    An absolute beauty of a question.....all these guys have some very good points.....one thing that is a huge consideration, especially for someone that is just going to use it on a recreational dive is budget. Lights can go anywhere from $50 to several thousand dollars. Think about what you want to spend, then go from there. I would say it would be no problems to get a great recreational light with a good beam and a good burn time for under $100.

    Bang for your buck, i would get the penetrater from piranha. I also like hollis LED lights, I have the LED 5 i believe and really like it.

    Something like the Dorcy (Penetrator) or Intova is a great light to start with for many recreational divers. They offer a plenty of useful light, are affordable, reliable, reasonably sized, and are perfect for "backup lights" if you decide to get into technical diving at some point.

    Well thanks for the suggestions folks! I have purchased the Dorcy so we will see how it works out. No cave diving for a while so I think it should be fine. I dont plan on using it with my camera as I already have dual strobes on it....

    I looked at the specs for a couple of socks but the 2 that I looked at were just a little bit bigger in diameter than that of the Dorcy...so I will have to settle for the lanyard and clip for now.

    Again, all the info is greatly appreciated...It sure does help being new to the sport and being able to get this type of information!
    .....just happy to be here....
