Yes I feel my comments were necessary SD. My opinion is BTS reminds me of me in that his strong opinions sometime get in they way of his education. I actually like that in him. Mostly because I know once he realizes the need to embrace all of the skills with equal importance his teaching will take a quantum leap.
It's funny to me that the edge / pressure biased argument is still being offered because I've pointed out the maneuver descriptors clearly describes wedge turns as "linked, rounded, ACTIVELY STEERED,at low speed, in a consistent gliding wedge."
Later the descriptors go on to include this "consistent natural wedge is the outcome of the open stance, active steering movements, and tactics that keep speed and forces to a minimum."
It's hard to argue against the published descriptors but that is exactly what's been happening here. Hopefully, by sharing them this issue will be settled and our less experience readers will not be misled.
Well aside from the fact that I don't appreciate my personality being critiqued on this site JASP, and while you may feel that you need to look down on me in some way, I feel that I am quite well educated and perhaps others on this site are stuck in their ways. There is no need to demean people that disagree with you. I think there are many that have appreciated the things I have written on this site and would strongly disagree with your opinion about my knowledge and perhaps yours as well. There is plenty of room for open discussion of different ideas, even when certain concepts seem to never reach resolution....
Are you really wanting to turn this into another tiring episode of pivoting is essential vs pivoting is optional? That's not what the OP asked about and we've been through that 100 times.
