The first obstacle's sans when the Spider Walk was the first one is all about making a fast entrance to the course (and if you could Spider Walk fast, it counts for that as well). The Balance Tank is one of the slowest obstacles. Not to mention we've had one person crotch themselves and another become a speed bump and that was on the original.
If someone is going to be an idiot.. I have the right to call them out for what they are. Lord knows everyone does it to me when I do it.

Now, this may sound crazy, but I'd love too see a "shin-vintage" second stage.
start off with the Original spider walk. Moving walls and all. Without a rest, either a shin- double salmon ladder with maybe a bigger jump in between boards or instead of a 4-2 cable, a 3-2 cable? One on each side then one in the middle? throw in a cannon ball run or a gorren hammer (with a faster swing, hell maybe even a combo of gorren+cannonball) before the metal spin and wall lift, got yourself a damned good stage. Slap yourself 80sec time limit on it, golden.

I'm going to get SO much hate for this... but just remove the wall lift. After seeing Ryo just crawl under it, it just shows just about anyone could pass it. Am I the only person who actually liked the Shoulder Walk? That obstacle DEMANDS strength. There is no shortcut.
Something I always imagined on the course replacing the Slider Drop was a Rolling Log that went down the exact same track as the SD. I know it sounds extremely dangerous but if the designers could make it accident free it would be a pretty sweet reincarnation of one of my favorite obstacles. I'd also like to see the designers get a little bit more original like they were from 17-18 and create a new diabolical replacement for the DSL+UB. Finally, either bring back the original Balance Tank or scrap it. It was cool in 24 and now it's just stale as can be. The new "Elastic Spin" is a very nice obstacle and I don't think it should be replaced. It did more than it's share of wipeouts in 27.
