It's crazy when you look at the tournaments he's played so far this year. With the exception of the Memorial and St. Jude where he placed second in both, he's won every tournament he's entered. Just...

Same here.

I'm loving these discs for huge hyzers and anhyzers, but I'm not throwing them for hyzer flip distance like I do my Destroyers because I'm not used to throwing a 150 class disc like...

I decided to throw my Photon a bit in the field after a round yesterday, and the results were pretty surprising.

I'm really dialing in on these discs. I had a hard time at first with the lighter...

I played a round with the Photons (154g and 164g) on a longer, more open course (all 27 at Token Creek). There are many 400' + and 500' holes on this course, and it was very windy today (gusts of 25...

The "game changer" part is the fact that MVP can mold these down into lower weights and still get a consistent flight pattern with healthy fade at the end of the flight. I think that is pretty...

I threw two Photons today, a 154g and a 164g. They were both surprisingly overstable - no turn whatsoever unless I was throwing with a little wind.

I expected them to be more like seasoned...

I have a King in the bag - it is extremely understable. Even with a big tailwind, I have to hyzer flip it to give it even a chance to go straight. It's the disc I can get to flip high in the air, so...

That's a bummer dude.

I've got some extra star Destroyers I bought a year or so ago that are pretty beefy. I've also got two champs with the DX stamp I bought about a year or so ago too. Or maybe...

I have my gripes about the city's handling of the courses. If I recall correctly, there was a bit of a shakeup when the person who was in charge of the courses quit. As I understand it, he got disc...

The top courses being private has nothing to do with them being both top courses and pay to play. The fact remains: top courses are pay to play, private or otherwise.

One of the best things about this sport is that it's free? Is that really what you think? Because I can name many things about this sport that rank in front of the fact that it is free to play.

I think Giants do come out more OS than you're looking for. Perhaps a King would be more suitable for you if you want to try out some Westside.

Totally. Most people don't even know it's possible to throw that kind of line. I love to show off the power of Comet control to unsuspecting chuckers.

Agreed.

I also don't think the Zone is a good disc for cycling. It's too much of a utility mold, and I think you'd just be shoehorning the disc into that role.
