    light(s) that is [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] the best average between throw & flood at each end of the price spectrum.

    Purhaps a Longbow? Its not the cheapest by any means, but you can customize it with different relectors, optics, PR head.

    How about a 3d mag converted to lux3 running direct drive? You didn't specify non-mod...

    Probably one of the best lights for a non-flashaholic.

    I done a search thru the threads, but I only have limited time on the pc, so I was wondering if someone could point me to where the longbow would be available. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Well, at under $40, I'd imagine the Nuwai Quantum III would be pretty tough to beat on the lower end of the price scale. And though I haven't actually seen one, the Quantum I would probably be very smilarly good for a few dollars less. If you don't might a longer light, the Inova XO is pretty cool for under $50.

    On the higher end, I've looked over most of the info out there and haven't found what I'm looking for. The closest would be the Surefire L2 but I don't care for what it looks like at all. And I think it could be smaller. I'd like a 2x123 light, preferably just slightly smaller than the Inova X5T running a hard driven Lux 3 light that has at least two power settings. It would have a tailpiece that had two detended 'tighten down' points and then a clickie. The high power level would be about 80 lumens and the low would be about 5 lumens.

    Where can you get a QIII for under $40? I've been looking for a good deal on one of these.

    Thanks,

    Hard to go wrong with a streamlight 2L 3watt task light 70.00 at Bright Guy will give you a high and low beam.

    On the other end you could get a Surefire L2 for 150.00 or a U2 for 270.00 both have a high and low beam, (with the U2 having several) Bright"]http://www.brightguy.com/detail_int.php?Sku=STR51008]Bright Guy[/url]
