    Just arrived today. Couldn't pass up a deal on this PF01. Swapping it in and leaving behind my Inova T2 for a bit.

    Fenix UC35 and Thrunite Ti4 (occasionally).

    Also got a Nitecore Tube attached to my jacket.

    I've got the PF02 and for the price it's a nice light. I keep it on my bed stand or my desk. PF01 incoming as well. I'm definitely watching Thorfire in the future, they might come out with something interesting.

    What kind of grease do you guys use for your O-rings and threads? I want to pick some up to have around but not sure what ya'll prefer and for what reasons? I want a silicone grease I'm assuming? Was thinking of ordering some Nyogel or finding some Super Lube at my hardware store but not sure exactly which kind to get… Don (McGizmo) mentioned he uses Christo lube for his lights, it's just so :censored: expensive..

    I have 75 lights (to date), and I use Nyogel 760G in all of them. I've never had an issue, with this lubricant, and I recommend it wholeheartedly.

    Cleaning and lubricating a flashlight's threads is a good practice. As the threads get used, over time, they can start to become gritty, and wear out prematurely.

    You'll definitely want to use a non-petroleum-based lubricant. I use Nyogel 7650G, which is a synthetic-based grease designed especially for flashlight threads and o/rings. It is superb, and I use it on every one of my lights. That one tube last me about a year, and on a butt load of lights :)

    When you're lubricating the o-rings, if you put a simple line of grease over the entire o-ring area, this should automatically lubricate the threads as well. You just loosen and tighten the the head (and tail cap) assembly (whichever applies). The point of lubricating the threads/o-rings is to ensure the waterproof abilities of the light. Doing this periodically helps to ensure your light will stay dry inside, even if it's soaked, outside.

    I see what appears to be a FourSevens Preon 2, in Toxic Green (If I'm not mistaken); but what's with the headband? Is it for a headlamp, and do you use the somehow use the Preon 2, mounted in that; or is it some sort of neck lanyard?

    I know...seems like a silly question, but the curiosity was driving me nuts; so I had to ask.

    Thank you very much david57strat! I ended up going to my local hardware store this evening before I got your response and picked up some of this stuff...

    [​IMG]

    Do you think I will be okay with this stuff for now? Or is the Nyogel that good where I would be better off returning this stuff and ordering some Nyo?

    Appreciate the info!

    *Did you order the tube online? If so, which site?

    Today it's my new Thorfire Pf01, I'm at home for most of the day and it fits perfectly in my relaxing-at-home-pants (cotton sweat pants) along with my trusty Spyderco Pro-grip.

    It's a decent light for being a AAA light with a clickie switch and for the price (less than $ 11 shipped). I consider it to be better than it's big brother the Pf02. If I need more power in a similar package I would opt for my Thrunite Ti4 rather than the Pf02.
