I'd get one if it was Cruwear or a Blurple S110v! I'm going to hold off on this one for a sprint :)

I voted K390, but I think my first choice would be CTS-204p, as that has turned out to be my favorite PM2 sprint.

M4 was my first choice and XHP would be a close second.

M4 for a sprint.
S110V for regular production. In blurple please, like the others.

Cru-wear if it was on the list, voted for XHP instead.

I would be very happy with CPM S35VN and tan or brown G10. I voted for CPM S90V.

This!
I've owned knives in all of the above steels and Cruwear is hands down my favorite. I wish Spyderco would make it their new standard in place of S30V for all models.

I think we see the S110V production version before any sprints, and that's a good one. I'd be fine with a lot of different sprint steels. What I'd really love is for Spyderco to be able to afford a complementary production line for the Para 3 with CTS-XHP for the base steel, then CTS-204P for the upgrade (like S30V and S110V). Or, I'd love to see the Para 3 (and the rest of them, TBH) use S35VN on the base model instead of S30V. So I guess I'd be more interested in seeing Spyderco play around with different production steels instead of just sprints.
And I say 204P there over 20CV simply because I'd rather see XHP than S30V, and then the upgrade steel would be from Carpenter as well.

And for a sprint, I'd want to see a larger run of them in one of that family of M390, 204P, or 20CV.

My tastes are not sophisticated enough to quibble over steel variations, but I am one of those that is eager to purchase a Para 3 with Black handle, black Blade, and black screws.

Now that I think about it, it would be nice for its first sprint to be something we've never seen before. New color, new steel.

Assuming we'll get the CPM-S110V Blue G-10 production model down the road, I think the Sprint candidates for steel choice are the same ones as for ParaMilitary2:
  • CPM-D2
  • CPM-S90V
  • CPM-S35VN
  • CPM-M4
  • M390/CTS-204P/CPM-20CV
  • CTS-XHP
  • Elmax
  • CRU-WEAR
  • 52100

Missed the Elmax PM2. Would happily have an Elmax Para3, but, gads, if the sequence is the same as the PM2, the wait will be l-o-n-g.
