I've only thrown a few CD2's and they were all S-line, likely molded a couple seasons ago. So what I'm saying is I don't know how much they can vary.

But to me the CD2's were like a beat in...

Anyone have any advice on how to develop the inevitable "puddle top" on Anodes/Ions a little sooner? I much prefer the lower profile feel, release, and even flight once they are like this but it...

He throws his mids real far on FH shots a lot. I think I've seen him throw his Cloudbreakers on bomber shots too, with a lot of hyzer.

Pretty much all the top pro's with cannons for BH shots...

I would also film from behind the teepad, it's much easier to see your toe-heel balance that way.

It's more that you need to feel how it is to be over the foot/leg/hip, like how your body wants to...

Yeah get rid of the plastic flashing on the bottom. Just push the disc around on smooth concrete in circles until it's smooth.

The part at 4:15 is pretty much exactly what I was looking for in this instance. About once you've resisted and the hip starts to clear a bit, that you can just go with it.

Generally neutral speed 7ish discs should get out to 300' very well for new-intermediate players when they have some technique. Something like a Discmania FD, Innova Leopard, etc.
