I agree the B too

Ok. After seeing this photo I am for B. It doesn’t look like a standard knurling.

I like the looks of A better. Seems more premium to me, maybe due to a more clearly visible pattern.

I voted the group B but some of our colleagues voted group A, it is hard to decide here......Which group you prefer? !https://media-exp1.licdn.com/dms/image/C5622AQGRtFq2LfQPiw/feedshare-shr...!
Option A: - looks better; - will probably wear less than B - won't probably provide nicer grip Option B: - more "common" knurling - anodizing will wear more than A because it has more contact points - will provide better grip Once this is a "twisty", I guess B will be a better option, so I vote *B* ! Glasses But I do like more the looks of A Innocent

I totally agree with this description and vote.

"B" is my vote but really like the distinctive looks of "A".

I’m tempted by the details in “B”, but my vote goes to “A” for the classy look

I also like “B”, for the “traditional knurling”, but… I’m now leaning towards “A” for the better aesthetics & also easier to clean grip. When debris gets caught in grooves, the traditional type is a little harder to clean.

I gotta go with A.

I always liked the “spline” knurling of the Zanflare F1, so right there is a huge nod to group A.

Plus, the B knurling looked to me like regular diamond-cut knurling, as in “usual”.

Of course, with both groups, nutty people like me would just haaaaaaaaave to have one of each… Silly

B

(though if the straight groove running the length of the battery tube was removed, A might look a lot nicer)

I do as well. The Zanflare is a much finer pitch though, and looks much better IMO

No picture visible; seems you need to be logged into TLF to see it.

Anyway, “Slate” is a nice blue-gray color.

Gotta go with A. It looks much more distinctive. It’s too easy to pass B off for some ultra-cheap no-name.

Also, I’m with Lightbringer…. Picture is missing for those of us not logged into TLF. But depending on the shade, “Slate” is good descriptor of blue-grey.

It’s smaller than I expected; even a hair smaller than the smallest AAA light I own, the Olight i3E EOS. Tech specs are amazingly similar, though styling is much different (I like it!). I also appreciate the option of different LEDs.

Sklihunt E3A Olight i3E EOS
Length 59.5 mm 60.5 mm
Head diameter 14.0 mm 14.0 mm
Body diameter 12.8 mm 12.5 mm
Lumens 100 90
Runtime, alkaline 45 m 45 m
Runtime, NiMH 75 m 70 m

Seems like the option A prevailed afterall, and it turned out very nicely Wink

I mistyped the alkaline runtime in the Olight (corrected now). They’re pretty much the same on runtimes for each chemistry, though the Olight doesn’t mention lithium primaries.

Thanks gchart! I just edited my post too! Thumbs Up

Still, it seems that this Skilhunt light is very good to be run on lithium primaries! Longer runtimes Glasses
I have some Ni-MH laying around, through, so I won’t probably invest on primaries.

Midnight blue. And I like knurling type A better.

Oh, that’s the “blue-gray” color to be named? The pic with the 4+4 lights?

To me there doesn’t seem to be much blue in it, so I’d have to retract “slate”. LOL

“charcoal” would seem to be a good description. “graphite” for a little more pizzazz.

Looks good. I wonder if it has any thermal path…
$16 shipped is not great but OK.

I liked your earlier suggestion of “Slate.” That is a gray color with a bluish tone to it.
