    For the experts ;)

    There are several "batches" (5?) of this knife.
    Do you know if they are all the same or if there are differences?
    Wich ones have (had) the CSBS (Carson Sealed Bearing System) because I believe it's now replaced.

    1 - Original Carson Boiling Flipper
    2 - Real Steel Megalodon
    3 - 3rd anniversary Boiling Flipper
    4 - Current Carson Boiling Flipper
    5 - Real Steel 2017 Megalodon

    I believe at least 1-4 all do, as soon as someone disassembles the updated 2017 model we will see. But since it's so simple to implement (it's just a caged bearing two pieces of hardened stainless steel around it) I have a hard time imagining they would eschew it.

    I have the new Megalodon its on needle bearings like the s571 the action is outstanding feels like a knife five times the cost.
