It's not that 6AG makes no difference (it does, when it comes to dodging through TZ, and pickups in TZ), it's that when people talk about throwers and say 6AG is bloat, they mean in terms of passing 5AG is exactly the same.

Fantastic work bigf. ARR is a cracking group and the box gets better and better with every new ARR team.
Can't offer advice on the ag6 I'm afraid. AD knows what's what and personally I'd pass and get block or sure hands but I'm no elf coach.

Congrats, that's a great achievement!
@AD: Maybe I'm being dumb, but why doesn't AG6 help with passing? A non-natural 1 would still succeed, wouldn't it? (I've never had the pleasure of an AG6 player :) )

Strip ball is great for the catcher although a) don't expect him to live very long and b) I would probably take dodge first. If your positional defence isn't great, the leap strip baller will make life easier but if you can defend reasonably without it, dodge is probably a better investment.
For the thrower I would probably take sure hands. I'm a fan of AG6 in certain circumstances but in the box, with a thrower on a team with catch and nerves of steel, the important thing in my opinion is to be able to nail the basics rather than going for the big plays that AG6 can afford.
Well done on the sprint.

Because passing fails on modified 1s too.
Anyway, the basis of "AG6 is bloat" is that ag5->ag6 does nothing for leaps, and general play outside of high risk moves. So effectively if you want the most return for it, you take it on a ball-retrieval specialist or a player who comes highly skilled and isn't losing skill slots he *needs* to take it. Or he's a vampire.

Does it? I thought it used the same agility table as dodging, pick-ups, etc. Guess I'd better try reading the rulebook then XD
Still, having a thrower that can dodge and pick up the ball in multiple TZs, then put in the killer pass could be handy. But yeah, it's costly and what % of games is that going to happen?

Oh, I see, it's in the fumble rules: 'a 1 before or after modification is a fumble'
