Yeah are we talking about a electric knife are a regular filet knife. I like a flexible blade for a filet knife. My electric Mister Twister knife has a stiff blade and I believe it's the only option I have. I can filet fish with it just fine.

Flex is my preferred fillet knife whether electric or old school.

Agree. Battery life is great, comfortable in your hand, plenty of blade choices and makes quick work of a mess of fish.

I like stiff blades for more precise cutting....
For a knife that you don't have to worry with a cord don't overlook the Rapala R12 with lithium batteries.... It gets the job done and quickly without wasting your meat for me.....

The specs for either are the same except the red case as BF (think Black Friday) at the end of the model number. I have the black as the red case wasn't out yet. I've had it for a couple of years and it performs flawlessly at less $. I wish it had a charge indicator. That is the only thing lacking IMO. After the initial charge, I did three limits of crappie back-to-back from separate outings without a charge. It was still performing as is, but I charged it just in case. I simply remember to charge it every now and then. It does not get hot at all. I used to have to cool the American Angler (corded) I use to fillet with. No trouble with the flex in any of the three blade choices.

Best electric filet knife I’ve had is a cheap ozark trail one from Walmart. I’ve had terrible luck with any of the mister twister products, where it be the flex or the stuff blades.
