In terms of tourney players who are doing it to perfect certain skills, it's so they don't get butt-raped while trying. As much as you guys want to say, "Yeah, I go on the airball field with a stock class Phantom and own everyone" you need to realized that not everyone is cut out to do that. I would say that a large portion of the guys who go out and AT the crap out of everyone are tourney ballers who spend 95% of their playing time with an electro.
That being said, if that's how they're gonna play on the rec ball field, I would much rather get a couple extra hits at 7 bps than a whole bunch at 15 bps.
