For me its a very simple Maglite XL50. Cheap and works well.

The XL 50 is a great flashlight. I really like the low setting too.
Have you tried those ML25's?

My PKDL PR-1 after 1 year of daily pocket carry...

Shiny, new looking lights are pretty but wear and age sure do add character that makes them even more appealing. It's always great to see a well used and loved torch!

I  have 2 little AAA Moonlight, beside both beds $2.50 AUD the pr. Del.
perfect for night walkies. (Ordered 3. 2 worked).
Main work round home. an old Ultrafire 68. AA Batt. does 90% of work.
Walkabout. Usually my old well scratched Ultrafire again. S-R5 with XM-L hi?
18650.
Outside. a 4 x 18650.   9 x XM-L2  Sky-Ray King.
All cheap. All rear springs copper wire soldered.  None flickering
Plus all gave extra output.
Mates told me Buy at least ONE good one.They all have mainly. I'm just starting.

Apart from a coupla loong throwers.None of the up to $200+ torches perform better than mine.
Nicer looking. More complex innards.
I just like 20% 50% 100%.
or just straight 100%. on-off Fine.
Plus mine. in total. would give me change from$150 over 6 or 7 yrs.
I'd love a good torch. But old fart on Pension. It ain't gonna happen hey.  (NOT BEGGING, I wouldn't accept).
I just appreciate looking at the beautiful things.  Specially the copper and bronzed\shaded ones.
So keep putting up the photo's yes. Large size.for my old eyes. chuckle.

Lately, I've been carrying these three, on-person, while not at work.


Left to Right: Armytek Dobermann XP-L cool white, Zebralight SC600w Mk III, and Zebralight SC600w (XH-P35, 4500K  Mk II L2, XM-L2, also 4500K).

The Armytek Dobermann XP-L is the only cool white light of the bunch.  I tend to prefer neutral and warmer tints, and the Nichia 2119B is my absolutely favorite tint of all).


...like this Surefire 6P 18650 Oveready-bored body, with Solarforce A001 head, B2 stainless bezel, S20 stainless switch, and loaded wit a Sportac Triple Nichia 219B 2-mode drop-in).  This one is almost always carried in a bag, these days.

But, sometimes it's nice to have a high-powered cool white spotter, and this one works very well, and is built like a tank.
