cutterorient is on a distinguished road
All true. To each his own. It did work - although flawless is a pretty big word in any context - to its credit. An analogue may be this; I use a Bruce as my primary anchor. Others may favor other designs that work. For reasons unnecesary to write here, I deploy the Bruce.

Sometimes after using a piece of gear I have not used before I say 'Wow thats great'. Sometimes I am very happy to have what I have. My intention was to say simply I have used it and wouldn't want it.

In what is likely another unpoular view here, I feel being 'able to do everything' from the cockpit is overrated. And unrealistic.
