Name your favorite sprint run series

Postby Spydergirl88 » Sat Aug 01, 2020 10:12 pm

My favorite is the Rex45 burnt orange series.
Nice color and nicer steel.
What say you?

I mean. Salt series because Lc200n. I also really like the shade of blue frn on the k390-and v-toku2 sprints.
I require more lc200n and thinner grinds

My opinion is not much worth here, since I never started to get into the "sprint run game" and so have very little experience in that arena.

I currently own only two knives of one sprint series and love them both: Endura 4 and Stretch 1 in HAP 40 (burnt orange scales).
Top three going by pocket-time: Endura 4 in VG 10/Micarta-scales; Stretch 1 in VG 10; Endura 4 in HAP 40

Yeah I have 3 knives in the Rex45 series, and I love them all, but I think my favorite, of which I only have one and hope to get more, is the Super Blue series from Seki.

Cruwear and Rex45.
Rex45 for the steel and the costs.

I'm wondering where the M390, Cruwear, and S90V Enduras are.

Just not feeling the love for a zome, glow in the dark, DLC, VG-10 Endura.

How many Sprint runs have they done and what year did it all start? Also, what is more limited and rare, dealer exclusives or sprints?

The SB series out of Seki. It is one of my favorite steels in a variety of platforms.

The Cruwear/Micarta is a beautiful combo. I also wouldn't mind seeing more peel ply carbon fiber and 52100.

I loved the Aogami Superblue series the best,but this K390 run stands a chance to usurp the podium in my mind.

Edit: the HAP40s were a great series I just wish I had tried more examples.

S90V and CF for sure! I do love the Grey and K390, like in the Urban, and wish Spyderco would do more like it.

The Kopa series will always have a special place in my heart..
After that i'd say the Super Blues and HAP 40's

There are not many series of Sprints I am wild about, for some reason, but there are individual knife Sprints that I like quite a lot.

Hard to argue against the Rex45 series, I also like the Vtoku2 series as well. Love that shade of blue and it's a fun steel to use and develop a patina at the laminate line.

Definitely the hap40 series from Seki, and now the rex45 series from Golden. I actually like the laminate lines on the hap40, and I've had great experiences sharpening hap40. I think the burnt orange color is slightly nicer on the seki models, but I'm super pleased with rex45, and the rex45 Manix 2 is one of my all-around favorite spydercos. I do regret missing the super blue seki models, though, and y'all know I've always coveted the caly 3 hap40 sprint run.
