Played a long woods course yesterday, and was actually missing the pipeline a lot. Throwing harder shots with undertakers took its toll over 36 holes. Might be worth using a full 4 predator lineup...

inability to acquire new pPDs years ago is why I stopped throwing them. I usually carried 2 of those with an S Line and 3rd run C line complimenting them. It was a great cycling driver.
