@Rodney - i didn't get a screen printed shirt of the CMYK Fish design. i'm aware it had a clear gel coating, but other than that, how did the DTG version compare?

He will stay as legend in DTG jungle. Like Justin Walker. I have to ask him to borrow belt from him until next one. What a wonderful day!
Cheers! Bravo NeoFamily.

Since the contest is for the machine owners and not for the manufactures, the winner should really have the belt in their shop

Belt belong to honorable Champ whole time is so sure. AA brought to shows with Champ last year which was won by Justin Walker. He stayed next to belt and often he wore for like wrestler to who was curious about it.
Last year, celebrate Champion Party pictures was posted here and Rodney felt sorry he could not make it. Belt was there not in shop.
So many shows Justin attended and he received many contacts, respects and benefits. Was it a bad idea than stay in print shop? I want to mention Over sea shows experiences are overwhelmed. No one I meant 99% majority are never heard what is TSF. Tigers explained all day to them what about TSF is.
Let's look at it this way for moment. All the race on earth which use other than himself need supporting gear. Body builder? Lol. Speedo?
Marathon, need good shoes.(Nike)
Bicycle , I heard that cost more than car. Italian $500K.
Car race. NASCAR famouse Driver and famouse Car brand follow.
Horse race, same.
So if we have NIKE, Italian Bike, Chevy, I'll HAVE ANOTHER (this year Champ horse name) will we win all the race? Never but so sure have bigger chance to win than who doesn't. I like what Rodney said.

So? Belt should stays in shop where not many people visit or tell the world who is Champ Gerald is, what is TSF is and what was his gear? I am sure this is split vote.
Anyway, I always Cheers and beers are on me.

Oh, also I missed to mention is
Most DTG owners are operating in house as a shop but they can be famouse as a star. This is one of beauties DTG jungle has.
I'd like to hear about belt should be travel or stay in shop? AA will factor in your opinion.
Cheers again to the Champ!

I saw "the belt" at ISS in Orlando and it was great ... to be honest never heard about this competition before and I'm present on TSF from 2007 ...
After that, got me into thinking about going in to DTG
I think that we should be able to see winning t-shirt also !
Most of us looking to get into DTG would like to see that famous winning shirt and have a better look how our future print should look alike ...
Be able to personally talk with the champ and exchange few tips would be ice on the cake
