^^^Bingo! Reach-out forehands (and step-out backhands) are ridiculously useful in the woods.

Buzzz (and Truth, which is similar) have a nicely-shaped rim that (for me, anyway) yields a clean...

That makes perfect sense, actually. Look up "Joe's Flight Chart" at Gotta Go Gotta Throw. XL is rated at power level three, meaning that it takes 225 - 275 feet of "power" for the XL to fly as...

Did some half-arsed putting practice in the snow. Atom holds the line nicely, and seems long for a putting putter. No grip issues, either. I particularly like the Atom for jump putts.

Option 1: Play the shorts to warm up and learn the course, and then play the longs. This is how I prefer to play a new course if time is available.

Option 2: Play the tee that looks most...

I agree with the excellent points made above. Challenging greens make the game more, well, challenging. McBeths death putt at DeLa is a great example.

My favorite challenging greens are where...

On the Maryland boards, it took me a while to figure out "The Cod" and "Wap Wap".

^^^ Yep. Easier to throw a FH anny approach with Theory versus a beaded putter. Theory is understae but I get a clean FH release. Not my first choice for FH, of course.

I am one of the oddballs that does not throw max weight mids. I like drivers in the low-mid 160s, and find that mids in the 167-172 range "feel" like a similar weight when thrown, probably because...

I certainly hope so, because I have two of each on the way. I went with the regular (not soft) Atom, FWIW.

I just went out in the back yard and made 5 out of 6 from 24 feet with no warmup. So 83% is my answer. Nope, no need to gather any more data. Ever. ;)

I fluctuate between 7-9 molds, fewer for casual rounds. My bag only holds about 11 discs total, so it is easy to keep the mold count low. It annoys me to lug around a disc that I rarely if ever throw.

Good choices, other than no DX Teebird. ;) I forgot to mention, but Roc and Comet are a classic midrange combo because they have similar grip and speed. Have fun playing with your new toys!
