Default Love at first throw?

Have you ever bought a new disc (altogether new, not a replacement, not a disc you've tried before, but completely brand spanking new to your hands) taken it out and on the very first throw, realize that it was absolutely made just for you?

I was at Dick's Sporting Goods to buy a kickstand for my bike and couldn't resist perusing the disc selection, and I came across a bright yellow star mako3. Despite having just purchased a champ mako3 which hasn't been delivered yet, I was so intrigued by the extremely flat top and it was right there in the weight class I wanted and I liked the color... So I bought it.

Right off the #1 tee, this thing went laser beam straight, right where I assumed it; that 0/0 turn/fade rating is no joke.

I like all of my discs, but this was love at first throw. Did you ever have a disc like that?

I got a Harp on a whim while in MN at GGGT. They had just come out and Eric had been talking it up in the DGAM I had listened to on the plane.

I had decided that on this trip I would bring no discs and just pick up 4-5 at GGGT. I didn't have my OS mid a Tachyon at the time, so I tried to flick the Harp on this hole at the Brickyard that goes over a gorge with a guarded pin.

It held up to my slightly tenitive oaty throw and parked the hole.

I wore the course out with mostly that and a beat to piss Firebird.

Really good disc that has been in my bag since that day.

That's the way my Suspect was to me. I actually found it in a field with no name or number on it. Threw it in the bag and tossed it during the round. It ended up being my most thrown disc that round. Now I bag a fresh and beat on in my bag at all times.

Default Comet

Bought a box of discs and took them all out to a field to try them out. Nearly every disk except putters take me time to learn. The Comet flew exactly where I wanted on the first throw and pretty much has continued to do so for me. Have hit multiple 100+ foot putts with it and is the only disc that just felt right from the very first throw.

Not first throw, but I have 2 discs that I bought, took to a course, and aced the second hole (different discs, different courses). They are both winners in my book. (Cryztal Sparkle Zone that I bought in person from maansmit, and a PIAS Prodigy Proto M3)

Yep. I felt that way with the Star TL, when I first picked it up, then first threw it. The Star TL is still in my bag.

I also felt that way about the proto DX Colt.

A few, being a bit of a disc junkie, have felt right the first time I threw them.
In no particular order:
QMS
Lucid Renegade
Gstar Mamba
Pro Destroyer
XT Colt
Prodigy 400 P4
Last, and most special, P-line PD
