      I still suggest you try a little before committing to 14 stumps.

          Hey Denny---I shot you an email with a few questions. I might just have to dip my toe into the world of Pegas blades vs FD. At least to try! Open minded explorations. Thank you ! Linda

          Be careful---soon she will be able to outrun you! Remember when fridges lasted for decades?! Glad she's doing well.
