I was hoping to get a couple of opinions on this. I have gone back to shooting 99% 35mm (RIP Bronica), but I am using my old Metz 50-MZ5 handle flash, which has never let me down. My question is should I sell the handle flash and go with a shoe mount or do you think I should stick with the flash I have?

A handle bar flash will usually give you a lot more possibilities than a shoe mount flash. Since you can hold the handle bar flash high above the camera, or off to the side, etc, you can vary the light a lot. I'd keep it.
Cheers,
