Just a quick question here to all the front players... I know that it depends on the situation, but do you superman dive into the 50 or slide in? Personaly I take diving on my field because the 50 snake is REAL low, so if i get in there already face down, i dont have to worry abuot switching around from by back.

I never dive. I have too much respect fo my gear. I've never encountered a situation where I would need to dive.

I have a lot of respect for my gear too. The only thing that takes a beating is my tank covers... and i have tons of thoes. But I also seem to find it faster and better if your getting behind a low 50. I stoped sliding in after 1 time last year I was turning from laying low on my ass/pack to my knee's/elbows... i poked up too high and got grilled.... even know I went fast, I find it easier, instead of chaning position to get ready to shoot... I would rather land in my shooting position.

I dive on occasion. The first time I did in in a game, I had never preacticed it before. I finished the game using nothing but the back of my Pipe. The front decided it didn't like being crammed in the ground and folded over. After that embarrassment, I spent 2-3 weekends diving with no gear. Now I play with a UL and dive pretty decent for a fossil.

Most of the time I slide because most of the snake around hear aren't that small.

I do not dive. Diving means you cannot maneuver, you cannot shoot (decently), and you cannot adequately SEE what's going on.

Instead, when I have to get up on the field (I'm a fat back man, sorta) I'll get going.. and if I have to duck down.. I'll drop to my knees and slide in - I have actually shot people out while sliding like that. Not many, not often, but it does mean I can still maneuver, see, and shoot.

D, I agree, but I also have back guys that I trust and talk WAY more than they really need to, so I don't need to see alot to know what's happening. As for shooting, well, I can't hit the broad side of a barn with a snow shovel, so I guess it doesn't matter too much there. Embarassed
