Why do all the top soldiers use the original?

This is something I've noticed a lot lately, especially at lans for the first place teams. Like at rewind and i61, both the top soldiers of the first place teams used the original and b4nny also used the original.

I understand that the original shoots from the center of the screen instead of from the right side like stock, but I thought this just made it come down to preference. Can someone please educate me on why all these top players use the original? Is it for consistency or better spam angles or what?

i have been noticing a trend of increased usage of the original, especially with players switching to it. i.e. botmode, b4nny, kaptain, TLR at i58, etc

left rocket jumps are easier, and i feel like it's much harder to hear, so it's easier to jump people without them noticing right away

It's just personal preference. And I think it's a good weapon overall.

I don't think that's the reason you've been missing rockets all these years.

Guys i just tested it in a pug, here is my analysis:

logs: http://logs.tf/1824598#76561198075312767

Original Theory

As you can see the original got 26 frags which was the 3rd most on the pug, however my damage is a little low. I would recommend using this weapon if your dpm is solid but you arent getting the frags you deserve. Clearly the original has more last hit potential but the base damage must be lower, its the only way i can explain myself not top damaging this pug.
