I heard speed 6 on Notch

Arch is speed 8. Valley is speed 9.

They have been PDGA approved as of this posting, but I haven't reviewed the literature to see if the rumors are true.

Whenever I throw my Summit, I get a lot of oohs and aahs, because people appreciate the line-shaping abilities I have with it. Makes those shorter holes interesting!

A pretty consistent disc for anhyzer throws is the Obex. If I need the Obex to sit-down, then I'll use a slight-anhyzer. The key is to not break your elbow. If you're wrist is over your elbow, then...

Yeah, I think you can use them, but they're not going to be available to the plebeians for a while... oh well, the Trak/Ascent were good enough for me, before the Notch/Arch were in the works. :)

Solace and o-Lace on forehands and overhands

Liking the Solace so far... I have to almost take it out of my bag on certain rounds, so that I don't throw my arm out using it. I can almost use it on any hole on either a forehand or a overhand...

Haven't tried one yet... nose-angle sensitivity can be reduced by increasing your grip. Pinch where the flight-place meets the rim for a nice firm grip! :)

Don't worry about getting a Leopard or a TeeBird. Any speed 6-7 discs are going to be longest discs for a while until you learn proper form mechanics and technique.

I'm getting into the Summit more and more... I ordered another one for the VBB this year. Heavier firm Summit to complement my lighter medium Summit.

A lot of mediocre course designs favor right-handed players. I've known course designers to consciously tailor to LHBH for this reason... compensate for the RHBH bias, that is.

Fair points all-around.

Put the glow Solace on the market-place, and it'll fetch a nice price for a slightly-used premium plastic.

I've found this to be true though: Vibram's putters will never...

I'd pay attention to what plastics you're using and also how usage impacts your discs:

DX - most understable, Champion, so on.

Increasing usage means that discs will become more understable...

According to Vibram, the unLace needs to be thrown at 44 mph for its intended flight. The Trak, by contrast, requires 50 mph.

The difference in stability is the key factor here. I throw all Vibram...

Yeah, I'm a bag-builder at heart, and if he isn't getting the Trak up-to-speed he could piddle with the unLace, which will fly more stable at lower speeds... worth a shot! :)

Ridge and Judge are very comparable in how they look, but I think they fly pretty differently. The Ridge has less glide, I think... both have beads and a shallow profile in the hand.
