Good job putting up this post.It puts a better view on accurcy.I watched a video of a guy who had some serious time in this field and he says we should do 10 individual single point tests -EVERY TIME?.I think this puts that in perspective.

Appreciate the feedback William.  The piece comes from our newsletter, if you're not on the list and want to get on, just let me know. Thanks.
