My favorite light is quark aa2!!
Every light I have bought from them is my favorite (Quark 123*2, Preon 2, Preon Revo SS, Mini 123, Quark 123*2 Turbo, Quark 123, Quark tactical 123*2, Maelstrom G5, Maelstrom S12). The S12 is a the top of my list though. Great customer service (they repaired a problem with my S12 that I may have accidentally damaged at no charge). Great flashlight company!

You expect the Maelstrom S12 to go nova ..after all, it's big and means business..but.. the cute little Quark Mini AA on 1450 steroids still surprises with its 260 Lumen.
My fave is what I consider to be the ultimate EDC and a great "pocket rocket" a Quark AA2 X head on a AA body running a 14500!!! About 350 +/- lumens, small, lightweight, and can run on standard AA's/eneloops in a pinch (though not on Max mode....) absolutely LOVE this setup!!!!!
Right now I have to say my quark 123^2 HCRI. An awesome low and beautiful tint
Right now this combination: XP-G neutral white head/AA body/turbo flat tailcap/fingergrip running on 14500. Let's see which combination after getting the XP-G low voltage turbo head (or actually the whole AA2 Turbo package from Black Friday Blitz sale)...

* Some beamshots *
Maybe a Quark Regular or Tactical, once I get my hands on one.
My fav Quark is my 'original run' NW Q3 5A Quark 123² T, which is threaded onto an 18650 body ...
It's actually THE nicest, truest NW tint light that I own - and I have several.

My favorite is a toss up between the 4Sevens 123^2 Tactical S2 Version and the 123^2 Turbo X.
Without a doubt it is now the HCRI Preon 2 Satin Ti I acquired which I purchased the Satin Ti Preon 2 body for. I now have an all Satin Ti HCRI Preon 2. I also the another HCRI Preon 2 Satin Ti which I have converted to Preon 1 form but with the black body. Thanks 4Sevens for making these available.
QMini 123 always in my pocket and the Maelstrom s12 places on the car.
My favorite is Qmini 123.

My favourite is currently the AA R5 but I have more 4Sevens lights coming in the mail so we will see.
My favorite is the quark AA. Probably the light I reach for more than any other right now.
Preon 1 with clicky tail
Got some new lights so I have to update my favorite 47's lights. I'll just put them in order of how I like them
1. High CRI Preon 2 - Love the Preon 2 UI and the tint on this light is my favorite. I think I would like any of their High CRI lights.
2. WW MiNi 123 (2010 version) - Love the size and weight of this little guy. And the beam is prefect and tint is very nice
3. NW Quark X 123^2 - nice floody beam and the tint works great for outdoor use. This is my camping/hiking light. And the weight is also nice, not too heavy.
4. MiNi AA^2 R5 (dont own anymore) - this had a nice beam and ok tint. What I really liked about it was the size. It wasnt too slim but just slim enough, I didnt really feel it in my pocket. And it's very lightweight for a 2x AA light. Perfect for edc.
5. Quark Turbo X - this thing is a beast but too heavy and bulky for extended carry. I do like the beam and the tint is ok. Not a fan of the tactical UI but it will work great for what I got it for. A weapon light for my .22 rifle
That's like asking someone: Which child is your favorite? Oh, I enjoy them equally. But everybody knows it's the "baby."
My "Babies" are the High CRI Quark MiNi AA, and the Quark 123² Turbo "X". All things considered, they're a hard combination to beat.
There's not always a light at the end of the tunnel, so you had better bring your own.
I'm new to the quality flashlight world. Until about a month ago I would have thought that Maglites were about the best on the market. After a few weeks of research I bought a Fenix PD32 for my dad and brother but bought a Quark X 123^2 Tactical and a Quark MiniX 123 for myself and after comparing the 4Sevens products to the Fenix I couldn't be happier. Don't get me wrong the Fenix are great lights as well but the Quark Tactical is a little bit smaller and feels sturdier and just all around a little nicer. So to answer the question (finally) I would have to say that for now my favorite is the Quark X 123^2 Tactical. It goes in my backpack with me everywhere I go and I keep the Mini in the pocket attached to my keys.
I gave up trying to figure that one out awhile ago. Heck...just load the pockets with flashlights and call it good.
123^2 NW XML with regular UI.
Got it, a 17670, and the 4Sevens charger for Christmas today and it's an awesome light. I must have won the tint lottery, because it's a nice vanilla white at max, and ever so slightly yellow on the lowest levels, but goes unnoticed in actual use. Tint shift is part of owning a variable output light IMO, and I can't complain at all. Much brighter than the XPE AA it replaced.

My Ti CR2 is a great keychain light
I'm fairly new to the high quality flashlight world, but I love my 4Sevens lights.
I have a Preon 2 and a Quark X 123^2 NW. I like both of them equally .
New fav is mini aa hi cri
Quark 123^2 turbo "X"
My favorite 4sevens light may be changing...
Previously, it was the Quark MiNi AA nw running on a 3.0V CRAA from Battery Junction.
However, I just got an SS Preon ReVO. The only draw-backs are the weight (about the same as the QM-AA) and tint (I prefer neutral tints), but otherwise it may usurp the QM-AA as my back-up light.
