Thread: What was the ONE light that got you hooked...

    Fenix LD10. And these fora.

    When I lost the LD10 I actually contacted FenixOutfitters to find out if they had one (the model had been discontinued) and they had some left and they even checked through them to make sure I got one without a green or blue tint to the light. (I asked)

    Love this little guy.

    And his new pals: the LD01, the Quark X AA2 Neutral White; the ThruNite Ti, which I got a really good deal on and is on it's way for sure; and the big throwy one I haven't picked out yet. And, well, some others. For stuff.

    And I just flat enjoy reading about flashlights.

    It started with the SureFire G2. The super bright (at the time) 65 Lumens got me hooked. About a week later I bought a Z2. And then the LED flashlights arrived!

    I'm not sure, exactly. I bought a 6D Mag around 2004 that sparked my interest in CPF and more modern flashlights. My first 123 light was a Streamlight Scorpion, so I guess you could say that's the one that did it for me. But really, I kept going through a parade of various Surefire incans until I bought a used U2 two years ago. That's the first light I've really fallen in love with.
    Do something alone and it's weird, do it with others and it's a club.

    For me it was the now discontinued Fenix TK 20 that got me really hooked.

    One day I had been wasting time on the net and I happened upon a review of the Lumii Raw NS. It was love at first sight. Some how I managed to talk my wife into getting it as a early anaversary gift for me. I'm sure she regrets that It's been all down hill since then. Soo many cool lights to be had! But at least it's not dark going down that hill

    Maglite Mini Maglite AA back in 1991 which stunned me back then.

    Of course things have moved on especially in the last 5 years.

    But that is the baby that did it for me.
    Maglite MiniMag AA. Terralux LED conversion+Tail cap switch. Maglite 6D+LED TLE310 LED Conversion module, Fenix E15, LED Lenser M17R. Maglite 3 x AA+Hahnel LSD NiMH cells.

    The Surefire 6P was my first high end light. I bought it in 2000 before my second deployment. It went through bulbs fast and batteries faster, but man was it a great light for the time. It now has a revered spot in my military display right next to my heavily abused Benchmade 9050 AFO...

    The first light that really got me hooked was a Surefire 6P incan. long since converted to LED. & continuously upgraded. At present with a Malkoff M61W. which is about 3900K. & still looks 'killer'!

    The one that got me hooked was the Surefire E1B.

    A Surefire 6P with a Malkoff M60 is responsible for my flashaholism.

    I've always liked flashlights ever since the 1970s but what got me upgrading all the old stuff was a Surefire M951 with the 125 lumen incan head. Compared to the Maglites of the day, that thing rocked!

    My Fenix PD31. I bought it a couple months ago and I've realized the importance of carrying a good light every day.

    I've been hooked on flashlights for a long time. I've always had Maglights and such. I only recently started edc-ing a flashlight, a Streamlight Microstream. After spending a few days reading posts here I ordered a FourSevens Mini ML-X. It should arrive today or Monday. I'm so excited, I think I'm hooked. My wife is going to kill me. LOL

    The first LED light I purchased was a Fenix P1D, but I eventually purchased a P2D Q5.

    I'm currently LEDless, and I'm hoping to own a HDS 120 high-cri.
