I agree with OP, 4-4.5 is not a very good level, since I can claim 4.0 and play an average of once a week.

Perhaps we are getting hung up on terminology... when I say 'can hit these shots' I mean can do it *consistently* and when under pressure, not once in a while when things go right.

If you guys can do that, then my friends you are better than any 4.5s I know!
