Does experience count here?

So which all-star has the most experience in an all-star or postseason format? Well, there are two anglers in the field who have competed in all four postseason/all star formats that B.A.S.S. has used in the past four years — Kevin VanDam and Skeet Reese. Edwin Evers, Mike Iaconelli, Aaron Martens and Gerald Swindle have all been to three of these smaller field events. Ott DeFoe, Todd Faircloth, Randy Howell and Terry Scroggins have each been to two. Only two all stars (Brent Chapman and Matt Herren) are “rookies” in this format. Does that make a difference? Probably. After all, being comfortable in your circumstances and the system that is All-Star Week has to be worth something.
