I've only thrown a few CD2's and they were all S-line, likely molded a couple seasons ago. So what I'm saying is I don't know how much they can vary.

But to me the CD2's were like a beat in...

I was kind of thinking heat might be a major factor, maybe I'll leave it in the sun to be safer about it...not worth ruining it to me, just wanted to speed up the process a little.

Anyone have any advice on how to develop the inevitable "puddle top" on Anodes/Ions a little sooner? I much prefer the lower profile feel, release, and even flight once they are like this but it...

He throws his mids real far on FH shots a lot. I think I've seen him throw his Cloudbreakers on bomber shots too, with a lot of hyzer.

Pretty much all the top pro's with cannons for BH shots...

Yeah that definitely sounds right to me. The disc kind of shoots out and there is very little concern for getting finger flubs or having it kind of pull right or something odd. Don't need to worry...

You've got to throw them like 30' high on a steep hyzer release. Even though they are high speed and sharp rimmed, for some reason they don't stall out for me when they turn over at height. I...

I would also film from behind the teepad, it's much easier to see your toe-heel balance that way.

It's more that you need to feel how it is to be over the foot/leg/hip, like how your body wants to...
