MVP always brings out the light stuff well after the first run. I doubt we will see 150's any time soon, but mid 160's may happen. Just have to be patient.

Bultx -- USPS picks up mid-afternoon, processes evening/over night and they should leave town after that processing, whatever they do and whenever they end it. They're good people to work with (our drivers are *especially* fond of DGers with all the favors they do you/us.. maybe it's the undeniably precious shop dog) and all, but I get the feeling UPS processes a little faster and works a little snappier. Our UPS drivers are freakin stellar as well... had the same guy (even the same substitute!) for at least 2.5 years.

I keep forgetting there are two Zach's.



UPS is worse actually. 3 days on avg and higher cost. Their rural delivery leaves much to be desired as well....though my new guy is doing tons better. May be hope on that front.

When I first started ordering discs from y'all, it was a day and a half to my door for the most part. There were odd two or three day deals due to weather or holidays, etc. But since the PO started complaining about money at the first of this year, most things doubled or tripled in time across the board. Its extremely frustrating that I can mail a package to Oregon and have it beat one going to Austin. Happens way too many times to be a fluke. Oh well...nothing to be done about it but either wait or drive to Austin...which we did last Saturday. You guys at DN have always treated me extremely well. The post office, not so much.

I think they provide more than enough information for consumers to make informed decisions.
+1. One of the first things I learned when joining this site was that flight ratings are somewhat arbitrary. Discs fly different for different players depending on power etc.

I recognize that the above is typed with sarcasm and it even made me chuckle (not quite out loud), but I figured I'd make sure everyone is clear that the Vibram Disc Golf speed numbers are the ideal launch speed of the discs.

Speed, at least in our rating system, is a relative number so that you can compare which Vibram discs will work for your arm speed.

I love living less than 6 hours away. I ordered my Volts about 2 yesterday, and will get them around 2 tomorrow. I'm immediately going to throw one of them into a brick wall a few times to change it's flight a little, then throw them both and give you guys some sort of feedback for a 300-350 thrower.
