    Are you sure you're getting your moneys worth out of that? I think you should get a second opinion on that and send it to me for long term testing so you know you got a good copy :biggrin:

  12. Congrats Scott....I know you will be extremely pleased. Looking forward to some shots.

    Just a quick hand-held grab of my 9 year old at practice tonight. It's going to take some getting used to...
