    Hi all,<br>I am a newbie and I want to know PROS and CONS of both methods, what I've seen is that OTT is much more popular than TTF, I will be grateful with your knowledge and experiences ...

    TTF:<br>+ no handslaps, no fork hits.<br>+ more accurate, i think.<br>- higher fork.<br>- without tapering, the bands can break on the forks side and snap in your face (depending on attaching method)<br><br>OTT: <br><br>+ less wrist strain with stronger bands if fork is low.<br>+ smaller models for the backpocket possible.<br>- abrasion on bands by friction with fork tips (wonder if that makes serious difference, if not).<br>- not so accurate when you're not careful while attaching the bands. center of pouch has to be in line with center of fork (!fork hits!).
