Haha I see, as usual Henry's idea of "flawed" is of another premise.
On another note, I'm trying to find a new primary light for EDC. I'm currently debating between the BOSS 35 and the Rotary. The way I see it, the Rotary simply has the best interface out there; all the programming in the world doesn't matter much when you have a variable brightness control. The main reason why I would go with the BOSS is because it's simply a boss! The output is insane on it even on one cell and a lot of people seem really happy with theirs in the BOSS 35 thread. I'm leaning toward the BOSS, but the HDS seems much more practical not to mention cheaper. What's your guys' opinion on the two?
I actually talked to Henry on the phone the other day about the orange blems. He said when the cerakote was applied it wasn't applied evenly. He said to notice this you'd probably have to take the light out into sunlight and roll it around and you might see different shades of color but said it really wasn't noticeable. I've heard cerakote chips so I was concerned these were chipped but that's not the case. In the end I went with a standard black and silver bezel. Henry did say he won't be applying cerakote to any more lights, so if you want it here is your chance.
As for the BOSS va the Rotary, Hmm, that's a tough one. I have a BOSS and my second Rotary is scheduled to be delivered tomorrow. I am glad I don't have to choose but if I did have to my BOSS would probably win. It's so light weight, very EDC able with the clip, size, form factor. It can go from insanely bright to very low and has a secondary LED color if that interests you. Plus having the 371D driver
It is a hoot to program the modes via your cell phone or computer screen. Ok on top of that the 7075 Aluminum Patina lights are very cool looking.
In saying all that I'm glad I don't have to choose. I'm glad my new Hi Cri Rotary is scheduled for delivery tomorrow. It is a light that has withstood the test of time. It's interface is second to none, it has tremendous versatility, it looks cool, man it's a HDS, what other light is on thread #19!?
I have seen the question posed time and time again that if you had to rely on one light and one light only to be there for you which one would it be. The answer I usually see is HDS, tough choice.
