I'm on team raised. As of this posting, team raised has 100% of the vote. [emoji38]

I simply appreciate the almost imperceptible savings in time finding the button.

Flush......candle mode flush

Easy to sit anywhere without needing a cup or something to sit it in.

Team Flush as i tailstand my lights quite often. No assistance needed with flush.

I've had a raised button in the past and there was not always postitive action/engagement with raised.

I did order a spare raised boot to play with on one of my clickys though, just for an option.

I haven't any issues with flush, finding the button, etc

That’s a tough one. I mainly used flush for edc but for work/ccw stuff I use a raised. Another reason why I love the clicky. I can swap them out.

This one's much harder than the other for me. In a black-n-white world, which is what this poll represents, I have to choose flush. Because tailstanding. But I do really like raised and keep raised lights around too. Can I vote twice? :D

I prefer the ability to tail stand, but my 18650 tube is raised which is fine for the intended use.

I carry a Rotary Tactical on my duty belt, for sure raised button on that light. For my EDC I prefer flush.

Team Flush! The raised button responds poorly to lateral pressure. I have other ways to assist the raised button with tail standing but life is better when the light balances on its own.

Flush!! More for reduction in accidental pocket activation then anything, but tail standing is so nice when you need/want it.

Where I live, with the thick gloves I have to wear much of the winter, a flush button is almost impossible to activate. With cowhide work gloves I wear much of the time at work, the flush button also becomes a pain. Tail-standing is handy at times, but generally I prefer raised. I’m thinking to get a clip on Hogo holster without the battery holder...makes a good way to tail stand a raised.

Raised, I find it more comfortable to use than the flush. I don't generally tail stand my lights but if I needed to I also carry an Okluma DC1.

Team Flush - Ability to tail stand adds to the usefulness of the light = Justifies the expense more.:D

Raised, please.

In the event of a scenario requiring immediate tail-standing functionality (and presuming some unlikely sequence of events have rendered the dozen or so other nearby lights, with this built-in feature, inoperable) ... just click HDS on, and swap the diffuser from the bezel to the switch.
