I don’t think the topic of this thread was to discuss the qualities of a good fireball, per say. I mean, if I had to say, “What makes a good fireball,” I would have just checked off the entire list in the poll. In combination, that’s the best fireball to use, hands-down.
I think it’s better to discuss what the “best” single aspect of a fireball is, which might have been the true point of the poll, even though the thread title is a bit misleading.
Personally, I voted recovery at the end. That’s the most important of all the important aspects. It doesn’t matter if my fireball has good vertical coverage, the ability to mix high or low, or even if it comes out really fast… if the recovery time isn’t decent, then the fireball becomes much less useful.
