This is a very well done knife. I was concerned about the ergos; but, they are spot on for my hand. The blade fly's out with little effort due to the detent being well dialed in. This is my first front flipper and I was able to rocket the blade out on my second try.

Pros:
-Near perfect fit and finish(no machine marks, great centering, even blade grind, came sharp and smooth action)
-Great ergos. No hot spots detected and comfortable in hand. However, this is in MY hand. YMMV
-Very decent value for the designer, M390, titanium frame and milled clip.

Cons:
-If your hands are even a little larger than mine, expect this to be a three finger knife.

what you will pay for what you will get is a deal of a life time on a knife. The handle of this knife feels and sits great in my hand its very sharp and the 2.8 inch blade is more then up for any task i have for it. IMO its the best made and looking front flipper you going to get for 200 bucks. Its a blast to fidget with.
