It will all depends on the price for me. If the lite Machete comes in way over the price of the Condor Machete then I'll have to go with the Condor because I really don't need a Machete but would like to have one. Same with the Junglas price will dictate if I buy or not. I can't just jump on the band wagon to get them just because their new. With that said they both look to be EXCELLENT pieces.
