Welcome to BLF

I know I bought six of the Ultrafire 504Bs because they were $8 dollars compared to $18 dollars for the Solarforce L2P. I will admit I sold all my 504Bs now except one and replace them with the much nicer but double the price Solarforce hosts, I blame Foy for this.

I don’t know why people went off on a tangent about Surefire. Mr Krab never mentioned Surefire in his post only Solarforce versus Ultrafire.

I am already visualizing the duct tape over your mouth.

 I like the new solarforce much better than the old ..I agree it looked cheaply painted .that's why I asked if Burro had multiples ...My advice is buy the new stuff over the old .And I agree with E1320 all of my ultrafire has been replaced with solarforce .

 

 

 

Sorry Burro I wasn't insinuating you didn't know Solarforce .

Welcome to BLF. I never had any run ins with moderators over there but have read enough posts from those who have experienced unfair treatment that I can well understand some of the ill will. I just found it too confrontational for my piece of mind. Too many threads degenerated into personal attacks and typo abuse over trivia. This place really encourages creative thinking and it’s denizens are extremely helpful and humorously supportive. You’ll like it here.

Burro - "anyone that who tells you Solarforce is as good or better hasn’t owned both"

Hmmm . . .

Don’t get all worked up, Foy.

Burro gets a bujowski from Grunta for every 10 times he defends CPF or Surefire…

Mr Krabs, a very warm welcome to you (just in case DM51 or Norm forget to do it).

Rats, finally sold my 2010 509hp Mustang...now I can buy more lights!

Sold the red one too! Now guess what I drive, doing my penance for 500 hp commuters...

I really think you need to look at SF’s HA, I not overly impressed with 6P’s a Solarforce L2P is definitely a great cheap alternative to the 6P.

PS I resent the Grunta remark, I call it the way I see it (which seems to rub some members up the wrong way), I’m a big boy and can make up my own mind.

Your bujowski comment was wasted on me, I’m not familiar with the term and Google was no help.

Welcome!

I own a few Solarforce ‘L’ (I like the L2P the most) series lights and a ton of Surefires (65+). I like both but there are major differences between the two manufacturers. Surefire has a lifetime warranty for starters. I see folks slamming the P6. Keep in mind that the P6 (the one everybody has copied for years) is the bottom of the line for Surefire. Entry level, if you will, for Surefire lights. 20 years ago it was known as the 6P and had NO competitors. It is still a darn good light. Top of the line would be the Hellfighter 4. Yes, they are expensive but everybody’s “budget” is different.

I’m not going to say that the Surefire lights are the best at everything. Some are and some are not. I will say that I have never had one I didn’t like and didn’t keep in the collection. I can’t say that about any of the other manufacturers I have purchased from. Excluding some custom builders ($$$$) that I have also spent money on to feed my sickness.

I have purchased many inexpensive lights (lots of good information here on them) based on members experience and for the most part, I have been pretty happy with most of them. Some, not so much. They get given away. The great thing about lights is that there is something for everybody. No matter what the price. Enjoy. Smile

No Surefire tattoo – Yet. I could use a Surefire neon light though! If anybody finds one, let me know. :bigsmile:

I like Surefire stuff, so I buy it. They make great weapon accessories too. I buy them too. If you don’t like Surefire, yep – you guessed it, don’t buy it. Couldn’t be simpler.

We're just a bunch of rude, aging men with an opinion.  Nothing wrong with freinds mixing it up a little every once in a while.  I'm probably one of the few people to admit that the only reason I have only one Surefire (the bottom one) is because I can't afford 100 of them.

And, you're right; I am not at all impressed with the 6P.
