    Unfortunately Lane has parked and is flooding Big Island - Hawaii. Mean time a couple brush fires in Lahaina have forced many to evacuate early this AM and no rain to douse the fires and helicopters can't fly due to excessive winds i gather. It looks like we, on Maui, will be visited by Lane later and hopefully for a short and uneventful visit!!

    Don,

    Thank you for the advice. I love the Mahi head on the 2x123 body. Perfect all-around light.

    I am very interested in getting a Ti pocket thrower and since I don't own a McGizmo yet this Mahi head looks very tempting to me. I read every post but could not find any dimensions, could someone please post the dimensions including head diameter with a 123 body. TIA

    The diameter of the head is 1 3/8" (1.375") and the length is 3 7/8" on a 1x123 pak

    Mahi head with the 2x123 Pak is the best combo in my opinion. Especially how body & head mate.

    Can anyone tell me how big the Mahi head is, in outside diameter? I am thinking about getting it, but not sure whether it would be comfortable to carry as an EDC. I can't tell from the pictures how large it actually is.

    Thanks in advance.

    Don answered a bit further up.
    The diameter of the head is 1 3/8" (1.375") and the length is 3 7/8" on a 1x123 pak

    Apart from beauty is in the eye of the beholder is there any practical advantage to the head/body mating?

    Running a 16650 for extended run times, 2x123’s if you have a 6v LE. Also, very aesthetically pleasing to the eye.

    It is also one of the most pleasingly tactile bodies, which I think is under-rated until you experience it. Like you, mine houses a 16650, albeit with a Makai head.

    I agree wholeheartedly agree about the feel of the 2x123 body, Don really knocked that one out of the park. I have a Sundrop head on mine.

    No compare for me i dont have the body but the runtimes of a 16650 is a nice bonus.
    I have zero complaints with the body i chose, fits my hands like a glove.
    Does not matter what 14500 i choose when it only outputs 1amp by default.
    Already had a stack of 14500 not doing much, primaries have their place but i will be dead well before i wear out the batteries.

    The AA body is definitely on my wish list.
