Best 14500 thrower (2018)

Hello Gents! 

 

Currently looking out for the best 14500 thrower in 2018. Is it still the old Manker T01 II? 

 

(should be a stock build, not a modded light)

The GT Micro should have more throw than the T01, but it’s not available yet.

Kronos (BLF) X5 14500 still seems competitive.

The 14500 light configuration a little small for throwing only? Usually combo of both flood and throw to balance out this kind of light,
