Shortly after I started in the game, a hot new disc hit the market: The Wraith. It's stairstepped from there. There's obviously a huge difference between an Orc and a Boss. That's changed the game...

I saw a clip one time of a guy taking a brand new CE Eagle out of the plastic bag and on first throw hitting a tree maybe 80' out and it shattered into about 7 pieces. Not good.
