    Agreed.

    I gotta disagree. In the very specific use case of "carrying for self defense but not legally allowed to carry an auto" they have some utility. That's a pretty rare use case, admittedly. Most of us, myself included, don't carry for self defense.

    The outline looks intriguing. No flipper tab.

    I wonder if they will give more clues until it debuts?

    I would love a new emerson collaboration.
    I love the ergos of the emerson designs.
    Should the fit and finish and chisel grind be right, my collection will have been full of emrsons....
    Only have a ZT0630 for now, a non-wave version would be a good companion.

    I like the washers and the lack of a flipper. Right now the only thing im not into is the yellow cf. I dont really like the colored cf but i think yellow might be the worst. Hopefully i am wrong. Maybe if it is an emerson collab it will get a large ti bolster to break it up.

    Meh, don't care for thumb disk openers. Oh well, more money for Spydies.

    I vote Emerson also, yet another "Emerson" done better than the actual brand...

    As far as the yellow CF, that falls into the "just because you can does not mean you should" file.

    I enjoy my Emerson sheepdog at the moment. I’ll give it a chance and check it out. Unfortunately if it’s what I think it’s going to be.... it will be a pass. I’ll wait to see it.

    It would be nice to see some innovation with a new lock type. Maybe another G&G Hawk collab. Not holding my breath though, as innovation and ZT seem to be antithetical lately.

    A Hawk collab would be so cool. But I’ll hold judgment till I see what it actually is.

    CF scales will be replaced if I get one. Not because they're yellow but because I don't like CF at all. This also looks like a variation of a Firetac to me. They don't seem to do much with Emerson these days on the ZT side so maybe it is. But the Firetac also has a similar profile and a thumb disk.

    Good idea for the firetac.
    But I am not a fan of the hinderer grip ergonomics, so I may pass on it if it is the case.

    I really prefer the ergonomics on the Emerson.
