    Yeah, but when there is shit wrong with it that it shouldn't have left the factory with that they refuse to fix or make right, why the fuck should anyone have to go to someone else to fix something that should have been done right the first time?

    When I had Bonger's Tach2, there isn't a single reason I should have had to go to BHQ to get my shit resolved when MT couldn;t even be bothered to use the right sized screws.

    Real tight ship they're runnin over there, huh? :ropeman::devilroll:


    But hey, I generally like to know when I spend a few hundred dollars on something, simple shit like that isn't fucked up, and that it is, the company who made it doesn't pretty much tell me to fuck off.

    I'm having trouble warming up to the look of that thing. If the Proddies look like that, I'll likely pass.

    Pricing will likely push it to the top of it's segment, especially if MT takes their Quality Assurance Department out of mothballs.

    Not a huuuge fan of the groove in the blade, but the shape and the grind are alright.

    The milled thing on the handles looks a bit out of place, but at least its in a good location for grip. I'd be happier with a simpler design.

    The plainness of the handles is actually OK with me. The shape and simplicity does look taken from the Balzano concept, but I always really liked the look of that concept regardless of the douche that made it.

    The latch better be titanium or else it's worthless for flipping. I hate the imbalance a steel latch adds. As is, son clever milling could possibly even the weight of both handles acceptably.

    EDIT* I can't really tell but from the pictures of the clip, this looks fairly thin. It might be a smaller Bali, or a "gentleman's" balisong kinda like the Protect Flyfather? But we all gave Microtech crap last time for pretty much stealing AB dimensions so at least this might be original.


    Now that that's done, let's see the watered down production and some price estimates!


    ****I will point out that the Tach 2 prototypes and production versions were almost identical...so the production version of this might not be watered down toooo much

    With those blasted "melted" looking channels I wouldn't put it past them to call them integral instead of channels and brand it a balax or something ridiculous.

    Agree.

    Overall, I think it's a great looking bali (besides some minor designs that I'm not a fan of).

    The retractable clip alone makes it an attractive purchase. Want to see how they made it and how secure the design will be. First bali to ever have this?

    In addition, assuming the design stays close to the proto, a good mod job could make this bali look pretty unique.
