There are many reasons for that but the one is they were already very good. I have met quite a few people like that who came to the sport from different but related disciplines. If Ben was really new, he'd not make it in 6 months.

    We're all different.
    Your trip is your own.
    Enjoy the ride.

In addition to what you highlighted about the target and array difficulty, I felt like I was going to a planned 10 rounds on multiple positions on nearly every stage. There was almost never more than 1 extra round for any position, which frequently included the difficult target presentations, mini poppers at a decent distance, or something else to trip you up. I have already seen a decline in production friendly stage design at locals due to the influx of PCC and CO, and having a nationals like this isn't going to help.

    Another thing that doesn't help with the growing production and CO participation disparity is how easy they made the classification hit factors for CO. For everything but the 19 series classifiers, they made CO high hit factors identical to production, which is crazy. It's much easier to shoot faster with good points with a dot, not to mention classifiers like 99-10 that would require a reload in production but don't in CO. Production still has a tremendous amount of heat at the top, but the middle to lower tiers of shooters are fleeing the division en masse.
    It was a very tough match, I think just looking at the percentage of points shot for the top finishers in production shows how hard it was.

    Also moving production so early in the year next year is probably going to make it like single stack at area and section matches.

    Straight from the horse's mouth on why Ben wasn't at nationals this year.

    Skip to 7:08

    TLDW: He takes the game too seriously to put up with the quality of officiating.
