a. Professional's endorse anything for a buck.
b. Amateurs, in almost every case, should NEVER use what the pros use. They should use good quality equipment
and they should get advise, but the "pro" will tell them the "do as I say, not as I do." You should reexamine the facts on that statement.
1. Beginning golfers use softer balls and avoid carbon sticks.
2. Rock climbing shoes for beginners are different. Technique is VERY different.
3. A Pro time-trial bike is not for recreational use. All wrong.
4. An Open 60 would make a pretty poor cruiser.
5. A beginning runner is going to hurt himself following the example of a high-end marathoner. Lots of lifters have gotten hurt that way.
And in this case, most deliveries are newer boats with modern hull
designs. The rules may be different for them. The question is broader than that.
They are right for themselves and what they do, but there is too much contradictory evidence to every theory to make bold statements.
But you make a very good point.
