    I have a standard nitrolon G2 which I would love to carry every day, but it is a bit big. I was wondering if there was some sort of ring one could place around the barrel, between it and the tailcap to make it easier to carry or attach a lanyard to?

    Also, which is the best LED dropin for the G2 model?

    Another newb question, but for a smaller edc light, what is most recommended. I like the Arc AAA, but am really more drawn to something with a lanyard hole and tail clickie. A little help would be appreciated. I really am not loving my AAA Maglight, good light, but a pain to turn on and focus all the time.

    Cheers,
    Sean

    Check Lighthound.com. I think they may have what you are looking for.

    yeh, lighthound sells the ring with an attachment point. You can just slip that in.

    L0D head+Microstream will give you a wicked bright AAA clickie with a pocket clip. You can use the pocket clip for an attachment point.
    L0D is a twistie but can easily be operated by one hand.

    Thanks for the hints. I will probably wait on the ring for the G2 as I just bought a P1D-CE off ebay :woohoo: That should be almost as bright as my G2 and will fit on a keychain as well.

    I still might look at the eld dropin for the G2 though.

    Cheers,
    Sean

    Been an interesting week, went from having only the G2 to now getting the P1D cE and now today I picked up a Streamlight Nano and X0. Got the ones today at The House of Knives in Kitchener. They had the Inovas on sale, $10 for the Nano and $25 for the Xo. Hard to resist. :highfive:

    Cheers,
