    In the mail I've got a 4/7s Quark Pro QPA w/ deep carry clip. Right now I usually pocket carry a Quark ML titanium. It used to be on my keychain but the split ring broke and I've never replaced it. I also carry a Fenix LD 22 or TK 11 in my jacket pocket when I'm out. I may upgrade to the PD 32 when I get back from summer travels. :) Oh ya, no pic of the TK11... now where have I put it!?

    He won't be able to get back to you, but that's the DD. The D2 is black.

    I EDC a Surefire 6P, with McClicky Tailcap, Rechargeable 123s, and some UltraFire eBay special bulb, in that surefire holster. I've had this light for 5 years now.

    Very interested how you rate the P7 compared to the others?

    Does anyone here know a cheap diffuser cap that will fit an Eagletac D25C (20mm diameter)?

    The P7's ability to focus its beam, really makes it worth carrying (in spite of its bulk); but it's not a super-high output light, as compared to the V11-R or the D25LC2 (for their size). The latter put out a nice floody beam (as does the P7), but when I need to focus in on something farther away, they're pretty much useless - which is why I carry the P7. The P7 is, by far, the heaviest light (second only to the EA4, but that's another ball of wax, altogether. The EA4 blasts the P7 out of the water in all ways, but it's inability to focus the beam).

    If I could get something (relatively small) with the forward clicky and the indestructibility of the M20-X, the focusing capabilities of the P7, the magnetic control ring of the V11-R (for infinite output adjustment), and most of the modes available on the D25LC2 and the XL-200, I'd seriously consider that, over carrying those other five.

    I'm not sure such a light even exists, in such a small package, and at a reasonable price point. In summary, up close, the P7 is nice and floody, with the capability of focusing down to a very narrow beam (particularly more useful for spotting street numbers far away, than the other, more powerful lights) which actually makes it outperform any of the other lights (other than the EA4 or the SK-68 at greater distances); but one of the most undesirable features is that it runs on AAA batteries; so the run time isn't nearly as good as that of the other (18650, or 14500) lights. I paid about thirty bucks for my P7, so it felt like a reasonable investment. They make a far more powerful (and rechargeable) version (with a different battery chemistry), but at that price point, I may as well just buy a Fenix TK75, or a Thrunite TN30 (not nearly as compact, but real high output lights). Thrunite's TN31 is tempting, but both it, and the TK75 are out of my budget, at the moment.

    If you'd like, I can take and post some beam shots, comparing some of them.
