Ugh!! Trying to be financially responsible by only buying one, but that beam on the TN42vn is so crisp though!! You might be right to just put it up for sale later, OR, it could make one SWEET gift for someone, as I advance to Saab's light!! The thing that I really love with throwers is how the heat is kept to a minimum, the step down is virtually non-existent compared to a flooder. I actually started out preferring flood, but then I became a bigger fan of throw.
