The hangover and weariness from 2012 Worlds lasted about 4 years. Then we took on 2018 Worlds. Not quite as stressful this time around. We're noodling what biggie is next.

I started with a red 165, then a 161 before settling on the 151. All my fairway and distance drivers are between 150 and 159; mids 168ish; putters 166-70.

I've been carrying a 151 Relay for about six months and it has become the most dependable hyzerflip and anny disc in my bag. Big fan.

Interesting thread. I don't believe PDGA payout/players pack value requirements keep clubs from making money. It depends on how an event's expense/revenue projections are planned out beforehand. I'm...

If it was an M it'll be quite flippy, S is a good bit more stable, a sweet disc. Q is a stable candy bomber at 150 - some of the best 150-class drivers ever made.

Not the Champ ones, but some of the best lightweight PDs were the First Run Star 150-class. Very beefy, and they stay that way. Then in the first production run of Star 150s they came out with a...

Definitely the roller, because. . .

Do you know why throwing rollers is like dating strippers?
It's great fun but you never know what you'll be left with.

Yeah, got a couple and the quality is such that the longer you own it the better it works. The pivots are smoother and the seat fabric folds so much easier. I turn the plastic feet to a new contact...
