I only asked because I thought piston was a separate class as scores aren't graded and you have to choose piston when signing in. It didn't seem right to drop scores that are winning scores on the day in piston to me. Either way I'll be at Anston trying my hardest to beat Brian if I don't I'll have him at the World😄😄

To Make courses more difficult to prevent the top few percent of AA grade clearing or near clearing courses would really punish the normal shooters to the point where gp's become a small comp for the FT elite.

Shoots need support from all grades to make the comps viable, if courses were altered to prevent the best shooters from clearing, normal shooters would get their ***** handed to them comp after comp, nobody travels thousands of miles per year for that.

If a good shooter clears a course, that's brilliant, they should be congratulated for keeping it together and beating the course. Its not a reason to punish all the other shooters.

Default Piston class

There isn't a great deal of difference in attendance numbers throughout the GP series so far between C class and the piston class, maybe if the piston class were graded, it would encourage more shooters into this class.
