    I really love my HS-802 sku.16538
    Almost no spill, very narrow beam

    I can vouch for the HS-802; I don't own one but I've ordered a couple for others and it is a very good thrower. My biggest complaint is the low mode on the switch. Since it's already a dedicated long-range light, I don't see the need for low.

    I've thought about using my DX points to get one for myself to see if it's a good candidate for modding with a single-mode switch...

    It uses a small square 3-position switch (basically sku.5604) on a circular PCB. All three pins are on the same side, with input connecting to the outer ring, one output connecting directly to the spring and the other passing through a resistor to it, providing the low mode.

    Replacing the switch with a 2-position is just a matter of wiring up one pin to the outer ring and another to the resistor-less spring contact. The PCB has a pair of pass-through contacts on the other side of the switch for the outer contact ring, so it's possible to use a replacement switch that has input and output pins on opposite sides.
