I do not remember seeing this being discussed. Did we vote on the best MT for 2019?

The LM Free P2 or P4 get my vote, but they’re the only ones from 2019 that I own.  I love them though and have been carrying them for months now.

I know this is an oddball, but I'm throwing in the Ozark Trail Multiforce for Budget MT of the year.  I added some magnets to the 1/4inch driver and extension and it has been a really surprisingly good tool.

I can't remember any others that came out in 2019. Maybe some off-brands, but who cares. There's plenty of big name stuff already in the list.
Unless we've missed any tools? :think:

My vote is for the P4 :salute: it was actually something completely different to what LM already had. It resembles some of the other separate tools but conveyed how you deployed them completely differently and created a completely different tool :cheers:

My vote would go to the Roxon Storm S801S.
It is packed with tools, the quality is impressive, it looks great, and it has loads of improvements over the old Storm:

-Blade steel was upgraded from 3cr13 to 5cr15Mov
-Blade increased from 1.8mm to 2.2mm thickness.
-Scissors steel was also upgraded from 3cr13 to 5cr15Mov
-Saw changed shape, and now has a liner-lock.
-Hook disgorger/pry thingy was replaced by a reamer.

-Can opener is at the proper position to hook onto can, and is sharpened.
-File is more aggressive.
-Glass-breaker has a tiny rubber cover.
-Pliers have Roxon logo.

-Sheath can now also be carried horizontally.
-Sheath now has a snap button.

They have gone above and beyond as far as off-brand tools go. The original Storm was already a nice tool, but with all those updates, it is even better. Definitely the best budget MT of 2019 in my eyes. An underdog for sure, but it definitely deserves praise. I'll do a 30 Day Off-brand challenge with it this year. :cheers:

Does the LM Charge + with the new G10 scales count?

It probably does... :think:
And if it does, it will probably win. :pok:
