Default Your Thought's on the "Express" wedge

Ever since it's debut at the Venetian and The Palazzo week on Wheel, how do you feel about the Express wedge do you like it or do you think it's WAAAAAY to "ball-hog" worthy?

share your thoughts and opinions about it here

until then!

I actually like the wedge! I think it should stay on the wheel for the first three rounds and not just for one round.

...Maybe in Season 32 in Fall 2014 LOL!!!

but anyway, If you think about it and this maybe a silly comparison mind you but The Express Wedge is kind of like an Endurance test of sorts, It's a kind of test where you can keep going until you know the solution to the puzzle or if you screw up once, you would not get the reward you want after all that hard work you know what I'm mean!

After 16 or 17 seasons of the Jackpot wedge, it was high time to get something fresh instead. My only gripe is that it is available only during Round 3, which is also the Prize Puzzle round. I'd like to see Round 1 be the Prize Puzzle, Round 2 remain the Mystery Wedge Round, and Round 3 be the "Express" round, otherwise, someone could truly run away with the game in round 3, making Round 4 (Speed Up Round 80% of the time) almost anti-climactic.

I actually like Wheel Of Fortune's Express Wedge because it gives the contestants a chance to pick as many correct letters as they like as long as they don't choose incorrect letters. If I was playing Wheel Of Fortune and I landed on the Express Wedge I would win the round easy as pie

I think the Express Wedge is a good addition to the game. It brings drama and suspense as the contestant tries to complete the puzzle but there is also a risk of bankruptcy if a wrong letter is chosen. It also reminds me of the Fast Forward category on The Joker's Wild where a contestant can answer as many questions they can and possibly win the game bust a wrong answer returns their score to the starting amount.
