    SCAG of course! like my dad said, even if it cant mow it looks awesome!

    seroiusly, though, i like my scag (only had it since thurs) but i think the controls are pretty hard to work. Of course im a vy small dude at 150 pounds and i have no thumb on my right hand. But i did think the yazoo i drove had better controls. I opted for the Scag for reputation and quality.

    Pollicization. A process where they take ur index finger and rotate it so many degrees (not sure how many) to function as a thumb. Actually i can throw the lock faster on my bad hand than my good, the "thumb" is longer.

    Its ugly but functional.

    I have had it since i was 2 so u get used to it.
