    your welcome

    i wonder though, whether any flashlight could be modified with a light shroud or snorkel, if you will, to kill the foot lighting of the light?

    As an experiment I made a snoot out of a section of toilet paper roll to make one of my lights into a pure thrower. However there is absolutely no soft edge like Elzetta spoke of. It slides back n forth to change it to a factory beam or block all spill.

    Just got a standard bezel in the mail from Elzetta so I loaded up my 18mm bravo body with a Malkoff M361N. The high/low tailcap works perfectly with the multimode drop in and the highest mode with tailcap on low is a bit dimmer than the lowest mode with the tailcap on high. Makes for a highly versatile setup and might become my go-to bombproof 18650 light.
    Hello darkness my old friend,
    I've come to talk with you again...
    I liked neutral tints before they were cool.

    Yep my 361’s work great with my elzetta’s hi/lo tail. But not as most know with Malkoff’s hi/lo ring. It’s weird because they both have the same resistor setting🤔

    I’ve got my 361 in a bored out Bravo. On an 18650, the 361 only puts out one low level with a loosened tail cap and the normal three levels when tightened. On two primary 123’s I get the full 6 levels. Must be voltage is not enough from the 18650?
    I only fear that if something happens to me, my wife will sell all my stuff for what I told her I paid for it.

    Today I needed a light to peer into a dark cavity next to a roadway while I was in bright sunshine.

    I slid my wrist strap on the Bones over my wrist and lit up the dark cavity well enough to see it was about 20' deep and headed toward the roadway.
    Yikes.
    That road has a lane closed now until the cavity is filled.

    The Bones was perfect for that.

    nice.
    I hope Elzetta comes out with a new kind of bones in September, or something 18650 to replace it.

    I wonder if they are coming out with another more basic light like the Bones. An Alpha sized Bones for example. Maybe a Delta with dual fuel capability?

    Agreed. A double A would definitely be one I'd purchase.

    is elzetta on par with the likes of MODLITE / CLOUD DEFENSIVE?

    I think they are trying to provide 'premium' line of products for a specific market (just as Surefires), but seems a bit ridiculous. Malkoff's and Elzetta made their names with quality/versatility/durability aspects and I don't see modlite/cloud defensive doing any better...are they all made in USA?

    They also seem to indicate some compatibility with Surefire weapon lights...

    Yeah, that would make sense with the 18mm based bodies. They do have Malkoff based AA lights but not from Elzetta that I know of...

    Not yet, but hopefully a double a version is coming. 300+ lumens would not be improbable from a 2aa.

    Yes I would buy one. It would be one tough AA light.

    It cannot. The elzetta body is shaped to fit exactly the standard m60/1 and not the larger m61t. Plus the bezel opening would be too small unless you turned it out.

    There are zero tough AA tactical lights on the market. If Elzetta released a 1AA Cree XP-L2 150-180 lumen (with lithium or Eneloops) light I'd certainly want one, my only hope would be for a recessed/protected tailcap option.

    I think this would sell like hotcakes.

    Have you visited Malkoff’s website?

    Or perhaps HDS?

    True, Elzetta does not make a Tough AA Tactical Light, but others do.

    You might want to re-read what I wrote.
    BTW yes I have an MDC SHO and a couple of HDS lights.

    [Edit]
    Well I guess you could add a 2AA body to my MDC SHO, or a 2AA body to my HDS EDC LE but most people including me want 1AA size, which is what I meant.
