Update 6: Fine-tuning the balance

Update 6: Fine-tuning the balance

Reddit post

Hey folks, another quick update on the Zipper prototyping process for those who have been following along.

I'm currently working on fine-tuning the balance of the trainer with different bias options. My goal is to have user-customizable balance options ranging from slight blade bias to neutral to some handle bias by mixing and matching weights set inside the base of each handle.

My next goals are finalizing the blade design using the internal weighting system, and slimming down the hardware for a sleeker look, two changes specifically requested by the r/balisong community. More on those later...
