I have no pics I'm sure this will be a great thread with with nice eye candy.

I started with the EDC Ultimate 60 and knew I had to have more so very soon after I acquired the 170T and it's the very best EDC light I own, hands down.

I look forward to the future of HDS and wonder how many or what kind of HDS light's I will have over the next couple years.

Hey Nick, nice place you got here!

I'll go ahead and get things started with this picture that I've already used before, but seems to belong here as well.

i had the same worry about waiting two weeks but several other memebers comforted me by telling me they received it in 3-5 days directly from HDS... I ordered my newest one from uniquetitanium however and they sent me shipping confirmation in a few hours.! :party:

Hey guy, post some pictures here, this is not for discussion!!! :poke:

If you order a CUSTOM light, you first have to order directly from HDS, second they have to build the light to your wishes. Unless you're the only customer around, this takes time unfortunately.

If you order a stock one, they have it ready and just have to drop it in a parcel with your name on it, that's the difference. My only stock light was the first one, then I always had some special wishes, I'll explain that when I post the pictures of the Clicky... :cool:

Great job guys! This is going to be a really cool thread I think.

Henk Lu: love the 85 Tr, that is definitely on my short list of HDS lights to add to my collection. They don't come up for sale often though.

Deicide: Is that a high CRI with 17670 body? That's like the outdoorsmans dream light! I like!

Derfyled: A trit in the clip bend? Very creative, nice work!

Keep 'em coming, I'm still waiting on my twisty. I know they're just making sure it's perfect before they send it back. :)

Here come the Clickys! First, a family shot, from left to right they lie here chronological as I bought them :



The specs :

- 140 C with ss bezel (polished up, got ugly from pocket carry) and sapphire
- 170 Cn with black titanium bezel and sapphire
- 100 high CRI with smooth ss bezel and sapphire
- 140 GT with 17670, titanium bezel and sapphire
- Titanium

All have Dad's set screws, the flush button and executive UI (except the Titanium, which is tactical). They have been programmed all the same way fitting my needs...

Here are 3 types of emitters, from left to right the P4/140, GDP/170 and P4/100 high CRI (rated still 120 when I bought it) :



The 170Cn, which I'm still sure the emitter is uncentered :



The 100 high CRI :



Now I'm waiting for the 17500 body to get reality, the 2xAA and hope to see some new emitters come around, to justify a purchase... :devil:
