As a disc gets roughed up and broken in with dings and scratches on the edge and bead, I can see it losing distance, but is it going to get less stable or more stable?

Less stable. Or more understable depending on your preferred terminology.

Sometimes that can actually help it gain more distance. My champ Teebird which is nicely worn in flies farther than a new one would. More overstable ones will tend to fade out sooner while a "seasoned" overstable disc can stay level longer allowing it to fly farther.

Thanks, yeah I guess staying flat longer would give it more distance. Didn't think of that benefit.

Gonna be a FRIGID 50 degrees here in beautiful Wilmington, North Carolina tomorrow and I'm playing The Castle with some friends for the first time sans shorts. (No homo.) What sort of threads do y'all recommend in chillier weather that offer maximum warmth and breathability whilst still providing good flexibility?

Wear shorts with soccer socks. C'mon man, it's Wilmington. The under armor type shirts are nice too.

Underarmor is key. Got some of that.

I'll be there at The Castle at 1100, Dave. Bringing some beers and a couple friends for a smooth 36, maybe 54 holes. Love if you'd join us.

I'd love to, but unfortunately I'm ~3 hours away in Randolph Co. Get a birdie on hole 11 for me.

Roger. Next time, then.

But a bird on 11? Might as well ask me to **** you Tiffany cuff-links. I suck harder than Lewinsky in the Oval Office.

It can be done. You just need a disc that tracks right and then something like a Zone to skip around the last corner.

Would a hyzer and anhyzer be the same for a LHFH as a RHBH or opposite?
