The Stingers are great too. I prefer the SL-20 series though, because I also have a Surefire Nitrolon G2LED on my belt. The Stinger is not really big enough to use as a "tool" but it's too big to be a "handy little" flashlight. To me, when I want more than just the G2, I want it to be something that I can break a window out with or use as an effective weapon. To me the Stinger is just a bit to light for that.
