty lights with a momentary option, or as two-mode momentary-on lights with a twisty option?
