I gotta check out "the youtube" when I get home to see it.

From back when you threw them, what were their strengths and weaknesses? More importantly what Mids did you pair up with them to cover the weaknesses?

If its Rocs, what made you keep the Coyote around since most Roc throwers feel they can stand on their own?

Lots of questions there but they're things I've wondered a lot and haven't found good answers to. I may over-think my discs I carry sometimes, but the way my head works, I need to know the purpose of any disc there and why I want to pull it out when I step up to a shot.
i liked the coyote because it would hold whatever type of line i threw it on, hyzer, anhyzer, straight, all of them. Its extra bonus was the way it has a rounded rim that it didnt cut roll much when you over turned and threw it in the ground like a roc would. And yes i did pair it with rocs, but i only carried one brand new kc roc and i carried two or three coyotes in different stages of being broken in. Its a really nice disc that is a very gool all around mid that still has some speed and carry. I struggled to stay on top of my rocs and always have the ones i needed in the bag and the coyote ment i could get rid of most of them

its the shot i like to throw on that one. And i was going out there to put on a show for the fans, at that point i didnt care where i finished after the 6 hole playoff with cale to get into the finals. I was going to show everyone a good time in appreciation for all the support i got the whole week! If i couldnt win it, it was going to be a hell of alot of fun showing people what i can do out on my home course!!

What is your landing zone for that sky roller line? I've thrown it on 7 before but I haven't figured out the line yet. I either crash the trees or I land on the uphill part by the road which keeps the disc stable and it ends up across the road.

lol, no worries.

Both those holes are tough for me, not so much just because of the OB road, but the crud you get into across the road, looking for discs. Total Swamp Thing moment out there.
