    It's been a few years since the UV flashight craze and I'm suddenly in the market. Which one you got? How has it held up? AA or triple AAA preferred unless there's a better alternative. Waterproof/submersible is a huge plus. Shoot!

    UV flashlights maybe good for lighting up glow in the dark jigs but what they’re marketed for tends to be detecting disgusting stains. I’ve never used mine in the bunk room but maybe I should... or maybe not! They are good at energizing jigs!

    You might take that uv flashlight on a trip and it could be your last. Some bunks are sketchy.
    Might need to pin an ad with bunk reports like bait reports...

    Len FWIW I got the cheapest one and it lights up a flatfall in a few seconds better than standing in front of a deck light for a week would do.
