    Bryan, I was a recent BUD/s dud, and I’m 99% sure you already heard this, but we have been taking apart the actuator nowadays.  We have to pop the pin you were fiddling with and then take the pin that the lever lifts out with the spring.  Also, I am hoping on going back and one of my weaknesses was boats on heads.  These days they can easily performance drop for not being able to keep up with the boat.  Do you have any advice on how I could work on this deficiency?

    Just got a chance to watch.  Is the contest still open?

    Hi. As always, great heads-up on the newest gears out in the market.  How time flies! In any case, I have the ITS Discreet Bag alread. I say already because it took nearly three months for it to get her, but it’s NOT ITS’ FAULT. It just took a roundabout way to get to me. Amazing bag–i’m planning to put it through its paces in an upcoming vacation and posting a review on youtube.  The free ITS patch was a pleasant surprise, by the way.  But I don’t know what the tokens are for. Happy 1st Year, Geartasting!
