    I'd rather pay the $295 for the Stealth w/ extension.

    It's only $30 more. It's a finish that is more durable than ANY other out there. Proof?

    I've carried this flashlight on my keys for over a year. It is vapor deposition coated(nearly the same process as ZenKote. ZenKote is better). It has been subjected to keys, coins, knives, Provari's, drops on concrete. It's is still nearly perfect. Look at the difference between that and the other light that is Type III Hard anodized. Which is harder than the current ProVari Cerakote.



    When the manufacturer of the light told me it was a tough finish, i highly doubted it. Most gold plated finished have terrible durability. This one, this process, made me a believer.

    When I first found out ZenKote was the same process. I was excited that one day I'd have PV with this durable finish and it's HERE!

    Gold might not be your thing but ZenKote itself IS WORTH IT.

    How do you figure? $30 more than cerakote? Satin silver w/red LED & extension cap = $177

    That's $53 more for ZenKote, at least in my book..

    Fully aware of ZenKote's properties..

    Also fully aware of what it costs to coat these things

    At $230 (additional $53), one would hope that other more-costly colors like gun-metal & sapphire will soon be available, i.e., gold is "subsidizing" the other ZenKotes... I've noticed ProVape sometimes has a history of putting out the "lesser" items out 1st (like how they trickle out certain color combos in Clearance).. Hopefully they're doing the same with these, as well
