Howdy from Texas

Hello everyone, recently found out about this forum and am happy to join. A budget friendly flashlight community is exactly what my EDC experience has been lacking. I’ve dipped my toes in mid and higher end lights, but am excited to see how far the boundary has been pushed with the more affordable options.
Have to start with the FW3a, since that’s how I discovered this forum Big Smile

Thanks for joining the party, LD5050!

My EDC is the FW3A.

I think it's a great choice for me.

@ LD5050               Welcome to BLF !!!  laughing 

 

Lived 26 years in the DFW metroplex and enjoyed it. Started way back in 1980 when Frisco was an unknown farm town. Now look at it!

Welcome to BLF LD5050! Curious to see some of your higher end flashlights. A lot of bang for your buck is always appreciated, but it’s always nice to see some of the expensive flashlights that some have.

I’d rather use my flashlight around the house than turn on the lights.

Welcome! The industry uas changed a lot since I got into this hobby in 2018. Back then, we didn’t have FT02S or EC03, and the Q8 was only a year and a half old. Now you can get 12000 lumens for about $60. Crazy. A subcompact AA light with 2000+ lumems for under $50 too!
