    I have some spare cash, and I am looking to purchase some beautiful, expensive, custom flashlights, so any suggestion are helpful

    Have been looking at the cool fall threads - my price range $ 500.00 to $ 2,000.00

    Thanks
    Hi Matrix100,

    I agree with fl0t as those are all great lights. I have a few of them and am very happy with them.

    I'd go slow and look at the lights in the custom makers forum to see what they offer. Some of those are quite high end. Jeff Hanko and other collectible lights no longer in production can go for in excess of $1000. They come up for sale here occasionally. And Vinh just offered a limited edition T45C Ti for $1500 that unfortunately is sold out as there were only about a dozen or so made. I bought two but recently sold one to jmayot here since I couldn't sit on two if a CPF bro had none. He might be persuaded to part with his. It's an amazing light, I can try to find the original sales thread, and put you in touch with him if you're interested.

    Then there's the so-called "exotics" such as the powerful HID (high intensity discharge) lights such as the Polarion Night Reaper, PH40, and PH50, which run $2000-$3000. These aren't customs but are high end production lights often built to tough military specs. They are truly beasts with upwards of 4000 lumens output from a single bulb, so they aren't typical LED type lights. I picked up a PH40, the least expensive of the three, used but in good condition recently on eBay for about $1000, but new it's about $2000. Also PhotonFanatic is doing a custom CR2 light for me for $600 in mokume gane. He has photos if you're interested. Tell him I sent you. I suspect he could another variation as he doesn't make dupes of his custom lights. Hope this helps.

    Wow what a beauty! What emitter?

    Edit: just looked them up. Very impressive specs and a sharp design. Guess that's a +1 for the "to buy" list😄

    Thanks! It has become one of my favorites. Puts out good 800 lumens on the 15270 imr. Heats up quick, but much fun to show off with for a short time : )

    And low & med mode too, so don't have to burn full time..

    Congrats! Coincidentally I just bought one myself. Those little things are built like a tank.

    No pictures unfortunately, but I just scored a Surefire Titan and Exolion from a CPF bro. I'm really excited to get these as they were two of the final big gaps in my collection. I still don't have the Liteflux but with the new Extreme Micro-Lux mule I just ordered from RMSK this brings my total to 33 different CR2 lights.

    Since this thread hasn't seen any action in 6 months I thought I'd post this. This is a photo of my CR2 lights from Photon Fanatic: four Task Light II's and a custom mokume gane he recently finished. Check out the nice grain pattern on that mokume!

    Thanks! It's also my first mokume light. But I don't think it'll be my last!

    Wow, awesome display there of CR2's. I should do something like that with mine.

    What's the light to the right of the shorter silver colored one in the middle? It looks like it has very unusual knurling.

    I finally got an updated group photo of most of the new additions in the last 8 months or so. There are half a dozen or so missing from this photo that I'll post soon.

    Yes, I was lucky to find those. The second one I was contacted about after I bought the first one, so couldn't resist.

    They're both titanium. Would love to get a stainless too. I'll make a note of that in the description.

    I recently added two more Task Light II models from Photon Fanatic to the two I already had, so here's a group photo. Fred said he only had a few left so I couldn't resist buying the last two. :-)

    Just bought one of these to add to my collection of CR2 lights.

    I just bought a bunch of CR2's from Olaf Schulz in Germany and will post a group photo when I get them.

    Very cool score Magellan! I need to find one myself : )

    Btw, there is a new Aeon Mk. III (cr2) coming soon from Muyshondt, be sure to add to list. Prototypes look cool..

    Thanks! I had only heard a German firm had bought parts and the rights or some such but didn't know any lights had actually been produced, so I'm very happy to get this.

    Also thanks for the heads-up on the Aeons as I didn't know those were in the works. I'll keep an eye out for them. Are there photos posted somewhere?

    Thanks! I looked but couldn't find anything. I've followed the earlier thread about the new Mako style light (but at only 30 lumens max I wasn't interested). But this one I'm definitely interested in.

    I think CR2 lights are not up to your budget. These are more rare rather than expensive.
    If you want expensive CR2 lights I would look into the Titanium McGizmos with CR2 tubes, Photonfanatic CR2 Titanium (If there is one), Titanium Muyshondt Aeon, Katokichi Ichishiki CR2, and if you can find it: a Ti version of the CR2 Lummi RAW.
    In any of those lights you are looking to spend $500-$700 tops.
