I guess my fr shock was among the more stable of the first runs. I always liked to throw my Avenger on an easy low anny. It would cut right, hold a long straight line before sitting down nicely in the middle of the fairway. It was easy to control and didnt have to try and power up to generate 300+ distance.

This is the shot the fr shock excels at over the volt. While the volt is longer, it just seems easier to predict the placement and fade with the shock.

Idk if its the layoff from not being able to thorw my discs for 6 months, or the air pressure/resistance/lack of humidity or what, but I use to be able to thorw my avengers 350 easily.
But here I'm barely reaching 300ft with anything. I'm barely getting 330 out of my nuke.

The actual disc golf course it suppose to open up this week (if the ground has thawed enough) it will be nice to actually play a couple rounds pitting my shock vs the volt. I have a lot of fresh neutron plastic to try out lol.

The Nati might have one. I could text OB to find out if you didn't want to wait until you got there.

I checked on Thursday, but the PLH on any of them seemed much different than mine. I'll get one later on, I'm more concerned with this latex rubber vibram discs I keep hearing about

It's definitely suited for high power throwers. Or as a noodle's utility disc. Either way it can fill a roll in anyone's bag.

You can put it on the marketplace as a first run and someone will want it.
Just because he isn't hanging out in the MVP thread all day doesn't mean he made an uneducated purchase. MVP has no way to denote the runs if you weren't here following it's every move. Maybe be a little more friendly to the guy who is just coming here looking for some info. No need to be on your high horse.
