Glad to see it wasn’t wasted.

Sort of like the next Summit meeting to change the world. Trump and an Aussie shot stirrer.
Trump would declare a victory for bad deals.

Havent given up on the spit....is it perfect? no...but I hope to see the true potential...

Please dont mix trump with kiting....some of us who have to deal with this on a daily basis are in a constant state of nausea....

AVS marketing gimmick...good for murky water down south that you say you ride in....

So far AVS has had positive feedback from those who have tested it. Many surprised that they noticed the difference.
The Spitfire is already forgiving of vents but still most feedback we have had is that yes it works and is noticed.

I’m not sure that the solid particules that makes water murky, have a bearing.

Besides my local waters are deemed by the international diving community as some of the clearest in the world.

If I tweet the above and say it’s a great deal. Maybe it’ll carry more weight. ;) ( he says, fishing for a bite)

Any gains in ventilation are offset by losses in the drag and annoying whistling created by the texture on the wings...plus zeeko gets away with less finish work.....unless you have data rather than anecdotal evidence its a gimmick....
