Welcome to BLF!

One variable is choice of emitters in the D18. Mine was modded to 18 x W2 emitters, 15,500 lumens, 748 meters throw. More throwey than floody. A real screamer.

Your choice depends on your preference in size, weight, tint, throw versus flood and other variables and other criteria. There are lots of factors and criteria, that is why I have 48 high performance flashlights of all different sizes and flood to throw ratios.

If you narrowed it down to these two after searching, buy both and give one to a friend or keep both.

Because I like big lights, my flashlightical views lean heavily toward both the extreme bright and the extreme heft.

You're welcome. W2 is more throw than flood.

Between the two, Emisar d18 but you should also look at the Astrolux MF01S.
