Too late to edit again.

www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ibsd0dD1y0&t=3m30s 3 holes back to back thrown FH off the tee.

Full screen these and it's a lot easier to follow the disc, especially the dark purples.

Mike, was that flutter off your last drive there?!?!

My hero, how could you fail me like this?

Jokes aside. Loving my 175 soft anode. Need to get another one and possibly a medium in brighter colors to start working with it in drives. Maybe its my eyes, but this "blue - aka navy" is almost black to me and hard to find once I'm in the woods for anything but putts. Love putting with it so far though, so the hatred of the color is a moot point

There are many things that are going to contribute to the stability of a disc. Design profile, environmental factors (wind), weight, weight distribution, etc.
translation = i can't add things, and i have no idea what contributes to stability of a disc.

One thing that I am really starting to hate about the Anode is how it handles pure head and pure tailwinds. It isn't a stability issue, it is a range issue. The Anode for some reason seems to have more drag than any other disc I have thrown. When I throw it into a head, I have to assume a loss of up to 50'. I have been pushed out an extra 75' without warning by a tail.

I guess it isn't really a complaint, cuz in the end it is up to me to make the corrections. It is just not a correction I am accustomed to making and I am doing a poor job of it.

I do not know, I was getting some really nice and controlled 260 foot shots on Sunday despite a very strong headwind. It took some good hyzer to throw straight, but I was getting it out there.

My bread and butter Anode shot is #13 at Acorn. Throw it high, flat, about 75%, parked. Headwind and I am 40 short. Today in a tailwind I was in #14's fairway down the path from the green. I'm not saying that you can't throw an Anode into or with wind, I just can't gauge what the wind will put my D at.

I'm assuming your extensive playing experience makes you a subject matter expert then?

Fair enough. I was parking Hole 6 at Wabun which I believe is 260 feet. Normally I go at it with a mid, but we were playing putters only.

Can't quite see the deformity at the anode stamp but the ripples are visible. The discs were in an envelope but they were delivered to my front door (not jammed in my mailbox).
