I am new here and I have real problem when it comes to knives, guitars and flashlights. I have way more of all these than I can possibly use. I am constantly acquiring new flashlights and my wife is fed up, lol. I have one in every bag that i have, every car, nightstand, in my pocket, camper, garage, gym. You name it and I have a flashlight there. I have tons of knives too, some that are too nice to carry. I don’t know why I even bought them. Ive been doing some video reviews of my most recent lights and started a youtube channel to do them. Anyone else have this disease?

We can quit any time.

I got a lot of knives too, but use them all on rotation. With flashlights, i stopped at 3, when I decided there was no point in having that many.
I spent some money on a home stereo and, yeah I'm broke.

I couldn't imagine buying 30-50 flashlights, i have too many hobbies.

I prefer flashlights as you can shine them on anything. You go around cutting everything and people get upset! :D

Same here. Even if I could afford that many, I don't think I would. I have about 8 "quality" flashlights, and even that feels like too many for me. Between guns, knives, camping/gear, bicycles, and my motorcycle, I cant afford to splurge on any particular hobby too much. The exception to that might be knives...

Flashlights? Hmmmm. Do I have any flashlights? Let me go check.....
;)
better take a flashlight with you, so you can see.....








I have a few flashlights, maybe 25-30. I work night shifts though, so a light is a handy tool (and in a previous job, a tax deduction, which kinda explains why i have so many)
I do have 2 Maxabeams though, that might qualify for crazy, certainly for flashaholic.

Cincinnati area, but lots of travel
Let me see, the bag I have in my office has 2 lights hanging on the outside and 6 lights inside the bag. I admit 1 got added today, but the other 7 went on my last trip with me.

I don't refer to it as a fetish or disease, more of a "small problem" or "a thing".

Welcome!!

Heh

You guys have no control and you know it.

I on the other hand only have one or two lights and want only 4 more.
