I wanted the RCs to be that Zone/ Glow Gator utility OS and they never were, esp in the HSS part of their flight. I had decided I was not going to get a RC3. I caved when I saw how nice the plastic was and everyone saying how OS they were and have not left the bag since. I've even purchased backups so I'm all in. I'm going to be cycling softs and a Meta.

You pretty much settled it. I will be selling my Neo tactic and swapping it for a Meta today before my round. Thanks for the reassuring insight!

A Zone will go farther than any Tactic/RC mold, imo, which might be lingering in your subconscious. I don’t need 50 more feet out of a RC3 - makes it hard to overthrow.

Discmania has ‘caught up’ with demand, I think. They did that while charging $5-10 more per disc for signature stamps. On one hand it helps the pros, so not all bad. DM is close to overplaying the upcharged discs, and they probably realize this since no molds are selling out before replenishment lately. If they’re business savvy as they seem, this should mean that the stock runs of S-line molds are coming, which is the next avenue DM can use to increase revenue.

I didn’t realize the subconscious expectation of a tactic trying to go as far as a zone. Thank you for pointing that out because that was exactly the problem. Adjustment made!


I love this forum.

I could throw:
P1s
P2s
Tactic

Origin
MD3

Essence/ FD
Instinct
CPD

DD3

I would be just fine and my score probably would not hurt too much.

You are likely correct. I can admit that I succumb to the marketing that the “perfect run” will help me when what I really need is more practice. There’s no easy fix, but I do prefer the special s-line blend to c-line. As per usual, I’m probably overthinking everything, but perhaps that’s what hobbies are for…

Every new run is the ‘perfect’ run. We don’t get consensus on actual great runs until 5 years later when everyone wants the ‘second’ run.

This made me chuckle because it’s so damn true. I guess I have to find a real way to get better at disc golf.

So…mystery boxes!? Hahahaha

Any feedback on the Vapor Essences that are floating around? How are they flying?

I got a couple from the.....Canadian nationals? or something like that, one of the first batches of them. They're my most stable essence but still go pretty far. Straight to fade in the 320'-350' range for me, if I really get on it I can force little turn, but I always can count on it getting back to center or right of the tee (LHBH)
In comparison, my oldest neo essence in the bag is more of a panning turnover all the way to the ground, my semi fresh (been throwing since last September) neo essence gets a decent amount of turn and then works back to near center in line with the tee (also gets 20-40' more distance)
I have a couple Zen's but never fully clicked with them, they're slightly less stable than the Vapor, but they also don't go as far as the Vapor.

Realistically the vapor essence and my NS2 share the same slot in my bag, but as we're moving into fall I've been reaching for the essence more just because it would be cheaper to replace when it gets buried under the leaves.

Accurate. Doombird II was a red headed stepchild and available online for months after it's release.

Stock stamp Flex 1 P2s are on the Europe site with a countdown.

Will we see these stateside?

Boo. P1 & P2 Flex3 s please! I’m waiting to start a new putter cycle when flex3 comes out. There was a tiny run of fkex3 P2, but by the time I realized…I didn’t want the colors.

So...

What is Discmania Stratosphere?
