Haslet is not much of a course, but playing there sure taught me how to play in the wind!

The wind was freaking insane yesterday evening. I lost a new Discmania S PD at Arcadia in Ft. Worth on hole 17 the "disc eater". The disc is somewhat unique in that it's a factory second from the...

Heh, the first advise I received on this forum almost two years ago ....."Avoid the bending unit at all costs". LOL

BB Owen is a very compact course and plays quickly, you should have time for all 18. Take a map the first time you go, the layout on the front nine can be frustrating.

Welcome Mark. I'm in Rowlett too. The Buzzz was one of my first four discs that I started with, along with my putting putter (SS Omega), a Challenger for approaches and my first driver a JLS. ...

I gave up on the DX 'bird about six or eight months ago because it kept turning too much at unexpected times. My form has since improved and I bet I could give it another chance. DX 'birds go...

For me a Super Stingray or ABC'c The Mission was a lot like a Z Comet. Nothing I've tried matches my X Comet, however.

I seldom go for the "big" hyzer as I just don't have the arm. Straight up the gut is my usual M.O. for drives. However, for upshots I almost always get better results if I have room for a hyzer...

How did I miss this post. I could totally rock that bag, with my substitution of the mentioned X Comet and of course my putter of choice (SS Omega). I already bag and love the other two discs...

Definitely less. I have a seasoned X Comet that is a right turning machine, but doesn't try to find the ground. It just turns and glides. I don't bag a Z Comet any more. I use a seasoned X Buzzz...

Classic Roc for short, always. Never played the longs here, but I'd guess an X Buzz or a Pro Leopard for the long tee.

It wasn't today but on my most recent round I broke well into the low 900's (DGCR SSE) for the very first time. Also won $30 from my buds!

I'm comfortable throwing a Pro Gazelle into about a 10 mph headwind at that power or a little more. I would think a Star would handle 15 or so, but have no personal experience with it.

I haven't had any problem with lighter discs turning over in a headwind as long as they are sufficiently (over)stable, but I find that they don't stay in the fight as long as a heavier disc. They...

I haven't thrown a 1.29 PLS but my 175g 1.25 MPLS is very similar to my 171g Pro Leo. The Leo will probably have more turn than your 1.29 the way you describe it. Neither my DX nor Pro Leo display...

In my round today I was reminded what I love about my X Comet. I can rip it high, hard and clean and it turns dependably hard, but no "turn and burn" ........only turn and glide!!!

If you like the Polaris LS, go with a heavier one. I love my 175 PLS. Nothing else in my bag is so effortless.

For unusual brands that might work, a DGA undertow in SP-line plastic. My furthest...

Slow, my experience is the same but about 30 feet behind you. My putters max out at 250, my mids are where your putters are, fairways where your mids are and my distance drivers mirror your fairways.

I love teeing off with my Z Buzzz, that thing is just like a shorter teebird .........dead straight with fade (and sometimes some skip). My "two disc rounds" are usually with that one and an X Comet.

My son finally coaxed me into trying Leopards a few months ago. The Pro and DX leo I bag now improved my game markedly.
