    Fenix PD36R USB-C Rechargeable Flashlight

    I've grown somewhat selective in what I agree to review. Like so many "old timers" here, I have figured out what I like and not much catches my attention. Don't mean to sound snobby – not at all – just 64 years young and set in my ways. And my reviews are purely from an everyman's perspective –...

    Fenix E05R Mini-Review

    Please know that Fenix supplied this light to me in exchange for my honest opinion and review. (I apologize that I couldn't get the photos to flow with the text. Every time I tried to link to a photo, the remaining text all took on the url of the photo link.) After about 13 years of...

    Sold/Expired Haiku, Hive, XPL4200

    SOLD. Needs little introduction. No deep scratches or marks - in fact, I can't really find any marks. I have bridged the points to make it programmable, and I set it up basically like the 3S converter - the lowest low, medium at about 25%, and full blast on high. Mode memory - remembers the...

    Amazing Laulima Metal Craft Aluminum Ion

    These are truly the good old days of flashlights/torches. And it’s a tough space for the builders, as mass-produced, imported lights capture the attention of the masses, and make it tough for custom builders in the US and other countries. For custom builders to differentiate themselves, they...

    Sold/Expired SOLD - Laulima Metal Craft Bronze Ion

    Sold - Laulima Satin Bronze Ion Sweet light - just heavier than I prefer. Thankful that I’m getting this same light in aluminum. It is an amazing light! A bit of patina beginning to form. I’ve never carried it. $360 $340 shipped in the 50 US States. I pay PayPal fees. No international...

    FENIX E12 V2

    (Up front disclosure – this light was supplied for free for review. I received no other compensation.) I’m 63 and pretty much settled with my light collection. Most of my lights are customs, and I rarely ever purchase or review any production lights. But when I was contacted about reviewing...

    Sold/Expired All sold - Okluma DC0 TI

    A couple of really special lights that deserve to be carried. I love both of these but they just "sit" and they should be used. Prices are shipped USPS Priority, insured, PayPal fees paid. If you want a different shipping method, the difference in cost will be your responsibility. I'd really...

    Sold/Expired All sold - Garage sale - HDS Tactical Rotary & 4/7 Preon MKKIII in Ti

    Another unused light going up - the HDS Tactical Rotary 250. This light is 6.5 years old - I reviewed it for The Firearm Blog HERE. I put itts through its paces and it didn't miss a beat. There's a small gouge on the tail cap - the AITN coating on the bezel ring has a few spots. But it...

    Sold/Expired SOLD - Tana Triple Haiku

    Sold Won't go into a long story - but I have 2 of these plus a stock XPL Haiku, and this one NEVER gets used. It's in very good condition. No gouges or nicks or scratches. Maybe some surface marks, but they come from Don with minor surface marks. Tale of the tape - Triple Nichia 219B...

    7 day rotation - updated - how many days in a row can you carry a different light?

    Happy Monday, all! This isn't intended to be a "hey, look at what I have" post. Like many of you, I'm blessed with a collection of lights that includes many that are not carried. But as I was looking through my favorites, I lined up a "7 Day Carry" rotation. Here they are - from Right to...

    Sold/Expired SOLD - Major price drop - HDS "High Noon" Executive

    Sold In case anyone is concerned over the small abrasion, I'm going to drop the price to $225. Considerably less than I paid for it on the used market. Tidying up the stable. Seems all I ever use are my Nichia NB40 Rotary and my Panda SS40. Yeah, I know - they are hard to get - but Hogo and...

    Sold/Expired SOLD - HDS “Panda” Rotary, NLT, Flush

    SOLD Bought this light to use for early morning runs, then stopped running. Too nice a light to sit on the nightstand. It’s basically new and I have all the original stuff, including the package and battery. You’d pay (if you could get it) $450 shipped for this. I have NEVER carried this...

    Old stuff that works makes me happy - how about you?

    Not sure what's prompting me to post a thread, but what the heck - it's the Cafe and you all are bound to have much to add. And this isn't about "look at my cool stuff!" It's about 'old' stuff that works and makes you happy. Yesterday I received a McLux III PD in Aluminum. Paid just shy of...

    HDS I think I've finally found the perfect light for me

    Seriously. Sitting here at my desk at work trying to avoid all the negative news, and decided that I needed to share this. We all need some positives in this time when there's so many negative distractions. No commentary on any of said distractions, but most are negative. Meanwhile, after 11...

    Sold/Expired SOLD - Mint Okluma Ti DC1

    I swore I'd never sell this. You all haven't asked for an explanation but I'm inclined to give one. First of all, I will still have 2 Okluma lights and plan to pick up an Aluminum DC0 when they are available. Jeff Sapp has among the best, if not the best, customer service out there. I...

    Enjoying a couple of (not so old but classic) Surefires

    How are y'all doing? I haven't missed a day of work during this COVID craziness. Before anyone jumps on me, we have a small office and we have practiced common sense techniques to keep everyone well. BUT - I have had more time at my desk and have found myself surfing CPF more than normal...
