    Thanks for the very thoughtful post Justin. :thumbsup:

    It makes me ponder the reason(s) behind my frequent placement as the 11th monkey on Nathan’s 10 banana sales every other Friday. Did I get hosed or are there a shortage of ladders? Should I mail-in my ballot early to pick any banana before I have all the information to know which is the best banana to choose?

    Life gets so deep sometimes...

    In my humble experience most hostility and aggression is the result of weakness more than anything else. Oh, of course, there seem to be too many crazies with too much power. The weak seem to follow the crazy.

    I watched the documentary of Laird Hamilton surfing the first big wave, something like 93 feet. It genuinely is a pass/fail environment. If he failed it would have, by all accounts, killed him. I'm not a surfer, but watching the film was awe inspiring. At one point he pivoted to drag is outside hand, which really ought not to be done. But he was in a zone and it had to be done for whatever reason. It should not have worked, and if it hadn't it also could have been the end. He had it dialed in that day, I guess.

    So, is Ti hardware, stonewashed then PVD DLC coated really that much different than the standard stainless black oxide coated hardware?

    Here is a really low light pic comparing the two.

    My personal opinion, yes.
    Total blackout. Love it!

    What's the game there?

    I always liked having a retriever in the mix on upland game birds. Maybe the best dog work I ever got to enjoy was a day on Chukar and Quail down on the Snake River. My buddy's Brittany pointed probably 19 of the 20 birds (we limited out) that day, and my Golden retrieved every bird that day. It was one of those magical days that you could go back to for the rest of your life. Somehow having the two dogs that day just clicked.
