I don't fidget and I think the back lock and its derivatives are the best locks. I only have experience with Golden and Taichung made stuff - my three Chaparrals, five Natives and two Chiefs are all perfect. No misalignment or blade play, and are even flickable, even though I prefer (and recommend) the sweep.
Even an S90V Chief that had blade play and was very off center, and which I left in the shop at first, I went back and bought it anyway, because I realized the pivot screw just needed tightening.
So, ten out of ten is a good tally.
