    $39 for a Titanium Manix bearing cage doesn't sound bad.

    This was in an email they sent out a few days ago. I have a silver ti due to deliver Monday. I do have a slight concern with long term use though, Ti against steel could equal galling. Not sure if it will be an issue here though.

    I wish they sold them with a ceramic ball.

    Ceramic BBs for the Manix are easy to purchase and fairly cheap.

    You can buy them on line.

    3/16ths is what you need.

    Got mine this morning, fit & finish is well done, no issues putting it in, only perceptible difference to me is the Ti is slightly grippier. Not unhappy with it, I kind of expected very little difference in the movement. More or less a solution to a problem that didn't exist, definitely cooler then the black plastic, $40 cooler, that is probably the best question to ask yourself!

    So I got my two titanium cages in. They feel really good. The jumping is more aggressive than the stock one. I also noticed they are both a little gritty but I suspect this will smooth out. It almost feels like it’s the ball is turning inside the cage while it closes that causes the gritty feel. Over all I am happy with they way they look and feel.

    My M4 Manix2 has the clear plastic one. I know Spyderco will replace it if there's a problem; but I might grab one of these.

    Got mine this morning, well made and i was interested in how they did the spring pin .
    Mine is going in the box as a backup. If and when the stock one brakes . Then i will switch it out and i hope that is never !
