Great photo of you and the old one-handed technique!

Funny how so many of the components really have not changed all that much in 30 years.

Of all the components that haven't changed, the most impressive is Randy's moustache! That style should be dubbed "The Nolen" given that he's been rockin' it for three decades!

There are some great Model 1 demo pix--I can remember one (not Randy) where the guy was leaned way forward with the rig in front of him, looked like a reverse "keep on truckin'" pose...
