I have to disagree with you Rob...
There are two types of cortadas....the 'finesse' cortada (Castro I anyone?) and the power cortada. Agree with you (and Mich) about the finesse shot.
But there is no substitute for the hardest, most well placed power cortada. When Goico nails it forget it. This is not a desperation cortada (Patrick...Azpiri) this is a "you are done" cortada.>
I will take Goicos cortada over Arriagas or Rekaldes ANY day.
