Default 2nd phase

I love how many phases they have to have here; it's why it takes so long and so much money to get something passed. Anyway, for those of us who already have fusion or want this disc for more than one level even w/out fusion can't get it! Why don't they have a separate trial for people in our group? That way we don't interfere with "their numbers".

Default Trials

They are hard to get into, and once you enroll, you do not know if you are going to get the fusion or the disc.

If you can afford it, go to Germany and get the M6, be done with it.
