I want to use a Stenlight without a helmet, but seem to be having a heck of a time finding a solid headstrap that will take a blade and has a strap over the head. Anyone with suggestions on where to find some different options?

YES. Speleotechnics makes or used to make a headstrap that had a molded blade attachment. One came with my FX Ion 14 Ledlight I bought several years ago. Perhaps you could go to their site and email them about one. It was pretty comfortable but I never used it (still have it somewhere in this house). It also has a strap and buckle in the back that would hold the stenlight battery nicely (no need for duct tape).
Since Speleotechnics are mostly used by European cavers now, most of the good dealers are in the UK. Check Bernie's cave shop, etc, or maybe get on a UK caving forum and ask around. They might sell you one cheap, as most Speleotechnics lights are mounted and the strap is never used.
