Pros: Overall Quality, Weight, Finish
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, None
I LOVE them!
As a beginner, I can't really tell about the no spin technique. I don't master it yet. But spin throwing them, I just find them great. 3m, 5m and 7m they just behave the way you expect good throwers to and it only took me a couple of attempts at each distance to sink them into the target. Be careful though when blade throwing them. They are not the sharpest blades ever but they do cut flesh and fingers if you don't pay enough attention.The blade itself is designed to deeply penetrate the target. And it really does! (I even accidentally stuck one into a brick wall, hardly blunting the tip).Their weight is good for me as I am not what you could call a hunter. I only throw at home made targets and really enjoy high weight throwers with which I am more accurate. But they are heavy to carry in a bag or, I imagine, on the field. And I can't imagine carrying more than 6.I got two sets at once (without consulting with Wolfman :)) to get a faster muscle memory (throwing series of 6 instead of 3) and they definitely ARE worth the price.I do recommend these to any thrower, beginner or pro alike and will eventually get another set or two at some stage because, and I do agree with Wolfman on this point, when you get such valuable knives, you have to get more to pass them on.And yes, the sheath is ok for storage, but not really handy or durable to be carrying the knives at your belt everywhere.
