Yeah, it probably depends on what slot you're trying to fill, what situations you throw it in, elevation, arm speed, etc.

For me the Tesla didn't have anywhere close to the wind resistance of a...

Haha. I'ma 30-something that apparently still overcompensates.

Of all the gyro molds I've tried, there were only two that I just really did not like: Defy and Tesla. The one Tesla I had flew...

All those great gyro molds out there to choose from, and you decided to bag Teslas?!?:sick:

If my back of the napkin math is correct, I think I will be right at 900 for the first time when the new ratings update hits. This made me curious to re-look at the all-time Top 25 list, just to see...

The only problem I see with that is that a lot of people will think "oh, so it's like a Mako but a putter." And the Proxy is nothing like a Mako. Makos only fly straight with clean form and zero...

-I favor stock discs over limited run/OOP

It has more glide than 3, too. I know all flight ratings are subjective (and glide the most subjective of all) but there's no way the Proxy can go as far as it does with only 3 glide. It is the...

Getaways are where it's at, my man. Lightweight Biofuzions for line shaping and Max weight Lucids for beef.

Ditto. I'm a big fan of throwing putters, so naturally I love the Envy and Proxy. But they just don't power down all that well for me, because they are fairly fast/stable flyers for a putter mold. ...

Yes, DD Biofuzion and Westside Recycled are exactly the same plastic. And I have a couple nicely seasoned Bio Getaways, which is why I don't really need a VIP-X Stag. I imagine a VIP-X Stag and Bio...

Nope, I never grabbed one of the LX Verdicts. Honestly I don't throw my Verdict a whole lot, since I tend to throw an Emac with a little extra hyzer instead. Really only reach for a Verdict if I...

I just want them to do another run of Recycled Stags. I lost my VIP Stag that I'd been working in, and even rolling, for 9 months. Recycled plastic is like a cheat code for getting a perfectly...

From what I've seen/heard/read, LX Emacs fly like a slightly beat in Verdict. So at least they are replaceable whenever that is needed. But man...I sure do have a lot of Lucid-X in my bag for...

There's a difference in stability, but it's not huge. I think the bigger difference you'll see with a max weight Neutron is that the Neutron is much flatter and doesn't glide nearly as well. Plasma...

Dang it. I was doing so good at not buying those Lucid-X Emacs, and then they had to come out with that sweet "bear in the woods" stamp on a glimmer L-X run. So I caved and bought a pair.

I've found that my Fuse on a forehand goes a pretty similar distance as the glidey Pure does on backhand. And with them both being such straight flying discs, the shot shape really isn't that much...

This is logic I can get behind. Ideally I'd like to use fewer molds and give each disc more roles, but I think that is hard to do with putters. Mids, fairways, and drivers are more straightforward...

100% yes. I was pretty disappointed by the hand feel when I got my K2 Berg, both in terms of the floppiness of the plastic and the weird volcano shape of the flight plate. Also, I didn't notice any...
