Second, what a super cool thing to have happen, picking up a disc that belongs to Ken Climo!?!?! I have heard that he is super nice and all and a great ambassador for the sport.
you forgot ginormous ears!

In my bag my Valk is my longest disc. I don't have a huge arm, so would the Groove help me or hurt me?

I think you would like the Groove. I can throw it with much more control than my Boss or Destroyer. It wouldn't be a tough transition from a Valk.

Hmmm...I might just look into one. At our local tournaments we usually have people selling discs, and I might pick one up

The trick will be getting enough behind it to make the disc do its thing. The high speed of the disc requires a lot more snap than the Valk. However if you can get the snap it should make a huge difference.

Midnightbiker, I wouldn't get a groove. If you don't have that big of an arm it might still be a little too fast of a disc. Try something like a beast or monarch, they're still stable and a little faster. The monarch even has the same "groove" as the groove.

What was the weight of KC's disc that you found?

Looks like 171g? or 174g? or 175?

After looking at the picture again I would guess 172g.
