Not trying to prove anything MIEventer, just asking a question.
Sunny has been rather outspoken recently against the crest release. I simply asked her what she was getting at, and she was getting at something. I prefer not to be a mind reader, but for people to say what they mean.
As for the crest release vs auto, I know some may disagree but IMO there is little benefit to using an auto release vs crest release on most modern hunter courses.
When you have 'outside line, diagonal, outside, diagonal' as your course, you don't need to be micro managing every step of the way. A nicely done crest release is just as good, and it makes life a bit easier when staying with the 'WOW' jumps.
Further along that train of thought, these show hunters have WOW jumps. I'd be lucky to stay on, let alone having perfect eq.
