Hi from Wales (UK)

Good morning all,

I stumbled upon this forum yesterday whilst researching the confusing button functions on my Nitecore EA4. I found an excellent guide on here, and ended-up having a mooch around.

I’m a bit of a gadget hound (so I guess I’m in the right place), and my head torches and flashlights are integral to that.

I’m a very bass keen fisherman (the saltwater kind), chasing European Seabass most of the year, and spending a couple of weeks of Spring in Massachusetts each year chasing Striped bass. Much of my fishing is at night, so headlights and flashlights are integral to that. On a typical fishing session I carry …

Petzl Tikka Headlight (the red mode is important to me), + spare. The key here is ‘lack’ of brightness.
Nitecore SRT5 Detective. Great for using when I’m walking the coast into an area, with the variable beam being perfect for a combination of stealth and vision.
2 x Princeton Amp 1L, customised with neck lanyard, and one with a (red sharpie) red lens.

Then there’s the Photon Freedom on my keychain, etc …

I ordered a couple more lights yesterday, so will see how I get on with those.

Anyway, good to find like-minded people, and thanks for letting me in.

Welcome…

Modding is making something how you want it to be, not how it comes stock...

Welcome Lewisman, I hope that you will save money here and will only find flashlights on BLF that are actually useful in real life. Evil

Hello mate,
Nice introduction. I have an EA4 it’s a nice torch although I never use it. I just keep it as a back because it runs on AA batteries.

It's moments of madness that keep us sane.

Welcome to BLF Lewisman! The Nitecore EA4 was my first nice flashlight. I eventually gave it to my dad, but unfortunately he put in alkaline batteries and they leaked and destroyed the EA4. My next gift to him was a set of eneloop AA batteries!

I’d rather use my flashlight around the house than turn on the lights.
