Re: How To Dope The Wind Beyond Belief-DVD Review
Some people are great athletes but poor play-by-play commentators. John Porter exemplifies those that can do both when he uses slow-mo and graphic animation to draw in the vertical component of spindrift while explaining his Alaska moose shot & again when he addresses mirage. David Tubbs is a very technical minded shooter who probably has beat more competitors with his thinking than his trigger finger...his explanations for instance on angle shooting where he breaks out the lateral distance component for drop correction but reminds us to use the full line of sight distance for crosswind component correction is genius and should be rewound and replayed to imbed it in our minds. Steve Goff's comments are concise and if you will review his dissertation on the 10 O'clock to 4 O'clock vertical component of RH twist spindrift in a crosswind you will get some gold. Frankly, Bobby Hart should do some preparation before he opens his mouth on this DVD, his remarks on BC,twist rate and wind did not showcase his talents. More over Mike Colpo may be a wonderful shooter and hopefully instructor but he also opened his mouth before he engaged his brain, telling me something is "very,very important" or"is what it is" is worthless verbiage . Lance Hopper has potential but needs to get over that on camera deer-in-the-headlights stare so you know when he is about to spit out a nugget of wisdom. That's pretty harsh commentary but after wasting the first third (approx 30 mins) of the DVD on equine excrement my patience was wearing thin. I had hungered for a DVD as I am a visual learner(hint there are also kinesthetic & auditory) and though there were great plays in this game the fumbles and penalties distracted more than a little. Not as good dollar for dollar overall as THE WIND BOOK cunningham&miller.
