One of my new clips had a problem straight from the package with its threads. I could start a bolt maybe half a turn from one side and 6 or 7 turns from the opposite side until it would bind. I ran a tap through it which removed more metal than would be expected from a boogered up starter thread. I perceived this to be a problem during manufacturing. My rig works very well but without a tap these would have had to be returned. Love my Scout and I’m having a blast.
This is far better than the original flip clip in that it is metal and not plastic, the only Improvement to this new flip clip that I can see, would be if it were a little bit smaller. Other than that this is a big Improvement.
These new FLIPCLIP X for the Scout are most definitely an upgrade from the original and work very very well keeping your bands secure and safely attached to your forks. The only reason I am rating this product 4/5 stars is because my set of FCX do not want to work with attaching my bands with a TTF configuration. The FCX that attaches to the right fork does not sit properly, but the other fits fine. I checked for abrasions, nicks and any other kind of deformations on my Scout and still don't understand how it does not fit properly. It could be a fault of my own, but they both fit perfectly in a OTF configuration. Also, looped tubes are a little difficult to attach for me, but that could be my own ignorance dealing with them. Regardless, this is a great product and I definitely reccomend these as an upgrade to the original Flip Clips.
This new band attachment device addresses the one weakness with the original setup, not that it was bad before just that this is better.stronger and more convenient. The extra few ounces of weight is hardly noticeable and if anything seems to stabilize the aiming process. This gives the Scout a more durable rugged feel. I plan to order a set for my other Scout.
The increased durability is confidence inspiring.
I can't speak highly enough about these FlipClip X! They hold on like CRAZY and (I thought they looked bulky at first, maybe), the added bulk on the forktips makes the Scout even BETTER!
I'm blown away.
