I throw Predators and Eagles for my fairways. I carry 3 Eagles, all Eagle-Ls. Brand new, the Eagle acts a lot like my beat Predators, but with a little less LSS, so it fades a little less. But...

I would compare the OAT forgiveness of the Roc3 to a Z Buzzz. That good. I've turned both of mine over, but it's always an angle or wind issue. It's never the OAT-fluttering-wobble-over that...

I like all the ___3 molds. My mid lineup right now is Glow Roc3, slighly beat Champ Roc3, Make3, beat DX Roc.

The Mako3 is a ton of fun to throw.

Yeah, I might not go that far. But I do see the Breaker as a shallower, and therefore slightly faster, Rhyno. Not quite midrange fast though. I guess it's kind of a tweener. Flight is about...

Just wanted to mention that I picked up an F3 from the FlyMart at Worlds, and while I haven't yet thrown it, the plastic is unbelievable. Best plastic I've ever felt as far as I'm concerned.

Good call.
I misspoke/mistyped? there. I was thinking of the first couple holes that are within my range. And I'm by no means a pro.

Indeed not, sir. But if everything were played as par 3, he still would have finished -2 on an 8700 ft, mostly wooded course.

I'm interested to see how they do on White. I think they'll tear...

They elongated the first 9 holes or so of the normal white course, then carved the back out of fresh property. I like the white course least of the three the pros are playing. It's still a great,...

I live 30 min from Lemon Lake. I played Gold twice this weekend in the world's layout. I don't understand how someone can shoot -12. There are zero "cheat the line with power" holes. There is a...

Don't mean to thread jack, but Roc3 is pretty similar to what you're describing.

I bought a glow champ x-out wraith a while back that looked like they stacked weights on top of it while it cooled. Flat as a board, and the inner rim where you grip was compressed into a concave...

I was dealing with your exact situation late last season, OP.

I see your point. Faster drivers are "sharper". But the point of contact on a speed 10 disc isn't going to be much larger than a speed 13. The measure that determines the speed of the disc is the...

Looks like it'd be worth a shot.

My only worry would be that once your hands got wet or sweaty, the hydrophobic coating would become handrophobic.

I'm not an MVP fanboy, I only own one of their discs. But it's annoying to see this for the same reason it's annoying to see a McDonalds open shop next door to your favorite mom & pop diner.
