yep, i think everyone's concern is that they need to be handled carefully to make sure the skill of the shooter is the overiding factor in knocking them over.
I think it was a revelation just how hard you could push it and still skill was the reason the shot dropped... but then it was a championship course... and i remind myself that although GP's are as well, they're not all about AA's battling it out.
I reckon a lot of lower grades would find reducers a challenge, but something they would conquer, if they were sensible. I think you could perhaps even mandate that they were beyond 10yds and not in say known black spots on scope ranges so it didn't become a kit problem for some.
