Multiples of the same torch.. lol.

My attempt to answer this fundamentally comes down to the idea of not wanting to place a scratch on my precious torches. So a second torch is purchased to allow the first to be used, but I don't want to let the one I'm using get scratched, so another is purchased, and the cycle goes on....

Alternatively, when there are different finishes or options involved, its a case of getting the other options, a bit like card collecting.

Worthy of a thread bump… heres the current state of my collection. The incan mags on the left from biggest to smallest are mods… MAG-1185, ROP-HI, ROP-LO. I’ll probably convert them to XML at some point.

Forgot the D30, next to the HD2010 for size reference.

Wow, is there really someone on CPF with a $30,000 collection in 6mos? Can you please let me know the link if you bookmarked it?

I used to go on TimeZone (a watch forum) and some of the guys had collections in the hundreds of thousands per watch box, but Ive never heard of that with flashlights.

So if you could pls point me to that link Id really appreciate it since I dont browse the CPF much. Thanks.

Yeah its bizarre, spending that much money on flashlights in such a short time. Heck I research a 20$ light for about a month before I buy it. Then after I wait I think to myself Im glad I didnt buy it what do I need another light for, hahahha.

I much prefer looking at the collections here.
