My 200 plastic M2 I chucked into a T post on accident and is now quite understable. I need a new M2 to beat into the hyzerflip to laser spot, and sadly my 2 year old 400 M2 just isn't there yet.

I just got two X out 300 plastic M2s i am quite eager to throw. I'm hoping they warp just a little less and stay in the sweet spot for longer than the 200 plastic M2 did

MDX5 this past weekend, favorite tournament probably, if any of you are in the northern Maryland/Penn area I recommend it, great players pack (hat, shirt, koozie, shryke, makani, birdie bag, stickers, great lunches) and some super challenging courses (Ditto Farms and Whispering Falls)
drivers are pretty well set up now; in order of most -> least stable I bagged and threw basically all of these over the weekend.
C DD (beeeffff)
S DD (I'm starting to get a teensy bit of turn in a headwind)
MF wraith
puddle top kenny wraith
flat bottom stamp wraith
then two domey bottom stamp bombers, one is just a tick more stable.

on the second day I threw a lot of my trusty star starfire. I still love that disc for the PD/Thundy slot, actually chained out on a 345' hole. Close to my first ace ever.

the 300 M2 is much more durable than the 200 M2. Ditto farms I played a lot of short shots for placement with mids since the fairways are so tight, and I basically only threw those two. Beat one for hyzerflips and turns and fresh one for straight to fade.

my super beat breaker was nice for putter turnovers and grabbed me a few birdies on shorter holes.

Still love mercys for putting but they can be tricky in the wind, they rely so much on glide...

Stego actually got quite a bit of work the second day, it's nice to be able to throw an approach pretty hard and have it go 50 feet. I find it easier to hit lines throwing at like 40% power than 10% power sometimes.

I dug out an old PA4 I had sitting around to throw alongside the polecat. The PA4 definitely has a more pronounced fade, but they're both about the same amount of glide, I might try the PA4 out for a couple rounds, see if it can be thrown in the wind. I like the 'cat, but any wind and I can't trust it. Plus with the PA4 having both turn and fade it's kind of weird and could be used for some interesting short lines I think.

Packed shift for a solo round at Signal View today. First time playing the course, loved the course, needed more bugspray for the ridiculous mosquitoes. Shot a 64 but left a lot of strokes on the table.
C DD
S DD
Star Wraith
Star Starfire
Gold Burst Trident
3x F2
3x M2
2x Breaker
Pa4
2x Mercy

My flippy F2 is finally flippy enough for backhand rollers so I tossed a couple second shots with it, worked out pretty well.
Pa4 getting some use, I definitely like how floaty it is, while being much more comfortable in the hand than the Polecat.

Got a MD4 out of a shared discmania mystery box I went in on with friends. It's going straight into the bag. The M2 I normally throw will still be my go to, but the MD4 feels great and I'll use it for windy days, as I don't like throwing the M2 in a headwind.

I don't like you anymore, I think you got that E* Wraith I had my eye on in the marketplace.

:( It wasn't me actually. I've been more on the lookout for G* wraiths or any domey ones

I got a replacement for my Fossa bag I usually use, a Voodoo on sale. I'd had the Fossa bag for about a year, maybe a little over and was never really enamored with it. It's not terribly comfortable and over time the left strap cushion has gotten balled up (where I usually pick it up by and if I only put on one strap it's the left one).

Voodoo is much larger, and taller and seems like it sits in a more comfortable place, the quality seems a little higher than the Fossa bag and it has better feet. The padding on the straps seems thicker and more sewn in place. Overall my initial impressions are super optimistic for it.

18 at Giles Run Sho Lo
Shot a 63 including a 5 ft layup to troll a friend and still beat him by 2.
2X wraith
1X DD
1X Starfire
1X Trident
2X F2
3X M2
2X Breaker
2X Mercy

I took an abbreviated bag because I was expecting to play bluemont really. I missed the float of the PA4 on a couple upshots for sure. I'm trying to switch from a weird grip to a normal fan grip for putting and I'm going through some growing pains with it.
