I currently have:
- Foursevens Gen2 QT2L with Burst Mode
- Streamlight Micostream
- Streamlight Stylus Pro
I am newer to flashlights and have been interested in trying out the Thrunites.
Curious to know what you guys have.
You'll find me on Candle Power Forums as a long-time regular. While I own literally a bit of everything. I do tend to prefer Made in America lights. Though honestly less out of patriotism and more out of overall quality and durability. Lights from China tend to be Bright & Cheap. Well, two things with that....
1) Bright & Cheap is the easiest trick to pull off in the flashlight industry. Absolutely easy!
2) When you buy something marketed as Bright & Cheap, you ONLY
get Bright & Cheap. For some incredibly bizarre reason, folks genuinely get upset when their Bright & Cheap monstrosity fails on them. "Oh I'm sorry, did you expect Quality was going to just be tossed in for free? Sorry"
Of course not all lights made in China are simply Bright & Cheap. I own several made in China lights that work well, lack the durability of a SureFire light; but overall quality is very good indeed. Of course none of those lights were what anyone would call "Cheap."
My favorite penlight is my Fenix LD05. Yes, a bit thick for a 2AAA penlight, but rock-solid. 2nd favorite is my 4Seven's Preon 2 model with the flat tailcap off of a Preon 1 model. Very low-profile clipped inside a back-pocket. Favorite single-AAA keychain light is my Fenix L0D (replaced by the same-bodied Fenix LD01 model). For blinding bright light, my incandescent SureFire M6. Daily carry is a modded SureFire L1 (love the dual-mode tailcap switch on that one). Nothing beats a SureFire A2 for the best of both worlds in an combination inca. and LED light. Pelican 8060 model for a full-sized LED light that has an almost exclusively unique feature. It can run well on either the rechargeable battery stick, or 4C batteries instead. Dual battery type performance is obscenely rare in the flashlight industry.
