The original D25C Ti is definitely better looking than the D25C Mk II Ti or the D3C Ti. 


Yes No No

Totally agree with you.

Yes No No

I am not sure how “definite” these musings are, but, yes, I think I would give the nod to the original.

I have that 2014 edition and it’s been my EDC for going on four years and I have a few 16340 EDC lights.

The ‘best looking?’ Probably not.

Nice gif, but it's 28MB!

That's a bit much for those with crappy internet connections.

Are you referring to the last pic? If so it’s a vaping mod converted to flashlight

I think Sigma Custom lights are some of the best looking flashlight out there. Simple, elegant, extremely refined, and gorgeous materials. Too many customs look like the same kinda body style, Sigma is one of the few that sticks out. If you want more space-ship-ey, McGizmo’s lights are friggen GORGEOUS in a 2001 Space Odyssey kinda way.

Malkoff’s MD2 is probably the most “fitting” appearance for a flashlight, something about it just says “really good flashlight”. I refer to theses as “a real flashy-lighty flashlight”.

Sorry, I didn’t mention it because I was responding in the context of others messages concerning the EagleTac (or Eagtac) D25C Ti.
First version of the body design no longer available, I’m still using it with its stock emitter : nichia 219A high CRI.

The Sigma Sirius isn’t very different than the Mac’s Customs EDC which chronogically was its predecessor. Though, I’m not enough into custom flashlights (history) to know the reason why.

How about making some gorgeous looking BLF light? AAA or smaller so even expensive materials won’t make the price skyrocket. The BLF usual great design, driver, ui, led.

Though I see one problem: different members have very different tastes.
Maybe we could collect some concepts, render them and make a poll?

Flipping through this thread, I see lots of love for bare-metal lights and generally I would agree. There’s something very appealing about seeing the underlying metal just laid bare. So I submit my original “patina” finish Oveready Boss setup. Technically no longer on the market I suppose since they don’t currently offer this finish, but maybe it’ll make a return…

But really there’s no way I could choose just ONE, so here’s an under-represented category entry — cerakoted. I really love this Safety Orange+Steel+Tritium combo.

I find the Olight Warrior X Pro quite lovely. It’s clean and simple in looks and operation, super solid and impeccably built, and all the different color options have that excellent satin finish.

My wish is BLF and Sofirn make a slightly smaller version of SP36 BLF Anduril. Single battery 26650. With styling exactly like SP36.
maybe name it SP36 mini? or SP35 ?
26650, triple emitters, USB-C, Anduril.
I mean, sp36 is almost perfectly beautiful but a little bit too large for me.
Sofirn already make Anduril flashlights with single 18650 (SC31 PRO) and single 21700 (IF25A), and multiple-18650 which is SP36 … , a 26650 version will be great, right?

Yeah, I also prefer a minimalistic design.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.
