My nephew grew up throwing the Squidgee by Aerobee, indoors and out. They're super light and floppy (but not even remtotely PDGA legal). They are about the same diameter as a golf disc.

I'm using Envy/Proxy so much these days that I'm considering taking mids out of my bag. There's not a huge gap (for me) between Envy/Proxy and my speed 7 fairways (Resistor/Rival/Patriot).

I keep most everything at speed 7 or slower. My home course rewards accuracy over distance, and there are only a few pin positions longer than 350'.

I carry a Tern and an Outlaw. Those are the...

I'd be interested in lighter weight (165-170g) speed 9 discs. I have a small stack of lightweight FR volts that I really enjoy. I think an electron volt would bomb.

I've spent the last few years putting (and upshooting) with the same two medium proton Anodes.

I'm giving the Atom a shot for putts. I like the grip of the plastic, but I really like that they're...

For a 15 foot tunnel at 400', I'm throwing an Axis or Proxy off the tee. Then a Proxy for a 100-150ish upshot. I'll be very happy to take a par.

If I'm competing and I need a birdie and there's...

I played my first round in windy/rainy conditions this morning. The Atom performed great. It doesn't lose any grip when wet. It's a little less sensitive to wind than my Anodes are.

This is what I'm doing.

I am loving the Atom for putts. I'm also loving the Proxy for drives/upshots... which is why I'm not worried AT ALL about the durability of electron plastic. My Proxy can...

The Proxy has been overshadowed by the Atom's release, but I feel like Axiom/MVP really have a winner here. I've never hit so much metal from the 100' - 250' range.

I'm throwing Outlaws with my Terns.

A beat Outlaw is a notch more stable than a champ Tern. Outlaws don't take very long to beat in. I'm throwing a 166g 1st run Outlaw. The lightweight Outlaws...

In my limited experience, I've found G* to be overall straighter when compared to star plastic. That is: G* has less turn, and less fade (IMO). I'll use that to my advantage!

Icon Bandits start out a lot like Valks. But as they break in, I've found they lose a lot more HSS than LSS; which (I think) is why they're getting compared to Leopards more than Valks (some turn,...

I've only thrown a G* Mako 3. It's a tick or two more understable (both HSS and LSS) than an Axis.

I haven't thrown a QMS, but a lot of people compare them to the Gauge. I'm familiar with the...

Comet or beat Axis if you can reach it.

If you need a driver, I'd throw a Patriot (like everyone else on this thread). Or a beat Rival (depending on the release angle I want to throw).

If you're looking for a long disc that just holds it's release angle & doesn't fade... give a Rival a shot. Icon or Pinnacle are great. The gummy pinnacles tend to have a bit more fade (as well as...

Terns are great. Star will be too understable for 400' of power, but G* and Champ pair together nicely.
