Yeah, mode memory is definitely rare, and most you don't have to do a full click to switch modes. In the end though to each their own, I know when looking some found some of my preferences maybe a bit odd. If you're alright with an 18650 battery based light, Eagtac has the d25lc2 which is what I got, but I got the "clicky" version.
Anyways, good luck on your hunt. The reason I suggested the subreddit is it was helpful for me and easier than signing up for a forum account somewhere(already had a reddit account).
