First Sprint Run for the Para 3 ?

Postby Northglenn500 » Fri Jan 06, 2017 3:02 pm

Since the Para 3's are hitting the shelves, and everyone seems pretty happy with them, I thought it'd be fun to see what you guys think should be the first Sprint Run. I only picked 9 steels, and I'm sure I left out someone's favorite, but I tried to pick some interesting ones. What do you guys think?

Picked M4 but think think we'd be better of with several Sprints/Exclusives in M4 in a same period so there might be enough around for people to buy them and actually use them, shame to have M4 and not use it..

Would also love 52100 and CPM D2, first one of the family was a CPM D2 PM. :)

I'd be happy to see the DLC coated versions or S110V ones as well. Hell I'd be very happy to see my Para pre-order getting shipped! :)

As his bigger brother the PM2 ik would be nice to see a CF S90V Sprint first to continue the tradition :)

I voted for M4 but I already have a few knives with that steel. So I'd prefer to see a sprint in the M390/204P/20CV class since I haven't tried any of those yet.

I would have voted Maxamet...but I'd take 52100 without having voted for it.

I'd be surprised to see a sprint before we see what the production variants are. Digi camo? Blurple? Black DLC? Etc.

Easy, Cruwear. Why isn't it on the list?

M4, cruwear, maxamet.
An updated digi camo in blue or snow theme would be cool.

I can't believe I didn't think of Cruwear either. My Cruwear PM2 is absolutely perfect so I would have very high expectations for the Para 3 version.

Cruwear is my pick. Love how sticky-sharp it gets.

I think I won't buy the regular version but S90V & CF could make me think twice.

I'd go for Cruwear if it was on the list. I selected 10V instead.

Yep, none of the listed, Cruwear for me too....would have said s90v....but it's probably already going to get s110v . Maxamet, but that wasn't there either.

I think in time, just like the Military, ParaMilitary2, Native5 and Manix2, we will probably see a regular production model of Para3 in S110V and Blue G-10.
