1) Does the Freehand have any significant advantage over the Flik in terms of the individual implements? Selection, size, etc.)? For example, the drivers on both are probably short so thats no advantage there.
2) Are the following "new" features you previously mentioned in the Flik also in the Freehand?
(a) Slide-the-lock-forward-to raise the tools feature
(b) antipinch feature which comes into play after you separate the handles
(c) anti-rattle plier head
Yes to all three and the little bent pieces at the end of the slide are supposed to hold the head in the closed position and do not work on the Freehand so probable will be the same on the Flik. Ok my Freehand was used full time and the head just slides down the handles when I try to repouch the tool, not very clever whilst on the top of a ladder. I was hoping they would have altered that bit at least.
