I have been thinking about getting a couple new flash lights. Curious what brnad you use and price. Really interested in the LED lights. I have a couple but more curious than anything.

I generally don't use one in the woods, but I carry one at work and have been using a "Coast LED Lenser" you get at Lowes.5 bluish leds and 1 red..Its about the size of a roll of quarters and believe me is really holding up well to daily use....

The Streamlight Propolymer Luxeon lights are good. I have a 4aa size that probably gets more use at home than any other light. I use rechargeable aa batts and it works great. http://www.fox-intl.com/searchresult.asp?id=3034

There are MUCH brighter LED lights if you don't mind spending more $$. The Pelican 7060 is almost too bright but it's in the $100 range. http://www.fox-intl.com/searchresult.asp?id=3692

The Fenix lights are neat designs and small and bright but they're kinda pricey too. http://www.flashlightreviews.com/reviews/fenix_l1dce-l2dce.htm

Battery Junction sells lots of import Cree LED based lights: http://batteryjunction.com/creestore.html I have the Lumapower M1 that they sell and run it on an 18650 rechargeable battery. http://www.flashlightreviews.com/reviews/lumapower_m1.htm

There are literally hundreds of great LED flashights out there these days and new ones popping up all the time. For current info, check out the candlepower forums

I use the Spot headlamp made by Black Diamond. It runs off 3 AAA's and is the brightest little booger I've used, although you it does have different brightness modes. This thing even has a 3 year warranty. It's a little pricey at $60 and I was hesitant on the purchase, but a buddy of mine who is a hardcore backpacker assured me that it was the absolute best in headlamps and I'm very glad that I purchased this thing.

I don't know but there may be a better use for our hunting dollars than a high priced flash light.
