So were the shallow bends giving you the RR type feel or TB? If I could turn this thing into a RR that would be sweet.

Figured I'd just knock out a Tuning Basics for this one... better than 10 paragraphs.

Any Q's lemme know... feel free to prerube me and/or quote this post in a relevant thread.

Tuning a disc isn't exclusive to the Epic... it's useful on most drivers in premium plastic. This type of tuning is more even and doesn't have the same drastic effects as Epic tuning.

IIRC Epic tuning is about one or more significant flight-altering bends, which look like tree hits. Normal disc tuning like this applies an even treatment all around the rim of the disc, to get a uniform change in PLH.

I never knew you could tune a disc besides the Epic. That looks like it would ruin the disc, but obviously Zam has been doing it with success for a long while now. Pretty awesome stuff.

This was a big craze on DGR a few years ago, and the results can be phenomenal. For instance a Wraith tuned overstable can be a better Teerex than a Teerex. It gets into balancing the resistance factors of a disc.

I did this a lot for people in the store... they lost a beat one and wanted a brand new one, or they wanted new life in a flippy veteran. I'd demonstrate this method, tune it just a tick +/- and let them try the new disc on the driving range, then they'd tune it to taste.

I remember old school guys talking about tuning discs like 10 years ago. This is nothing new.

Yep we used a sparkle red. Tried a few different reds and that one looked the best. You can barely see the sparkle because of the print size but it shows up well on the light above the first run
