I like Sunwayman. Well made and good customer service too.

I would like to own a Surefire, I am told they make you immortal, and cure any illness. But I have to put my house on the market first, to raise the cash to buy one.

Fenix, it never lets me down, and I have an almost 10 year history of using their lights.

Not what we have but what we enjoy, constitutes our abundance.

I bought the HC50 Nitecore Headlamp here at BLF (following the advice and links), I love the thing and think that it is close to a Fenix.

I am huge Solarforce fan. I can mix and match hosts/drop-ins, build any module myself and the quality of the hosts is good enough for me.

Given my regular travel across international borders I can just throw a Solarforce, a few 18650s and my MC plus into the suitcase and I am good to go! No TSA agent has ever asked any questions after screening these items.

Larger/heavier electronics wouldn’t be suitable for my travel needs.

I'm a Sunwayman fan.

But I think the best service and best brand on the planet is MBI.

Small company, great support, innovative ideas, built from scratch, greatest precision, and simply an awesome guy.

I’m not an expert so I seek good buys on Fenix because it is safe and solid. If I had to make a guess, or a 50/50 choice, then I would assume the Fenix quality is a little higher than Nitecore, Fenix has been phenomenal for me in long term durability.

I do love my HC50, and I don’t see where it would fail, the same goes for my Olight i6, in other words, I can only give impressions of the layman, with no expert opinion.

I’m surprised no one said Convoy

“Have you forgotten about all those who called you a Bringer of Woe and hunted you like an animal?”
“Normal humans don’t go around killing people and burning towns!”
“Don’t worry. I’ll go with you! So you just follow me and no arguing, okay?”

I think once you get to a certain level they are pretty similar. Currently I favour Olight but last year it was Fenix. I also am very happy with every Nitecore and Thrunite light I have ever purchased in the past though. I don’t think you can really go wrong with any of those brands.

Sunwayman for factory lights. Convoy for fun mods.

Gonna have to try one ‘o those Paisley. It’s well known Barbers and Raccoons have style and taste.

I’m a Convoy fan boy. I admit it. :bigsmile:

ThorFire has some good lights too. Their C8 is just as good as a Convoy but uses different drivers. Their BD series are identical to the Convoy BD series.

I don’t own any EagleEye lights but I do plan on getting a X6 one of these days. It looks like a nice light. Maybe I’ll come across a deal on a good used X6 Special Edition without any road rash. Wink

Fenix, MaxToch, SunWayMan, ThruNite, and Rofis. For the more budget-conscious brands, Eagle Eye, LuckySun, Convoy and Small Sun.

No one, after lighting a lamp, puts it away in a cellar nor under a basket, but on the lampstand, so that those who enter may see the light.
