Avery is a good representative for Innova...Feldberg, not so much.
could you kindly expound upon that?
I'd prefer you find out for yourself, don't take anyone else's word, meet him and see for yourself. I don't mind Dave all that much, I think he's just hyper and high strung a lot of times, and I've known a lot of people like him. And he puts in an awful lot of work for the sport, and continues to do good things. I'm also rough at times (although I don't represent anyone but myself), so I give a lot of latitude to others, and hope they return the favor if I ever come off as a jerk (which is inevitable at times, I often volunteer to be the one to speak up when nobody else is willing). I've been more offended by things other big name pros said or did, and still I let it go because I know it was in the passion of the moment, and they didn't know what they were talking about.
Still, Dave rubs a lot of other folks the wrong way, whining, complaining, etc....there's even an expression I hear often these parts: "stop being a Feldberg!" This is really no secret, he is legendary for this kind of thing, and he knows it just as well as anyone else. I think he's trying to get better. He isn't quite as bad as Patrick Brown, who we're already accustomed to seeing more frequently.
Avery, on the other hand, is just a really nice guy, and over time he (and his entire family) really stand out as class acts. Only once did I ever see him blow up and kick his bag, and that was a few years ago, and more or less in private. The thing that people complain about with Avery is that he seems more into self-promotion than anything else, but I personally don't think there is anything wrong with that. Avery does more work than 3 guys can do when he shows up to work days, and put in a great deal of work around here...so that earned him a lot of points. I'm pretty sure he puts in an equal amount of effort in every other thing he is involved with, which is a lot (always something new).
