I should get a medal or something. I went to the local shop to purchase a fresh Raider, and walked out with one Lucid Raider. Not four or five, ONE. And didn't buy anything else. Pretty sure I've...

It's still a great bag for the current $60 price. But it's not going to hold up forever. I originally hoped to get 4-5 years from the bag, but now I'd say it'll be more like 2-3 years. $60 for...

Yikes. Well I wasn't really planning on trying out any new molds soon anyways, but if I do I'll make sure that it's not a Lat64 mold. I prefer the DD methodology of just doing it all at once. ...

Ha, no I don't sell them...I cherish them. Also, I've come to terms with the fact that I can never be a true mold minimalist, for precisely the reason you stated. I just don't throw my true meathook...

Production run Lucid Raiders are out. Anybody grab one? My Fuzion Raider is showing its first signs of breaking in, so I was probably going to be in the market for another Raider before the end of...

I met Scott Frost once. He was standing outside an arcade that had a big neon sign flashing "all games: $1." Scott had this terrible frown on his face, so I asked him what was wrong. He said "I...

Update: The bag is showing some early wear. :(

The basket-weave material is fraying pretty bad at the 'U' part of the shoulder strap. Looks close to tearing. Should hopefully remain functional,...

This is one of the best internet argument posts I have ever read. I originally voted McBeth, but I think you may have convinced me otherwise.

First post and this guy nailed it. :clap:

A lot of beaded putters feel too deep to me. Judge is relatively shallow. Also, it has so many plastic choices that are readily available. It's an easy...

Thankfully I'm happy with my current bag, so I don't really *need* either a Lucid or Bio Raider. I'm happy with the Shryke for less stable max distance, and with my PDX for serious headwinds. I'm...

Count me as one more vote for the Shryke to fill the "beat Raider" slot. That's exactly the combo I'm throwing right now and they complement each other really well. I took to the Raider...

Axiom Envy. I've never thrown any other putter that has that same mix of stability, glide, distance potential, and forgiveness. It is essentially the perfect "one disc round" disc. Everyone should...

I'd like to thank whoever recommended Proxies a few months back. The Proxy has been a go-to disc for approaches and short drives. It hasn't just complemented my Envy, it has actually stolen most of...

Hold up. So does this mean a run of Biofuzion Raiders are incoming? If so, then I need one. That also would spell competition for my Shryke slot. DANG IT WHY CAN I NEVER SETTLE ON MY DRIVERS

Is the SE blend the same as the SE they made for the Getaway last year? If so, then it falls between Fuzion and Biofuzion. SE Getaways also molded up with a little less dome than most Fuzion and...

1) They did give you one "strong arm" driver and one "weaker arm" driver. The Ballista is a very understable disc. Unless you're throwing at high altitude, you should easily be seeing some turn at...

There's a huge step up in stability from a DX disc to a Champion disc in the same mold. I'm not familiar with Valks, so I'll let others make recommendations there. But as for Teebirds, a Pro or G*...

How much headwind are you talking? I'm comfortable throwing a Star Wraith in up to a 15 mph headwind. Above that I'd recommend a PDX if you want the same speed class. Other people prescribe to the...

I came here to wonder aloud why Innova would produce a DX RocX3. It appears as though I'm not the only one scratching my head.

I do actually like XT plastic though. It retains its tackiness...
