That...I'd play. I refuse to play mixed combo as it now stands. Those 4.5M/3.5F combos are killers to the average mixed pair.
Yep, totally agree.
I have certainly had fun, competitive matches where the women were 4.0 and the men were 3.5 (7.5 mixed combo). Mostly, I think mixed works best where everyone is on level. So only 4.0s and below can play 8.0 mixed, and so forth.
