I do not know Yvon, but he must be doing something right because Canada won their first round and is in the R16 for the first time ever.

The 5 Star is big. You are correct. Wasn't there so can't comment on strength of guys helping him. Just kidding.

I haven't talked to stringing equipment R&D in a couple months, but it is only natural to think reduction of size is something they are working on.
