Hello my fellow flashoholics! I have a story about my personal experience with Peak which I would like to share with you. I'd also like to ask you a question..
Firstly, a little background about my love for not only Peak but all American made lights. I, personally, am addicted to the simplicity and reliability of the Peak offerings. There is no other light, that I have yet owned, that I have more confidence to be used as a bulletproof backup light. Many think that the QTC in even the generation two QTC lights has plenty of room for improvement and I agree. But the fact is, when I need lumens to come out of the end of a flashlight, and I need that simple task to happen every time, I am more confident in the Eiger series than any other. I have actually tried to kill a SS AAA Eiger by throwing it with all of my might repeatedly against concrete with no success. Granted, that particular Eiger has seen better days cosmetically but it still functions just fine. The Eiger in has since been gifted and is still in service. It's new owner knows what I did to the light and says that it only adds to it's personal value which really warms me inside.
Ok now, on to the meat and potatoes.. If Peak were to make a few Eiger style, or any style for that matter, QTC lights in titanium and copper, I believe that they would sell like hotcakes. American made, bulletproof and great prices to boot.. What's not to like? I'll be honest here. Their website sucks and until recently, they had no customer service to speak of...
Flashoholics have been itching for a good copper light since the Maratac AAA and who the heck doesn't like titanium? I am in love with the properties of titanium and have never even owned a titanium light. (That is until my DQG III arrives ) I'll personally take a copper and titanium in 10180, 10280, and maybe even AAA flavor. A lug body would be a must for my purposes to be used as a straight hanging neck light. THAT is where my SS, 10180, Nichia 219, Eiger lives.. Around my neck. While this only happened recently, I find it to be perfect for this. Even some 10180 and 10280 lug bodies in aluminum would be great for a neck chain as it would save a little weight compared to the stainless steel option. It could also appeal to a larger crowd because of the lower metal costs as opposed, to say, titanium. Maybe some new options are already on the horizon.. Who knows?..
So I guess the real question is.. What would YOU like to see Peak bring to the table next? A few more metal choices like myself or maybe something completely different? I would love to hear you thoughts and experiences. Bring 'em on!
