    No experience with the select, but I carry a Nebo Redline #5557. Haven't had any complaints with it.

    Nebo Redline. I have one. Still working just fine.

    I bought one for my little Brother and my Nephew and they still have them.

    I have 2. Great little lights. They work well and throw plenty of light. For $32 you should get AT LEAST one.

    I am a little late on tbis thread, ordered two Nebo flashlights last week.
    I have been carrying CSI Edge 90, it was 12.00 and I think it is as bright as my big Mag Lite,
    Ordered a Blueline for my Wife to put in her purse and the Redline SE for me.
    Hope it's not too uncomfortable all day in pocket

    well i got this shortly after i posted the last time. the light i must say is awesome. on flood i can light up and entire room easily. also if i take it outside it will light up most of the backyard. zoom it in and its like daylight in that area. i usually keep it on flood since the area it covers is so giant. i took it down with me this past weekend when i went to west virginia visiting family, and it was awesome. had nightvision to spot animals and then i would light em up with my flashlight so others could see. definitely and awesome flashlight and well worth it.

    for me it is a little too bulky for all day pocket carry, but im used to a tiny streamlight microstream. i carried in my pocket when walking around at night down in WV just because of how much it lit up and you never know what critters are around there. cargo pocket carry will probably be a better carry spot for you for all day carry. hope you like yours when you get it, i love mine.

    Just FYI Slightly off topic but, flashlight related.

    For those of you that own an old turned Aluminum MAGLITE (since a member brought up Maglite) I have one that uses 5 "D" Cell batteries.
    You can buy a CREE replacement bulb and get rid of those old style flashlight bulbs.

    It puts out 140 Lumens and does not burn out at the worst possible time like the old flashlight bulbs did.

    $16.00 and Free Shipping on Ebay.

    The new CREE replacement bulb made it possible for me to take my trusty old anemic bean-cracker lite out of mothballs and I now keep it in the vehicle.

    Awesome! I have always disliked the yellow light of the maglight compared to my fenix, but for home and vehicle use I prefer the "bean cracker" ability of the venerable Mag light

    Just got my Redline,you are right, OK for cargo pocket,way too big for EDC in jeans. Nice light though, will keep in car or on nightstand.

    I carry the NEBO blueline in my pocket everyday. I have been carrying them for a few years now and use it daily. I would guess Im on my 3-4th of daily use but at $15-$20 each Im pleased. I think the size is perfect.
