I don't have your arm speed, so I can get a little more stability out of my discs. I bag a PDx for *real* headwinds but the Raider had been holding up fine in <15 mph winds. Maybe thrown with a...

I find Shrykes to be my easiest distance disc. Even on a bad pull they go far. Star Shryke for a relatively stable, workable version. G* for flippiness, tailwinds, turnovers, etc.

Welp. I had my first "flip in a headwind and don't come back" moment with my Raider yesterday. Unfortunately, it happened on a hole with an OB creek on the right. Took me a good 20 minutes to find...

It's still a great bag for the current $60 price. But it's not going to hold up forever. I originally hoped to get 4-5 years from the bag, but now I'd say it'll be more like 2-3 years. $60 for...

Never used a zuca. my only concern would be how easy it is to access the top compartment. does the zuca seat block access to the top of bags? If so, then this would not be a good bag for the cart....

I've thrown RocX3s, and DX Roc3s, but never DX RocX3s. So take this with a grain of salt. But I wouldn't expect any DX disc to flex out of an anny after more than a few tree hits.

Yikes. Well I wasn't really planning on trying out any new molds soon anyways, but if I do I'll make sure that it's not a Lat64 mold. I prefer the DD methodology of just doing it all at once. ...

I must be behind the news cycle here. Is L64 going to do another wave of cuts? I thought the DD and L64 OOP announcements were already made, and we were just waiting on Westside?

The basket-weave material is fraying pretty bad at the 'U' part of the shoulder strap. Looks close to tearing. Should hopefully remain functional,...

I agree, BUT he says a Mako3 is fading hard. So while Evidence is the correct answer for you and me, it's probably not the right answer for the dude who necroed this thread

Anyone throwing Resistors? Does it handle OS utility duties and gnarly headwinds? What other mids and fairways do you carry around it?

Yeah, Innova runs can feel so different from each other. As an example, usually I dislike Champ plastic, but a buddy picked up a C-Line FD that feels perfect in the hand. It feels a lot like Opto...

How long have you been playing and how far do you throw? All discs fade to various degrees, but depending on how you throw they will fade more. If you're new then you're likely not putting much...

It's all personal preference. For me, Innova Star plastic is too slick and many runs are too firm, while G* (or Z flx) are too floppy in most weather conditions. Trilogy premium plastic fits right...
