Same distance and same button... though there have been different lengths of the nipple on the underside of the button over the years.

Wasn't there a white plastic disc under the button that initially wasn't there on the rotaries? I remember having that discussion but not the outcome.

The button on my rotaries are definitely more squishy/mushy feeling compared to my clickies. Clickies have a more satisfying tactile/mechanical response.

Question,

I went ahead and pulled the trigger on an HDS, it's got a sapphire lens. I have been carrying it and absolutely love it.

My question is,

Am I good to throw it in my pants pocket with keys? I don't mind if the body gets some marks, I intend on carrying this for years to come, so naturally it will gain some character I'm sure, however I don't want the lens getting scratched as it may take away from the performance of the light.

Hence why I opted for the sapphire lens option.

So because it's got a sapphire lens, I should be safe to throw it in my pants pocket with keys and whatever else, correct?

Thanks guys.

Looks like I'm joining the HDS club--bought a basic Rotary from another CPFer. An original LuxV Surefire U2 has been my EDC for a billion years, and I used to have a UB3T, UM2, and a T1A I never really warmed up to. Always thought "something like this in one CR123 would be perfect" and here we are. Big fan of selector ring lights.

Hi all, unrelated to the current discussion, but I went on a Nichia spree and now have the NB30, NB35, and NB40. I liked the idea of a warmer one and a cooler one. I am happy with the NB30 and NB40 (I got the NB30 after I decided I wanted to go warmer than the NB35).

The question is (and this never ends!)-should I get an NB27 as my warm HDS instead of the NB30?

Thoughts from people who have one and/or who like warm lights?
