    My name is Scott… And I am a flashaholic. Please count me in for one also. One question, will it have a “last mode memory” switch, or will you need to cycle through to get to the one you want.

      Don’t know, but last mode memory are usually on lights that cost a hell of a lot more.

    I was interested at 80, but when you said 60, I was interesteder.

    It will have a last memory as long as the light was on in that mode for at least 3 seconds. If you only have it on for 1 second it will move to the next mode.

    When on, a half click will move to the next mode as well. These should be in Dec 31st but we’ll see if they survive the gun show. on Jan 5/6.

    More details to come once they arrive.

  9. Michael's Gravatar Michael

    My wife accuses me of the flashlight fetish, along with the knife fetish, she understands the gun fetish just not the knife and light ones. I would love to have one also, what is the site to pre-order. I hate to see all those gun show people getting all the good stuff. Unfortunately I am a $1000 plane ticket from the nearest gun show, or gun store so that cuts hard into my budget.

    • 12/29/2012    

      Steve doesn’t have a Pre-Order set up just yet. However, if you are going to be at the Gun Show in SLC, Utah coming up… Steve is going to be there with a bunch of them.

      • Michael's Gravatar Michael

        I am in Bristol Bay, AK so I will not make it to the show in SLC. But I would like to get on of the Flashlights.

  13. Erik's Gravatar Erik

    I want one!

  14. Kevin's Gravatar Kevin

    i would but up for at least one also.

    I’m glad everyone is interested. I’m 90% setup. Just waiting for the lights to arrive.

    For some of the answers to the above, the lights are manufactured and assembled in China. The order of modes on te light goes High, Medium, Low, Strobe, SOS and then repeats. If you have the light on any mode for more than 3 seconds, it will remember that mode and use that mode the next time you turn it on.

    For Orders, please visit and place an order. Payment is through PayPal. Shipping will be through USPS at a flat rate of $5.35.

    If you order 1 light use coupon code WTA10. If you order 2 lights you can get a slightly better discount by using code WTA25. This puts the lights at $55 and $52.50 respectively plus shipping.

    I plan to carry the same light in a single mode but I’m not sure yet when those will arrive.

    Hopefully the website will work correctly.

      Thanks Steve, and you also Ogre. Light ordered, site worked great.

      • Michael's Gravatar Michael

        Just saw that I am order #2. Come on guys this is a great deal. I paid more for less features and less light, in a similar size package.

        • 01/01/2013    

          Thanks for the order mike. I will get it out on Wednesday.

  16. 12/30/2012    

    One more thing, I’m running a special on CR123 batteries. If you buy 4 sets I will include a 5th set for free.

  17. Michael's Gravatar Michael

    Got a call and email from Steve today my light is on its way. Who else is getting one?
