Are you still on the Tracer/Jade? I'm looking at getting a Jade for my Tracer and would be curious to know your thoughts and setup info if you are or remember how it was.

Hey Jeff, I enjoyed your analysis on YouTube. I've been looking at the Patrol lately, but am intrigued by a Smuggler setup similar to yours. Does the basic Monarch get overwhelmed? Would the Smuggler benefit from a M+ or a Float X, while still retaining the characteristics you spoke so highly of?
