I know that this is a really old review thread, but I just got one of these from shiningbeam.com, and at least initially, I’m finding it very nice. I have several AAA twisties, including a ITP A3 EOS (upgraded) and an Illumina Ti, which are much smaller, but I really like having a clicky switch on a AAA light, which is what this HypeTac has.
Also, I like that it turns on in medium mode instead of high or low. A good compromise IMO.
Besides the clicky, the stainless steel light really “caught my eye”. It’s actually pretty nice aesthetically, and not just a plain shiny tube, but the grooves on the head and tail end give it a kind of “designer” look.
Finally, re. the clip: I don’t wear pens or lights in my shirt or pants pockets, but I ordered a lobster claw from shiningbeam.com at the same time, I put the split ring on the clip, and will wear it like that on a belt loop. I also do the same when I’m carrying the ITP and Illumina Ti (but not all at the same time :)!)…
Thanks for the review and pics.
P.S. Has anyone tried this light with a 10440 yet?
