    flipping action is out of this world, but thinking it might have to go in favour of the real thing...

    I can tell ya that the Hinderer will not flip anyway near as smooth, thinner profile and m390 its hard to beat. The Hinderer does feel a little more chunky in the hand which I am partial to but I'm still not sure if it's worth 2-3x the money.

    Yeah, it's the Fluted Titanium Native 5 in s35vn. Absolutely superb in every way, I love it.

    I hear that. Can't keep my eyes off the Hinderer site now.

    For the most part I agree with your points.

    I went with g10/elmax version because I am finding the I do not care much for the ZT CF. It looks very good, but is not as grippy as I would like, and the knives with it do not feel as solid and because of this I much prefer my Aluminum handled 0770 over my CF variant. If they did a G10/M390 version then that might be just the ticket, but even then I don't think it would be a keeper for me.

    I am fortunate enough to be able to make direct comparisons

    So yeah, the ZT flips far easier than the Hinderer due to the ball bearings, but both have very smooth actions. I like that the thumb studs on the Hinderer can be used to open the knife too, unlike the blade stops that look like studs on ZT. The lightness and thinness of the ZT work against it IMHO, feels like the whole handle is flexing when I open and close it, and lacks the solid, built like a tank feeling the Hinderer has. And the ZT clip sucks, such a good knife and went lame on the clip.

    And the ZT is just missing, uhhh, something. not sure what it is, and I cannot put it into words, but it just feels like it is lacking.

    Again, don't get me wrong, the 0562 is a very good knife and one that will make most owners of it most happy. Just don't think it is the knife for me.

    I will be Hinderer'ing again. Next will be an XM18 3.5" skinner, and maybe a slicer, of course they just announced they will be doing a production run of clip point Bowies. But there are also times I would have liked a smaller knife, so probably a 3" slicer at some point.

    Argh, yeah, I got an expensive 'problem'
