I use official results in competition to know who's the elite of this sport. What’s wrong?There's a difference between knowing a method and being able to perform it as proficiently as your 'main' method. (I can't believe this has to be pointed out to you)
This thread comes around every few months on this forum, it usually ends with me trying to explain to someone who doesn't quite understand the situation about how you cannot use statistics to show that one method is better than another.
Feel free to ignore my question about Waterman, I know thinking about the answer may make you question what you believe.
The elite is supposed to find and try better methods and equipments. ZZ didn’t pop out last week and isn’t widely use by the elite. So either the elite is lazy or ZZ has been tried and rejected, I suppose.
I understood that you don’t share my opinion.
I know nothing about Waterman.
