    I have not flipped since I was a kid. Im 48 now and want to get back into it. Can anyone recommend a quality Bali for around $300 or less? Looking for something that is immediately available. Thanks. shane

    Hom Rhapsody is the only thing I can think of around that price point that is available right now and has excellent flipping characteristics, but it is a trainer.

    If you are willing to spend a little more for a live blade then the Hom Chimera, which is an excellent bali and flipper, is available now...

    All of Jerry Hom stuff is excellent quality.

    Benchmade 51 is available for less than 300 and some people really like it. I started out on one but could never really get used to the light weight and smaller size. It was just not right for me and there are a lot of people that feel the same. It was not until I got larger balis where I started to actually learn some tricks.

    Unfortunately, you just missed the Replicant drops last week. That would be my first choice around that price.

    Screw it! You convinced me Shawny Boy. I dusted off the cobwebs and I am flipping the 51 as we speak. I even decided to take a picture for this special occasion...
