Yes, definately. As a matter of fact there was several of us that were
expierencing this and our leader and mentor (Michael) suggestde we leave the
old set in until the new set was determined to be working properly. I
thought myself "Why didn't I think of that?" Since then I started leaving
the old set in until noon or so after changing a set in the morning and that
pretty well corrected my highs after a set change. Works for me anyway.
Thanks again Michael.
