This reminds me of what I used to say after a shank in my ball golf days -- "please don't be an insurance claim"

I, too, hate the hand feel of Roc3's. I switched from a Roc3/RocX3 combo to a Verdict/Emac Truth combo a little over a year ago. I really think the Verdict is as overstable as you need for what you...

beat-in discs vs. naturally US molds

I have a conundrum. I bag a couple Raiders, and I really, really like them. They're super comfortable in the hand and generally go where I want. I also bag a pop-top Star Shryke. It's not as...

My ratios change a little based on course length, but generally speaking:

3 throwing putters
5 mids
5 fairways
3 control drivers
3 max distance drivers

There's a huge difference between a domey pop-top Star Wraith and a Pro Wraith. That's probably the biggest stability gap within a mold that I've experienced.

I had the same struggles for a while with hand feel on putters. Turns out that shallow putters just feel better for driving in my hand.

The suggestion to try the Maiden seems spot on, assuming...

Ogden and the greater Northern Utah area

I just accepted a job offer in the Ogden area, and am starting to really scope out the disc golf courses nearby. Will likely live somewhere in either southern Weber County or northern Davis County. ...

Allowing a few groups to play through doesn't correct the problem, it just mitigates a small amount of the impact. That's the equivalent of a little old lady going 15 mph below the speed limit on a...

I'm pretty similar to you. My dad is also a really solid golfer (high 70's/low 80s) and at this point the only time I play golf is to spend time with him. I much prefer disc golf for some of the...

I really don't need a new Zone. I always bag a Ti, supplement with a JB about 50% of the time, and have backups for both. But that video sells the Zflx really well. And personally I do like...

That Proton Ion turned out awesome! The others look solid too, but that P Ion looks even better than new. Glad it worked out for you! And hope the difference in grip doesn't bother you too much. ...

That is sound logic. Personally, I'm more comfortable manipulating release angle with putters and mids, while drivers I try to release all roughly the same and let the disc do the work. So my bag...

I wouldn't go the Warrant route. If the Evidence isn't understable enough, a Tursas is a much more reliable flip machine than a Warrant in my experience. Warrants were bizarre. The rim felt too...

I 100% agree with this. I tried bagging an Electron Envy instead of a Proxy, and one bad tree hit drastically changed the flight characteristics. Plus, the Electron Envy actually feels different in...

I'd bag an Envy if I were you. An Envy feels identical in the hand to a Proxy to me. If you blindfold yourself, I bet you can't tell which is which. So if you're looking to add a disc that likely...
