Still Thinking About This One

Funny how time will drop prices.  LOL!  I eamiled the seller to see what his best offer is.  I'm still considering to make this one my birthday present to myself.

Sweet !  But my wallet would cry out in pain ...

 Always remember , the easiest thing in the world to do , is to expel hot air from your lungs and through some vocal chords ..
The resulting sound may , or may not be worth listening too ….

I hear you.  I really don't want to spend more than $100.  But I really like the looks of that light.  But I was wanting the whole case and all.  But again the shipping costs more.  And I don't have to have the aluminum case.  I wished they would have made the 18650 carrier to hold 3 cells.  If I buy this light, it will be my most expensive flashlight I own.

Seller just told me $112.  I wonder if I ought to counter offer. 

 

It's always gonna be up to you if it's worth it or not, but from an ebay "best offer" stand point I absolutely would pass if he can't come down substantially more. I usually aim for 80-85% realistically for a best offer bid. He didn't even come down 3% so unless you really really want it, I'd pass. But if you were already fine with $115 then go for it.

 

A short while back I was selling an HTC phone on ebay I picked up off of craigslist and was offered $30 on a $110 listing price, haha. I already had an auto decline in place. Those two phones at $70 for the pair turned out to be an easy and tidy profit having sold at something like $210.

I would really splurge and get the case too. Cool You're only your current age once. Wink

Just save a $1.00 a week and put it in a jar. You'll recoup the costs by your next bday.

Problem solved. lol

That's what I am kind of thinking. 

Here's a great review on this light.  That just makes it more tempting.

Looks Great!, and XM-L awesomeness! I would be over this, if the V60R wasn't another to consider, Price wise, this is way more affordable, with more throw!

 V60C is what I meant, sorry... Compared to the SR51, its a whole $60 more!!!. And doesn't have anywhere near the same throw, just a different UI.

Actually I'm not.  There is nothing in it for me when I put one of his links up.  The light I got from him seems to burn brighter than others.  Take it or leave it. I'm just stating what I got is all. 

But if it will make you feel better I won't put anymore of his links up.

Someone just paid full price. Go ahead and put in a counter offer if you haven't already. It doesn't hurt to try Smile

$135 shipped for all of it including both battery holders is the best price I have found.  But I can buy the SR50 for $108 shipped for the same deal.  What shoulda guy do?   

Regarding SR50

Think about if you'll use it on a daily basis or not. It's a great light but it has a blue tint. Maybe you'll not notice it if you don't have another light with you.

Yea but it still looks to be a very bright light and almost looks to be sort of flourescent.
