    I've got the Phenix PD 30. Its 22O and has a strobe. I think it was 60 bucks.

    Its small enough to keep in the pocket but it's bright and it works as well as many flashlights that are much bigger.

    I keep it with me at all times when on patrol.

    Another vote for the Fenix PD 30.

    I've got my eye on this one but have not picked it up yet:

    UltraFire WF-501B Cree XPE-WCR5 5-Mode 320-Lumen Memory LED Flashlight with Strap (1*18650/2*16340) [E45609] : BestOfferBuy.com, Buy DVD, Shop for PC accessories, Discount MP3 Players, Bargain Deal for Surveillance Equipment, Cheap R4 for NDS, X-sim

    It's less than $17, free shipping, and born in China. So it will probably poop out in a few years but it's super cheap.

    Quark AA, 205 lumens.
    Olight M20S, 320 lumens.
    EagleTac T20C2 MKII, 300 lumens.

    All strobe. The Olight and EagleTac are actually about the same brighness. Don't always trust the manufacture's stats. At this time I carry all three, until I can decide and knock it down to two.

    Fenix TA-21 here. Multiple strobe modes + "glass" breakers built into either end...

    It all depends on what you mean by strobe. I have a Gander Mountain 220 lumen light that will flash SOS. I think the SOS part is at a lower power than the full 220 lumen main light feature. Cost $39.99 and it also has tactical features similar to the Surefire E2D, but they are not as nice. The scalloping on the bezel is not as deep, the lens is not as thick and the back end has no tactical scalloping. That having been said, you can get 4 from Gander Mtn. for the price of 1 Surefire.

    I gave this one to my wife because the light works great and is absolutely blinding and she won't take the time to learn how to use the tactical features of the Surefire anyway. She will flash the light in someone's eyes and start shouting - its a start

    I also use a 5.11 light for life, a TLR-1s, and Fenix TK40 from time to time that strobe.

    I've started carrying a Nightcore Extreme R2. It's 220 lumens, with a strobe mode activated by quickly twisting and then re-tightening the bezel. Not the easiest way to activate, but once on, it's extremely disorienting, and anyone on the recieving end will not want to look directly at it for more than an instant.

    I usually carry it in strobe mode. It's easy to switch back to normal or dim it for utility uses.

    Is this hard to understand? Then why does it get unintelligible to some people when 5 little words are changed?

    Streamlight's new PT 2L is 180 lumens with strobe. Tailswitch controls mode. LA Police Gear sells it for $49.99.
