    Great thread idea.


    Jo,
    What size glove do you wear?

    (To help me determine which handle to get on my CC)

    I haven't had any plans to, but I'm not against it. If there is a lot of interest I could bring it back.

    Hi Jo, thanks for taking my question.

    Do you like like working with Nathan or is it something that you're forced to do because of that contract?

    What's your favorite thing to cut in comoetition (a line of water bottles, 2x4)? What's the most difficult (golf ball, 2x4)?

    I like cutting the rolling tennis and gold balls. The water bottles are definitely fun though. The 2x4 is the most exhausting. The thicker ropes are also difficult. And with the ropes, it has to be both a clean cut and within the target zone.

    Hi Jo, visited the BSI website and saw some of the competitions you placed in. Congrats and looking forward to attending some in the future. Do you think you will ever offer Carothers T-shirts for sale. Would be cool to be at some of these events and do some advertising for you folks.
    Cheers,
