Only own two, but I love them both:
1. EDCF MoonGlow sprint
2. PE regular production model

Such awesome knives.

I owned a CTS-XHP manix which got me into spydercos...

currently it will probably be my S90V Paramilitary 2, The Tan M4 manix that I have preordered...and Either my CF sage or delica g10.

I would say that I flip flop between the delica, the sage and the para the most. I wonder how the manix will fit into the picture.

I currently only have two, so here is my rating, in order of preference:

1. S30V Orangey Sprint
2. Moonglow Sprint

Two more on pre-order and not yet in-hand:

3. Tan M4 Sprint
4. Translucent Blue Lightweight

I suppose that I should just go ahead and order the regular 154CM version, too, right?

1. S90V/CF
2. M4/Tan
3. B75P/Black
4. XHP/Foliage Green
I'll have 3 of the 4, I also have the Blue S30V, really like the blue color, but S30V is so common thats why it didn't make the top four, I'd say its #5 though.

The first is original (black G10) C95, very distant second is Stag Arms M2. No third place yet.

1. 154CM
2. S90V
3. Blue

For me the second and third are great collector knives. I enjoy using the 154CM all the time. I had but sold the C95. Fantastic knife, just too big for me.

1. S90V, for the steel
2. M4, for the steel (assuming it performs like the M4 Military and GB)
3. four-way tie among blue, orange and GITD S30V and the foliage green XHP, based on essentially equivalent performance and equally good looking (to me) scales

FWIW, that's based on owning at least one copy of every sprint and also production versions, missing only the Stag Arms limited.
