    Headed to Jamaica in November for my honeymoon. The great question comes up "what should I carry?". I have multiple battery options with some variety in the types of lights with each battery (headlamps, throwers, floody edc types). I have no anticipated use but like to have my bases covered...

    The Streamlight Propoly 4AA finally got an upgrade, its now putting out 100 lumens.

    I just noticed this on a retailer's site and checked the Streamlight website. I also did a search and couldn't find anything on it here. This light was a big deal seven or eight years ago. It was a heck of a thrower and used its forty lumens fairly efficiently. I imagine at 100 lumens it will...

    Nitecore D10 R2 problem

    I have an Nitecore D10 R2 that I've had for over 2 years. It started acting a little crazy last year around this time and soon would only come on and put about about 1/3 of its normal output and I couldn't get it to ramp up or down. I had put it in a drawer without a battery and forgotten about...

    Anybody notice the east coast quake?

    I just sat down at my desk just before 2 o clock and felt my chair start wobbling. Thought it was me, as I've never felt one before. I know its a small one and as far south as I am it wasn't much but it was an interesting feeling nontheless. First an earthquake and then hurricane Irene. Its...

    Spyderco Manix 2 Sprint runs.

    What's everyone's favorite? I've been looking at the M4 Sprint and really wishing that I had paid attention to the CTS-XHP sprint a year ago. At that time though I had just bought my first Manix 2 and wasn't really liking it that much. It was a bit too heavy and hard to sharpen to the edge that...

    Opinions on Spyderco Stretch Vs. Endura FFG

    I'm wanting to get a longer blade than my Delica's and I've been looking hard at the Stretch. Just wondering if anyone here had one and how they felt about it compared to an Endura. I'm just not sure it's worth the extra 20 dollars, performance wise that is. I just bought a Para 2 and...

    Black Diamond Storm headlamp. A waterproof black Diamond?

    I was perusing REI's site and looked at their headlamp section for a minute. This one popped up and suprised me. The Storm is supposed to be waterproof down to 1m for 30 minutes, which is similar to the EOS IIRC. My first thought was that it was just a waterproofed Spot because they look...

    Advice on AA rechargables for PT Apex.

    I run my PT apex on alkaline most of the time and I would like to get some more runtime out of it but have had problems in the past with rechargables and cold weather. Lithiums are out because of both cost and availabilty around where I live. I've had Duracell 2650 mah NIMH in the past that...

    Does anyone have a 2010 Black Diamond Cosmo?

    I've been looking at the new Cosmo as an around the house light. I like the new Spot and was wondering if anyone had the Cosmo and could describe the main beam shape to me? It looks like otherwise the secondary and red leds are the same as the Spot.

    Beam question: Princeton Tec Apex 130 lumen versus Myo RXP and BD Icon.

    I really like the Princeton Tec Apex models but I'm curious to know how much the main beam of the Apex 130 lumen differs from the Petzl Myo RXP both on high and boost and the Black Diamond Icon cree model. I think I'd like a bit more throw than my either of my 130 lumen Apex models can...

    Does anyone prefer the Delica III over the IV?

    I have only been buying Spyderco's for about 8 years and I use them often for both work and hunting. My first was an Endura III and the second was a Delica III. I used these both for several years as my EDC's rotated with a mini-griptillian. Then I saw the new Delica IV and had to try one...

    A quick commentary on the 130 lumen PT Apex.

    I just recieved my new Apex from Lighthound today. I have not had a chance to take it outdoors yet but just using it indoors for a few minutes has impressed me very much. I own the older 65 lumen model Apex which is still my favorite but I think it has just been surpassed. For a long time I...

    Surefire KL4A output compared to U2A and KL5A?

    To those that have both. How does the KL4A compare to the U2A and KL5A on high? I just recieved a new L4 with the KL4A bezel and it is quite a bit brighter than my Lux V U2. It also has more throw. So I was wondering how it stacks up against its big brothers with the same LED. Thanks in...
