    @SOS24: one of the reasons I still prefer the Nitecore Tube family (the Tube and its descendants) over the cylindrical form factor like the ROFIS is that it seems to 'hang' on a key ring a bit more compactly. Works for me at any rate! Different strokes....

    L'chaim!

    It's all personal preference, lots of good choices in all shapes and sizes. However, for a keychain light I like the form factor of the Tube and some of the other similar ones for the button switch instead of a twisty.

    For me it's just easier to locate, grab and turn on quickly when I need light.

    Not incoming but just arrived. Trade deal. Not sure if I will keep them. Eiger in SS with AAA and 10180 tubes. I have one in copper and they are a bit addictive.

    I've always been a big Peak fan. I never came across that 10180 tube though. Is that new from Peak or custom?

    Not sure when but they were available several years ago. They are kinda cool because all the Eiger heads fit (I think; maybe not the turbo).

    Have you any particular use in mind for this style of torch? How will you use it? The only similar style I have is a Biolite, what with having a rotating wire clip, it's pretty versatile.

    It's just so much fun having stuff coming in the mail. Got my Peak stuff coming and a Christy in brass.

    Went on a bit of an Olight S1R Baton II bender this weekend. :D I was wanting one of the Limited Edition Ti versions, but couldn’t decide which one I wanted, the gold PVD or the bead-blasted. In the end I just bought ‘em both. And then to make matters worse (or better, ha!) I popped for the copper version a day later. So all 3 are incoming. :)

    Well I felt a strong pull towards the pack where you get the four seasons in titanium plus the copper one. I wrestled down my urges and got a standard black aluminium as I need it for my EDC man-bag. I was sorely tempted tho'
