I'll be interested to see how trimmed down the bag eventually gets. Seems like he is still dabbling with lots of molds, which is surprising to me. One of the big perks of throwing Trilogy plastic...

I throw about the same distance as the OP and I agree with Wolfmandagon. There's no problem putting an overstable complement in the bag for headwinds, but most of the time hyzerflips are still...

If it's sunny and only mildly windy, I'll play regardless of how cold the temperature gets here. Now granted, typically that is still at least a positive number on the Fahrenheit scale, and if I...

Interesting. I've been casually checking out molds that fill the slightly understable fairway slot, just in case Stags go OOP. I really like the feel of discs in that 1.9 range. I may have to...

Escape fits between a Maverick and Getaway, and feels a lot like a Getaway just with a lower parting line. That may be your goldilocks disc if you want to try another Dynamic mold.

Yeah, I'm not saying the Trespass and Wraith fly the same. I'm saying they *feel* nearly the same, and have complementary flight paths. They coexist very nicely in a bag together. And while the...

I still love my Plasma Waves, too. I have been swapping my Neutron Vanish in the bag instead sometimes, depending on whether I want my tailwind driver to be straight (Wave) or understable (Vanish). ...

I throw about the same as you on an average day, and I have tinkered infinitely with distance drivers. I've currently come to realize that Wraith-sized rims are my most consistent long flyers. I...

I've never camped up there, we always rent a cabin. Went with a crew that doesn't particularly like camping last time (plus we had an infant at the time), so a cabin worked perfect for us. We...

Same situation for me too just with different discs. I've putted Crowns for most of the past two years. My typical Crown miss is low and/or left. Now I've been tinkering with Judges for the past...

You sound a lot like me. And for me, I'm more consistent if I hyzerflip moderately US drivers (Trespass, Shryke, Wave, etc) than I am if I try to muscle up or force over a more stable traditional...

That really is a good start. For me, I sometimes tense up over shots that I think *need* to go far, even if they don't. Throwing a 9-speed Getaway or 8-speed Stag can help take the pressure off. ...

Strictly grip. I've never cracked a disc while putting, only while driving.

And I've never cracked a Trilogy disc. The only disc that broke for me in the cold was DX.

I recently traded for a 158g Blizzard Wraith. I was pleasantly surprised. It flies just like my 175g Star Wraith, just longer. And I actually really like the texture of the rim, as the Blizzard...

Getaway is a really consistent mold for me. Flatter Fuzions fly maybe a touch less OS than Lucids and domey Fuzions, but they are still really similar. We're talking small, incremental differences....

The argument I made back when DD announced the cut is that they should have kept a token understable mold rather than solely cutting based on current sales. DD's...
