I was talking more about people who were thinking that it would make sense to use this for making backups or selling discs or something. There's no way you could compete with injection molded discs,...

But "faster" may still be hours. Injection molding is more like seconds or minutes. My guess is something like a disc would take overnight to make on the type of 3D printer a regular person could...

3D printing is slow, too. My understanding is that it would take hours to make a disc. They only call it "fast prototyping" because it take a month or two and thousands of dollars to get an...

I haven't kept up with all of the latest drills, but the "Secret Technique" aka "Hammer pound" drill is a great place to start. They center around learning what it feels like to really "hit it"...

Throwing hyzers with faster discs is a pretty common way to increase consistency. It's just an easier shot. In practice, throwing those slower discs to see what you can do and to verify what the...

That's true, but 75-100% on a hyzer or on a low line will give you less distance. If you need, or want, either of those lines then you'll be throwing a faster disc just as far as you can throw a...

I find they overlap. There are distances where I could throw either a mid or a fairway and what I choose depends on the line.

I usually throw new discs over water. They're easier to replace and don't fly as well.

The Demon is similar to a Drone. I find that discs like the Whippet and Blaze can do everything that they can and more. More specifically, it's easier to "range" with the Whippet and Blaze than it...

The Blaze is another good choice. It's similar to the Whippet but more widely available in higher end plastic.

I'm not sure what the problem is. Stepping forward after a drive is usually considered a good thing.

Actually he said "turn at the end of the flight."

You made up the 350' requirement.

Getting a disc to turn late like that is much easier if you are able to overpower the disc. I find the later...

I'll second this. You'll want each hole to reward you with gaining a stroke for shooting well and penalize you with losing a stroke for shooting poorly. You probably won't get both on every hole...

I'll point out that what I'm saying is a combination of speculation and what I remember reading years ago. I'm just filling in some gaps that explain why there wasn't a Pro Eagle-X or a Pro...

That's why I said "many" and not "all." The Eagle-X is much closer to a Teebird, which turned out horribly in Pro, than it is to a PD. IIRC, they didn't make Firebird-X's in Pro, either, only FL's,...

My understanding is that many 'X' molds don't turn out well in Pro plastic. So there's a decent chance that what you think a Pro Eagle-X would be like is not very close to what an actual Pro Eagle-X...

Last I heard, base line Millennium plastic actually is Pro plastic. That could be outdated information, though.

X from Discraft is similar, too. I think it's superior but I also find that...

I'm not sure about that specific plastic/run, but as others have said it's a fast, very overstable driver that breaks in really well. If you don't find a use for it as-is, try tuning it. You can...

That sounds pretty high to me, especially considering that the molds aren't all that complex. I'd believe the $20k-$30k estimates, though.

An Eagle in Champ/Star plastic might be a good starting point. It's OK if it's a bit too fast for you because the relative air speed will be higher in a headwind and they'll penetrate into the wind...

I'm not very familiar with Whippets, but every description I've ever read of them makes me think they fly very similarly to a Blaze.
