    I *love* my sidekick, its on me daily even when I have a bigger light.

    I'm hoping the Stiletto Pro leads to a great non-Pro black friday deal!

    Two initial thoughts:
    1. “Wow - costs twice as much ($230 vs $110) as the old Stiletto to go from 650-1000 lumens.”
    2. Remembering the discernible, but not dramatic difference between the original Stiletto’s medium (250 lm) and high (supposedly 650 lm), wondering how much brighter the new 1000 lm will actually seem.

    Not sure I have a case of the “wants” for this. But I’d be interested to compare them side-by-side and see if there was a significant difference. It would take a lot to justify twice the price, though.
    I want it mainly because you can reverse the clip now and carry it bezel down— but I don’t want it enough to pay $230. I’ll wait for Black Friday or a coupon code.

    Looks like the body buttons on the Pro are recessed, or at least less prominent than the standard. That should help with the accidental activation, will see if it's enough.

    No mention of a lockout feature in the lit so far.

    I sent an email off to surefire CS. Anyone else experience this? I can't find anything in the manual or googling.
    Did Surefire ever get back to you on this. Mine is doing the same thing.

    I like the current one enough to get the Pro. The reversible clip should not only lead to fewer accidental activations, but also mitigate the ones that slip through.

    I sent it back. I think they sent me a new one. Light works fine now.

    The low should be lower. Weird it went from 5 to 25 for the low

    Well, after watching this I decided to go ahead and order one.

    I'm pretty happy with my EDCL1-T, but would really like something slimmer in my pocket and have been wanting a rechargeable option anyways. I've thought about getting the standard model a few times, but Ihave waited for the pro mostly for the reversible clip.

    It can be hard to tell from videos, but I like the way the beam looks. I would have probably preferred a 5 lumen low mode with longer battery life also, but since its rechargeable I'm willing to see how it works out.

    Do we have any clue how bright the flashlight mode on typical smart phones are? I'd make a completely uneducated guess it's something like 5-10 lumens. ASSuming that's true, having a brighter option task light appeals to me personally.

    YMMV.
