    Thanks, These are prototypes but the leather one has a long enough cord to do exactly that and what you mentioned is actually what I had in mind. I built it for free use while tethered or anchored to a belt (belt loop is easier and quicker) As well as an extra layer of security when using a open top holster (I prefer open top, Head covered but tail free) easy and quick access) and yes thatís pull the dot.

    As much as I d love to have a stingray low profile holster made i m out in the sticks in Europe so itís not doable at the moment. I think black stingray with low profile and belt loop, open top would look beautiful with that titanium or any of the special metals, copper as well.

    I havenít used my Titanium rotary till I did these and thatís where it lives now and the TR (titanium rotary) isnít going anywhere including no roll away disasters.
    I took the TR out last night to test again for beam reach but it was too misty.

    I m curious though as to the specs on the other special metal runs compared to the normal aluminum lights because of the tail diameter mentioned above.


    It serves well already as a three finger grip method while allowing better control and grip of the light.

Best thing is I can use it for various activities.

    These are both prototypes and work very well... The titanium area below the tailcap however is .857Ē vs
    .847Ē on the aluminum tails I have so itís a hair tighter on the titanium.

    Some have voiced their concerns about the snap scratching the finish on the body but Iíve not had an issue.

    Either way itís a hell of a lot better than dropping a light worth $350 on concrete or in the water where you canít get it.... much less $650 or over a grand.
    thanks. I was going to say something about lining the one with the snap but I'm late to the party.

    My light looks fine, just needs a little rinse in fresh water. Definitely better to drop on softer ground than solid ground

    and just like that... there was an "HDS and your ride thread"
    I just saw it and posted a few pics of some vehicles
