Thanks! It was a really cool looking shot, real low, dead straight the first 3/4's of the flight, then that perfect flip up to the right with a little help from the wind.

Just got my longest FH Ace about twenty minutes ago. It was a whopping 250' haha.



Normally I FH a Volt or similar neutral slower driver here and on a good shot park it or run it. Had a sick drive earlier in the round with my XXX so figured I'd give it a shot here. Flicked it hard and flat, but a little higher than I normally throw on this hole. Apparently a little height is just what I needed, because it flew right into the heart of the chains. Thought it'd fade too soon since I'm not used to flicking such OS plastic but it hit the line perfectly.

Yep, this was the second dye I ever did. It bleed much more than my first. I wasn't expecting the dye to go so far to the edge since this Kite is pretty domey

Got my 1st ace of the year 7th of my career today after school. It was on New Holstein's 9 holer on hole 6 which is 185'. Earlier in the week I thought it would be more consistent and easier to throw the hole from a standstill due to a large snow drift on the tee. So I stepped up to the tee with my red Z Comet and as I released I almost slipped on a patch of ice causing me to throw sky high. As I stood and watched the disc hang in the air it slowly started its decent straight down. At the very last second it just barely faded into the heart of the chains. I did as Vince Lombardi once said and I acted like I had been there before even though the feeling of getting an ace will never get old.
