Swing trigger frame suggestions

What's the best swing trigger frame on the market in your opinions? I'm looking at getting either a CCM 86* or 45 double finger frame, an Eclipse swing frame or something else. I'm basically just looking for the fastest frame that is comfortable and I'm hoping for full overtravel/take-up adjustments.

Eclipse frames are the best swing frames. Jackal machine 90's and CCM 86's are the best quality "non-traditional" frames.

I have a chrome Eclipse Hinge that I think I'd be willing to sell to you.

No thanks on the eclipse hinge for now. I'm going for black parts but if I don't find anything I'll hit you up for that frame.

The ANS frames are very similar to the Eclipse and may be easier to get. Have tried both and cant say I prefeer any of them over the other.

I found the Powerlyte Hinge frame to have a better trigger geometry for firing. With lightened springs, I could "walk" mine. I've had much less luck on Eclipse MKIIIs.

Eclipse hinge's are quite nice, but my personal favorite are the Kapp Reflex II's.

The KAPP's are very nice. Very adjustable. And the trigger is big enough that even with my gorilla paws I can get three fingers on the trigger if I really for some reason would find that necessary.

I know there has to be a reason Palmers offers the KAPP frames as an option.

I love the one on my Type X, go with system X, just send it to a custom shop to get the back of the frame bevelled or it's uncomfortable as hell. Gives you an amazing trigger though.

*Edit* I just put a set of uncut sticky 3's on my system X frame. I couldn't get all the holes to line up properly, but you really only need the top two screws in if you're using the full wraparound grips. They make the Type X frame feel awesome.
