Well, it happened twice, it seems. #13 was eagled by 1025 and 1016 rated players (GG and Adam Hammes), and both were in circle one putts, not throw ins :)

Stack fork grip. Have had problems with my pinky. Usually during the first driving practice of the summer, when my fingers aren't yet used to it.

I hope it's a good driving putter, so you can say "The Gauntlet has been thrown" after every drive.

Last summer I built myself a "20 years ago"-bag, so it was limited to 1994 approved discs and earlier. Ended up with:

I haven't seen or thrown all the other discs mentioned in this thread, but I'd say first run Premium Respecti deserves a mention. I saw a big arm throw it on an anhyzer, it flexed out, and faded so...

You might also try PD2. I know some people who bomb and swear by the PD2. For a power thrower, P-PD2 flips a bit and is the longest one, while C- and S-lines are more overstable. Last summer when we...

I stopped going to tournaments.
I stopped trying to improve.
I stopped caring about bad shots and missed putts.
I found the fun in playing again.
