Hope this is the right place to ask this...

How come Discmania's poster boy, Simon Lizotte, doesn't throw the PD? Not only is it the best thing DM has, surely Simon has the arm speed for it. I understand he is a minimalist, he has like 15 discs in his tour bag whereas most pros have closer to 25, but there's plenty of room between the speed 7 Jackal and the speed 12 meat hook known as Chaos.

This isn't a criticism, Simon obviously knows what he's doing. Just curious.

He's got a firebird for that "control driver" slot, Simon's throwing style seems to be if you can get around with a hyzer bomb then a hyzer bomb is what he'll throw and his overstable discs are good for that. Plus it seems like all his straight shots are mids or putters and anhyzers are with his über beat PD2

You're right that he likes high lines, but he doesn't have "uber beat" discs. He takes new PD2's and puts them on anny just with power. He's a freak in that sense. He throws crazy overstable discs as if they were control drivers. That's what impresses me about him, his hit is crazy powerful.

I don't know why he doesn't throw PD's, but he favors FD2's and Firebirds instead.

Thanks for the correction. I was just thinking of his in the bag when he talked about his flat PD2 so I assumed it was one he'd just had for a long time. He's definitely a unique player and that's why he's so fun to watch

Heh, it's actually funny he never has beat discs because he keeps losing them. He's so aggressive all the time and there's no shot he's afraid of, and no disc he's afraid to lose.

It definitely makes for come comedic moments on the course!

When can we expect more molds coming in G-line ? Like DD , PD2 etc. ?

Really love the G-line PD. Would LOVE to see some in 150 class. (Innova is making a bunch of 150 class gstars, including Bosses, so I know it's an option.)

I just bought a C line FD and was wondering if it was a 2nd or 3rd run. It is flat and has a stiff feel to it with lots of pearl. Super excited to throw it!

Definitely a 2nd run

tkaiser 09-22-2014 06:45 PM

Should I expect more stability? Heard 2nd runs were more like teebirds?
