Great little accent and weight mod!
they rock, its that simple, i get the spacers to protect the ends of the handles and they work flawlessly, Zippys parts always give you so much more customization over weight balance then stock would also!
The zippy inserts help with the heavy handle bias of the arctic and makes it more neutral. The installation process is easy and with all the colors available you can really customize the look of the balisong. I would recommend these to anyone with an arctic.
Going into my purchase, I was reasonably skeptical, as I am very much so a novice flipper. I've had a Vulp for a good while, and prior to purchase, I was slightly worried that the plastic would make for a strange or uncomfortable feel.
I was so wrong.
The Cycloid HD not only looks amazing, it feels amazing.
After the growing pains of learning to use a lighter balisong, I've come to really appreciate how thoroughly well made this product is. The weight distribution is fantastic out of the gate, and even if it isn't to your liking, it's easily changeable due to the great weight system Zippy has implemented.
I have very little money I can splash on flipping, but dang am I ever glad I picked this up.
I would highly recommend it to anyone even considering one.
Quite happy with those inserts, I wanted them to blend in as much as possible with the blade, so I asked Zippy and he recommended I go with grey. It ended up blending in pretty well, obviously you can still tell that the inserts are here, but the grey color matches the steel really well and it makes it less noticeable especially when flipping. Super easy to install, overall great product.
Great product, inlays are super easy to install, went for holos which looks amazing especially when the light hits them in different angles. Note that it changes the sound of the Bali quite a bit, by making it less ringy. Overall pretty happy with the product, feels really good in hand when flipping and adds an extra flavor to the the looks 🤩
OMG! These inserts, ball weights & endcaps elevated the already good Vulp performance, with slightly more satisfying mass. This weighs 4.13 oz. Total now! ‘Loved how you can color coordinate the cushioned end caps, with the blade inserts!
Get these for sure!
Got the black holo finish and it looks sick. The inlay and plugs were easy to install, the channel inlays were a bit tricky. Gives it a great sound with no ring.
Got the metallic grey with the holo finish to go with the zirblast finish on my ZZYZX and it looks great. Easy to fit and takes away the ring giving it a great clacky sound.
Just got another HD with the new holographics in pink and I wish you all could see it in person. I'm stoked to have another addition to my collection of zippy gear. He's a legendary maker creating legendary flippers. I can now say from experience that these trainers are better than any metal trainer on the market. Dont be fooled thinking plastic trainers won't flip well because the versatile weight adjustment and indestructible build quality on the cycloid will be the greatest training aid you can buy. My first HD has been dropped from a moving car window and subsequently run over (sorry David) and can't even see a mark.i havent even had to tighten the pivots! Plus You can take these anywhere due to the non metal blade. His efforts truly show in his products. And his passion for the community deserves more praise than I can explain. Please try out one of his products.
What else is there to say? Perfect product to save your handles, super fast shipping, and an easy guy to deal with if you have any questions. I have the slim or weighted on every knife I own. Way better than a bite handle indicator, might as well have something that can balance your knife, if you need to, and protect it.
These inserts are amazing! They completely fix ringing and improve the feel. I would definitely recommend purchasing!
Say goodbye to threadlocker...
The original balisongs that run bearings on dual grooved-washers. Smooth, controlled flipping with unrivaled axial stability...All without the need for threadlocker.
Zippy's are made from the engineering thermoplastics Glass-Filled Nylon Polyamide 12 (PA12) and Acrylonitrile styrene acrylate (ASA), enabling them to handle the rigors of flipping with ease.
