Hello From The U.K.

Hi there, been looking round and finally decided to join you all.

I've only recently got into flashlights.

So far I've managed to get a Nitecore MT2A for EDC and a load of Solarforce for playing flashlight Lego with.

I've got a few drop-ins on the way and some items from the Solarforce website that are way cheaper to buy direct and a Lantern Kit that I've not seen on sale in the U.K.

welcome to the fun.

it sounds like your well on the way to becoming your friends torch guru. Next step is to find a nice pocket knife to pair with your edc selection, then you can have dilemmas like I do – which light and knife go with my current ensemble….

That makes me feel better, I though I was the only one who had EDC dilemmas like that!

I have more knife/torch choices than footwear choices (paraboots, hiking boots, steel toe capped boots or slip ons tbh).

you might be a flashaholic if……

I came to this hobby from Knife collecting, nothing very expensive and recently going over to the Chinese made knives, they offer great value and seem to be built to a high. if sometimes patchy, quality. I've never had a bad one yet.

It's sometimes difficult to decide what to carry on any particular day, for legality's sake it's my very sharp Spyderco Grasshopper but if I have a heavy cutting job then it'll be the Enlans that get an airing.

Not much of a bargain and I doubt the lumens but evilbay has just netted me a CREE XM-L T6 5-Mode 1000Lm LED Bulb for Surefire 6P G2 G3 9P. at £7.26 ($ 10.50) just the waiting on H.K. Postal service now.

Now where did I put that glow in the dark powder? (shines torch) Ah there it is.

EDIT. I forgot to say thank you to all that have greeted me.
