I've got a couple of unthrown tournament stamped Cryztal Z Challengers from the 2004 Big Valley Challenge (May 29-30) lying around, and picked up a blue first run (long since retired) from Angry Old Discraft Pro at the '04 Tarheel Tournament (April 17-18), so they had to be out prior to that.

We had some ghost stamped for the last Supertour I ran which was October of 2003.

What are your thoughts on the Banger? I've been trying many different putters to find one that sticks. Today I picked up a Z Banger and fell in love.

I love the banger! But i only use it as my throwing and approach putter. It is too deep of a rim for my taste for putting

I'm finding I love the bangers for jump putts, approaches and drives. Not my favorite putting putter. Also decided to pick up an x comet and all I can say is DAMN. What a rad disc. Does anything you ask it to plus I love that it tells me if I'm throwing well or not.

Hello from a Swedish fan!

I have finished reading the entire thread while awaiting the spring and more disc golf friendly weather. I have a few questions about your throwing motion and spin. Do you actively extend your wrist in the throw or do you just keep it loose and let it whip out on its own? Is it the same weather you are throwing comet, driver or the banger?

I’ll be doing the spin-disc-at-ceiling exercise to see if that helps and to improve my spin and also putting distance.

I would like to get some more distance on my shots. Mostly on my midrange and putter. I throw fairway drivers 300 feet max, midrange 260 and putters 230. I throw standstill but have been told I have good distance and snap for standstill. I practice the x step from time to time but so far I only see similar distance and worse accuracy.

Oh, and the distances are golf distances on low and strait shots. I prefer throwing straight at the target. For some reason I always throw worse in field practice than on the course. I guess I get obsessed with distance without a basket to aim for :-)

Finally just some comet love. I have mostly used it on a short but very downhill hole and it just flies so straight with a bit of flip when throwing really slow, smooth and downhill. Other discs, even putters, easily fall out long to the right if not thrown hard. The only other disc I have had success with on this hole is the rattler. I'm looking forward to a season with the comet at my short wooded home course!

By the way, how do you like the rattler? I'm amazed with how straight and nonflippy it is. But I guess if I could putt like you I wouldn’t bother with it either

MJ, can you tell me about your putting style and why do you putt with the Zone even though it's very overstable?

I like shallow rimmed putters too and I'm interested to try the Zone but I'm afraid that if it's too overstable..
