Hand feel is such a funny thing. Depending on how you grip a disc, subtle mold differences can feel significant and vice versa.

For example, I threw Wraiths for a bit and bagged a PDx as an OS...

I compared three discs, but I'm assuming the "two" you referenced are Emac Truth and Buzzz, since Roc has a very different profile.

It's been a couple years since I held a Buzzz, but I remember...

That is a quandary. Can't really go up to a fairway then, as I imagine all neutral-to-US fairway drivers will easily outpace your Buzzz.

If you have a local shop, I'd recommend feeling an Emac...

When I first started trying to learn a forehand, Scott's video resonated with me because of how simple he makes the process seem. So I tried emulating his form. In hindsight, this probably set me...

I'm not looking to replace my Felons, but rather was just curious how they compare to Firebirds and other meathook discs that I haven't tried.

The way I see it, is that if you want to have...

This is a very counterintuitive concept for me. How do you tighten your wrist and fingers but keep your forearm and bicep loose? Or is this a timing thing...loose through the backswing, and tensing...

Yeah, that's a pretty fair summary. Arm speed is still relevant, just not as big of a factor as your snap. If you don't get the disc spinning properly than it will hyzer out way earlier than the...

I would also add that gyro discs seem to prefer rotational force over vector force. They are a strong armers nightmare, but fly beautifully for guys with good spin even if you don't throw hard.

Definitely not Option 1. That just seems like a lot of effort to beat in a Zone or Firebird enough to become a roller or turnover disc.

I guess I primarily would go with Option 2 as a general...

No offense taken. That is good advice, especially since I didn't clarify where I'm biking or what kind of trails.

I'm sure I will eventually move onto more technical stuff, but for now 80%+ of...
