Hopups offer better durability, tuning options, and bling factor.

They DO NOT make the DRIVER any bettre.

Exactly what I'm talking about.

I must really give you credit for keeping your composure with these guy’s. Who cares how you type, I understand everything you type…. so don’t listen to them, the only difference between them and you is they use spell check before they post especially after they criticize you.

You’re an Ok Dude for not lashing back, I know I wouldn’t put up with it.

there is one thing I've learned....."Don't type it if you wouldn't say it to there face". That's just weak.

Oh man! you are making it really hard for us people that do not have English as native language. I think of myself as to be pretty good at English even though I have Swedish as native language but this makes it really hard.

I bet that I would have a hard time understand ANYTHING you say in the real world but I guess thats on me!

And also, If anyone else does check their typing before posting to make it easy for the fellow reader to understand, why can't everyone do that?
And of course do excuse if I make typing errors, I'm REALLY trying to get it right!
I can type perfect Swedish though: Tack för att ni läser allt skräp jag skriver ochhoppas det är någon Svensk som läser detta och kan få sig ett gott skratt. Jag har ABSOLUT inga problem med hans språk, jag retas bara!

Dude, how are you going to call someone out about their grammar when you yourself butcher the english language too? Learn the difference between Your and You're, and grab a dictionary while you're at it.
