First Ace, With a Condor

So I bought a DX Condor on a whim about 2 weeks ago just figured I would mess around with it, and have it as a warm up disc. Well I threw it a couple times and loved the straight glide.

So during a tournament this weekend, I hit my very first ace with it, a 216 ft hole, 5 ft uphill elevation change, 205 ft dried up water carry.

Threw it just nice an straight, watched it have very minimal fade and SLAMMED hard, right in the middle of the chains, I was shocked it actually dropped and stayed.

NICE ACE!

I know heartman on here had an ace with a Condor, though I think it was closer to 300'. I could be wrong.

Yeah I know, that's what I was most shocked about lol The fact it stayed.

Thanks guys, been playing on 6 months, finally got one. Most of the older guys were pumped when they found out it was a Condor lol

And yes, you probably could hit one at 300' with it, but I am not that skilled yet

That's awesome!

First ace is sweet, doing it in a tournament is even sweeter! I've never seen anyone run chains with a Condor...the closest I've seen is my dad nailing a 220 or so foot birdie with a Condor (he loves his Condors). Most people I've seen, to include myself, use them as rollers.

That's pretty sweet dude. Now you're a Condor lifer!

After several years of playing and hundreds of rounds, I finally got my first ace last month. Surprisingly, it happened while playing a nearby course for the first time. Flicked and skipped a Firebird in on Hole 4 at Rankin Lake in Gastonia, NC.

Felt great to finally get one!

Today I got my second ace of this year, and my second ace. I was playing at Los Olivos, which is a local 9 holer. While I was playing I noticed this kinda ghetto looking black guy watching me play on hole 7. As we were walking to hole 9, the guy starts asking us questions and wants to throw one. Hole 9 is about 275 or so. the other 2 people I am playing with have already thrown. I show him the proper mechanics of throwing backhand. I tell him to watch me throw and copy what I do. I throw my teebird, and I start thinking to myself that is a good ace run. The disc hits the chains and stays in. The guys face was priceless. Its always exciting to get an ace, but in that situation, it was even more so.

Beast mode- Nice ace with a condor. I had just ordered a condor a few days ago on a whim myself.

Smitty- I know the feeling. I've been playing on and off for a long time(I got semi serious and started playing multiple rounds in 2003) and finally got my first ace on a fluke shot this year after years of metal and chain hits. Congrats.

That's awesome! My buddy was playing with me and witnessed it, and there was an old man getting out of his car in the parking lot next to the fairway who also witnessed it...or at least witnessed me and my buddy yelling and high-fiving after the shot.
