    I'll eventually get around to grabbing the M21 with the CULPM1. I already have umm...three C8s. :/

    This will be my first, I never really thought I needed a thrower, until now. Gotta start somewhere I guess. I will be curious to see a beamshot of that S2+, should be interesting.

    Just got this in the mail today. My wife is a fan of IRONMAN, so when I saw this Olight I3T limited edition I had to pick it up for her for Christmas.[​IMG]

    Just received another Olight S1R Baton ll for a spare. I also got a Baton Pro. Wanted another S30R Baton ll for backup but they seem to have discontinued that model.
    I really like the Olight brand.

    Just arrived; the new Nitecore TINI2. I had the original and liked it so decided to try this little guy. I must say that it is the coolest little light I have seen. So much technology packed into a little frame. The screen will tell you pretty much everything about it including run time in each mode, battery status and too much else to mention here. Mainly for me, it has a 2 stage lockout function and no delay at turn-on which was a bit annoying on the original.
    For most this will be more of a gimmicky toy but it sure is fun at 500 lumens turbo.

    I sooooo love my Vinh lights, great balance of power to $$$. I have about 8 - 10 of his lights all from about 5 years ago. Been EDC'ing the Sunwayman V11Rvn for over 5 years now, super worn from constant carry but still works great.

    I get tempted from time to time to pick up another powerhouse but I have a few already that get no real use so it seems like such a waste :-(

    For xmas my wife bought flashlights (6) for the guys. I was a little bummed she didn't consult me. I was prepared for utter disaster.

    Streamlight dualies 3AAA.

    I was blown away. The flood bottom so you can see where you are walking and a good thrower. Runs on AAs. Wow! I didn't get one because she said I was tooo hard to buy for. Hahaha. I've been going about flashlights all wrong I tell you.


    One showed up today because I'm a big cry baby she said. Lol. Very cool light. [​IMG]

    I agree. I really like the quality of his work. Recently got his AAA ToolVn in titanium with a rubber clicky and what a little powerhouse. I normally stay away from Lithium Ion batteries and this only runs on 10440 IMRs. I was looking for a small pocket light that does it all and this is it. Programmable for over 20 options, I have a selection with 6 levels. Rarely use the last 3 but there if needed. The setup starts low and ramps up to nicely spaced outputs to crazy bright. He also manages to find NOS or rare lights the are interesting. I really like this version of the Tool in titanium without the 2 metals (titanium and brass rings or whatever they use in the new version). I think the look cheap in that configuration. He also uses extra copper heat sinks internally.
    Just love it; but gotta stop!!!

    Yeah, I got out a few years ago but whenever I get one of his emails I end up poking around on his site and consider giving into the temptation but then I look at the collection of lights I already have and just can't justify it... whew. One day though, I am sure I will give in.

    Hmm, I'm sure I posted here when ordered, but I can't see my post neither here nor in my history. Anyhoo...

    Taken by the quality and sensible charging solution of my new SC31B, but missing the convenience of angled Tiara A1, I ordered and today received Sofirn SP40.

    [​IMG]

    Very similar builds but very different output: the SP gives much warmer tint, is dimmer, and is much floodier compared to the cold and throwy (but with a good spill) SC. Also, the low/med/high mode points are toned down a lot. Comes with a headband and an extra tube that allows to use an 18350 cell rather than 18650.

    [​IMG]

    The tube should be compatible with my SC, but I can't screw it in all the way, will investigate sometime later (fits well the SP so I don't think it's defective). All in all, very happy with both. If I was to have one gripe, it's the lack of a dedicated lanyard hole -- the only way to attach a lanyard without mods is to the pocket clip, which is a so-so solution.

    Two more differences: the SC has a breathing power button option, while the SP doesn't; and the SP has a magnet in the butt cap, while the SC doesn't.

    I got in on the Warrior Mini sale on March 1, so I have a Warrior Mini with Obulb coming in. I wanted the Desert Tan, but it was sold out, so I have to settle for the standard black.
