Steve at SV Panope helped me decide. I was focused on the Mantus and the Spade. I liked how both preformed. I chose Mantus as cost was 20% less than the Spade. The Spade had a beefier shank but it’s set geometry was not as good as the Mantus. The weight downward force, on the tip of the Mantus and the less cost tipped the scale for me.
