Cons: Weight, Lock Type
Not Impressed For $$$
I love Benchmade I have an old PCC 3" blade, 42, 46, 41SS, Morpho 51, Morpho 32, Bradley Mayhem. While this trainer is far far better than others I have tried for $30 or so. I was very disappointed. But I'm a fan of the 42 so they've gone backwards in my opinion. The balisong is heavy, which is to be expected with steel, but my 41SS is steel and I feel it flips better. Stays on my finger a better for chaplins/rollovers. Just feels smoother and a little better balanced. Oh and just to mention if someone is coming from 4x, the handles aren't channeled, which doesn't bother me, but again made me question $$$ The latch is annoying, the latch on the 4x were really nice, and I love the latch on the Morpho 51, best latch by far I've come across. I was really annoyed for over $200 the latch was just a standard T with no spring. Basically I think its worth $100-$150. But I end up just taping my blades with electrical tape, while my trainer sits in the drawer. Everyone once in a while I enjoy flipping a heavier BM but I normally go to my 41SS.
