    I was hoping some of you guys with the M11R could comment on the control ring. Specifically, how strong is the detent in each L-M-H position?

    I had a V11R and hated the variable control ring. It would turn in my pocket and the grease would allow the control ring to turn snugly and then loosen. It was very annoying. I'd like to know how the M11R compares.

    Also, does this light have the stupid "ramp up" like the V11R? Meaning when you turn it on, there is a second of delay until the set brightness is reached.

    My V11R has been my preferred edc for about a year. I have had no problems with the control ring at all. It's firm enough not to move in my pocket. My only complaint is the weak clip.

    I 100% HATE the V11R control ring.

    I actually want a stiff ring. I want the detent to be stiff. I think ultimately I'll have to buy one to know.

    I'm currently giving my Jetbeam PC10 another go. I don't like cycling through the modes with the tail clicky and I hate strobe and SOS that aren't hidden. The problem with the M11R is I may end up wanting a tail clicky forcing me to by a V11R too. I'm putting the cart before the horse now. :D

    Thanks for the feedback!

    I'm looking at the M11r too. Comes in three colors, but none are shiny. Tan, black, and natural.
