I stay away from these "experts" and go with lesser name guys. I paid a lot less (I'm sure) for Bob Harvey and went 2-0 (Washington State UNDER 65.5 and Central Florida. I'm not a shill and I'm not a troll but I'm sick of these so called "Big Names" continuing to get the business and not producing.
