I don't have the arm speed for a Ballista Pro. I bagged them for a bit in 2019, and wasn't getting any extra distance compared to speed 11-12 drivers unless I put it on a big, high flex line. ...

I like looking back at my thought process after a few months. It's interesting to see it evolve.

Now 2.5 months later, I have spent the majority of that time without a true understable distance...

There have been a lot of threads on these boards about 'bracing' against your front leg. My brief, non-expert interpretation of it: it's how you anchor your leg to allow force and weight transfer...

Anecdotally, I found that I stayed healthier in winters once I started playing disc golf. Rather than just hunkering down all winter long, playing dg kept me active and boosted my immune system. ...

Count me as another vote for the Proxy. If I was a power thrower I'd probably vote Envy, but at my arm speed the Proxy just goes straight whereas the Envy loses a bit of late distance with that...

Yeah, that is my preference among those four carbon copy molds, too. Discmania's discontinuation of the P-PD set them back a step, since the Getaway is readily available in less overstable plastics...

In my mind it's whatever you throw in the Getaway/Thunderbird/PD/Fortress slot. Just look for one with some extra dome and you'll have a long, glidey flyer that is also reliably overstable as long...

For me it was incorporating weight transfer through my brace leg. Specifically, it was learning to get my front foot at 90* to the target line, or even a little closed, to enable a brace. An open...

Jawbreaker is a fantastic plastic for wet conditions, but I don't think it's terribly common for their driver molds.

I can't speak to your PreMac question, because I've only been throwing Emacs for around 2 years and PreMacs were long gone by then. As for Verdicts and Emacs, that is a classic pairing with very...

Do Pro Bosses typically have a bit of nice dome to them? I've thrown too many flat Pro drivers.

If I ever revisit the attempt at bagging a laughably fast max distance smasher, I think Champ Glow Shryke would be top of the list. That type of disc released high and with a bit of anny would...

Is it a Tournament Burst? If so, I have that same color in a Getaway. And yeah it's a tough one to find on an errant throw. Dark color + swirly plastic is the worst.

Emacs are great, but thrown hard and flat they will drift just a bit to the right if you have power. Verdict is a true straight-to-fade mid if you're looking for a two mid lineup. If that gap is...

I'd personally just grab a fresh Undertaker if I were you and get a cycle going. But then again, I'm constantly looking for how to trim molds from my bag rather than to add more.

I have thrown each of those molds. The Teebird clearly feels much narrower, to the point that it is uncomfortable for my grip with how much I have to curl my fingers to grip it. Thunderbirds and...

Thanks for the tip, you're right that I'd rather throw a fast mid than a slow fairway. That being said, I already bag a Stag at 8/5/-1/2 so a Stalker would be a lot of overlap. I'm not looking for...

I try to keep my fairways and distance drivers on opposite ends of the bag, since I generally have some color overlap between them. It's pretty easy to grab a yellow Stag thinking it's a yellow...
