    Anyone use wands with their flashlights? I was initially looking for a red/amber one, but could only get my hands on a white Xeno wand. I must say I'm pleasantly surprised by the output and effect!

    I use a Zebralight SC600w III Hi and I'm not aware of any wands made to fit it. Fortunately a translucent white Fuji 35mm slide film tub fits perfectly and serves as an excellent wand / diffuser / lantern. (If I could find one in red it'd be even better!)

    If you get some light film in red you can just cut a circle out of it and put it on your lights lens before you slip the white cone on, gives a red-ish light (might need two filters if its a real bright light). Bit of a hassle but works good enough!

    Make a small cone out of construction paper. Tape it to your light. It come in any color of the rainbow. Disposable and cost next to nothing. More durable one can be made from color drink bottle.

    When I used to do more traffic control, I had a plastic cone for my Streamlight Stinger. I would put the light on strobe mode. I'm dead serious when I say it saved my life on more than one occasion. With all the flashing emergency lights, commotion and distractions it's sometimes very hard for people to see a person giving traffic commands. The cone/strobe combo was great.
