never really warmed up to them.

The advantage of a spring top is its simplicity, no pulleys, 
centering cords etc.  All of the advantages of a velcro top with less 
maintenance. And even my crew can put it together.

  The vent on my spring top is another story, it's about 
as useful as a fart in a windstorm.  I would prefer a who-who vent, 
at least it was a crowd pleaser ().
