    I've been drooling over that too since the included TurboHead lets you go with either a pocket-size flood or a long range thrower.

    However, it sounds a little TOO good to be true for that price, so i would dig up some more reviews about it first. It helps to be suspicious once in a while just in case that dream light futzes out on you.

    Your flashaholic days are far from being over. Wives and lights go together like bacon and eggs. My wife much prefers I sit at the table soldering, cursing, soldering, then going "damn this light is mean".

    She much prefers that to me out drinking with buddies.

    Don't forget......you'll get voted out of the Flashaholic Union if you don't have a light in your pocket during the ceremony.
    Blew another IC!

    Your right...it is a great price...but all their prices in my opinion seem to be toward the low end and I love everyone I have held. I hope its what Im expecting.

    Gotta agree on this. I asked my fiancee what she thought about my hobby.
    She said, better this than you going out flirting with other girls. (wide eyed innocence)

    Maybe a modder can program you up a light that automatically stops going into the "special modes" the day after you're married.

    Ha ha, just kidding! congrats!

    Not to mention spending $20,000 on Spinners, (Wheels) or time at he poker table. The drinking part you better fix, all men are entitled to put back a couple now and then.

    You will figure it out, and congratulations, by the way!

    Another option for you is the VX Ultra and the Tele-force head to be out soon. Lumapower says it is larger in diameter than the MRV or Signature head for even more throw. Plus the VX makes 17% more Lumens than the Signature.
