the text of the poll has to be short and there is no multi answer...

SHORT TEXT like the current poll is key.

    the next towboat I'll buy will be : brand spanking new, good condition used promo, under 500 hours, under 1000 hours, under 2000 hours, so worn out it'll need new seats and carpet

    During the season, how many sets do you do per week/season?
    weekly......
    1-5
    6-10
    11-15
    16-20

    It would be interesting to see if I am a freak or not. Actually, it would be nice to see if it is just me, or does everybody do lots of sets and see only small improvements in buoy count....

  • MattPMattP Posts: 5,973 Mega Baller
    @Marco that is something that none of us actually want to calculate or think about... I'm only 20 and have been in this sport for 12 years and I have an idea of what I have spent.... Not worth thinking about
  • MarcoMarco Posts: 1,406 Crazy Baller
    @MattP- So true. By its nature, addicts don't want to confront the harsh realities resulting from their (our) addiction...

    Ooh, I'd be interested to see the results of boarditup's poll. So I'll put in a vote for that one to eventually make the cut.

    @Horton-I can definately relate. We made a big time commitment when we decided to build a lake. I don't think I'll ever get to retire...

    A lot of users here assume that the members are all running 38 off. How about a poll asking what your personal practice best is? It would give a better perspective on where the average Joe is at. Newbies and lurkers should be encouraged to put a vote in.

    It could go something like this:

    Free skiing only
    Learning the course at 15off (any speed)
    Into 15 off (max speed)
    Into 22 off
    Into 28 off
    Into 32 off
    Into 35 off
    Into 38 off
    Into 39 1/2 off and beyond

    @T-from-TO WOOT! I made the last category, which conveniently makes it looks like I might have some hope of running "beyond" 39!! (which is a complete lie)

    Slightly more seriously, I think I'd keep going. There's a big difference between somebody into 43 than 41 than 39. And ideally you'd want to overlay 36 mph because running -38 there is totally different from running it at 34 mph. That makes the poll a lot less clean, though, unless you do it by buoy count. But then someone who doesn't do many tournaments would have no clue where to put themselves!!

  • T-fromTOT-fromTO Posts: 110 Baller
    I thought of buoy count, but a lot of people don't know what theirs is and the poll should be as inclusive as possible. (I actually don't know what my buoy count is but I could probably figure it out if I had to.)

    The "39 and beyond" is good enough I think, there are only a handful of guys on here that are in that category anyway. The poll is just interesting information, not a rating.
