my name is eddie and im brand new to this message board. I was pretty astonished when i came onto this board and realized that i was a "flashaholic" still in the closet. lol
I think it started with boy scouts. i was always the kid with the best flashlights.
then i became an EMT and we all know emergency services needs a good light
then i got my pilots license and had some fun playing with red lenses.
now, my most recent job (temporary thing, i hope) is delivering pizza, and i need to find addreses's.. lol
well, ive had a number of lights over the years, most of them being maglites..
everything from the aaa solitare to the 6 d
my more recent aquisitions include a sure fire 6p, and two g2's
ive also had a limited experiance with streamlight. i had a 3 a twin task that "got lost on the parkway" and a stylus 3 aaaa penlight that works great.
im thinking about a bigger rechargable light similar in size to a 3d.
ive pretty much narrowed it down to a mag charger or an ultra stinger.
ive read up breifly on the inefficency of the candle power system when comparing two different lights.
i see that mag has updated their website and has a 40,000 cp/195 lumens rating on their bulb.
streamlight doesnt list their lumens, but says 75,000 cp
i know both of these companies produce quality products so im kinda at a loss as to which is better, i need the best all around.. ie;can take a beating, still shine brightly
what are your opionions on the two?
