This is awesome. I've been looking for a reason to post this pic. Wasn't my shot, but still a good one. Not sure how it didn't hit basket at least.

Major reason is higher speed drivers have a sharper edge on their wing. Think lawn dart vs. baseball.

Also, because their rims are wider, there is more mass at the (sharper) edge to drive into the turf. Think of pounds per square inch for a woman in spike heels vs. the same woman wearing Chuck Taylor's.

I had a zone tombstone yesterday which is weird because zones are the opposite of sharp rimmed. It was muddy though.

GL Trident on a super spike hyzer. Would have been cooler if it was facing the right way.

Been playing a week and two days...just proud when they go in the general, intended direction, but thought these were funny enough to take a pic of, unaware there was a name for it until I saw this thread
