1st post - I guess I'm not the geek my wife accused me of tonight...well yes I am, but I'm not alone.
Stumbled into CPF a week ago looking to upgrade my Craftsman (Luxeon K2 6AAA). Didn't know a thing about flashlights, or that there was a forum, or that people upgraded, modded, built, collected, discussed...!
I'm a carpenter, just something to fit into the belt, and bounce around the toolbox... few late nights later of long reading, have a few cheapo DX cree's and a MTE SSE p7 LED on the way.
Then 2 nights ago strayed from LED into spots and HID's. :Last night - trip to Advance Auto and now have a PF 20+MCP charging in the garage. What a monster!
I actually like the USB and LED's on the Professional's Favorite 20+MCP, but due to the size, it's not practical, seems like it's probably more for show...
BlueBeam22 - you have both - the Stanley HID as well? Do you have a side-by-side pics comparing size and beamshots (Stanley vs PF)?
I should just drive over to Wally world and see the Stanley, just seems like something I would more likely keep in the van.
P.S. Not even ever having done a "flashlight mod", am I sick/ill that I'm awaiting HID upgrade results on the PF 20+MCP? (not knowing what HID was a week ago...) AAAHH, thanks for nuthin'...
