It's so good. Last time I was back in Omaha visiting family, I noticed they've started putting in concrete pads. Could be a great course with TLC -- 18 concrete pads, new baskets, regular weed...

Next time you sneak across the IA/NE border you need to play Hummel. Less than a mile from the bluffs of the Missouri River, it is HEAVILY wooded. You'll feel like you teleported to somewhere other...

As a complete newbie I used to wash my discs because my first playing partner did. But I stopped after maybe a month or so when I realized it was unnecessary. Now it only happens after a potential...

I'm also curious about the Jet. The only reason I don't currently bag a Vanish is because I haven't come across one with any dome in a while, and I prefer domey discs in my understable slot. I'd...

Yeah, if you're looking for a premium Envy with some dome then I think you'll love the most recent run of Plasmas. Good pick up.

I agree with this. My current premium Envies that I'm rotating are a Plasma and Proton. I use them interchangeably, although the Plasma has just a touch of dome while the Proton is flat.

Why is the Fireball not a fairway? It's rim width is 1.85cm, which is squarely in modern fairway driver territory. Compare that with a Firebird (1.9cm), Thunderbird (1.9cm), or Escape (2.0cm) that...

Two changes.

Nah, I finally learned that me and giant rims don't mesh. Speed 11-shaped discs are my wheelhouse for both grip and arm speed. Wraith, Trespass, Photon/Wave/Vanish, Renegade, etc.

My four year old Biofuzion Emac Truth is that disc for me. If I ever lost it, I would throw a regular (non-Emac) Truth in the bag as a gap-filler and would start beating the snot out of my backup...
