Lovely Vistas and Hybrids, guys! :drool:

CeHo, that Hybrid is just awesome. :like:

I'm in! :woohoo:

Waited forever to get one under $200. The listing said it had a "blemish" on the handle, but I took a chance at $150(I hate buying these expensive tools, but I've ran the tank out on cheaper LMs). The blemish was a tiny piece of plastic flash and flicked off with my fingernail. This tool is mint NIB. :)










Now, the impossible task, to search for a Hybrid(I don't care for the Genus though, since it is a fixed head). I'll be patient and hopefully find one for similar money at some point.
Now to build up my little MT savings again. The Vista(along with the BO Center-Drive) drained me.  :ahhh

Many thanks, Poncho! :cheers:

It is hard to believe some of these tools cost as much as they do. I guess even though some collectors are dormant on MT.o, they still seek and pay big for discontinued tools.  :ahhh

Oh man, that is tough for sure. I remember seeing many MTs in the glass cases at WalMart and thinking "I would never buy that." Now that I am trying to become a serious collector, it all seems so crazy. :ahhh

It wasn't long after that, that they started popping up on the bay for $300  :ahhh

Indeed. $300 is an insane amount to spend on an MT. :ahhh

So, after poking around the MT wiki, I found something cool. My tool is a 2006 version with the flat head screw pivot. That was changed soon after, because the pivot had a tendency to self tighten.  :woohoo:

Doubling up on the club entries. Previous entry was the Vista. New entry is the Hybrid.
