Since I started writing reviews back around 2015, I’ve wanted to include watches on my site. Specifically G-Shocks, since that’s what I’m most interested in currently. Many of my collection (50+) are used, so I don’t find it “fair” to review those (or even post photos in the manner seen here). But this one is different. It’s special in many ways, and I bought it brand new. So I know it’s provenance and what’s happened to it since. Truly this post is much more of a “look at this gorgeous watch” since I don’t plan to test many of the features of the watch. But mainly, does it live up to the hype. That I can answer!
A spinner review! And a spinner on a Fun Fund Friday? Yep. Maybe I’m back into spinners, I’m not sure yet. Probably not but you can read on to see why. 😀
It’s not often that a single emitter (with reflector) light comes available in what we’ll generically call the “custom” market, but when Grant Spitz of Deadwood Custom Works announced the aluminum version of his popular Huckleberry he threw out the option of a 219b single. I jumped on that. This is a “full review” but at the same time there are some caveats, due to H17f and programming and… I’ll get into that later. Read on!
I reviewed and enjoyed the FocusWorks Eryx, and Jordy makes many other fidgety things. I got interested in this spinner, so I purchased this Axis Micro Mini, and thought I’d throw out some photos and thoughts on it.
Another RovyVon! This time it’s the brass version, and one I bought for myself. That’s a testament to the other two from this series I’ve reviewed – the A23 and A28 – I liked them enough to put my own money into a version. The A29, brass of course.
A Fun Fund Friday review of a light you all probably already own and have moved past… The Lumintop FW3C – yes another FW review! My copy of this light has been in my possession for a while now, so shipped with an early version of Andúril, and the review might not be the most relevant any more.
My Fun Fund Friday review for today is of a light I couldn’t not own. It’s an orange coated ReyLight called the Gemini. Now, this particular copy that I purchased myself, is from the secondary market, and the UI has been swapped entirely for something custom. So I’m mainly showing my evaluation of the physical light itself and I’ll probably also comment some on the UI, which is ToyKeeper’s Crescendo. Hope that type post interests you, and please read on!
Breaking out a standard classic for today’s post-Thanksgiving Fun Fund Friday review. It’s a twisty 10180 light by the well known Steve Ku of Veleno Designs. This is my second of these, and despite being available for years, they’re still being sold today!
This is the Wuben TO50R, which started on BLF as “The Flashlight.” It claimed at the time 2500 lumens (bumped to 2800 now), high CRI, on-board charging, a cell included, and can be used as a powerbank, too.
I recently snagged this venerable classic by Surefire. My second Surefire…. This is the Surefire Titan Plus, a coated brass LED light in AAA twisty format. Read on for thoughts and testing!
I’m a flashlight guy, no secret, but any time I have a light on my person, I also have a knife. But I’m not a typical knife guy – I strongly prefer really small knives. It’s a never ending quest. I saw this little guy and knew I had to have it. This Nite Ize DoohicKey knife isn’t the perfect knife for me, but it’s the one that I’ve carried for months now.

Another Friday! Another Fun Fund Friday! Today I have in my hands a light I bought for myself…. Nostalgia, new emitters,… plenty of reasons. But ultimately it came down to someone (u/tebeve, on reddit) lending me his copy of this light, and me realizing I really wanted to have one of my own. This is a MagLite Micromag, which has been modified by kyfishguy on BLF. The mods are extensive! Read on to see about them, and this light.
For the longest time I’ve wanted to try the Dragon driver. Out of all the lights I’ve ever had, I’ve never managed to snag one that came with a Dragon driver. But I did recently get the MechForce MechTorch host, so I went and purchased a Dragon driver with the intention of installing it myself, into this host. You can see from yesterday’s post that this was successful, so now I have a flashlight with a Dragon driver, for testing! Read on for more!
I’ve had the BLF GT for quite some time (it’s my oldest “review” piece, purchased way back in 2017). But I think this light is interesting enough that it bears having a look! I hope you don’t already know all you need to know about this >2000m thrower, and that this post will be interesting. Read on!
BLF has conspired yet again to design a light that it’s impossible to not want. This time it’s a tiny AAA light, made by Sofirn, with a Yuji emitter, and very high CRI. The single mode is very low output, but with very long runtimes, and two temperatures available. It’s also very inexpensive!
A long time ago, in a land far far away, emitters were expensive, and modding was hard and unusual. And sites with modding supplies were rare!
Back then, there were P60 light. Buy a host, buy one or many drop-ins, and boom, tons of options! P60 lights were an easy way to try different emitters or modes or whatever, without actual modification.
They still are! Though modding is possibly more common now, and certainly easier (due to tons of helpful videos etc), P60 is still around and available. So that’s what I’m reviewing today! Some of the most common P60 hosts, and one of their available drop-ins.
I was lucky enough a while back to get in on a Sinner drop directly from Sinner himself. So this light came to me directly from United Arab Emirates. I was excited to snag it, but you don’t have to get these that way. There is at least one site that drops these lights on occasion. This is my review of the Sinner 18350 Ready-Made Titanium Flashlight.
I have a penchant for snagging things I don’t need, which meet the criteria for things I like. I like brass triples. This light by VenomDD wasn’t even on my radar, but I found a great price on a copy, so I snagged it. (Thanks for pointing me to it, u/emarkd!)
Yes, this is another triple. Another brass triple. Does it cut the mustard? Read on to find out!
