Greyscale, I like the dark gray, but not the usual and tiresome black anodized

I don't have too many Sunwayman torches, but those I do have, I really enjoy.

View attachment 2416
Left to right are, T60CS, T40CS, V20C, RA01

The T60CS is a wall of light from a pretty compact package. The T40CS is the original 788lm version and throws a reasonably tight hotspot a fair way. The V20C is a favourite EDC and really useable light. 423lm from its X-ML and the SMOOTHEST magnetic infinitely variable control ring, with detents at off, max and strobe. The RA01 is a good little keychain AAA light.


V20C is my favorite flashlight: Tail switch, a tactical and soft magnetic ring with short-turn, its able to increased light along all grades, without jumping; with strobe mode at the end; compact size; and also it has a stylish design. If I had to stay with only one flashlight, V20C would be my choice.

Ive got rid of 90% of my flashlights. But currently still have a V20C as my bedside light! I would have liked to have no Off on the ring.. so it wouldnt accidentally put in off, and drain the battery ;)
For the rest.... its my only Sunwayman not pictured in this thread I think.

The small Sunwayman, R01A and R02A; a bunch of colors:

R01A has changed its anodized tone along the time; below, the old stuff, above the most recent:

Only the red R01A has remained impassive

Good grief, are these ALL factory available, or are there some customs here ? If they're factory, wow, what a choice.

:wow:

No, all non-standard, The R01A camo was a limited edition with ultraviolet led; and dark gray R01A was soon replacement by black anodized, as well the clear tan by the "bronze" one.

V10R or V10A?
Good stuff! That`s a collection

I`m more of an AA guy. And it`s a shame Sunwayman doesn`t make any variable lights these days. I have been waiting for an V12A, which never came.
I modded my V11R to a triple, but still prefer an original one.

All are V10R, I only own two V10A :)
I miss a good update of leds, drivers and designs of the classic V20C/M20C, M30/40, V10/11, etc etc.

I think is unlikely that we will see again the artistic designs of the classic Sunwayman.

This thread has been inactiva too long, it needs to be refloated.
My favorite Sunwaymans have always been the ones in this photo, both with a forward pushbutton and short turn continuously variable magnetic ring, a perfect interface in my opinion. In addition, they are beautiful flashlights, with a good design and finish, and with hardly any knurling, which gives them a point of aesthetic sophistication.

Very good Choice!. The driver of the first V20C versions had to be unreliable (one with little use has failed me), so later Sunwayman improved it with a version 1.2, which is the one that is incorporated in the V20C-Y

I never had many Sunwayman lights, and having sold the V10A and my AlTiN V10R Ti am left with my favorite V10R Ti which had the main tube machined down to approximately Haiku appearance, making it one of my most comfortable lights ever. It's also been modded to a neutral emitter and is always in my pocket once again after a couple of years on break.
