My recommendations would be a trifecta OS, straight, US.

I think the Jade might be the ticket. For me it flies like a longer Leopard.

I find a Z Hornet is a very workable stable to over stable mid, and a great compliment to my Buzzz.

Have you tried the Axiom Insanity? Might be a great addition to your MVP/Axiom bag. Long and workable US disc.

In my late 40s, met, fell in love, and eventually married a Deadhead. As a couple of "hippies" one day we were trying to play catch with a cheap promotional "frisbee". It sucked so I bought us a...

I joined a few years ago, but only for a year. I played enough PDGA events to get a rating, a kind of personal benchmark. But after that year I have rarely played a PDGA event so I really have no...

I carry 2 to 4 Fairways.

ALways a 150g Champ Leo & 150g Champ Banshee. Over and under stability taken care of.

Usually a 150ish GL Jade. Sometimes a 150g DX Teebird. And most recently a...

No need to clean. My discs go stright from the bag to my hand to the basket. They never touch the ground and so therefore they don't get dirty.

Offend away! Funny is funny. And those are funny. If anyone gets butt hurt over such little jokes then they need to grow up quite a bit.

I have to say I was particularly lucky in my rehab as well. My PT had a student finishing his "internship" before graduating. Not only was he a disc golfer, but he was a lefty who threw LHFH!

I answered 1. A 150g DX Teebird. But I don't always carry it. I'm just not enamored with the feel of DX. So a 150ish GL Jade is as likely to fill that spot as the TB.

That may be it. Try taking a little off and see if that helps. Another "solution" may be a more OS disc. While it may resist crashing and burning it won't fix the technique flaw that has seemed to...

The Atlas. And it would be my recommendation. I keep one in my bag for just that reason. More forgiving than a Comet. And it holds a straight line for distance into a headwind. I'm not a fan of...

I guess its my, "legend in my own mind" mentality. Ace!

I hear the roar of the crowd every time; even when I'm playing a solo round.
