High End Flashlights

I'm curious as to what high end flashlights you guys use. I have been happy with my Streamlight Twin Task units. Sells for about $33, probably considered a mid-price unit.

0.9A high pressure adjustable focus xenon bulb provides 72 lumens
3 ultra-bright, 100,000-hour-life green LEDs deliver 10 lumens

Re: High End Flashlights

Well never mend then. I will keep on bothering them

You question is a good one. I got trapped by a thunderstorm one afternoon this season five miles up a canyon on the Manti and had to walk out in the rain and dark on a trail that sidehilled 20 to 30 foot drops and one bad step would have been very hurtfull. One cheap flashlight keep flickering off, one regular bulb flashlight burned up the batteries and the LED head lamp batteries began wearing low.

Better quality flashlights is an item on my "gear improvement" list.

Re: High End Flashlights

The purpose of this thread is to gain insight into a line of flashlights to add to the LRH Gear Shop. Not everyone wants to pay for the best so I will probably offer a pretty darn good one and also one that is much better than that.

Re: High End Flashlights

I dont know your criteria for the site but I have 2 of the new Surefire LED's and they are pretty darn nice. They of course have much more run time than the bulbed units and twice the lumens to boot. Headlamps are nice but really need a third strap that would go over the top of your head to really keep them in place.

Re: High End Flashlights

Len,
Great idea, more useful and important stuff for the LRH Gear Shop.
I know you look at every thread in the page, but anyway these two threads have been informative for me in this matter:
http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...hunting-25029/
Flashlight for multiple day backpack hunt???

Watchmaker seems to know a lot about flashlights. He is probably somebody that can give you a good advice on what models are the most useful for us.
Hope this helps.
Take care and happy new year!!!
