    Fenix PD20 or NOVATAC Storm??

    I've always been a flashlight guy and have recently decided I need one to carry everywhere-everyday and have decided on the following two options...

    Fenix PD20
    or
    NOVATAC Storm

    I like them both but have no experience with either and cant find them locally to get my hands on one.
    The only problem I have with the storm is the clip. It only allows for bezel up(button down) carry. I want the button to be up when in my pocket.
    The remedy for this with the NOVATACs is to pay about 40.00-50.00 more for an EDC model with a user installed clip.
    The PD20 is already set up the way I want it as far as the clip is concerned.

    Is there any difference in the strobe? Different pattern/frequency?
    NOVATAC states on their site that their lights have a "Disorienting Strobe", but I'm willing to bet 200 lumens of strobe will be plenty disorienting on it's own.

    Opinions?
    Input?

    Thanks guys and sorry if this has been covered but I didn't find this comparison through my search efforts.

    i think both brands are great, but i've had experience with the older fenix models, they good stuff =] take a look at the 4sevens like, they've got a 10 yr warranty.

    I'd stay away form Fenix. I loved mine, until I dropped it 3ft and now it doesn't want to turn on. Junk.


    Surefire from here on out.

    Ive carried a Fenix PD20 for years with no problems at all. Its been dropped many times and keeps on going. The strobe function is disorienting. Ive used all the functions at some point. Hope this helps !
