Hey man, you're welcome to throw money around to people on the interwebs if you want to. But alternatively you can beat up a Jawbreaker Zone by yourself pretty quick. Use it for all shots <250' for...

Yikes. And I still think throwing down $25 for a tour series disc is expensive. :confused:

I've got a couple Lucid-X discs, a Felon and a Trespass. Both are way more overstable than any other Felons or Trespasses I've thrown. My L-X Trespass flies like a longer and glidier Biofuzion...

If anything, I feel like the Emac Truth is the disc that could be removed to streamline a bag. I personally love my Emacs but am interested to see my Verdicts' entire life cycle.

I could see...

I also bag both a Zone and Verdict and have nearly identical thoughts to you. They fly so different from each other that I really don't see any overlap or need to remove one from the bag.

Yikes, that's not good. The only new Trespass I've thrown lately is a Lucid-X and it is really nice and stable. All my other Trespasses were purchased quite a while ago. I wonder if the last couple...

I'm all in favor of MVP/Axiom experimenting with more plastic types. IMO there really is not a major difference between Proton and Neutron, both in terms of stability and durability. Even the feel...

I putted with Crowns for almost all of 2018 and might end up doing it again for 2019. I drive and approach with Envies, and this winter I've been trying to learn to putt with them as well. If the...

I'm intrigued by the Raider as well. It will be a very popular mold if it flies/feels like a Lucid-X Trespass but at a non-premium price. I thought the Recoil might be that disc, but it feels kind...

Interesting. My gyro experience is much more limited, but I've found the MVP/Axiom discs that I own multiples of to be remarkably consistent. 6 Envies all pretty much the same out of the box. 5...
