    I think this is why they are not selling as fasts as some of the other sprints. I was kind of expecting more talk about it but I guess it's to big for a lot of people. Fortunately I like big folders. I see there are a few on ebay for sale at some pretty steep prices. I'd be surprised if they get half of what they're asking.

    Eh, some people are impatient and want one now however. KW sent the first 100 out and believe already said that they don't know when the next shipment is coming, and they hope before Christmas. So if you are just now preordering one from KW, who knows when you are actually going to receive it.

    Clip position is what keeps me from carrying mine. I love the design otherwise

    You know I have never been a fan of pocket clips. I just slip them in the pocket. Some knives I take clip them off. To me they feel much better in the hand without the clip.

    No worries. My preorder was prepaid in full so I figure I'll eventually get mine at a reasonable price. Plus I only ordered one although you're allowed two per person. More to go around for those who want one for keeps.

    Nah, just so much of it sticking out of the pocket where it is. I wish they put it right to the butt (past the lanyard hole). I've tried deep carry clips as a replacement but don't like the added thickness. Just not for me I guess :(

    I installed a theoriginalspaceman lowrider Ti clip and it made a big difference. Carries much better now.
    Almost retired the XL due to the stock clip.

    I might send my Manix XL to STR so he can make a clip right to the butt (past the lanyard hole). I had a production Manix XL that I installed a STR clip made for a Para 2 and it helped.I would like to get a clip made that goes right to the butt.I think the knife sticks out a little to far with the standard clip.I really like the Manix XL just wish spyderco offered a deep carry option as that is my preference.

    I wish they'd put the clip up at the top corner like the Manix2. They chose to skeletonize that area instead. Oh well.

    I'd just rather have the regular size

    Im surprised these haven't sold out already given the popularity of past S90V / CF sprints. For what you get, it seems like a great deal to me. But then I do like the big ones. :D

    I was really tempted for a while, but it's just too big for me to EDC, especially with that ridiculous clip position.

    I was surprised how well it fit in my pocket. The curve above the lanyard hole lets your hand slide into your pocket easily.

    I need to smooth out some of the jimping on the thumb ramp though or it'll shred my pockets going in.

    I'm on the fence about the Manix2 XL Sprint. It's a pretty big knife (and wide). So I'm not sure how much of an adjustment it would be to carry this thing. But ffg S90V and CF make it difficult to resist.

    I wish the Yo2 S90V/CF was available now. But I believe it won't be out until late 2014 :(

    Mine were shipped and are inbound as of today.I am in the second 50 batch.I wonder how many are accounted for of 800 total that will be produced?
    I just saw the post in the Exchange that says they are 1/2 sold out as of today.
