I'm looking into a R.A.M. and it looks like there's a SpeedSafe in there when you use the flipper. Even AG Russell described it as using the thumb studs as normal, but you detect a slight assist when using the flipper. Can somebody shed some light on this?

No SpeedSafe, the lock helps pre-load the blade before it flips.

Someone had a pretty good explanation of how it works, I'll try and find the thread (someone will probably beat me to it).

Okay, I can see how that would work with the flipper. So, once you use the flipper, do you need to flick your wrist, or does the blade come all the way out by itself (like the SpeedSafe models)?

I've taken my RAM apart - can assure you no speed safe. Frankly I don't care for flipers and having said that - this is a amazingly smooth fliper.Neat lock and very slim and light - pretty darn good idea!

Thanks for the You Tube link - It clarifies a question I have had since I first handled a RAM.

I was having trouble clarifying whether there was an "assisted opening" feature for customers.

The Link cleared up my confusion on the question.
