Simple, but friggin annoying if you want high and have to one handed scroll through the modes you don’t want. I actually don’t mind twisty UI’s, but why no mode memory? Is there a single negative to having mode memory?
okéh i let you win :P
hence i deleted all my posts in dis thread ;)
Blinding yourself in the middle of the night? :D
Or your spouse or the people in the restaurant or the people in the theatre…
I really dislike mode memory. My memory is not that big and to also remember what mode my flashlight FHS was in last time would take up too much of my valuable memory space.
LOL! Same here. Give me a light that starts in low and has no memory everythime for an EDC. Only with an outdoor monster would I consider starting in high.
I'd be all over the titanium if it was the same color as the prototype
But this production sample of titanium???
same here… something got lost in translation at the finishing process…
Yeah, just pm:d Ric about changing my order to a black one, didn’t order one in gold!
They grey one looked really nice, really like the color of my BLF A8 too…
I’m guessing the original silver sample was painted or powdercoated. it doesn’t look like anodize. The finished product is definitely ano. It’s too bad they could not (or did not) match the prototype colour. I would have been tempted to add one to my order.
The gold is weird, was definitely looking forward to the grey but oh well. Two of my three nice lights are black so something different to use will be nice.
Saw that but then djozz says here that it’s plastic so now I’m not so sure because the material is not specified on the sales page.
The golden version is swank but I suspect it would be even hotter with a twist ring set full of cubic zirconias (and an XM-L2 warm white emitter).
Looks like I’m the minority, but I, for one, am happy about the goldish color. (The original gray was good too.) Have a strange thing with gold lately. White is my absolute favorite though.
dont tell me your one of them ones with a white car and gold rims
I have a question, but I’m relatively new here, so please don’t beat me up, but aren’t the Skyray Kings available in gold, and aren’t people liking that? Or does everybody dislike the gold Skyray Kings also?
No, gold car and white rims
I like "gold/light brown" SRK.
EDIT: and ordered that weird colored titanium (anything but black is +++)
its all a matter of taste. the SRK was only available in gold when it first came out.
personally, i would not buy anything gold unless absolutely necessary
edit: i agree on the black lights… lately i prefer grey/titanium colored lights. with blue boots to be exact
Having memory wouldn’t mean it’d start in high though. Lets face if it you use low 99% of the time like you guys seem to claim. Then with memory it’d start on low at least 99% of the time as that’d have been the mode you’d used.
Ok, thanks for the explanation. I thought that it’d because something like the gold color ones would get dirty too easily or something.
Maybe it’s a sign of “new-bishness”, but I kind of like the gold. I would have preferred the grayish color originally posted, but gold is ok with me.
Funny thing though, when I saw that side-by-side picture, I pre-ordered a black one (already had pre-ordered the titanium one), so maybe, subconsciously, I don’t like the gold color or something :)…
Either that or you just like them both lol…
