I'm still testing a ThBird to see if/when it outpaces my Teebirds.

In a field, I've been surprised that the ThBird is generally right in the same space as my Teebirds... maybe 10-20' further, but...

Depends on where I'm going and how much DG I'm going to get to play. Usually I only carry 2-5 discs when I travel.

Yep... having backups is what keeps my bag pretty consistent. Gateway putters, Discraft mids, Innova drivers. Backups for everything and no longer play often enough to cycle new molds into the bag....

WTB: several FLX Buzzz discs

I had three from when they first came out, maybe a decade ago. I'm down to just one, and it's my favorite mid. Time to restock.

Wow. I've never looked at this stat before. Just realized I'm in the top 150 out of over 70K members. Feeling pretty good.

And the funny thing is I've never worked very hard to hit new courses......

2 meter response - make it a hole design decision for designers
