[CQ-Contest] Flex Radio Question

I'm not sure if you are trolling or not, but I must say that this is not 
my impression at all.

I use a Flex 3000 for my single op pursuits and it does more than I 
could ask for in my contest ops.

My just previous contest radio was a TS 870, which I really enjoyed, but 
I find the 3000 offers equal or better RF performance for my uses, and 
certainly more flexibility of operating conveniences like filters, 
notches, displays and tuning options.

I guess it really boils down to personal preference, but I'll not be 
going back to a knob radio anytime soon.
