The closest I've found to the feel of a Pure but more overstable is the Premium Jokeri.

Because of JMeresmaa and his work to grow the sport. Really. Disc Golf in Finland wouldn't be where it is now if it wasn't for him.

I haven't seen or thrown all the other discs mentioned in this thread, but I'd say first run Premium Respecti deserves a mention. I saw a big arm throw it on an anhyzer, it flexed out, and faded so...

Ah. For some reason I always thought PD2 was max rim width, but you're right they are not. 2.4cm rim on PD2, so 0.1cm below maximum. Wider than Destroyer though, Destroyers have 2.2cm rims according...

You might also try PD2. I know some people who bomb and swear by the PD2. For a power thrower, P-PD2 flips a bit and is the longest one, while C- and S-lines are more overstable. Last summer when we...

DX Gazelle (approved 1994)

I stopped going to tournaments.
I stopped trying to improve.
I stopped caring about bad shots and missed putts.
I found the fun in playing again.

Of course, it was free, and I don't think many would have paid to spectate even here.

So I went to the local disc store to get some of their last 1.2 QOLFs. I generally don't like white discs and that's why I haven't bought them earlier, but since I like the 1.2s more than 1.3s, and...

160g DX Zephyr. I usually use it for warm up catching, but sometimes I also throw it during a round just for fun. And it's surprisingly effective for various short shots, as long as there's not too...

Try this:
vAV8kKURKaw

I had the same problem with my power grip, then I found this grip, and I've been very happy how my mids and putters feel and fly since.

Sinus AP here. I used to throw VPs, but the Sinus has more comfortable grip, especially for forehands. And comes in brighter colors. And is cheaper to replace.

And among the people that qualified was Juho Parviainen from Oulu, Finland! His throw was 594'. Awesome to see our local cannon-arm to make it into the showcase :)
