Liking this one since it arrived yesterday
Nice combination! I like a modern and a traditional together.
I love my Stretch 2. Have nearly gone for the Straight Spine sprint a couple of times too. I may still, but kinda prefer the drop point.
Enactive, I also prefer the "original", drop point Stretch blade (and here the Stretch 1 over the Stretch 2)
But what I like in the straight spine version of the Stretch 2 over the drop point version of the Stretch 2:
The straight spine Stretch has a shorter choil, but only the BLADE part of the choil is shortened.
This gives you about 0.10" more cutting edge, makes the choil - for me - more "stabilizing"/"finger hugging", places your hand a bit closer to the edge in a regular grip,plus imho looks more harmonic and better proportioned...
Many might think, that this difference is not even worth mentioning, but for me it is a noticeable improvement!
Top three going by pocket-time: Endura 4 in VG 10/Micarta-scales; Stretch 1 in VG 10; Endura 4 in HAP 40
