Love them as do clubs. They put in the cash. People complain about the drag. No matter how many birds are in a race, the numbers will not affect a highly motivated bird, old or young from sticking to the course home. JMO.

Good & bad aspects from my perspective Hal with the mob flyer issue etc. For me, & I speak as if a local issue Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes the money men "chook farmer" types "on average" think every one should be spending the money they spend to race etc & the little type flyers are walking away from the sport here in droves unfortunately Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad with the sport sadly in general being the big loser in the end. cheers

It makes a big difference mob flying in a club where all members are within a mile of each other and the big number fliers are good pigeon men to start with.
Not so bad over 300 mile but under...numbers is a big advantage.
Yes i know they can still be beat but the odds are in there favour.

A fair appraisal I would suggest FW Wink Wink. For years our sport was built around the working man type. These days for many I'm affraid  it has turned more into the horse racing saga with the crazy money certain people spend now to just win a race worth peanuts etc from my perspective. Sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad unfortunately, for the future the way I look at things Wink Wink. cheers

Totally agree, if you have a 100 away and not good enough you will still not win..I am a mob flyer but that's because I love trying other birds every single year and to hopefully get better ones to beat the ones I already have...at the end of the day it's up to you how you fly and how many
