    They just dropped and are already sold out. They were being hammered with traffic and it was almost impossible to access their website.

    I must say, this thing is a pretty awesome flipper. It blows the kraken out of the water.

    It took me a good half hour before this knife "clicked" for me. It's buttery smooth (fast af) and ricochets pretty hard off the tang pins. The only thing I'm not crazy about so far is the sound of it.

    Great finish on the blade. It's like a polished stone washed. Very cool. As far as the sound.... It's loud, as you would expect from a channel bali. I like it. Great fit and finish. It's a unique flipper and flips very well. I like it much more than a kraken. A little more ass heavy so it follows through better. Also, the grip is better. The silicone boot is a neat idea and has a very snug fit.

    A little bit of oil takes care of that.

    This is a badass flipper. The more I flip it the more I like it. I like the weight of a good Ti bali and classify Al balies as 2nd class. The karken is ok... good quality, but it just really never compared to a good quality Ti bali and I never paid that much attention to it. I tried... I've put in some good time with it but it never compared.

    Now the Talisong Z... I can't put it down. First impressions was it was 2nd class, better than the kraken, but 2nd class. However, after a few days of playing with this thing I really like it... I mean really like it. It is fast as shit, has a loud as hell clank, really light, but really well balanced. I'm really getting into a groove with this thing and really like it. Awesome design. There is a squeak out of the box but a little oil takes care of that.

    I came here to say this- Ive actually grown to love this knife. The texture on the handle and especially the texture near the base on the side is perfect. It’s so effortless to choker fan. The smoothed edges on the blade are flawless. Yeah… when enough people have got their hands on this I’ll probably pick up a second one.

    I’m still not psyched about the sound but for now everything else makes it worth it. I’m too nervous to put oil in the bearings because I’ve gummed up too many bearings that way

    Also to be fair my benchmark for sound is the 87 but nothing really comes close

    That's a pretty slick looking bali. Hope they make another run.
