    Already asked Henry about it. Got the usual response! LOL! Have quite a list of things already on Henry's plate, and either he or I will probably die before it gets done.

    Better get that rum handy though. I do love my little twisty, its still a great light today and I could see that style making a return. But programming that thing? Wow, um, no thanks.

    ...not that there's a very easy to way to program any twisty. Its just a very difficult UI style for complicated input.

    I wonder if acme threads could be used if a new twisty was made? That I think was the weakest link/part of the twisty.i actually wore mine out.

    There were quite a few discussions on CPF about the U-wire switch mechanism in the past.

    Apart from the On/Off switch you can make the HDS Tactical Rotary behave in a similar way to the RA Twisty. Mine is set for HML, pressing and holding from on reduces the output which is great when doing close up stuff.

    If I can remember, I'll ask Henry the specifics on Tuesday. I'm quite sure it has to do with the driver and emitter.
    In production, things get put together in batches, so it is good to know exactly what emitter is on a driver before it is potted into a light.
