~5:58 Climo says that Pro Firebird is "every bit as stable as anything out right now." Does he mean "neutral?" Would you argue with the Champ?

He also talks about his "stable" Wraiths and he doesn't mean straight or neutral. He means overstable and uses the words interchangeably later in the video. There's no ambiguity. You've got to be a fool to not understand what he's talking about.

I just thought that was kind of funny, with all the back and forth about stable meaning straight how using stable to mean overstable was totally wrong. Straight from the Champ's mouth. Don't you think that guy knows what he's talking about?

Everybody knows when you say something is "stable" you don't mean like a Comet, you mean overstable. Some people just want to argue just to argue.

Ugh, I was WAY into the older is better for a long time. Then I lost my main disc, that was WAY too important to me. Once i took some time off, and got into some of the newer discs, i sold all my old stuff and just buy the new stuff stock. So much cheaper, I don't care if i lose a disc, since i know i can get another easily. Which makes me not lose as many too. Having the confidence to throw ANY disc at any time is a great feeling. (not by skill, but like not wanting to lose my 11x teebird over the water, so throw a disc i have less confidence in, just to save the teebird)

Take that stupid joke of an argument to the Landfill where it belongs.

I've been gravitating to the same argument. I have stacks of old plastic I collected for backup purposes that are collecting dust.

The problem is that I'm getting some of my new discs to the point where they're just as trusty. It's hard to throw a disc you've been seasoning for two years and trust to do what you want over water.

I love this comeback. I always want to say, "I never said you said you did." And just go back and forth.

I had a few 10x Aviar's. One got stolen, and the other cracked. I would've had to sell a testy to replace them. 12x's are a decent replacement and so much cheaper.

Joke of an arguement? It's straight from the Champ's mouth brah, can't argue with that. Well, I guess you could. But at the end of the day you are still the internet DG nerd and Climo is still The Champ... And you're still wrong, and it's showing.

Enjoyed the video, thanks for sharing.
