I just laughed to myself and kept on going. I clearly was swinging too fast to slow down going just to explain they were ignorant. *cracks up*

Every machine is different, but with about 1200 successful hours on my AT Pro, I'm pretty confident I'm doing it correctly. I only slow down when I've got potential for masked targets or when I'm separating. In fields for fresh drops? No way!
