Re: Question for Dave D
Mike, I need to lighten up? LOL. What does this have to do with semi-pro (besides I'm a True Amateur, not a semi-pro)?
I've seen quite a few people with the Epic in their bags and seen them throw it in competition. Whether or not it is innovation or not I suppose is a matter of opinion. Good or bad one, I think that it clearly is.
I don't see how, Dave's request for a limit to the percentage of rim to total surface is anything that would preserve the "character of the sport". The same could have been said for the bevelled edge after all. That was of far greater detriment to our courses than this is. No one is suddenly going to shoot 10 to 15 strokes better with the EDGE than they do with a Beast. But that certainly happened when the Sting Ray came out.
Dave has said that he is overly cautious concerning conflict of interest issues here on the PDGA Message Board. If this isn't a prime candidate for being cautious nothing is.
