Wouldn't flattening the detent, if anything, make the pressure/tension/friction of the blade opening and closing increase? Going back to my understanding of why the flattened ball works, it seems to me that using the largest ball possible, sunk as deep as practical into the tang, and accompanied with the lightest spring detent pressure that will still function correctly is going to be as effective and easier to set up. The makers of the Waboba (which stands for ‘water bouncing ball’) have made an interesting use of the viscoelastic nature of polymers to cross the line between a thrown ball and a skipping stone.

A lock bar relief cut that is too thick will work against you after the ball is overcome with flipper tab pressure.

Waboba entering the water, flattening under the compressive force of the ball hitting the back of the water depression. My method till now is by just bending the lock a bit stronger, but i am finding this to be unsatisfactory with either the blade action being a bit stiff, and if i bend it too strong the blade goes slightly off center. Looks and feels like a ball but it flattens on a hurley so makes it easier for practicing solo running. Maybe put something in front of the rack, leaning against the head ball, and see if the impact patch is captured on that.

Look at various videos on-line of the Waboba, and you will see that a thrown Waboba will skip across a flat body of water with equal, or some would say, more enthusiasm than a stone. The Wahu Phlat Ball is a fun toy that randomly transforms from a 9-inch flying disc to a 6-inch ball when thrown.This amount includes seller specified domestic postage charges as well as applicable international postage, dispatch, and other fees. If you took a good design that had plenty of resistance to opening and countersunk the hole, for instance, that shoulder would allow the ball to slip out of the hole much more easily. I found the size of the hole interesting in that conventional wisdom says that the hole is smaller than the ball. The clip reveals the unbelievable distortion it undergoes and its flexibility - even under the extreme stress of going from 150mph to zero in a split second.

I don't think those same principles comes in to play here, however, due to the hard surfaces we're talking about, ~60+Rc each. You want the ball to fall almost all the way in the hole but not completely, you dont want the lock bar to hit the blade when the knife is closed. I still to this day after making a couple thousand knives in over 12 years of making, try to get my consistency better and better by trying new things and tune tune tune. Phlat Ball is a unique outdoor toy that transforms from a nine inch flying disc to a six inch diameter ball when you throw it.The flattening device is hard to make work and the product breaks apart without being able to be fixed. If you are instead referring to the video I am working on (for which I hit all the breaks), that will need to wait until I am done. Relieve the back of the detent hole, make sure the hole is plenty deep, make sure you have enough tension on the lock bar.
