I bought a preowned Ball Fireman II - absolutely love it. The build quality is fantastic and you never get tired of that lume :thumbsup: .
This is the same as mine, the black/red combo.
I do think some of the models are a bit 'over complicated/fussy' in their design but there's lots of variety so shouldn't be too hard to find something that appeals. Are you looking at anything specific?

Nice, but why does 'Rainbow Connection' play in my head every time I see one? :rofl:

So ever since the LE came and gone...Ive been thinking about the Alpinist. Since im not willing to pay for a 3x mark up, what do you guys think about the Green? The numnerals...its raised...I assume its not gold.

Also whats the best deal you guys have seen?

Thanks much

It's been out of production for a while, hence why I bought a preowned one. I think it was the cheapest model when new, so prices are good for preowned if you can find a good one. They came in various 2-tone combinations but I always thought the black/red was the nicest so grabbed one when I found it up for sale on WUS. That photo is from WatchTalkForums when it was reviewed by the owner, but there are probably plenty of reviews out there. It was a good way for me to get some of that lovely tritium lume without the price of the more expensive models (I have a Luminox Black Ops as well, but the Ball is a much better quality build, and an auto)

I like the Luminox as well and they appear on Trademe, will keep an eye (or 2) open for the Ball, especially like the colour combination you have. Thanks for the info. :D :D
