Looking for advice on a mid grade thrower



I am new to this site, and never new there were so many choices for led flashlights. I have read alot of the reviews here, and posts on various lights. I am looking for a LED flashlight that is around 5 to 5 1/2 inches long, and takes 2 x Cr123 or 1 x18650 batteries. I would like to have it be a good thrower if possible. I am looking to spend between 60 - 100 dollars. Can any of you seasoned CPFers recommend a few that suit my needs. Thanks in advance for your help.

PS - I had bought a Fenix PD30 R2 as my first light, but returned it because my father's little Led Lenser 3 x AAA put it to shame. So I am back to the drawing board.
