These are all just acronyms, I was hoping for something with more character. “Sniper” was already used on a Maxtoch light that was popular here.

This light will probably be bigger than my wallet anyways, so no worries. Count this as a free bump.

My Favorite Modded Lights: X6R, S8 , X2R , M6, SP03

Major Projects:  Illuminated Tailcap, TripleDown/TripleStack Driver

I too don’t like acronyms.
Would you consider something like “Alpha”?
It sure gonna be the first among giga throwers…

BLF Mega thrower, BLF-MT. Giga’s larger. I say lets save that for the next extreme thrower down the road. Big Smile

A word play: BLF Bee

And ironical: BLF Candle

From acronyms in the poll, BLF GT sounds good to me

Aurora is also cool

Just for a moment... Okay I may stay a little longer

Ah, DOOM and the BFG. Brings me back to the year 2000 when I had to move in with my sister for a few months. She lived with her boyfriend who just played DOOM all day. I vividly recall once when I walked up behind him as he picked up the BFG, and I said, “What’s BFG stand for?” He replied with Big F**&!ing Gun. In my ignorance, I asked why they called it that to which he stopped playing, turned around and said, “Cause it’s a Big F**&!ing Gun.”

I probably shouldn’t get one, for the same reason I didn’t find a Fenix TK75 very useful, but it sounds like a fun project. I like several of the names, but especially the Big *ahem* Friendly Light.

I’m still half-tempted to get a BTU Shocker, mod it for maximum maximumness, and engrave it with a matching shocker hand sign. But it’s a bit expensive for a joke.

I already have a light called a Gladius. I use it for dueling:

Except mine has a purple blade.

BMT: Am I only one that gets sandwich in their mind? Subway has sandwich called Italian B.M.T. even thought it has dots in it's name.

 

 

Voted for GT, it always sounds good. And others could have their own nicknames for it. I would probably call mine Giant Thrower instead of Giga Thrower.

Okay, I know this thread is old. But I still like the Big Effing Light.

The light should called the T1
Because it’s the best thrower we’ve done
You ask “ What’s in a name ? “
Well it’s all just the same
Like the man himself says – “ Just have fun ! “

+1. If the option was there.

On the other hand, I don't care what it's named.
