    Wow, I guess I won't find those over at the BLF then?

    I will raise you a "Crusader Superconductor Challenge Coin" ;o)

    Got a stainless steel bezel for the FW3A. Like it a lot. Tried out an aqua GITD insert, but it doesn't perform as well as the green (photo).

    I’ve had one of those mules for many years, and I never tire of looking at it.

    "National Flashlight Day"? Is that really a 'thing' now?

    Is there anything that doesn't have a 'national' day left? Yikes.

    L'chaim!

    @Captainkirk exactly what it is! I’m really really loving it so far and the 8 or 9 aux led options it comes with are awesome.

    Pretty amazing in such a small and relatively inexpensive package. We have come so far from the Ray-o-vac 2D cell of my youth.

    @Captainkirk very much so and the price is definitely right I got the light and some extras for I think 65 bucks.

    As a kid, I looked upon old incandescent consumer flashlights as "stone age" devices. Always felt they were so woefully inadequate and that companies should make better ones. Once LED emitters were realized, I so could not wait until flashlight companies started producing them. Today? They've come up with ones I never dreamed we'd see. The Emisar, Fireflies, and Lumintop flashlights governed by Anduril are so wonderful. Plus, we've got some pretty solid inexpensive flashlights in AAA form factor that are a delight to EDC, far more advanced & capable than the 2D flashlights we once had as kids. Where do we go from here? I have a feeling we'll eventually see another LED emitter breakthrough & find even more lumens output with lower thermal consequences, to the point where our smart phones will put out 500 lumens easily for many hours of runtime..

    It's a Reylight Triple Dawn in Ti. I love it, very nice pattern for a triple, perfect tint, heavy, lovely tritium and a very tactile switch.

    Came with a 18650 tube too, with that it is a true monster.
