    I was a flashlight junkie until earlier this year - Many great lights were under $100, so I picked one up here and there... Cheap enough that my wife didn't give me much hassle...

    But, I recently I sold many off, as they were just sitting on my shelf... I figured one day I'd be stuck with them as new flashlight tech evolved. I think I had over 30. As most were just "collectables," they were in new shape. I sold most of them off one by one.

    I kept my Eagletac lights, though, as they are my favorite for daily carry. I use an Eagletac T20C2 MK II on my carbine as well. I used to be into Inovas, but then I learned about some of the brighter brands.

    Solarforce is a fantastic Surefire clone as well. Built just as well as Surefires, IMHO. I used to have a ton of those. I keep one at work on my desk.

    I have noticed that many of these aftermarket brands are just selling Surefire clones as well, but many are of lesser quality than the Solarforce ones. And, they cost more to boot...

    I did have a Fenix TK70... 2200 lumen light. Just plain awesome. But, VERY bulky. The Jetbeam BC40 puts out 830 actual lumens and is much smaller. I noticed that it did everythinG I'd need - so, I kept it and sold the Fenix. The BCO is pretty cheap, too.

    Always been a bit interested in the Sunwayman.

    I just did a review of an Olight I got last week. Maybe i'll post it here on this forum as well.
