[h=1]E1DL-A, It was never the greatest at everything, but I liked it's small size and it's ability to scan an area with a somewhat wide beam but still be able to reach out a ways.[/h]

Nitecore SRT3. I loved the ring control and that it incorporated a red light. It was also nice to have the AA option with the extension tube.

Totally agree! I bought both the E2d and E1d, liked the E1d much more than the E2d because of its size and value of only needing 1 battery vs two.Returned the E2d, kept the little stubby E1d.Goes perfect between my Titan and Fury DFT models,and may be the best all-arounder among my 3 lights.

My 4sevens quark xpg r5 aa/2aa/14500 light. Still use it as the moonlight low and medium levels are perfect for my purposes.

Dang... Yes! I remember when that was available and always wanted one... Regret that I never did pick one up though.

Besides that, I still love and use, my SF C2's, Z2's, 6P's and E-series... they are sprinkled about my home. I have JetBeam's, SWM's, NiteCore's, Fenix', Mec Army, and Zebralight's but, my go-to lights that are always available are my SF's. Although their heyday has passed, in a weird way, I still wish they were available.

Many of the lights today seem to take cues from the SF's or the amazing custom builders. Yet, despite being very useful and utilizing the latest LED emitters, they seem to lack a bit of soul. Maybe I'm just being nostalgic for another time.

The Arc LSL. Luxeon Star, Low Dome LED . I've fixed more VFD motors and PLC components under that broad, purple glow. In some often VERY weird and inhospitable places.

ThruNite T10 (one with the bolt on clip). Moonlight, medium, high modes. Mode memory, great clip, durable, tight hotspot for throw yet with plenty of spill. Perfect work light for me.

(If anyone has an unused one lying around, feel free to pm me [emoji6])

Realizing most would figure this to be about LED lights:

Still my all time favorite flashlight.
The long since discontinued Bright Star made 2C generic from the 1980's, probably sold at places like Ace Hardware or a gas station in a one horse town.

Puts out about 15-20 candle power from a Maglite WhiteStar PR base krypton bulb. But it's a sweet little thrower with a nice clean beam.

The PK Knight and Paladin from foursevens are better lights than they got credit for being IMHO. The negative comments kept me from buying for a while but at least I got in on the clearance. I EDC the Knight frequently.

PK does what PK does, critics be d@m'd. Being the first one through the wall can be an ugly experience. And the Paladin/Knight led to a bunch of popular lights later.

HEAR! HEAR!

Zebralight SC32w. Luckily I have 5 of them and hope they'll last my lifetime.
Always liked the idea of the SC32.

There are still 3 cool white SC32s available through Amazon here in Aus, but for crazy money. In a place were the S1 Baton can be had for pretty much half that price it's not worth it.

Pity, though, had it been cheaper I'd have settled for the cool white.
