Yep, couldn't agree more. Leaving Striker without a dedicated replacement for so long, and with no imminent sign of a serious intent to replace it in the very near future, has been borderline criminal.
You have to wonder why they have even bothered with this little exercise at all, since we all know how this will likely end. It will be the typical tinkering but with no further action routine
It's even more silly when you think that actually, the medium weight concept could well have some legs behind it - but it needs to be properly resourced; yet we can't (or don’t want to) seem to do that. End result is we have wedded ourselves to a risky (in spite of its potential potency) force concept and exposed ourselves to even more risk by failing to properly implement it.
