Caving and diving - new torch needed

For the last 9 years I've been using a dual beam niterider torch. It's been brilliant bacause I'm both a diver and a (dry) caver, so does me for both (helmet mounted with the pack on a belt for caving, in my evo pocket and hand mounted for diving). As a good Yorkshire lass, I don't like spending money so this is (was) a definite bonus. Sadly, it's now died a death and even my industrial sparky can't fix it, so needs replacing. It looks like niterider are no more so wondering if anyone can suggest a reasonably priced replacement that can be shipped to NZ? Thanks

Underwater Light Dude lights are awesome, I got an LD-26 about 6 months ago and it is brighter than a 35w HID. I know you can get them shipped over to kiwi-land. You might even be able to order the light head by itself even (I think its called the LD-25).

Re: Caving and diving - new torch needed

I'm with the vote for Under Water Light Dude. There is a brand new canister released 2 days ago to dealers....there are some really cool features that will change the market.
