    Sounds like a great alternative to the Kraken. I could never really see the appeal in the Talisong FL personally, which seems to be what the Z is based off of, but good to hear it’s a quality flipper at a great price. Can’t have enough of those.

    Now the Talisong Pro is another story. Would love to see Eldon try to get a production version along those lines out at some point.

    since i just crawled out from the sewer system, i’ll necro post this bitch

    i bought one on their second drop

    the squeaking was enough for most to do a quick sale. i took it apart and got all the oil out so it is completely dry.

    it is as silent as night


    i dont mind bearings at all so

    i was hoping this would be a real good one but the blade needs more. YUP NEEDS MORE BLADE

    it flips ok and is fun but that blade could use more spine. they should have given it 1/2” more spine material rather than swedge

    not sure who the 12 disciples are but if their opinion is what produced this product i’m going to forget them completely starting NOW

    perhaps

    i wouldn’t know

    and here is why

    i don’t pay attention to the bali ‘community’

    a recent example that sums that current community up

    on IG a few months back i saw that matt cook posted pictures of one of his newer balis and someone by the name of ‘modernbalisong’ commented “i dare you to make a light balisong”. got some likes but seemed like a retarded/childish post to me considering, so i called them out. they admitted to being 17 years old and not legal to own an actual real balisong, they “owned a few trainers”.

    so ‘modernbalisong’ actualy owns zero balisongs

    that is a metaphor

    get it?

    I was a bit disappointed at first but the more I flipped it the more I liked it. I gave it a chance. It was a slow process but the more I played with it the more it grew on me. I like it a lot more than the kraken.

    You didn't need to take it apart to get rid of the squeak. One drop of oil does the trick.

    Thanks for revising this thread. I haven't pulled it out of the safe for some time but your post prompted me to just now. Yes, it is still a great, unique flipper for the price.

    i tried several oils of different viscosities but they all squeaked

    i run the bitch dry

    and don’t get me wrong it is in my pocket right now and has about an hour flip time today ;)

    just a bit more blade and it would be my perfect

    I do see your point that it could use a bit more weight on the blade. However, I quickly got used to the way it is.

    Stock 51, yes, Flyti 51... not sure. Both are good flippers but different.

    One drop of benchmade bluelube and several minutes of working it in did it for me. No squeak at all. However, the factory squeak was annoying as hell.
