Would be cool! Hope it is legit.

I believe you might be able to get it for free on here (or soon will be). Farmer had a site where you fill out a lot of info and could get almost any magazine for free. I get my WSM for free this way.

That is the first I've heard of it....I'd think they would have been out at some of the tournaments over the summer doing some promotion. It would be great to see an magazine like that but sad to say they are shooting at a pretty small audience.

I can tell you that it is legit. I have just received my first copy (Ron Scarpa on the cover in the new 2006 RS Vortex wetsuit doing a front toe hold). It was a little bit late (2 months) because I live in Canada and all the foreign mail was returned because of shipping issues.

It is a 36 page full color magazine printed on what seems to be some kind of plastified or very glossy paper. It might only be 36 pages, but there is only 3 pages of ads and all the rest is about the sport. There are great tips, bios and lots of event coverage and participation from the readers.

I encourage every footer to support this first magazine of our sport. I think it is well worth the money!

I agree. It's a legit magazine, maybe a little rough around the edges, but the content is great. Worth the $20.00 if you crave more info on footing - something that gets very little press. Actually I was suprised when I picked up the first issue and saw a group picture of Colorado footers including my family and a picture of my daugter at a clinic. Footers are a small population and its neat to acually see a connection in a publication like this.
