That's a classic.
I believe that he is the only left of the original custom makers still producing.
A lot of them flat out disappeared.
Don is a stand up guy.
Fenix HL50 Headlamp, takes AA or Cr123 batteries.
Agreed. It makes an already incredible product that much better when you know the person behind it all has great character and a sense of realism. I hope he continues doing his thing (including the dives cause his pictures and videos are just plain amazing).
A couple more for topic's sake… Plus I just got this "Blue Caribbean" paracord in to bring out the Hawaiian roots of Don's lights
So the $64000 question is: how do you like the haiku? Which emitter did ya get? Oh, and you should've spent $5 on the clip.
Have gun, Will travel.
Aaah I know.. I was planning on it, then ordered and forgot until the day it was out for delivery ..
I LOVE the Haiku.. I can't believe I never got one sooner. I still use my HDS for when I need lower outputs, but I've been carrying around the Haiku a LOT. I ended up getting the XP-G2. murrydan sort or persuaded me into that decisions and I'm glad I went with it. Love it. I think I will end up getting the tapped clip when I inevitably end up ordering the Mule.. (or Sundrop) can't decide..
My favorite (current production) McGizmo is the SunDrop ...
Oh man.. you're making it sounds even more tempting. What do you prefer on the SD over say the Mule? I know the mule has the huge flood, but isn't the SD very floody as well?
The SunDrop beam is "focused flood" ... if that makes sense ? Light is smooth out to the edge, then just stops.
The Mule beam really has no "edge" at all.
Since the SunDrop has an optic for focus, while the Mule has none, the SunDrop does add more "throw" to the beam too.
I find the SunDrop works great at ranges of from perhaps 3 - 12 feet.
Oooh ok. That makes sense. I'd seen some beam shots over at CPF comparing it with the Mule and they match up exactly with your description. I like the idea of having some throw and not sure without holding one in person how useful the Mule would be in the department for edc. Which emitter do you have in yours? Nichia? XML?
An old pocket rocket resurrected into EDC service by a new clip (actually old clip as well, they just never found each other before ), has put my HDS 325 on the shelf for now. Same beam, twice as bright, twice the runtime (on the low lows I mostly use), ~60% the size/weight, and has my favorite UI feature - momentary max from ON. QP2L-X Burst Mode on a 16340 .
The Mule is great ... out to about 5 - 8 feet in distance.
I have tried many different emitters in SunDrop bezels ... Nichia 083, N119, XP-G, XP-E, XM-L, even MC-E. My favorite is the Nichia 119.
Note particularly that some emitters don't have nearly as nice a beamshape as the Nichia does.
I carry 3 lights pretty much everday.
In my bag I have the olight sr52 and streamlight stylus pro. Then in my pocket I have the olight s10r.

That's a very nice optical illusion. At first glance, it looked as if you took a photo of your light and then took a photo of the photo on your phone. I thought that was very clever.
Hehe... I'm not smart enough. Very simply, that was the only ruler I happen be EDCing, and the photo was taken and uploaded from my EDC iPad .
Almost 3 years carrying this little light.
Lost my beloved Fenix L2D in a flash flood and replaced it with a Nitecore MT2A.
My edc lights are Fenix TK22 and Zebralight H501.
My daily edc-clothing is the Fjällräven Reporter vest so there is plenty of room for a big flashlight like the TK22.
My edc lights: Zebralight SC52w L2, Thrunite Ti3 and Nano Light Streamlight.
