don't blame you in the slightest. I started with HFT and was gently harangued into FT. Before I knew what was what I had a new rig for FT! I like the differences between full blown FT and HFT, I enjoyed both immensely. The only downside I found was the difficulty in doing both disciplines to a decent standard. I found that through the winter my FT shooting steadily improved at the expense of HFT. Through the summer my HFT shooting steadily improved at the expense of FT. I just couldn't maintain my best form in both.
All I was suggesting is that for those not stupid enough to cough up for a second rig or unwilling to compromise their HFT rig, then SFT is a viable option. That's surely pretty much what and who it was intended for.
