I want a weapon that can Pyro tennis and last in a fight... Albeit in an unorthodox way.

Can the demoman get his own versions of the gardener and the mantreads, then? Perhaps in the form of the bootlegger and the scottish handshake?

Nope.
195 airborne only crit
Vs.
185 regular attack

Hmmm.

Hmmm.
185 attack only occurs once, and nearly kills you in the process.
Think about it.

The crit works always when you're in the air, and does not hurt you.

Caber deals 100 points of self damage, minus any shield bonus. I realize that if you're doing air melee combat you won't have a shield, but unless he is quick, the Soldier is going to crater when he lands. He's got 15 health left to your 75. You'll land and live.

Also, if you got your swing in first, he's going to be sailing away, unable to retaliate.

Bottom line: whoever hits first is going to win.

So...you're in favor of it then?
Sorry, I honestly can't tell from this post if you're agreeing with me or rejecting my idea.

(In case you aren't, fall damage is likely to take a nasty chunk out of your already weakened health if you use the caber, if not outright killing you.)

With 75 health remaining, a lethal fall takes place at 1280 Hammer units and further. To give you a comparison, the 2fort sniper decks are approximately 1030 units apart.

Unless you're airdueling on a map with a huge skybox, I think you'll be alright.
