    I like mine for closeup work.

    Well, Bill only posted it this morning and some of us have only just gotten up.

    I generally like Fenix lights. The HL50 is quite old, so might be found fairly cheap. That takes a standard AA.

    There are quite a few options, in fact - http://flashlights.parametrek.com/in...1xAA,2xAA,3xAA
    What are your other requirements?

    I use an H53fc for close work. I recently got a Th20 neutral also, If cost matters, this is a great option. My plan is to mod it with an lh351d in the near future. Maybe that will change it enough to bump it to the top.

    Pick your poison from the floody or pure flood Zebralights.
    Bit of a hassle, at first, but being able to individually program the different modes to any available level is a great feature.

    Will guys I picked The HM23. It will probably help my close up needs. Thanks for your assistance.

    My first HL was the Fenix HL30 some six years back: 2xAAs, 200LM high and then down from there. Red LEDs as well.
