Spring assist EDC suggestions?

I have a benchmade Nakamura carbon fiber handle manual. Wanting something with spring assist but no flipper on the backside. I want it to deploy fast with thumbstud. Price isnt a issue. Thanks!

I carried different Benchmade models and the handles were too small. So I tried the new Gerber when they came out and it was too heavy plus the metal pocket clip ruined some good clothes. If ya'll find a good one then let me know.

Which Gerber was that? I guess the thumb assist isnt too bad. Left a benchmade Emissary on a reef in Philippines.

Benchmade auto striker 90sumthin or other. Everyday in my pocket, and use it often. The deployment is just as fast and strong as the day I got it. Canít go wrong.
