I bought the BLF unit from lightmalls with the XHP70 emitter. not bad at all.

The Eagle Eye X7 is a nice 26650 light. The stock driver is good for long runtime, but not highest output. There is some mod potential with this light, but mine is stock as I like the runtimes. I have a 4C XML2 on order as the 1A is a bit blue for my liking…

To clarify, a high output light that takes advantage of the higher output 26650 batteries.

What is your budget?

By high output, what are you meaning, Amps or total lumen?

The U21 would be hard to beat for the price…

I'm really liking the PK26 too, even with it's pre-flash issue. I've been debating dumping the XHP35 and driver for a DD FET setup with possible a high bin XM-L2 U4 or XPL W2, but with my tweaks made on the stock setup, post #2: http://budgetlightforum.com/comment/983800#comment-983800, it's doing quite well now.

I got the U21, but fully modded now - it's another great form factor light.

I don't have the Shadow lights, but got the ThorFire JM07, same as the Shadow model, and love it as well, but it's obsolete. Dunno what else out there is new and exciting at this point.
