You've been good in what way?
90% from 15', 85% from 20', 75% from 30'?
... or you've flown stable down the moral and ethical fairway?

If your percentages already rock, then skip the basket. But if your sheer humanitarian lifestyle has earned you a basket, well then... only one reward for that!

Better to beg for forgiveness later than to ask for permission now!

Hear that.
FYI for indoor/winter practice, we've always gotta point out how the Skillshot folds down to essentially be a Gateway Bullseye... nice narrow target area to fine-tune your aim, and (for near-indoors) pretty easy to dampen the noise by wrapping the pole in cloth or bubble wrap.

You don't know my wife..example of the last time i bought something without telling her:

Wife:" Next time you do that i'm gonna superglue your penis to your stomach!"

Me (being a smartass and exaggerating penis size): "don't you mean my chest?"

Wife: "That can be arranged!"

-BTW she said i could order one. now which one?

At least she said yes. Now to remove all the superglue (and staples/staplers and duct tape) from the house!

The tripod is really solid! We've had it out in some "typical" Texas winds (plenty to make a Traveler fly away) and it takes a serious gust to tip it... well beyond Firebird winds. The tripod is some of the most heavy-duty metal on the entire thing, and if you simply aim two legs into the wind, stabilizing the back end with one leg directly opposite the wind direction, you should be set for any reasonable conditions.

Now that, we can't help you with at all.


Except for the fact that RED will make you a better player.
