    Absolutely, the build quality etc etc is second to none, they do usually come with a price, I really should use my TK-40 more

    I used the LD20 for many years, that's 180 lumens at max and I'd say worth the cost (c£50). I had a faulty tail cap switch on one which was annoying but believe that was a one off problem, the first one that I lost down a sewer was faultless.

    I've got a TK75 now that's my standard walkabout torch, hasn't let me down yet. It's pricey but at 2600 lumens max it's more power than you'd need and lasts for ages at low power output.

    The TK35 looks a good lumen output, and a nice compact size.
    ive got an ultrafire and a trustfire, theyve got a high lumen output, but, I will admit theyre not always reliable

    I use the Fenix LD-20 as my main torch and I can't fault it. Build quality is great and has a better grade of anodising (more durable) than some other manufacturers.
