What's the lowest rated player that was better than Climo in 2002?

Very cool use of that algorithm, btw!

Thinking about it more, I think I've had more experience with Pro plastic having sudden flight changes with damage than DX. With Pro it always seemed like the changes were discreet jumps and with DX...

That's my experience, too. There's an initial break in that happens relatively quickly, but they stay in the sweet spot a long time. I don't actually mind my discs flying farther and being easier...

My understanding is that the mold has been tweaked a lot over the years and the runs from the last few years are some of the most overstable. The ones I've thrown have all been a bit older so...

When a DX Teebird beats in it requires a hyzer flip to fly straight. Even then it requires a pretty clean (OAT free) throw. If a beat DX Teebird turns just the tinyest bit too much it will likely...

It's somewhere in that range for most if their x-step is decent. It doesn't sound like much, but there's a pretty big difference between 300' and 360' or 350' and 425'.

It's probably a bit more...

That's my guess. I don't believe it's possible to control spin on a drive like that, either. The only way to really know if you're affecting the amount of spin you get is by actually measuring it. ...

It depends on what you mean by "arm speed." Are you talking about the initial speed of the disc?

It's absolutely possible to throw the same distance with different ratios of spin to speed.

As a side note, fade at the end of the flight is good. Discs that fade reliably tend to be much easier to "range" (throw a specific distance" and are more forgiving if you turn them over a bit too...

It's hard to be positive, but starting your pull too early can lead to the disc to go right like that, sometimes called "griplock." Strangely, it usually isn't grip. One of the most common reasons...

I stopped after a while, too. There was one instance where I could have gotten a disc back but I probably would have had to pay shipping, so I didn't worry about it.
