I asked the same questions a couple years ago after falling in love with the Wave and wanting a slightly more stable complement. Defy seems to be the answer if you read the MVP/Axiom literature. ...

No no no. You're doing it wrong. You should hunt down some limited run flippy Teebirds to replace the Stags too and minimize molds. And you should sell the Stags, to prove you are fully committed...

I've thrown a lot of Ballista Pros. They are quite wide and noticeably faster than a standard Speed 12 driver. Lat64 lists them as a Speed 14, which is fair. I think you could argue Speed 13, but...

Dibs on your VIP-X Stags if you kick 'em out. Actually, I'd probably buy all your Stags, but I'm particularly interested in the VIP-X.

Ballista Pros have a super wide rim. The answer has to be something from Prodigy's Max line, right? Just a standard X2 or D2 will be significantly slower than a BalPro.

Yeah, Stego isn't the first disc I would think of for approaches at Waterworks, unless the wind is howling. Something neutral and glidey that you can manipulate angles with to land it flat is...

That makes a lot more sense. FD3/Eagle/FD/Maverick seems like a solid lineup.

How did you like Waterworks? I've never played it in the winter, but in the summertime it is one of my favorite...

It's kind of amazing how such a vital slot in so many peoples' bags is so hard to fill. I have gotten nervous with my Stags that they may go OOP due to lack of sales and availability. Their...

Tursas isn't a plus rim, but otherwise I hear ya there. I don't like +ers either. So while I throw a lot of Trilogy, there have been plenty of Trilogy molds that I haven't clicked with.

The Trilogy plus rim thing is really overblown. It's pretty much limited to Lat64 molds.

Take the mid-stability fairway driver slot, for instance.

This current conversation has piqued my interest. I'm not quite a noodle arm, but I typically don't throw above 80% these days so 325' is pretty average for me. I can pump it out there further if I...

They do still make that mold -- it's just a regular Truth. "PreMac" refers to regular Truths that were run prior to the "Made in Sweden" bottom embossing. It's a denotation of runs that came out...

That's kind of tough. I do think an Electron Envy is worth checking out, but it might not be exactly what you're looking for. Premium Envies and Proxies are kind of unicorn molds -- torque and turn...

I do really like the P2. I never gave it a serious look at my workhorse putter mold simply because DX is such a horrible baseline plastic. But I've putted with them in a buddy's backyard, played...
