Wide rimmed drivers can be a chore do deal with, for the reasons you specify. Finding multiples that have the same stability and glide isn't usually easy.

For really strong headwinds I'd probably...

I always thought the Surge flew like a slightly mellower Wraith. The kind of disc you can turn over if you really put your mind to it. Surges are neutral and will hold pretty much whatever line you...

Masks are stupid and useless. Half the people I see wearing them aren't doing so properly anyway. Wear them if you must, but it shouldn't be mandated.

There's just no standards. I see people with...

I won't say it's right or wrong, but Paige P has never been afraid to live by the sword.... or die by it. I know she's lost tournies before by being too cavalier and running into OB issues.

This was pretty much exactly what I said in one of my prior posts.

I don't think Paige Pierce has ever been scared of a shot in her life. Paige S is much more timid.

A few thoughts from the women's side.....

Paige P looked really good overall. She minimized mistakes. Great putting. She played smarter this weekend too. Less ridiculously risky shots and good...

Hyzerflips are just way easier to throw consistently than big annies. Truth be told, I get better distance with hyzerflips anyway. Every once in a while I'll unleash a perfect, high anny that'll go...

I think this is the key. When I hit a hyzerflip just right it'll take a while for the disc to finally start turning. You don't want it to turn too early. Usually if that happens the disc will flip...

The pro I had problems with was over a decade ago, when pro Wraiths first came out. They weren't really gummy, but they weren't super stiff either. The plastic would look and feel good, but suddenly...

Well, its like the star Destroyer. The proto star Destroyer was the first (and IMO best) Destroyer ever made. Great plastic and very consistent from disc to disc. In the decade since, I feel like...

This is pretty much how I see it. Paige S has undoubtedly had her success. She does play fairly steady golf, and seldom gives away dumb shots with OBs or missed easy putts.

However, on a...

Sometimes you'll see "star" plastic that I swear is either mislabeled, or it has a lot of pro in it. Rubbery and not very durable.

I remember when star plastic first came out, it was some of the...

Hardest plateau for me to overcome distance-wise was going over 450'. I had been sniffing 450' for several years. It was absolutely the max distance I could throw, and I couldn't do it often. This...

It sucks. Most of the discs I've lost were doing field work in stupid spots. Or using the wrong disc for a particular shot.

At first, I agree. Eventually the pro plastic would start getting dinged up and lose its flight characteristics a lot faster than star.

I stopped throwing pro plastic years ago because I...

I agree with you here, and its too bad. Paige S is actually a fairly skilled woman DG'er, but she definitely lacks killer instinct. On the women's side, par golf is sometimes good enough to net you a...

If I say "turn and burn" it means I'm releasing a disc flat or slightly hyzer and having it immediately turn over into the ground. It isn't a gentle turn, its a violent, quick one. Basically a...

The discs I have issues with are usually tourny stamped. Sometimes pro and star can look and feel exactly alike. Usually pro is more rubbery than star, but not always.

I've thrown a couple 150ish stars. They'll turn and burn at 400' or more, but not 350'.

I've never seen ANY star Destroyer turn and burn at 350' no matter how beat up it was.

I've thrown a couple of those "Vulcan topped Destroyers". Both were Avery Jenkins models. Not really a fan. They tended to be pretty flat and somewhat glideless and flippy. I've thrown a couple...

The first DD3 I threw was like a perfect (somewhat beat in) star Destroyer. It had a big dome. Great glide, some high speed turn, and a mellow fade.

I've thrown a couple DD3s since, and they've...

At 350' the closest you'll come to flipping a NEW star Destroyer is a lightweight Wysocki Raptor one. At 400' I can get a bunch of turn out of them.

I haven't quite thrown 70 star Destroyers,...
