high end flashlight preference

Postby LazyGhost » Tue Dec 20, 2011 9:57 pm

So you guys who invest in top quality flashlights, what do you recommend? A buddy just got a Fenix LED for xmas and i looked at it today and it looks awesome. I was looking at the Fenix TK70 earlier and that thing is a beast. Pricey though.

I have a cheap one that is rubber coated, then replaced the dual AA's with 3 C123 and a krypton bulb. saw it on a forum once. the hard part is finding a light base that will accept the 123 batt size in diameter

for the price, I've found the 3D cell LED maglite hard to beat. Its very bright, shines as far out as I need and runs for days. I accidently left one on for 2 plus days and its still got battery life left.

I have a flashlight made by "Rocky" that I got from Sams Club. That sucker is bright ! I love it. It came in a two pack, one is 6" and the other is 4". Paid about 19 bucks for the pair.

I've never been a fan of spending tons of dollars on any equipment that is easily lost or stolen. I used to do that. Until I crushed an expensive cell phone in the tailgate of my truck and saw friends lose similar stuff over the side of boats. Too much nice stuff has also "walked off" when left unattended somewhere. For me, a cheap $20 rechargeable 1 milion candlepower "headlight" style light will work just fine. It will light up half the universe at night and I don't have to worry about what happens to it.

I use the little coleman brand lights from walmart. They are 120 lumen and are very tuff. I use em daily offshore. They are $25 and aren't but about 5.5" long.

high end flashlight preference

Postby mogua13 » Sun Jan 22, 2012 2:25 pm

ImageI have owned maglite streamlites and alot of others but I have found a brand that is hands down better then any I have used. it's led lenser I carry a p5r hunting it's tiny holds one AA size battery and puts out 220 lumens and will shine about 180 meters. there bout 65 bucks. beams adjustable to and it's rechargeable. I also have a v2 by them that's only 90 lumens but the lens makes it appear alot brighter. it will mount in a scope ring and shine bout 180 meters as well. runs on 3 aaa these are single LEDs lights. check them out there top notch and made very well in Germany I think.
