Yes, I've finally gotten around to doing another video review. :whistle:  Not my best effort, but I manage to get my points across I think. :-\

Cheers Mike. :)  Now that I'm settled in my new place the plan is to try and do these a little more frequently.

It's always so helpful to see the tool in hands and next to "known" tools.  Nicely done.

7 years I've been resisting your poking about getting a Farmer, I'm not going to give in any time soon. :D

Great Review :salute:

Concerning those stoppers keeping the Flick from being Mr. Pinchy 2.0 I have one question:
In light of this thread how much wider do the handles open when compared to the MP-600.
It wouldn't be the internet without people complaining.

Cheers buddy.  The short answer to your question is; wider than a MP600, though not so wide as a Wave.  If I get the chance later on I'll take a picture to  show you. :)

Now, with the same sized opening (the Clipper again) the Flik vs MP600 and the Flik vs Wave.  I have to say I thought the difference between the Wave and the Flik would be more.  You can feel it, just.

Thanks a lot, it appears that the Flick is very close to the Wave here, while the MP-600 is significantly less open.

Wave in Red
MP-600 in Green
The overlay is of course not that accurate.
Of course your latest post makes my overlay redundant :cry:

Yeah, but the coloured lines are much cooler. 8)  Looks pretty accurate as well.
