Hey, thanks for the suggestion. They give the option to pay the difference if you want something pricier, which is nice/makes sense. The Sage just doesn't do it for me. I do want something "off the menu" so to speak in Para 3. I'm thinking of steering into the skid and going for the Genzow Hathethawk, adding some $$$ into the bargain. Separate but related, I bought a new purple Lynch Para 3 clip in anticipation of the S35VN Para 3 making it's way back to me so that is nagging at me. 1st world problems, yada yada.... I don't see anything interesting coming out in the planned releases re: Para 3 and that drives me to pick something off the shelf. I'm considering a fully serrated plain jane Para 3 just to do SOMETHING different. Looking at 2nd hand absurdly priced Para 3 sprints also. There's a March end time limit to choose or they'll just send the original Para 3 back and close the service case.
