Budget Sexy Flashlights

One of the things I like about collecting flashlights is just some of them are really cool looking. I know there are some really nice looking custom flashlights out there, but at this point I’m not interested in spending $$$ for one. What do you think is one of the best looking budget flashlights out there? They don’t have to be copper or some other metal, I just seem to be drawn to them.

I own a Lumintop AAA and an Olight S1A both in copper and I think they are really good looking lights.

My wish list:
Astrolux S41S in Stainless or Colored
Reylight – many of them are
Convoy S2 in clear

I find Convoy S2+ Desert Tan pretty sexy. I also love the looks of my white Haikelite MT02.

I would skip the S41S it’s so heavy and the knurling is so aggressive that I never use mine. I ordered this enogear wich seems to be a nice one.

I agree the Convoy Desert Tan is a good looking light. Plus I’ve seen some people heat up Convoys to give them even more character. I like the Haikelite.

That is sad to hear about the S41S, I’ve always thought that was a good looking light. I’ve never seen the Enogear, that is a cool looking light. Is it only available on their site?

I have one of those Enogear AA’s and it is a wickedly good little light. Great looking too. Just ordered their TC8 Ti 18650 light as well. I just love it.

I have a Reylight Pineapple AA that goes everywhere with me and am hoping to order a Ti Lan pretty soon.

I like the look of the eagle eye x6.

I know is if they made a clear version it would be a instant hit

Blf has changed a lot since I've been here. Lots of snow flakes and easily offended over nothing. When the forum use to be great and people joked around and could take a joke. It's a forum it's not that serious. Let's make BLF great again!

May be it is sexy looking, but very uncomfortable to use. Slippery, clip disturbs to put the knob back on.

And here I thought I was done buying lights for awhile. Y'all gotta stop this...

Great... Carnac the Magnificent tells me I just signed up for yet another expensive hobby.

That’s a good looking light. Not a fan of the LED or output but this would make a great host if it’s easy to modify.

I’ve always wanted an Olight S Mini Ti in Rainbow PVD. I know rainbow Ti is about as mall ninja as you can get, but I just love the look of that light.

Zanflare F2, AAA with their tres kewl “spline” knurling.

WF-502B, still one of my favorite styles.

HS-802, cheap finish but wicked style, like half of a rifle scope.

Jet-I and Jet-II, love the charcoal-gray color, and minimalist styling.

Well as soon as I get it I will see how easily accessible it is. I’m not a huge modder myself. I just think it’s darn good looking. It will let me see in the dark too so that’s a bonus. LOL

Ti Rainbow mini is awfully good looking too. I’d buy something like that. Just recently picked up a copper one.

I agree this is one of the sexiest flashlights, and 21mm is pretty slim for an 18650 light. I saw this online about a year ago somewhere, can’t remember where but it had a brand name, does anyone remember what it was?

About the most comfortable to hold. and looking good to.
I reckon is the Sky-Ray S-R5 with XM-L2 in there.
Tube lights could never look anything but a bit of copper pipe with ends blanked off.
UltraFire early 68’s are a decent look too. Baby Macho.
My little Jetbeam Jet 1 MK is a nice looker too.
Everybody different. We’ll never all agree.

Whups, think I misspoke. I meant the F3 (AAA) light.

Nice “clean” design…

Wow!  That thing looks like a light saber!  Way cool! Smile

 

What light is that?  Is it still made?

Looks like a Solarforce L2 head on a L2T tube that’s either stainless or has been chrome plated?

The L2T stainless version that I know of is different and has diamond knurling.

I just posted link above with other manufacturer (or just seller?), and it’s available.

Thanks Enderman,Yes that was exactly it! Thought it was Banggood but I wasn’t positive.

Nice that it’s still available from Enogear though. (XXX-Man’s post)

I believe Enogear is seller not Mfg of it.

I don’t think Enogear is a manufacture of lights, but they seem to source some of the nicer unique models.
