Having used a "Little Ed Recoil" for some time now I can't begin to describe how amazingly bright it is against the halogen lights.
Also from having dealt with directly with Christopher McCorkle at 1445 Designs (the Company that makes the Blackjack) I can say that they are a top notch little company. This is truly a "made for firefighters by firefighters" item.
Disclaimer - I am in no way affiliated with 1445 Designs nor do I stand to profit in any way from the sales of their product.
Also - if you have a Bullard helmet that uses their (IMHO Stupid!!) Blade Mount Technology to attach your goggles or Face Shield, then the blackjack will not work (as intended) with your helmet (ask me how I know )

I am also using a Blackjack with a Streamlight 4AA LED. I love it. In fact several other F.F. has purchased the same set-up. The Blackjack by far is the best mounting system on the market. The only drawback is when you have the change the batteries, it's difficult to do so while the light is in the holder for that the Allen type set-screw is tightened down. I also use a Pelican Big-Ed 4C on my chest.
