    It's always cool that makers take interest in what the punters want.... but hasn't DDR been doing this for a while now? Why is he asking for advice on how to build a flipper?

    btw... I agree with everything that c.wigum dude say's :ross:

    I hear that dude is a pretty decent flipper :ross:

    Even though a lot of people don't like DDR, I am really hoping he can pull off a sweet balisong with all this information. If the custom makers can raise the bar for good balisongs, hopefully the big production companies will take note and follow suite.

    The amusing part of the thread is that the majority of the people actually having a converstation (with the exception of Gollnick) are all JD members...

    Thanks for the link, but seriously dude, you don't know the difference between "no" and "know"?! :facepalm:

    I hope English is not your first language.

    I usually try to resist my Grammar Nazi urges but seriously, come on.

    DDR makes fine tools.


    Of course whenever I visit any thread on BF I just see this:

    My presumption would be that if you've already built the "ultimate
    flipping machine" or a balisong that "you can flip like a professional
    right out of the pouch" you'd not need the advice of the flipping
    community to dictate your future or current builds. To the best of my knowledge
    many of his knives since the Raiden have had more of a flippers type of
    marketing and lingo affiliated with it. Now according to that thread
    they are planning to release yet again the ultimate flipper in the
    summer?

    I'm not against any maker or company taking the feedback from the
    community. In fact I commend it. I'm only raising an eyebrow because
    the actions and verbiage surrounding his builds already imply that
    they are out of the box ready for serious flipping yet the pursuit of
    a knife with such specs is currently being sought from the community?
    How can the two statuses co-exist?

    When BRS first suggested the idea and imagery of the Alpha Beast
    everyone wanted reviews, feedback from users, some type of
    reassurance that in fact it was a knife that could flip before even
    considering purchasing it. And rightfully so. Loosey and I NEVER
    once considered even calling it a "good" flipper openly. This is after
    we both handled it and felt it exceeded our expectations in performance.
    Why is that? Because the maker, the designer, the
    company doesn't dictate what is a good flipper or a bad flipper-
    YOU GUYS DO.

    DDR has contributed a ton for the flipping community and has build
    some of the most outstanding knives/balisongs I've ever seen. I
    just kinda feel like all he has to do is be himself to really drive anything
    he does home rather than put himself in a position where he is
    going to take fire from the very community he is trying
    to step into.

    Well, I'm currently exchanging emails with Darrel...or one of his representatives from his shop, but I can't be sure because they are not signing their emails. I'm talking to them about some things I hope to get resolved (getting cut with a closed knife *cough* cough*). The emails are somewhat vague in the same way he danced around answering whether he grinds the blades himself on BF. They are being halfway helpful at least though and I hope they come through in the end. I may hold on a full review until I see how that plays out.

    I will say that there is a lot that is great about the knife, but it is not without it's issues, most of which have been pointed out and discussed at length on the forums.

    That was exactly my thought.

    DDR designed the AA and Twist which are considered to have excellent flipping dynamics. I would have thought that if he's done it before he could do it again.

    Why all of a sudden is he asking for advice on how to make an ultimate flipper. Not that I think their is anything wrong with getting feedback.... but I just get the impression that he has no idea.... especially when he makes comments like "lets start with the latch" ...WTF!!!

    Latch is easiest part to change on the whole shebang...like bringing your car in for a myriad of problems and the dealer says - lets start with this license plate bracket.
