Gerber FastballThe USA-made Gerber Fastball might not be Aroldis Chapman, but it’s pretty darned quick. This manual flipper features what Gerber calls B.O.S.S. Technology. Gerber tells us, “Balls of Stainless Steel technology leverages a ball-bearing system, providing Gerber’s smoothest, most consistent deployment to date. Stainless steel balls reduce friction for seamless opening every time. The cage system is designed to keep the balls contained for stable performance over the long haul.”

The Fastball is a manual flipper with a 3” S30V Wharncliffe blade. This linerlock has aluminum handles and a three-position pocket clip. It’s 4.1” closed and weighs about 2.7 ounces.
