The 2021 GMC Swirly one I got seems like it would season into a Z-Buzzz within a year or two, so I have high hopes. The only issue is I need teal only discs. Good to know some people have pretty...

Yeah currently I bag some a pretty stable Z Buzzz as my next step down from that Lucid-X Verdict/ Quake slot. What does FF mean?

Does anybody have any experiences when it comes to seasoning in the Quake and/or Cycling it? I just got a 2021 swirly Quake in, and gave it a couple test throws against my current OS mid staple, a...

I don't actively think about engaging my hips. And the whole idea about having your hips 'fire' seems so bad. As long as you put your body in the right position, and shift your weight accordingly,...

Indeed it's very much a waiting game, and it goes against natural intuition on what a powerful throw should feel like, but damn when you do it, it comes out effortlessly, cleanly, and with lots of...

Some of the biggest arms in disc golf like Garret Gurthie and Thomas Gilbert actually in a sense 'extend' their power pocket further out in front of them by creating an angle far greater than 90...

Uli actively teaches the pump in sync with the x-step to help two major flaws people just getting into the backhand throw have: timing and turning around too early. When you're able to pump the disc...

Another disc instead of the Teebird as a straighter disc! Blasphemy! Season that Teebird in and let it become straight.

Every now and then a run of Z-Flx Buzzz OS is suuuper beefy. A MF Gator probably fits the bill too. I usually jump straight up to a Lucid-X Justice if I need Zone levels of stability but into big...

Now I'm not saying MVP used the same Pilot mold for the Ohm, because obviously the production has to be different since one is an overmold and one is a conventional mold, but the two are very, very...

Hey, the Pilot and Ohm are virtually the same disc, so I can hold out hope. I love the Reactor but I don't love the overmold.

It only took about a week or so to beat my new star Barsby Roadrunner into something that resembled about -3/1. After a month or so it became a -4/1 and it has stayed that way since.

I don't think the Anax is quite as slow as an 8 speed, but it's definitely a 9 speed.

I took my micrometer and measured the average of an Anax's rim to be 18.8mm, while the average of a...

Both Crave and FD fly like a neutral Fairway with equal parts small turn and fade. FD is a faster disc with bulkier rim though. The FD measures in at 17.8mm, while Crave is at 17.1mm. FDs are...

I saw a buddy's Italian FD today and I can confirm, the wing is definitely differently shaped. It's more of a conventional concave wing as opposed to the very subtle S-shape of the original FD.
