    Christo Pull Hair WITHDRAWN McGizmo Ti-PD S

    Can't believe I'm doing this, but I've got my eye on something else.

    Up for sale is my prized McGizmo Ti-PD S from the final run of them.

    Been a faithful companion for 4 years now.










    Like most Ti lights there are some very minor scuffs, but no dings.

    Asking $800 $725 $695 $675 $650 via paypal. Price includes USPS priority shipping included to CONUS verified Pay Pal accounts only.

    Thanks for looking,
    Tim

    Never thought I'd see one of these sit on the market for more than a couple hours.

    It is NOT pure flood. It reaches out very effectively to 150 - 200 feet on high.

    So the beam pattern is like the present Haiku? What emitter does it have?

    Stock PD-S lights have a Seoul emitter (that's what the "S" stands for in PD-S). Great all purpose beam: nice low, nice high. Easily upgradeable. I'd take a Ti PD-S over TWO Haiku's, personally.

    Ben, I'll completely agree with AWTYD's observation above...when push come to shove, the two McGizmo in my collection that I will NEVER sell are my LS20 and PD-S...and this one is being offered at a great price now, seriously you should go grab this!

    Doesn't make any difference what the price was back then. It's what they're worth in today's value. And in my opinion, they are just better EDC's. But to answer your question, I think they listed for about $425, maybe?

    Three piece design, I thought they were $475 or $525?

    EDIT, I was wrong.

    This light is nearly down to the winning bid I paid to get my PD-S during the last McGizmo auction in 2009. Given how much rarer they are nowadays, the remaining price difference is basically meaningless. I'm really surprised nobody's jumped on this.

    Yes, the beam pattern is very similar to the Haiku. The hotspot is a bit more defined, and the spill isn't quite as bright, but that's it. The driver can be modified to increase the current on the high setting to make it comparable or brighter than a Haiku, if desired.

    Thanks for all those information.
    As it stands without any modifications, can this take a RCR123 3.7v rechargeable?
    What sort of runtime can I expect on high with a primary CR123a?

    Every one of these lights is a piece of history, nevermind that it still holds it's own as a top end performer.

    For me, the whole thing comes down to the PD idea, and how ingenious it really is. You gotta have a Ti PD, or a Ti PD Mule if you really want a piece of real McGizmo. These are his crowning achievements...two levels progressive twisty with instant on both levels from the piston. Checkmate. Of course, the LS20/27 are designs that take this idea and add yet another level...but the main idea is the piston drive giving you access to both levels via either the twist or the push.

    Rechargeablea are NO problem. They're all I've ever run in it. Run time on a primary is about an hour on high.

    I'm interested, are the ti-pd's variable brightness or just 2 level?

    They are 2 level slectable either by pressing the piston lightly for low and harder for high. This is temporary mode and the light will only stay on while the piston is depressed. You can also twist the head and select both levels depending on how far you twist the head in. In this mode the light stays on until you unscrew the head until the light goes off.
