I play on all terrains, big rocky boulders, out in the woods, speedball fake grass fields, indoor sandy fields, they all get the gorilla feet treatment

And yes, mine are the old trek model which I cannot find on their website anymore

Redbeard,

Let's talk about your playing strategy. How does a speedball game typically go for you? Describe your obviously unique tactics.

Hahaha, my tactics: be as unpredictable as possible, and never hold still. Some of my favorites are:

Superman dive mid snake instead of entering the snake from the back.
Sprinting to the 50 spike/carwash/whatever off the break (you'd be surprised with yourself how far and how quickly you can clear the field with your arms free).
Instead of bumping around the snake bunkers (we usually use tombstones) try superman diving OVER them after you've taken out your mirror if the D side is distracted. Back players NEVER expect it!

Anyway, most of the time I walk off the field with just my 1 elimination, but I'm proud that with practice I'm not a detriment to whatever team I'm playing with. I have been known to clean up fields on my really good days All in all I do it because it's fun, keeps me in shape, and I definitely more challenging!

So how do you feel about extended magazines for the T8? Or First Strike rounds?

More shots, or more breaks...?
