    I doubt the power up will save much time as you can wind quick enough. .however it will save fatigue leaving you more energy to work quick

    I would recommend anyone newish to wfp to go out with someone who's been doing it for years and has good standards..it's amazing how much time you can save by learning the tricks of the trade on the job
    I learnt a fair bit working with Damo even though I switched to wfp 6 months ago and thought i was fast

    Same can be said for trad..come out with me tradding and you'll soon be working quicker lol
