Maybe I missed something important, it was full of stuff I didn't quite grasp. But is it possible that the benefits of static stretching outweight the short term negatives?
No idea, but bear in mind that they were only stretching the muscle and not the joint areas, and that may make a big difference in that respect; normally when we stretch, we tend to involve joints. In the link, study, however, I seem to recall they only concentrated strictly on muscle stretch with no joints involved. Just something to consider.

Great disussion, Thanks 5Kg. It's fun discussing this stuff with mature people that don't get "out-of-sorts" when somebody has a different view.

I will definitely research it more, I'm not really tied to one idea or the other.

I do some static stretches prior to training and it seems to help quite a bit. Granted the stretching is only held to 2-3 five second holds on whatever is feeling tight; most often this is my shoulders and hamstrings. If something isn't pretty tight, I won't stretch it.

If a muscle is tight, I don't think stretching that area out moderately prior to training will be all that bad, rather can help get that body part into the proper position when moving the bar/weight. I do suspect stretching to much or stretching muscles that are already loose/limber can have a negative effect on one's stretch reflex and stability with heavier loads -- an issue that seems to be very common for folks with hyper-mobility.

My 2 cents anyway...
