I was just convinced to pass on a nice used C3S because I was told by my
Elmer that boom length is critical to gain and the C3S is way too short to
claim gain close to the C3 ... I suppose this will stir up some sort of
hornet's nest about the boom length issue ... go for it, as always it is
certain to be a wonderful education ... and I will shut up and just read.
