"What is the most false method treble dodging major method that can be
produced (with a true plain course)?
What is the most false method that can be used to get a peal length?
What is the most false method yet rung?"

Not sure really - I'm sure Richard Smith or PABS will be able to answer
more fully.

If anyone knows about dubious treble-dodging major methods though, it's
Derek Sibson.  I think he had a lot of difficulties in finding a peal
composition for Jesus College Surprise Major
(&3-5.6.5-2.36.4-2.3-36.4.3, 2 (f) ABDLOUcd).  This method was first
rung in PABS' 23-spliced composition described on

As a couple of new examples with lots of groups, the untitled method
&34-3.6- (mx) has ABCDFIKLR falseness. Similarly,
the mx method 3456- has ABDEPRUa falseness.  I
imagine getting a peal composition of either of these two methods would
be somewhat tricky.  I'm sure others can come up with some better
