I ordered from the first batch that was released. Cool to see Squid on BHQ.

Flips great right out of the box. I like the weight and the length. Price is great, too. I usually flip live, so I also like the bump at the base of the "live" edge - if I try to chap on that side, it's a little reminder. The blade has a subtle audible ring every now and then that I quite like. The other trainers I've flipped are CCCs and the BM 62T, which I don't like at all.

Watch your screws and do regular maintenance - I needed to reapply a threadlocker after about two weeks of pretty heavy flipping. Hasn't come loose again since. This shouldn't be new information to a flipper, but if you're just starting out, do yourself a favor and pick up some threadlocker, or check out Squid's site, I think he sells a maintenance kit too. Oh, on that note, check out Squid's Youtube channel, he posts some really good tutorials.

The only thing that took a second to get used to was how square the handles are. This isn't a complaint (the edges are rounded, so it's still quite comfortable), it just took me a minute with certain moves, like Choker fanning.

I carry mine around all over the place.
