Top Gun (unsolicited letter)

Tim

Got our first chance to use VX-5 today and the results were fun to see. My daughter said she could feel her brain "working" and I watched her start to discern the 1 ball difference between "good" and "bad" pitches almost instantaneously. Heck, I think I even throw better BP with it. We noticed that her ball distribution in the outfield was much more uniform toward center as well. I took the V-flex away in the last round and she told me that she missed it already and wanted it back.   Thx keep up the good work and have a great weekend.   -Ryan Caldwell-

After I received the E-mail from Ryan, I ask him to send me his contact info and a short bio. Well, well, below is what he sent.  I was pleasantly amazed because I have a friendship with another previous Top Gun instructor  as well as the developer of the F-18 fighter pilot helmet.   "It sure is a small world" if you know what I mean.  The photo is of Ryan breaking the Sound Barrier.
