    SHOT Show 2022

    Did anyone notice the LEP (light emitting phosphor) that Surefire listed in their new catalog? It's the Commander-A, on page 38. The specs are 200k candela, and multiple reflectors that provide both close range and long distance light options. I haven't seen a lot of innovation from...

    Pandemic supply chain in your area

    Sadly, I'm in a state that has the highest per capita covid rate in the entire country right now: Alaska. (In fact, if we were a country, we'd have the worst covid rate in the world.) What worries me isn't a shortage of food or TP; it's medical care. That's what's really scary. And I'm...

    Help me pick a FL for a gift to an art expert

    I'd highly recommend either the Nitecore Tiki or RovyVon A8x, because I think they both fit literally all of your requirements. (Note that the RovyVon A8x model is different than the RovyVon 8 *PRO* model you mentioned above; that one does indeed use the more dangerous UV-C wavelength). Both...

    Alonefire S11 keychain flashlight - thoughts?

    Alonefire has a pretty neat little keychain flashlight called the S11, and I'm intrigued to see if anyone else has bought it yet - and if so, what you think! It's a lot like the Rovyvon Aurora series and the Nitecore Tiki....but it uses an SST20, which gives it a tighter hotspot and more...

    Re: WTS Copper C8,Olights in 90CRI... Free bump for the thread, since I just realized I never returned to share that the Nitecore SRT5 was received safely, promptly, and in good condition, just as advertised. Love that warm emitter. Thanks! - FITP

    What Happened to Zebralight R&D?

    Flashlight technology also hasn't progressed as much in the last two years, so it's no surprise that they haven't upgraded quite as much. Zebralight tends to like stability. When LEDs first came out, we saw pretty steady increases every year. LED technology improved rapidly, and they kept...

    What lights do you consider the most epic or influential on your hobby

    The one that started it all: a AAA Mini-Mag Like many others here, my introduction to flashlights was the mini-mag - and especially that little AAA guy! I've always been drawn to lights that are either impossibly small or incredibly bright. That little AAA mag sucked me in. I spent hours...

    how many flashlights do i need in my bug out bag?

    As others have pointed out, it really depends on what kind of a scenario you’re envisioning and how long you’d plan to be gone. Have you considered making 2 bags? That’s what I did. I keep one main backpack BOB with just the necessities, as well as a second duffle bag with conveniences (and...

    Keychain Light

    Welcome to CPF! Both are good options, by reputable companies, and you won't go wrong with either one. I'm a little partial to Fenix (as a company) for reliability and build quality, but I'm sure others feel the same about Nitecore. Both companies are generally well regarded in the CPF...
