"Whilst the 4536278 course of Superlative is very good, I can't help feeling that having 7 consecutive leads of it in a peal is a bit like eating an entire packet of Jaffa cakes (or any other confectionary treat) in one go. A personal preference perhaps, but it would be nice to see it split up into at least 2 bits across a couple of parts so that indigestion doesn't occur"

Oh dear, I fear we're on different wavelengths (again). The reason the 65432 course of Superlative is so good is not just that you get runs before and after every halflead and every leadend, but also that you get all the different types of runs in the same course (8765s, 7654s, 6543s, 5432s etc).  It's not like eg find 5 consecutive bobbed / singled leads of Bristol Major where you can feel a bit sickly.  Quite the opposite with Superlative mega-tittums - you need the whole course in one go to be dazzled and fully appreciate the effect.

But enough of personal preferences - I'm keen on more compositions coming... (and thanks for all the suggestions so far)
