I believe Fenix to be a good name, but ive never heard of any of the others.

One of the guys on my team has a couple Fenix lights. He likes them, and I liked them enough that I just ordered one for myself. I've typically been a SureFire (SF) guy, but those have been bought for me...

My only gripe with the Fenix is the "reverse" clickie tailcap. The light doesn't come on until you release the fully depressed tailcap. So: press -> click -> release -> light. Totally different from the SF design in which the light activates before the switch is even fully depressed (press -> light), then stays on through the click and release. I believe the SF design is better for gross motor manipulation and defensive situations. I just got the Fenix for GP use... it is not replacing any of my SFs.

Good luck!

I ended up getting a surefire p6 with the malkoff M60 dropin. hope this turns out well. Now my only problem is finding batteries around here, I guess I'm gonna have to order those to.

Got the surefire 6p, dropped the malkoff m60 into it, and I was not very impressed, until i shined the light in my eyes, its been an hour and I still see spots. after comparing to some other lights I can see the difference.

now just waiting on my stinger led ds.

The fenix I had was OK, and tons of people swear by them, but I wasn't impressed with it. You can't beat a surefire for a quality light IMHO.
