We will start out fairly easy on the first "What is This?" picture.  This one is used on all 170/220 models.  Good luck

That was quick!  Yes the are used on all models including the 170V models.  Different lengths for location and model type.

Jan .... send me by email your address and shirt size (US sizes S,M,L,XL, XXL) and I will send a 170/220 logo golf shirt.  Congratulations!

That would be great Jan, but I still want to send another shirt to you since we are just starting up the WIT since a couple of years ago.  I will send another shirt to the winner of the picture you are posting
