New Surge and old sheath
« on: August 15, 2019, 12:32:56 AM »
I bought my first Surge in late 2005 or early 2006 and have always enjoyed it.  It went back to LM around 2008 for scissor replacement and then went back again last week for the same thing.   

Today's mail revealed a new Surge.  I'm impressed with the updates since 2005.  I still have the original sheath and will get back to horizontal belt carry starting tomorrow (well, actually right now). 

The sheath is floppy and scarred and paint flecked, but it does the job.  Might put my bit kit in the back sleeve and the driver extension in one of the sides, although I might need to do a little stitching to tighten it back up.

LM did a good job with the New Surge.  I also love the look of a well used leather sheath.   :tu:

Having a Charge TTI, OHT, Kick, Rebar and a Surge...I would take the Surge any day.

Charge TTi and Kick are great as well, but the Surge is definitely the more superior multitool in pretty much every way.


Where the charge, Rebar and Kick have felt they were nearing their limits by twisting, the Surge didn’t even break sweat. For instance; if I was trying to tighten / untighten a screw or using the pliers to bend or pull something out.

I never had an older surge, so I cant compare but these newer Surges are tanks. My co-worker has a wave + and he said the surge felt like it was too much.

One day he will be asking to use it.  :multi:

Thank you Wspeed, BadMechanic, MMR, Aloha and Poncho65.   I'd not carried the Surge much at all since school let out, instead using my Wave.  Just a few days of carry reminded me why the Surge is my preferred EDC with the heft and heavier duty tools.  It takes all of about 35 seconds to get used to the weight and with a pocket clip, it can carry it in any pants (except for dress pants which I rarely wear) and for almost all events.

I agree. I kept hearing its heavy, not practical for EDC etc. I can understand their concerns, but for me nonissue. With a good belt, it disappears. I notice the size of it more than the weight. Moreso because of my lovehandles  :rofl:
