    Like everyone else has said it's personal preference. I've handled a FlyTanium 51 and own a 47. Might just be me but the tang cups on the 4x are sharp and pinch me pretty good... FlyTanium 51s are more comfortable with the rounded spine and the zen pin construction doesn't pinch at all. FlyTanium is smaller and heavier, thus more compact, but it doesn't affect its performance. I'd say they tie at flipping.

    ***Alternative; buy a Replicant :manganr:
