I have come to prefer m/a MTs over the years although when I first discovered the brand I was obsessed with OTFs and hard firing out the side models...but it was the details of the m/a models operation that made me a devoted fan...detents,smoothness of operation, lockup, centering, lack of blade play....these can be ascribed to autos but with an auto ya hit the button and it's over...the joy of critiquing a folding knife is drawn out with a m/a...more subtle details to appreciate...imo of course....I know most of us own a few of the many types of knives Microtech offer but do you have a preference?

I have no experience with the many microtechs out there save my one OTF, however, to give a broad spectrum answer, I really like flippers the most even if the they may not be as fast as an auto. A flipper on bearings seems higher quality to me.

I prefer a side opening automatic like the LUDT for daily carry / use.  [thumb]  If I'm carrying a manual opening knife, it's probably sporting a Chris Reeve logo.
