    Understood, just for a while orders and dings for payment were happening within days of each other, which is either good or bad depending on your finances at the time.:rolleyes:

    Yeah. I actually miss the long lead times that we had during the first O2W run.

    It's pretty great. Not to get ahead of myself, but I think I picked my colors for the TGULB and when it comes in I'll post a pic of all three together. I somehow resisted the Forsaken, but I would be kicking myself if I missed this one. Just when you think something can't be improved!

    Also, does anyone have an idea what standard canvas scales would weigh for the TG?

    Anyone know how durable hammered silver is compared to the black coating. I was able to resist the other brigades but dont think I can pass on this one

    If these somehow stay on the website as long as those FFG Infimandu's did, half of this forum will be broke for the rest of the year lol.

    Just a guess, but I'd say ~1-1.5oz. If the average canvas micarta TGLB weighs ~16oz (based on a few search results, they vary) and the TGULB is ~20% lighter, you get 12.8oz. Then Jerry said without scales the proto was 11.8oz.

    Weighed my coated DS8 and it came in right at 12.6oz, which is interesting. The TGULB should have better weight distribution though. :)

    Definitely getting canvas micarta. Probably maroon, but the black sometimes calls me.
    It probably depends on whether I go BIG DC, or decide to absorb the extra $30 to get CF.
    Thinking if it is CF, then maroon. If BIG DC, then black. Or maroon..... :rolleyes:

    I'm getting pretty excited about this one. Just weighed my BGTG and my REK'ed TGLB and they were 18.6 oz and 15.2 oz. The REK'ed TGLB feels much lighter than the BGTG so if the TGULB is another 3 oz lighter it's going to feel amazing.

    Soooo excited for this.

    My OGTG weighs in at 20oz and my TGLB weighs in at 16oz. If the TGULB gets even close to 12oz!! it would be an incredible feat of engineering.

    again soooo excited!

    I have been a fan of the TGLB for quite some time now. I initially bought there and ended up selling two off. I didn't realize the one I sold that was tanker grey and blue/black G-10 was about 3oz. lighter than the black with orange/black G-10 i kept. I regretted selling it due to the lighter weight and "slicer" blade profile from being a bit thinner. I bought the Flak Jack due to the thin blade profile to fill the void left from selling the TGLB. Now that the TGULB is coming I am stoked. This is what I've been waiting for :)

    I think I'll be in for a CF with Black canvas. I don't foresee splurging on the G-10. Although, I would like the black & blue handles.

    In for sure...Competition Finish, of course :cool:.

    Thanks a million for rolling CF back into the lineup Jerry! :thumbsup::D:thumbsup:

    But this time I'm gonna switch things up a little and forgo my usual black or maroon canvas handles and go with some green canvas Micarta :) ...

    The Team Gemini models always remind me of iconic WWII American gear, so IMHO some OD will compliment that theme :thumbsup: ...

    I wish they could bring back tigerhide micarta, to me it's the most beautiful micarta handle especially when hand finished

    I am torn between Green Canvas (Included) and Green/Black G-10 +$80.00. Does anyone have a comparison picture of both?
