As the proud owner of two new Blinky 7's, I must say that I am amazed at how bright they are. When compared to my old modified 5 LED Blinky (~50,000 mcd), the Blinky 7 totally overwhelms it in all directions. IIRC, the older Cateye TL-LD1000 was around 50,000 mcd, and it was certainly no slouch.
SO, does anyone have comparisons between/among the Superflash (which is brighter than even the Blinky 7, albeit the superflash is highly directional from what I hear), the Blinky 7, and the TL-LD1100? What about mcd ratings of the Planet Bike lights? If the Planet Bike lights are really that much better than the Cateye, then I see Cateye being in trouble since they also cost more.
