    Nesting Tricks From An Old Coot

    Excellent reference article, you have saved many souls on this forum from many uncomfortable nights of trying to figure out what's going on and "tuning in" their set ups... Well written and humorous. This one is in my Evernote cache of great references. Thank you!

    Centering

    I always have tried to center between the 2 trees, but never considered strap stretch as one of the reasons of such. Makes A LOT of sense, thank you.

    You can always learn something from an Old Coot, like a fountain of knowledge. Thanks for sharing!

    From an "Old Coot" to another - this article makes great sense. Experience can be considered logic.
