Chris, what's your opinion so far with 3.01? I've made around six or seven different patches and so far I'm really liking it. I need to spend more time with it but I'm digging it.to stay current. 5.0 may be released down the road and have something you really want. then you'd have to learn everything that changed from 3 to 5.
that's just one way to view it. some people are completely satisfied with a particular version - i know some are still on old 17 for example - and they really don't ever want to update; it's perfect for them as is.
if you are the type to like updates though, i'd suggest updating whenever you can to stay as current as possible. of course your tone might change right now with 3.0, and you'd have to adjust. but you'd be current.
it's really all about what you value from the Axe. no one is wrong with how the do it.
