I looked through this thread along with the Front Porch and didn't see anything related to a potential Tri-cap for the MD21700. Mine just arrived yesterday and I love it but has anyone heard anything about Gene creating a tri-cap for the MD21700 body to prevent rolling? Just waiting on some 21700 cells to arrive. I'm not so much worried about a clip since this fat boy won't get EDC'ed.

Anyone that has a 21700 body from malkoff ever notice how many and how fine the threads are on the tail cap? I think his plan is to make another section that screws onto this to make it a 2X21700. Just something I was thinking about.

I took the fenix pd36R clip people have previously recommended and modified it to work as a roll guard. Super simple. Cut off the clip, bent the remaining with pliers, smoothed the rough edges with some 80 grit sandpaper (will remove black anodizing). I got "fancy" and ended with some 220 grit to polish. I feel like it's the slimmest option, all the rubber roll guard sleeves add too much width. Also the clip is super cheap ($2) so I bought a couple for trial and error. "Fenix two way body clip". Haven't heard about a tricap coming out.
