    You dont find strobe in the main mode very annoying?

    Sure do! Also the mode changes slow n mode memory is slow too. Vn2 is the way 2 go. Plus it's brighter.

    Playing with this light in bed right now and it's absolutely amazing. I'm a huge clicky fan and I'm really impressed this thing is crazy short for a clicky. The only thing I don't like is the busy design an excessive printed.

    I found out how much of a clicky fan I am after this light. Something about the mechanical feel!!!! Love it!
    RRT01vn is a wonderful EDC in this size and I cant fault the rotary ring but the performance of this light + the mechanical switch Just ticks all the box for me.

    I actually like the looks of this light. It's not the smallest 18350 clicky of course but it reminds me of very early Nitecore designs.

    The Ti version looks really neat except for that silly pocket clip with copper wrap and studs. Just my opinion though and that could certainly be switched out for a normal one. My only other reservation to the Ti version is the price of $310 msrp! Yikes!

    Vinh’s TK17vn with W2 and VN2 is an amazing light that managed to kick his own Lumintop 14500 out of my pocket as my main outside carry. While they are both great lights, the TK17vn handles heat buildup on higher modes better than the Lumintop, and while it doesn’t have a lot of spill, its hotspot is large enough too be very useful up close. I previously had a stock version of the TK17, and did not like having to cycle through strobe in the main modes, but with Vinh’s VN2, this is by far my favorite non-tactical edc. Now, if only there were a way to silence the Clicky.

    It is an electronic clicky, right? I wonder if an h17f driver could be installed?

    And I am surprised that a clicky interface has surpassed the rrt01 rotary in your books, vinh!

    I a HUGE clicky fan! Soemthing abotu its mechanical operation that gets it for me. Variable control ring is mechanical also and I love it! Problem is RRT01vn is a great EDC but not a WOW light.
