    Hey!

    I collect a few things, so collecting isn't new to me. I collect watches, pens, and just started a gun collection. I bought an extremely shitty trainer balisong from amazon just to see if it was for me. After learning some basic moves and behind the eight ball, I absolutely fell in love with everything about it, especially the culture. So thank you for having me, I very much appreciate the resource.

    As a side note... after practicing for a few hours, I've noticed that this trainer is obviously not going to cut it (no pun intended). The blade seems like it "lags" behind the handle when I flip. Should I just pull the trigger and get an Alpha Beast? Will it make practicing easier? And is there an after market clip I can buy for the Alpha Beast or perhaps one I can buy from BRS? Thanks so much, I know this is likely a common question.

    Thanks again.

    If you can afford it, yes. It will help immensely and also teach you to respect a live blade.

    Welcome!

    Yeah as others have said a live blade is much better. Especially with the respect part for a live blade. If you're practicing correctly and carefully you shouldn't end up with too much blood loss lol.

    Yeah you can't go wrong with brs, they're very comfy flippers. As for anything bear and sons, bear ops, etc. Personally most of my experience with them is comparable to your first car; falls apart but keeps on trucking. They make for really good beater knives if while you're learning you have a tendency to drop it and maybe the occasional tip chipping
    But if you do genuinely enjoy the hobby investing in something higher end will be very rewarding.
    Best of luck to ya and post pics!:welcome4:

    Welcome to the mighty JD!!!!! If I could go back in time and get my FIRST balisong all over again I would buy a beater replicant. Just my two cents. There is certainly nothing wrong with an AB. You may be able to find a used rep for around $250 maybe less now that they just dropped a bunch. You absolutely cannot beat that knife for the money.

    I have been surfing this part of the forum in the last 24 hours, and can safely say I will follow your advise and post a wanted ad!
    That's quite the knife and is very tempting. Especially for the price. I really appreciate the advise sir.
