    Default Looking for Titanium Penlights

    Hello guys, I am looking for suggestions for a titanium penlight. For reference I currently have a IPY 365 in titanium, but its problems are poor clip, slippery, and wrong mode order. Bold items are mandatory.

    Format: 2xAAA (NiMH, 1.7V Lithium, Alkaline)

    Material: Grade 5 Titanium

    Emitter: 219B/C preferred, or capable of disassembly for a swap

    Switch: Mechanical highly preferred

    Clip: Needs a strong clip, preferably Ti, but a thick SS clip would work as well

    UI: L-M-H (a moolight is fine, but strobe is NOT accetpable)

    Buying: Custom or Production

    Budget: Under $300

    Possibly, but I'd rather buy one than go through the trouble of designing, tooling, cutting, and putting one together.

    Thrunite Ti4t has the right mode order and is available in a neutral white. It does have a stobe though, accessed by cycling through all modes twice.

    Countycomm sells a pretty nifty Maratac titanium AAAX2 inspection light. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=H29ToTT86xA

    I have one and I dig it! I think it was on sale for about $45 when I bought it a number of months ago.

    Just noticed your mode order reqs though. Sorry, the one I mentioned is M-L-H.

    Thanks guys, neither quite fit the bill and the Maratac is no longer available.

    What about the satin titanium Four Sevens Preon 2? There are used copies available fairly often...

    That would have been an ok option, but they aren't regularly available either.

    The Maratac Inspection light is available in titanium again now, so with an emitter swap and maybe a better clip, that looks to be the best option around.

    That is a pen, not a flashlight.
