Would be more expensive to LEGO a light with the EB1 head, with another body, so my suggestion is the EB1, since it carries better IMHO. I have the 200 lumen EB1 and do not like the smooth surface, but it can be handled just fine. Or I remove the EB1 head and put it on the E1L body, for a single mode light, since I have the tactical version of the EB1.

I lego'd up an e1d head and tailcap on my old e1e body but I love the crenulations, knurling and tail stand ability it has as well as the 300 lumens it offers. I have also read a couple places that the e1d keeps its output longer/better than the eb1. But I can only speak for the e1d and e1b head and I definitley prefer my e1d. Sold off the smooth body and tailcap from the older e1b I had and now only have the head on a second e1e body lol, I didn't care for the smooth texture either. Good luck with the decision. I'm sure you'll be happy with a new Surefire either way.
