As I read Don's cryptic response to my original post on CPF (see link above)...  I think Don consulted OMS's supplier/designer of this light.  I just ordered one this week, along w/ OMS's headlamp/wrist mount/BCD mount light.  I need more underwater toys for next month's diving trip in Cozumel!

I gotta say... the Draco gets more use than most of my lights... and it's smaller than all of 'em too.

I was lucky enough to get one of 5 AlTiN's that Modamag first made...



Tough as nails, and bright as hell. :)

And the design of this thing... man...

Oooooo... that one looks NICE! 

Aluminum has a "soft" quality to it that Ti can't match.  Knurling tends to work out better on it as well.



The TiCN/Ti  is one of the five sterile unobtainiums built with a Cree :)

The personalized TiN/Ti on the right came "fully loaded", with extension and turbohead (not pictured).

All in all, great design.  High-quality, simple, small, tough, bright... The DRACO gets my vote!

Cheers,

Yeah... I couldn't resist picking up a couple of TIBLOCs, even though I'll probably never use them (so what).

For someone that cut their teeth on Jumars, the simplicity and sheer elegance of this design is just AMAZING. 
No moving parts!  It's one of those things where you just look at it and say "wow, how'd it do that?"

Sort of like a card trick.

A couple of nights ago I got to see and try out a Draco first hand, for the first time (thanks Schiez!!!). What a light! Great output from what looks like a piece of jewelry. This is definitely on my "must have" list now...

- Draco (perhaps Ti)
- Ti PD
- Original Orb
- Another milky KL2 M- light (mebbe x600 - gotta one-up arewethereyetdad)

Troy is such a bad influence ;) :evil4:

I haven't seen the tibloc yet, and I do a little climbing now and then. Hmmm. Looks like I'll have to pick one up to try it out.

A few favorites from milkyspit, McGizmo, Surefire, MR Bulk and others

Here at Flashlight-Forums we put the "FUN" in "DYSFUNCTIONAL."®

... that's a little more than I do these days. 

I've read that the TIBLOCs have a tendency to shred the casing if used carelessly, and I can see how that might easily happen.

So be careful, and always use protection!

Reg, why does that look like an AlTiN on your keychain, and not TiCN?? I'm one of 5 that have the one I posted a pic above - V1 Draco AlTiN with Cree... are you another?

Nice polishing cloth, Selvyt.  :laughing7:

Chronos, I can't believe you've got that wimpy little Draco higher on the wish list than the Ti PD!  :violent1:

And I see I have more competition in the Milky division than just EMack.  :D  Bring the heat!  Oh, and what about Carpe's Porsche light?
