Here is the midrange (Claymore, 174):


Here is the putter (Shield, 175):


And that is not a crack in the putter, this plastic used on the putter scratched up easily. It's not performance altering scratching, it's like a surface scratch.
Not too bad on your color combos , better than all the doo-doo browns I have seen.

Hey everyone. I've posted a trade thread in the MP but I'm looking for another claymore. If anyone didn't like theirs, let me know.

Also the perk add ons were kind of blah.
Haha, I saw that pic and for a split second thought "What?! He got a clear Trilogy disc?!" Then I realized it was the mini.

Quick review

Thief: Ok fairway driver. Flew like my well seasoned stalker.
Claymore: Flew like a new buzz
Shield: Money! Loved it. I liked the soft grippy feel of the plastic and how overstable it was. It has a serious chance to find its way into my bag as my main putter replacing my wizards. This is coming from someone who LOVES wizards.

Our trilogy challenge was fun. Won by 10 strokes and enjoyed the winners pack. Traded a few to my friend who just got picked up on the new Lat 64 team and still have a few. Giving the bag to my gf.

My review for the discs I received during the Trilogy Challenge at Micke Grove Park in Lodi, CA:
(Keep in mind that I have only been playing since August and this was a new experience for me)

Thief - I really enjoyed throwing this disc. It was a welcomed change from the normal discs I throw; Sidewinder, Tern and Leopard. It flew nice and straight for me.

Claymore - This is a disc that will remain in my bag from now on. I loved throwing this and I usually do not throw a mid too many times during my play. I flew nice and straight wherever I wanted it to go.

Shield - Nice putter, but it will not be replacing my Rhino or Magnet in my bag. Grippy feel that was nice and I know most people playing enjoyed them.

I did shoot a +6 (60) for the day and it was nowhere close to the -9 (45) that was the winner's total. They did have a nice junior division, for those 14 and under. All in all it was a nice and pleasureable experience. Next up for me is the June 21st Lake Amador Trilogy Challenge.

Haha, you weren't alone. I was a bit jealous at first, then I realized it was a close up of the mini.

I enjoyed the event. Was disappointed the turn out as there were only 26 players and that they didn't have the "extras". But the perk was we got to play a round with great company and got 3 new discs out of it.
Review of the discs in my opinion:
I liked the Thief, understable/stable disc that was easy to control and get 300' out of with an easy throw. Had an ace blow out of the chains on a 267' hole that needed some shaping.
The midrange reminded me of a Roc or Buzzz. Threw similar for me.
The putter... way to hard. Not very grippy and didn't "grab" the chains like my SSS Magic. Had 2-3 putts fall out because the disc was too hard for a fast spin putt not dead center in the chains.
Overall had fun and a new way to check out new plastic...
