    I went around looking for “Titanium HDS” and came upon an interest thread from 2015 where Hogo had put out feelers for a Ti Rotary that would cost $1000...the answers were pretty much “Hell No!”. How things change!
    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.

    I remember that, pretty sure I didn't comment as I wasn't a HDS owner at the time, but I wasn't interested then and still aren't even if there was a Ti clicky. I think a titanium HDS light is only for collecting and I'm not a collector. While it might not be a popular opinion I also think that HDS Systems should stick with HA aluminum and rather than what I call 'lesser' suitable metals.
    It does look pretty though. It wouldn't look out of place clipped to a Jedi's belt next to a lightsaber especially with the older style clip... OK maybe I need one.
    - I don't make fanboy recommendations, if I recommend a light it's because it's the most practical option for your intended application.
    - Whatever light you carry, no keychain should be without a Photon Micro-Light II.

    The stated lack of interest was something I kept trying to convince Henry was not an accurate picture of how much interest there actually would be if the lights were made. So glad it finally happened and that Dan was able to get him to make a lot more than the handful he'd planned on doing.

    I guess that everything that there is to be said about HDS lights has been or is going to be said in the main thread.
    Once we've got over saying how shiny these are and how smooth the threads are there won't be much left.
    But I'm watching with hope and interest.

It's not just Archimedes, when a post gets reported as yours did we all get an email. So now I (and everyone else) gets to decide to jump in or not. It's Archimede's thread. Do I ignore it and let him be the "bad guy"? After all, it's the HDS subforum and we're all friends, right? What's a little rule bending? We have an area for WTS. You need a supporter badge to sell there. If one exception is made, everyone says "but how come so-and-so gets away with it???" You've been here a long time, maybe you should clean it up yourself.

    Interest threads are always a little tricky... it can be like asking a kindergarten class who would like squash for lunch when you are not going to serve everyone squash, just those who want it. There is a choice. Everybody who doesn't want squash feels they need to weigh in when the reality is, all you want to know is who does want squash.

    In many ways, it is like me weighing in on the pocket clip thing. To me, pocket clips are like braziers... I've taken several off in my lifetime, never used one, and while I know they are very important to a segment of the population, I just don't have the experience using them to give any valuable input (other than ease of taking it off).

    Thanks Scout, and your post above is quoted for truth.

    Without wanting to pick on this one particular situation, especially since I know INFRNL well and he has done a lot for CPF, but there have been several situations recently that have me wanting to make a larger point here.

    CPF is a place that the "regulars" here enjoy, it is a fun and friendly community, unique and quirky ... and so unlike the anonymous faceless blob of "big social media" now vacuuming up everything online into its infinite maw.

    The staff here devote an enormous amount of time, 99% of which is behind the scenes, to try to keep this place the way we all like it. Clean, nice, and pleasant. Free of spam, shilling, advertorial commercials in the wrong place, coarse talk and crude language, and ad hominem personal attacks.

    We all enjoy spirited discussion, but few like to see pointed angry mean-sprited arguments. It doesn't take much boundary-pushing to slowly but steadily change the tone of a thread, and eventually an entire forum. If you find yourself thinking "hmmm, should I do this" then you might already know

    Please also know that the majority of mod action is taken in response to other members' reports ... not staff initiative. That means it is not mods being critical of you, but your own community.

    More and more these days, it seems that any mod comment, an edit, a link removal, a thread move or merge is followed by a flurry of PMs and hurt feelings.

    I get it that the regulars care about these things, but so do the staff. Many, even most, situations are an impossible challenge to make everyone happy. We do all this work, as volunteers, simply to try to keep this a place we all want to be.

    I would like to ask you all to also help keep CPF the kind of community you enjoy, too.

    Thank you for letting me vent a little here ... among friends

    Ok, now, where are those Ti Ra Clickies and Ti HDS Rotaries ?

    Should be shipping titanium Tuesday and Wednesday. My jury duty got delayed until Tuesday, so I told them I had other plans and wouldn't be showing up, so they rescheduled me to the 16th. Doubt all will be shipped those two days. First ordered, first shipped.

    And you can be sure I will do some new comparsion pictures very soon.


    At all I like the HDS lights and how they work. I also like well build quality stuff. Unfortunately I found out how cool this lights are when the Novatac lighs begin to leave the market (~8-10 years ago don't remember anymore, I am getting old...).
