    So I just won 700$ at the casino and I think I'd like a new knife. Obviously I can't spend all of the money on me but roughly 300$ can go towards sharp things. Anyway, I really like the look of the T2 but it doesn't have a spring latch (correct?) and the BM63 does (right?). Opinions? I could really go either way but obviously this knife will be for flipping.

    Neither has a spring latch, and block spacers are coming soon for the tachyon II. I'd go for it :thumbsup:

    ... Or add a little more onto that 300 and get an alpha beast :manganr:

    Dude for flipping I'd think most will say t2 given those two choices.

    The BM63 is an awesome looking knife, but it is pretty heavy and has short handles. It would make a nice EDC, but it isn't a great flipper.

    The Tach 2 is one of the best flippers available, but since it is mad money anyway why not step up to an Alpha Beast? It will be easier to save for the cheaper Tach 2 later.

    to OP,

    i just started flipping in dec. and the knife i bought was the 63, i love the thing but really it is not what i would call a flipper im glad to have it and will prob never sell it cuz it was my first ( quality ) balisong but no more then 2 weeks after buying it i got myself on the preorder list at bladehq for a tach2.
    if your looking for a flipper and your picking between those 2 take the tach2.

    but like other have said the AB is awesome also but it is 100 bucks more but i believe you will be more then happy with the tach2 or AB.

    have fun flippin

    I'd go with the AB, I haven't flipped one yet, but after my simple yet annoying problems with my Tach 2 and hearing that someone else had great experience dealing with an issue with their AB, the AB seems like the best in every category...except the price is a little higher....but yet again, like you said, it was free money. So roll the dice with the AB, it won't be a hard 8.

    Seriously, snag an AB! The thing is a rollover machine! I personally haven't flipped the Tach 2, from what I read from others, the AB is better. I'm still going to snag a Tach 2 though!

    Word.

    The AB is better.. the T2 starts to feel rickety after a while, sold mine already.

    Leaning toward the T2 at this point. Not a huge fan of the look of the blade on the AB and I don't really want to go over 300$ for now. I could be persuaded on that I suppose but I would kind of like to keep it below 300$. Thank you all for your help

    have you seen the roll pin used to hold the latch, makes the bali
    look cheap .... made in China cheap

    Spend the extra 100 and go for the AB. If for anything, piece of mind
    if anything goes wrong with a AB, BRS will see you right.

    For flipping, T2 all the way, given your specific criteria.
    Even thought neither are the BEST, I would have both
    for different reasons.
