    I had the same failure with a protected 17670 once. Since then, it’s unprotected or primaries for carry lights.

    I emailed our inside sales rep at SF and they have no ETA for this light.

    SF rep I talked to wouldn't give me an ETA either, but did assure me this light is happening.

    You have to check an e-oath box now at checkout, swearing that you will never use any rechargeables with this light, in any capacity.

    So appears some new models coming out utilizing the 2 stage tailcap again. A single and 2 cell version. 1200 lumens from an e series platform. Interested to see if and when this comes about. Maybe surefire is going to go back to when they were good.

    I should add that they did say the item should be available by end of the year.

    TR stating surefire is estimating shipping before December 1st. So we may have these by first of the year. But who really knows.

    As far as rechargeable goes, surefire introduced a scoutlight that supports an 18650 as well as cr123s.
    I would imagine that this would support a 16650.

    Here's one, this is a surprising development to me. It's also very encouraging with regard to their 18650s, they have probably tested them extensively on heavy-recoil platforms to make sure they can take the abuse.

    Thanks! SF is definitely doing some great things with their new lights.

    Hmmm. Makes me think the new 1200 lumen tir handheld that's coming out may just use 18650s.

    Same here, and I really like that x series head with an e series tail.

    SF released their 2018 price list.

    Tactician is definitely on there. It's listed as 800 lumens instead of 700.

    Certain models like the new 1500 lumens Fury is listed as "Duel Fuel" which accepts the 18650 as well as CR123.

    The combination of form factor and user interface makes this light. The Tactician is quite similar to the Elzetta Bravo in terms of output and user interface, but the Elzetta, while having a superior build quality, lacks the sleek, pocket friendly design.

    Agreed. While the build quality of the Elzetta Bravo is definitely superior, I never carry mine because of the wide AVS head. This looks like an interesting light although I think I'll probably end up going with the EDCL-L2 they're touting.

    Now you're talkin...

    I think we're asking for an updated A2 aviator with a high low ring.

    Yes. 800 lumens of flood with a tad of throw. Works for me. I do hope the low is 15 and not 5 though.

    Very useful configuration. Surefire's new products have piqued my interest.
