    So. I can flip my boker trainer pretty well, when I switch to my AB I have trouble getting it to do what I want. Both weigh the same boker is a smaller knife, I think it seems easier cause that weight in the boker is more in the handles then the AB. Rollers are so smooth with the boker but seems u like I have to put alot more effort to get the AB to come around. Thoughts?

    And on that note, seems like your the forum asshole. From your threads and replies you a negative person with major issues. And why I won't be returning to this site. I come in as a new guy asking for help and you come in with a asshole reply. Dueces, get your shit fixed, nobody likes you pleb.

    Lighten up Francis. I put a laughing emoji at the end of my sentence because I was joking.

    I don't have any experience with Boker balisongs myself so I can't say for sure.

    AB has bias toward the ends of the handles so it tends to carry momentum without much effort. Fiddle around with it a bit and find the center of balance.

    A lot of newer flippers tend to generate power from their elbows and move their arms around a lot but you really only need your wrists most of the time. For practice I'd recommend resting your elbow on something and only moving your wrist. Small movements mean smoother flipping.

    There's also the possibility that your pivots might not be properly tuned. AB have bushings and can typically be tightened down all the way onto them but every now and then they arent properly sized or fitted and you end up with some blade freeze. Try holding it in the closed position and letting each handle drop to see if it swings freely then do the same from the open position. If it doesn't, you may need to disassemble and clean it or adjust the pivots.

    Also welcome to JD homie.

    Hahahahaha I like this guy. He did his research before making the correct assumption that Buddha is an asshole.

    Don't have a boker trainer but have a boker live blade. It is soooo ass heavy that rollovers and chaplins are like cheating. I suspect it is the same with the trainer. It is going to suck big time for everything else. Practice, practice, practice with the AB and in the end you will be glad you did. The AB is one of the best flippers out there.

    Lighten up Francis:bwah:. The guy was having a hard time transitioning from a Boker TRAINER to an AB. Of course he's going to be sensitive to any negative comment. You might as well have told a feminist to cook you a meal.

    I'm disappointed that you actually made an attempt to tell him you were joking.


    ***You've gotten soft hahaha.
