    Hmmm, I pinned and I caught on my first try with Evan's tutelage, but then I went back to the single hand and caught as many as Evan did with the pin. Although he was having a bit of a hook up ratio problem, at least that is what he claimed anyway. I was having a case of the OMS myself with a bummed wrist, but still we both landed 5 or more a piece that day with others on. No split for me. Since though, I tried a 8 wt switch that I loved oh so much more than my single hander and I doubt I will ever go back. The extra length gives you better line control for working seems and as mentioned before it helps with hook set especially when you've made a super long drift.
