    Way back when, when most of this project was still up in the air, I thought it was one or the other so I had my mind made up on a twisty. Not sure why, but it does seem to make a lot of sense on a light like this.

    I think that Quad W1.1 will be much better suited for SLN #011 for a daily-pocket-rider. Then again, I haven't gotten to use her in a twisty setup.....


    Despite a plethora of options, I am still reaching for SLN #011 every single day as my main-carry. Goes right in my pocket and still carries wicked easily. Only when I crouch way down on my knees and lean over do I ever get annoyed by a mass in my pocket- though I am positive that any larger pocket light (P60~~ sized) would do the same. So yeah, keeping her there for now. I think I need a FWD clicky for it though.....

    dotCPF- I have a forward clicky from Vinh in #042 and highly recommend it. For me, it's about familiarity as much as anything else, the vast majority of my other lights are similarly equipped so no suprises when I pick things up...

    I think FWD clicky is overall my favorite. I should have had him send a switch with my latest dropin.... next time!

    Most of the lights I grab often are FWD clicky. I love the momentary option more than anything I think. With Lil Vortex in there right now reverse switch is required, so I can deal.

    Came here to say- my SLN is starting to get all nice and marked up! Albeit, very lightly, no actual scratches yet just velvety marks on the anodizing. I'll admit it- even in my skinny jeans it fits just fine in my pocket- and I've got other stuff in with it too! Honestly barely notice it. I'm kinda surprised by how easily it carries.

    I have a bare nekkid and a blk anodize. The nekkid is getting a nice "pocket wash" (credit to Scout24? for that term) with all kinds of little hairline scratches and scuffs. The anodized still looks perfect, very "pocket wash" resistant.

    WOW Good idea to split them up, and now the single P60vns are exceptional value!

    One of those SBT-90s is in my SLN #011's future for sure. Does the SBT-90 dropin require a reverse switch, or will it work with a FWD Clicky?

    I sleep on mine all the time! Even though it can pump out thousands of lumens, SN006 also makes a good night light. But, it will make an even better night light with a huge pile of trits crammed into a twisty tailcap!

    I bet the twisty loaded with green trits will be too bright for a night stand light

    Couldn't agree more. I was saving up for a twisty decked out in tritium, but instead decided I needed another SLN. I'm going to gift my wife SLN 013 as a surprise, and keep 048 as my own. By far my favorite flashlight, bar none!

    I anxious as hell to have the twisty tail cap in so I can use it. Today I was comparing the Olight Warrior X Pro, G25C2 and SLN and realized SLN is quite shorter than the other 2 and have a much smaller head. I guess SLN large body makes it looks bigger than it really is. The large body was intentional because P60 light heat sink to the body first not like the head in most other lights. I need to take some pics...

    I carried my G25C2vn yesterday and I honestly think that the SLN is way nicer in the pocket. Easily forgotten, especially considering how large it is- or perhaps seems. The smoothness of the body and head make it much easier to pull out (especially sitting down) and re-pocket.

    I have to say that the SLN is a joy for me to carry. I think the weight of the light may be what contributes to the perception that it is a bigger light than it really is. For me, it's a very small percentage of what I carry in my pockets and on my belt every day, so that really doesn't change my own perception. It is a little hefty for between the teeth use, I was loading groceries in a dark parking lot a while ago, and my jaw got a little tired holding the SLN that way. Guess it's time to add jaw exercises to the workout routine lol

    Quad White2 5400K High output with improved throw and HS over 50.2
    3500L, 40Kcd, 400m

    Triple W2.1 54000K
    27600L, 45Kcd, 425m Tested with Samsung 50E, Will see if it can handle 40T later.

    Regardless of the #s above Triple W2.1 is my most favorite P60vn so far. LilV Don't count as that one is Mule.
    The beam is so filled and focused I love it!

    Now I will see if I can do similar optics mod to tune a better beam and more performance for the Quad W2.

    Size Comparison


    The Warrior X Pro has got to be the best looking tactical light ever made to my eyes. Have to have a Tan & Green for myself!
    IMO this is the kind of tactical light every one wished they made!

    SLN stubby-ness makes it appear way larger than it really is. I do find the SLN easier to pocket carry than all three other lights here. M2R Pro would have been easy to pocket carry if the bezel weren't so freaking sharp. I even cut myself with it!

    One negative though. Olight aluminium choice must be an alloy with butter in it. The thing is so soft I nicked it just by accidentally taping the lights against each other for the photo-shoot. (Last Photo)

    Oh man! That's too bad about the nick but yeah, it sounds kind of soft if that was from just bumping a couple of the lights together. I guess it kind of all depends on what edge it hit and with how much force.

    Wasn't too much force one of the bezel hit. But its soft regardless. This alloy must be great for treat transfer I suppose. Butter is hahahha

    By the way I got 45 Twisty tail cap ordered. They will all be Black with thread anodized for it to operate correctly. They will work on any SLN finishes even the Raw. There are 60 SLN made so 15 will never see a twisty tail cap. Just an FYI.

    Ha! That nick is what happens when a bulletproof light gets near anything else! Other flashlights be warned, keep your distance!

    I definitely need at least one, without the "weak" point that is the rubber boot this thing will be even more of a tank! Still, in your tests that boot proved a lot tougher than I would have thought.
