Im sorry but I disagree with that completely. Personally I will purposefully not be using the max contracts allowed.

Sure, you don't have to. But more contracts you use, less wiggle room you have for a stop loss. Less contract you use, more time/trades it takes to reach the profit target. So it is a balancing act. It is alright to go big when the gods make the alignment perfect for a particular trade.
In my first Combine I only traded 1 contract and the highest profit I reached was 1200$. Had I traded 2 contracts, I would have made the profit target of 2000$ but I also would have hit the DLL...


Quoting 
Each day will start on 2 contracts and build up depending on the equity built up through the day.

That is a good strategy and I advised it earlier...
