If you don't mind Prodigy, the Pa1 has a fairly overstable flight, but becomes a very nice glidey straight putter over time.

I agree. Paul is a veteran, and I've seen him correctly argue the rules a bunch of times live. I've even seen him correctly give the benefit of the doubt to a player in a tight race situation, where...

You'd could artificially create higher scores, yes. You could also use mozzarella sticks like they did at USDGC. You could make scoring higher in any number of ways. The issue is that most of these...

I mean, we just had a couple of very technical pro tour events.

I think some courses do it better than others. Milo MvGyver (sp?) is a good example of a course that allows the bombers to...

This thread is too long for me to read the whole thing, but something I didn't see much of in the first 10 or 15 pages was the importance of course design.

I don't think making a putt inside 33...

Well, I am a highschool physics teacher. When I say "more gyroscopic" I'd call that clear enough. To be more specific I could say that it "conserves its angular momentum" better than another object....

I agree with your main point, but that isn't quite what's going on with MVP. If we could say "this Gyro disc flies 5% farther," I agree that would be huge. But we can't. If we could say "it flies 5%...

Way back in the days of Dicgolfreview.com, someone tore a few of their discs apart and weighed out all the materials. Even back when they were a new company we kinda knew it was a gimmick. But yeah,...

DGA Hurricane is a good choice. Feels almost exactly like a Destroyer in the hand as well.

This makes no sense as a metric. It was relatively easy for Climo to be head and shoulders above his much weaker competition. Go back and watch some really early video of USDGC. The vast majority of...

Low forehand with a skip/light ballista gets me inside 40 ft. almost every time. Sometimes the wind forces to make a weird or longer putt, but I'd say I get hole 1 at least 90% of the time.

Yeah, you're looking at the word stable to mean straight, and my whole argument is that discs don't have absolute flight characteristics. You can only compare them to each other on a spectrum. See...

There really isn't any such thing as a "truly stable" disc, in the sense that it will always hold its release angle regardless. If I was the incredible hulk I could throw a flat top Firebird and make...

Yeah, I think Discraft might disagree with that assertion. I think Paul's salary is more than paying for itself.

Yes I do. I was refering to his getting in a funk and not feeling like he could play well the next event or two.

If I thought USDGC counted my statement wouldn't have made any sense.

Hey man, he may win 10 for all I know, but I think once PMcB's heyday is over, there won't be anyone as dominant again, at least not for a long time.
