    I think that when you and I see the same heated discussion come around like it was something new, we've been on here too long.

    It'll be flush or raised soon.

    This was a clip in one of my parts boxes. no idea where it came from, but has been working great. the split style sit's atop the rotary screw if you want, or will sit below it....

    I was thinking of getting my first HDS light. A HDS EDC LE Clicky with 18650 "tube", and either the SDR50 or NLT.

    Prefer the Clicky's increased durability and reliability and the ability to switch tailcaps on my own. Would probably use mostly high and maximum so rotary won't see too much ise from me. I have the Surefire G2X Pro and like the 320 lumens brightness level.

    Pocket Clips? We don't need no stinkin' pocket clips! Loosely based upon the classic Humphrey Bogart film, "Treasure of the Sierra Madre," which everyone should see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4OcM23Hbs5U

    My wife gave me a HDS rotary flashlight for my birthday. She said, "do you know that is a $350 flashlight?" I said "really?"

    Then she said, "can you fix my (Chinese) flashlight? The wire came loose and it needs to be soldered."

    After that you could hardly say, "I wouldn't sully my soldering iron on such crap" could you?

    While the Clicky is very good I would still recommend the Rotary over it. The Rotary is simply a marvel you cannot get anywhere else and the price is very close to the Clicky.

    The Rotary can be opened, if you are patient and careful. Check out one of the older HDS Systems #xxx threads for some disassembly info by ShineOnYouCrazyDiamond.

    Thanks for the info.
    I went ahead and ordered the clicky 18650 with SDR50. I saw the thread on opening the rotary and it kinda scares me if I were to do it myself.

    Now I am hoping to get the light soon. Can't wait for it!

    Who knows in the future I might get another one and it might be the rotary.
