It's 5 Light Friday - the game where you pick your 5 favorite lights and then ship the rest to me :))
OK, so I had the thought the other day while driving home - what 5 lights would i keep if i had to get rid of everything else? Imagine a hardship (well dont, but play along..), or some reason you would have to sell, give away, donate, or whatever your collection and you could only keep 5 torches, what would they be? I mean this isn't hard for a collector of anything to do, right? We probably have imagined scenarios somewhat like this before with other things at least once, and tested ourself on what if we had to make the cut?
Ok, so the chips are down in your game of life, what's making the cut? heres mine, for this week :))
(L to R)
Noctigon KR4 (xpl-hi 4000k 5D)
Noctigon K1 (xhp35 HI 4000k)
Reylight Pineapple Brass (Nichia 219c 4000k)
Wild Trail WT90 (sbt90.2)
FireFlies E12r (sst20 4000k FA4)
Here's why -
KR4 - emitters - has the nicest xpl-hi 5D of any I have seen - rosy, bright and perfect! and its a KR4, one of my favorite edc's ever. But mostly because of the LED's id keep it.
K1 - emitter - The nicest emitter out of any i have. - the 4000k xhp35 HI looks more like 3000k, and is a perfect tint of orange-ness for a thrower.
Reylight - form and function! the thing is perfect edc size, fits perfect in hand, and is solid! oh, and i like tail switches!
WT90 - c'mon, its the WT90! we have lights because they light things up, right? this one does it WELL! this beat out the K75 btw..
E12r - Form and Function! The led's are nice even though id prefer another, the button is fine with me. everything about this is just right, and its bright as hell! but doesn't have to be, its a great "everything" light. One of the best i own actually.
**It did bother me that i have two lights from one manufacturer, BUT, they both do have the nicest tinted emitters of all my lights.. So.... yea.
