    Hi Guys,

    If you own both the Silky Ultra Accel 240 and Gomboy 240 saws, which one do you like and why?

    Thanks,

    Geoff

    I own both and if I had to choose one it would be the Accel, simply because the construction seems fairly robust nothing wrong with the Gomboy, but the Accell just seems tougher.

    I do not own the Gombuy but have played with one for a little bit. Apart from the handle construction -as Pastor Chris mentioned above- the blade on the UA is also slightly thicker and taller/higher. I recon you're far less likely to break the tip on it compared to the Gomboy. And yet it is a 100gram lighter than the Gomboy 240 to boot.

    The red handled UA with the curved blade is my fav folding saw period for those exact reasons.
