Trust me, you made the right move.

As for a GS-A keeping up with a strong single in the woods, it's against the laws. The laws of Gravity, the laws of Physics, and any law associated with common sense. With a GS-A, you are talking about twice the weight of a 530. I will go so far as to bet a CASE of beer that there are places a 530 will go in Turkey Bay that a GREAT GS-A rider would never attempt.

.....but I would LOVE to see somebody try to prove me wrong!
