sounds to me like it could acually be a big change after everything is set in stone.

good or bad?? what does everyone think?

i read it as: spear whatever size u wanna throw at even if the angling has a slot. i dont feel that that is right, but trying to stay in the slot and getting one out of the slot will cover your but?
