This week I threw 450' on a griplocked downhill tailwind shot that finished 100' over an OB line. So...I guess for interwebs purposes I'm a 450' thrower?

In reality I comfortably throw fairways...

Yeah, it seems like a smart business move. Take a mistake and turn it into something fun and unique. I throw Getaways instead of Thundies, but if I did throw Thundies I probably would pick one up.

Oh, and addendum to post above: I haven't noticed a difference in stability between the Classic Blend and Prime plastics. Maybe the Primes just beat in faster?

I’ve started testing Classic Blend and Prime Judges to see if they can be a workhorse putter mold for me. And by “workhorse”, I mean a mold that I can putt (C1 and C2), approach, and drive...

I have no scientific answer. Anecdotally, stable-to-overstable discs fly better for me if relatively flat, and stable-to-understable discs fly better for me if domey. It's really a matter of if I...

Not to mention that Emporia is a disc golf mecca with tons of great courses to keep her sharp. Sounds like a perfect offseason to me.

Very true, I agree with the sentiment.

Did you realize the tee sign says "4" but the basket says "3"?

Getaways and Stags for me.

I have a Felon in the bag that mostly collects dust other than on super windy days, and a Hatchet that only goes in the bag if I expect to need understable utility. ...

Has anyone thrown the new Lucid-X Chameleon Judges? Do they mold up with extra stability like most other Lucid-X discs?

Thanks for catching my error. I throw Westside a lot more than L64, so I forget the equivalent L64 plastic name. I definitely meant Zero Hard rather than BT Hard.

The Kirkland trail socks from CostCo was going to be my recommendation, too. I'm sure you can find something of a slightly higher quality, but 4 pairs for $15ish is impossible to beat.

Yeah, that's part of my confusion. Inbounds shows it as a bit more stable and longer than a Judge. But in DD's "Is this disc right for you?" video on the Marshal, EMac says it fits "right between...

I've always been confused by how the Marshal fits in the DD putter lineup. It's pretty similar to a Judge, isn't it?
