    As my wife always tells me... " its all in the way you use it"

    The bad part, is not many places teach induction.
    Induction is a god send once you know its place in the bag o'tricks.

    Well said Mke. Don't get me wrong, induction does have it's place if used properly. I know I use it sometimes. The problem is there are some people out there who don't know and have never been taught when it's appropriate and when it's not. They see a guy who has experience do it and think it's OK to drop the box all the time. Once they learn the bad habits, it's hard to break them of them of it and then they wonder why they get hit.
    I seek not to know the answers, but to understand the questions.

    Grasshopper you hit the nail on head with that one. You can't be throwing a Pipehorn down and expect to have an accurate locate if it is a congested area. They are an invaluable tool to have, but you got to know the time and place to use it. To use it to locate everything, everytime is asking for trouble. I know we lost a couple great locators because they got into that bad habit.
