Terence Robinson's "Top 10 reasons why I like the tall spindle system"*

1. Most profitable (at least in USA)
2. High early yields
3. High mature yields
4. High fruit quality
5. Pruning and training simple and easy to teach
6. Requires minimal labor for training
7. Utilizes natural branch bending to achieve a balance between veg, growth and cropping
8. Adaptable to partial mechanization
9. High yield plus high fruit quality plus low cost of pruning and training = lower cost per box
10. It is fun!
