I'm all for progress. I just don't see any with carbon clinchers and don't see a breakthrough on the horizon either. They do look great though.

Is there a link to this information?
But I'll again voice my skepticism about their test and their testing protocols:
Why are they testing with a clothed dummy, and loose ropes/wires bouncing around?
I also don't quite understand their open test environment. It's significantly different from the other open and closed return tunnels I've seen in that usually the test subject is still shrouded and the tunnel doesn't 'open' until after the air passes over them.
And why does their data diverge so significantly from the manufacturer data, as well as other independent tests?
