I'm new looking for a few flashlights to get me started and SO MUCH information. I've been reading and watching YouTube for a few days but feel the need to pull the trigger pretty soon. I'm so amazed by all the companies I had no idea about. I was always under the assumption that Surefire was the end all be all of flashlights (I'm coming from a shooting background, so maybe that's why).
So could you guys give me a kind of breakdown on where manufacturers/makers rank in quality levels (lower, mid-level, high end)?
