RovyVon A29 Brass Flashlight Review

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.

BilletSpin Polished and Flamed Titanium Whistle Review

My next item from Billetspin is not a top!  It’s a whistle.  This is a newish market for Billetspin, but they have a bunch of products in the category.  They’re very pretty pieces, but also functional whistles!  Read on for more.

BilletSpin “The Vanguard” Top Review

BilletSpin has released a new top.  It’s named “The Vanguard” and they were kind enough to send one my way.  It’s gorgeous, too – a 3-color Mokume / Flamed Titanium top, with a Ruby sphere atop the stem.  Truly a stunning top.

Along with the Soul Pen BilletSpin sent a while back, they graciously sent this Xeno bronze and stainless top.  I have had tops before – the Lambda from Dark Sucks, for example, so I’m glad to have a look at this one!

Malkoff M61L P60 Dropin with Cree XP-G2 (CW) Review

After my Surefire G2 review, I talked to Gene Malkoff about sending some LED replacements.  He agreed and sent the M61L, which is suited for the nitrolon body of the Surefire.  He also threw in the package the big brother of the M61L, the M61, which is similar aside from the “L” – where “L” stands for “low output.”

Banggood asked if there was anything I’d like to review.  I have been interested to see what Rey has done with the newer Pineapples, and so they sent the Pineapple Update.  I reviewed the original Pineapple.  I liked the original Pineapple!  Let’s see how this one’s improved!

Venom Orion Flashlight Review

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!

Lumintop IYP365 Pen Flashlight Review

What I have today is another Lumintop, in a long line of Lumintop reviews.  This is one I’ve been excited about, because it’s Nichia and brass.  Unfortunately, Lumintop didn’t want to send brass or titanium, but I’m not going to hold that against them. 🙂  Here’s the Lumintop IYP365 in aluminum, with a Nichia emitter.

Maratac PCL Brass Keychain Flashlight Review

Everyone probably knows by now I enjoy brass lights.  All kinds, all sizes…. I recently acquired the Maratac PCL in Brass.  I don’t like these as keychain lights, but they’re fun lights to keep around.  They call it the Personal Carry Light, and here are my thoughts!

Lumintop Tool AAA, Aluminum, Copper, Brass, and Titanium Combo Review

In truth I’m probably the last flashlight person on Earth without a Lumintop Tool AAA.  But there are some variations I’ve gained interest in, and they’re also a an inexpensive way to get Nichia 219b emitters.  GearBest was kind enough to send three out for review.  After getting those three I liked them enough to purchase the Brass version for myself!

Lumintop Ant Brass Flashlight Review

I continue to have interest in brass lights.  I never had the original Lumintop Tool (the tailswitch was unappealing to me).  But I asked GearBest and received the brass version of the Ant, which is a side switch tool (basically).  Read on!
