    2C Mags: not popular?

    I recently bought a bunch of black 2C's via eBay, cheap shipping to Australia as well. Like the posters above, to me it is the best looking shape, easiest to hold, and fun to modify with a (ROP Low) PE 3854L Pelican bulb, running of 3 CR123A's or 2 18500's, held together by a short piece of...

    Lights as a result of your learning curve.

    Great idea for a thread, gcbryan! My learning curve was a pretty flat line during the 80's and 90's, when all I used were 2AA MiniMags. Bulbs blew all the time, batteries leaked through accidental turn on, in short, 20% of the time I had no light at all, and had to resort to the ol' Bic...

    What torch is best for me?

    Hi wo0T, like you I work in many different venues (I'm a soundguy), and after Mini MagLites and 1xCR123A Surefires, for a small light I now really like my Quark AA Tactical from 4Sevens. 4Sevens also sells Fenix, and his own Quark line can be seen as an improvement, or refinement of that brand...

    How many of you still use incans over LED's?

    What I like about LED lights: - a little brain between the battery and the emitter, ie. regulation & the ability to deal with a variety of voltages - efficiency through less heat (relatively speaking) What I like about Incandescents: - the ability to handle more power - colour rendition, and...
