I like the looks too, better than the hd2010. But personally I don't care much for 26650 flashlights, it makes the light fatter than a 18650 model, and the 26650 batteries are not as much better as they are bigger.

There's two hd2010 lights at tmart on special for 25 dollars, so not much gain on those with a group buy I guess?

Ah I see, thanks. I had read the bits re no modding by tmart and was cool with that, I want to mod it myself to learn on. But I had not realised that it wasnt available in XML2 nor in 2800ma. That last one surprises me most as I see that number talked about in much smaller flashlights. I either assumed, was confused, or both.

As I said, I have much to learn. Cheers.

Actually you got m interested in this one. But I must not, I ordered enough lights i have no real explanation for already. I can justify the HD2010 as I bought the pill, it would be wasteful not to use it. I cant justify the pill, but that was only $20 so is much easier to get away with. Big Smile

Plus 1 (I like the looks) Wink

2nd choice HD2010

I don't know, all the ones I see are in the thirties, for pricing. I don't see anything priced in the twenties for the 2010.

I have had enough HD-2010s, even had a couple from Tmart.

How about a UF-2200 ?

Ah, I see now, sorry : http://www.tmart.com/search.html?q=hd+2010 gives prices in euro's, the cheapest is 24.56 euro and that is over 30 dollars, my mistake

At this point, the majority seems to lean towards the HD2010. I can understand the desire to have one or more than one, as I need two myself, but I can also see the negatives. It does go on sale often and there is the driver lottery with it.

The rest seem to be hit or miss, so I am going to say that the HD2010 will be one that I ask the Tmart rep about.

 

How does everyone feel about this light? BeamTech BT-950L It has been reviewed at BLF here.

 

No one selection will please everyone and the majority will rule in the long run.

They don't sell host only. Tmart just sells stock lights. They have never gotten into the host/mod/component thing like some sellers. Actually, they are more like DX where they sell all kinds of items and flashlights is just a small part of the mass of items they sell.

I'd try the BeamTech, they probably won't go lower than their sale price on a HD2010 anyway.

Well there no point of grupbuy if the price would be the same as regular price.

Not with XM-L’s. And most certainly not without knowing what the driver was like.

Well, there's no advantage negotiating a price without knowing what other sellers are asking for the item.

I like the suggested lights. Good thrower for the size and a low price would entice me.

Well if many want a HD2010, but several people don’t like the standard HD2010s, here’s one more unique and different that could satisfy both: https://dx.com/p/uranusfire-ur-816-cree-xm-l-u2-800lm-5-mode-white-flash...

Ultra Fire V2 looks like a toilet plunger. :Sp
Yezl Y3 looks nice, like an HD 210, but I’m not a fan of two buttons.
Fandy Fire C108 looks really nice. +1
The BeamTech BT-950L looks like a C8 with edges to tear pockets.
The Sky Ray R5-S3 looks like a McGizmo Haiku. I remember asking McGizmo if he would consider making one in aluminum once. The response he gave me left me feeling like he was saying, “Go away, piss boy. The rich are talking and you are wasting my time.” So I’m pretty sure that I’m going to get one out of childish spite.
Taste is individual, those are my likes.

I just saw the UranusFire post. LMAO! Actually the light looks good. I prefer the grey one. It might actually be good and a heck of a conversation starter. If we change the name to BLF-Fire or BLFAnusFire… Well then we really have something. So +1 for the Butt-burner

What about the convoy L2? It has some of that toilet plunger look to it but otherwise good for XML or MTG2 builds.

R5 like this. Maybe if you scrape off the anodization and polish it up.

$20 but not a thrower. Be fun to toss an MTG2 into, assuming it can take some copper jammed down it.

Is that what you did, OL. Scrape and polish? It looks legitimate.
