well, i got a 173 GL and a 165 Opto. The Opto is more stable right now, but the GL got a little puddletopped during shipping in the heat wave last week. Prime Discs didn't put anything between the discs and they suctioned together in the tight envelope.

So i turned it upside down and left it in the sun-light for a day and it flattened out. Flies more understable than the Opto.

actually I got three (one was for prerube). But they slipped the receipt in between his and my opto, so no damage done to his.


(and no i didn't throw HIS brand new saint first. That's bad karma)

Really gave them a workout today on a course where long accuracy is a most. The Saints are long but really showed off that on long lines they have absolutely zero LSS. My TeeBirds were easily out performing them. Yesterday on a tighter course were accuracy is more important than distance, the competition was about even, but today the TeeBirds easily trumped. After more and more throws I am seeing the Saint as more of a TL than anything else.

that doesn't sound bad, i can dig a long controllable disc with little LSS. if i need some fade i can always throw a pd.

The all-day warmup trick to get a disc back to shape is right-side up. Upside down and you're forcing flatness onto the disc. Always right-side up. Can't tell you how many thousands of unsellable discs were un-warped and restored to perfect condition that way at Millennium.

Okay thanks. I don't mind the flat middle. It still has the domey shoulder so all is well
