I'm not arguing against your (and Leo's) point about a jump line but like I told him, it's apples and oranges because our original convo was about a single jump, not a jump line. I concede that each jump line is going to have it's own nuance and speed checks could absolutely be needed.

My point was only about a single jump. I have ZERO experience hitting a line.

This all started because I told him that you're better off finding out where your drop in is rather than doing a number of speed checks because then every time you hit that jump you're going to have to remember to get those same speed checks in. You're better off knowing where you should actually drop than relying on multiple checks leading up to your hit.


...and then of course on that very run I take my own advice and shit all over it and launch myself into next season. FML lol
