Deadwood Huckleberry Topo Flashlight Review

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!

Oveready Lava P60 with XP-L HI 371d and Optic DIP 219c Drop in Flashlight Review

Here’s one of those random reviews of a light (and items) that I purchase myself, and am  completely free to say what I want.  (That’s a joke; I say what I want about all items I review, no matter how I get them.)  This is a light I’ve eyeballed for ages, but never ponied up the money for.  I had a failed purchase through another site, so I decided to use that money for this light.  It’s the Oveready Lava P60 host.  I paired it with two drop ins; a 371d p60 triple drop in, and an Oveready DIP 8-mode 219c drop in.  I’m excited to have this light, and glad to put forth this review!
