Good point. I should have said the expected end result - in your example, straight ahead.

Y'all know that "what is stable?" is right up there with "what is par?", right?

There are definitions. There are casual ways that people use the term. And the two don't exactly match. Cue endless discussion. :p

Thatís what Sharpies are for. Throw a disc, see how it flies, then draw the flight path right on top of the disc. When you step up and decide the shape of the shot you want to throw you just grab whatever disc has the right picture on it.

When I started out and really didn't know much, I did that on the bottom of my discs.

When I was experimenting with some MVP discs before they had flight numbers I would write my own on the bottom to remind me how each disc generally flew.

I will say, the MVP flight charts before they had flight numbers were generally very helpful before choosing a disc. Especially because they gave multiple flights based on power level. For the most part the charts were accurate with me falling kind of in the middle of the expected flights.

I think that was the spectra... easy to throw they said... all over the place! It might have been a 1 but lots of turn, lots of fade.

In some ways it was easier to just have one number, less *****ing about .5's... or this or that. Speed rating is the most important # to me now, then the other ones.

Heck take the uplink in the two plastics.. 5 5 -3 0.5 (I think). Neutron I'd go 5 5 -3 0.25 but how do you describe the late turn? Soft id say 5 6 -1 0.5 depending on how hard and clean you toss it. I get my softs flying 5 6 0 0 most of the time

I guess TBH the uplink deserves at least a -1. **** though I'm carving with that thing like my custom knives into a Thanksgiving turkey!

Anyone feel like discussing the rhythm?

I'm really taking a liking to that... I haven't run it against a relay but it's ability to go mostly straight and glide for days is making me feel like it's a longer uplink. I'm not gonna lie, I pooped it a few times but the results were still pleasing and to be expected lines.

Good distance, very straight more or less. Lost it uphill in the dark, too much anny for a hill climb , looked on the bottom circled around long, good thing it was way past and on top. Like 40' past. These are a deadly new series of molds.

I'd love to discuss the Rhythm, but they are not in Australia yet. Sounds encouraging.

Still can't decide between a swag of Crave's or my Servo/Relay combo. Servo bombs, Relay feels better in my hand than a Crave, but the Crave goes a little further.

I keep going back and forth on whether or not I want to try a Rhythm. I currently throw a Hokom Crave as my turnover disc and a Plasma Crave as my stable/neutral fairway. I like the control I have with the Hokom. From what I've heard, the Rhythm is a little less stable or similar to a Relay, depending on the run of Relay.

So on the one hand, I have a Crave that I like the control of and I'm used to.

But on the other hand, I'd get to try a new disc and Rhythm might just be the coolest name for a disc in all of disc golf.
