There have been a lot of threads on these boards about 'bracing' against your front leg. My brief, non-expert interpretation of it: it's how you anchor your leg to allow force and weight transfer...

For me it was incorporating weight transfer through my brace leg. Specifically, it was learning to get my front foot at 90* to the target line, or even a little closed, to enable a brace. An open...

Jawbreaker is a fantastic plastic for wet conditions, but I don't think it's terribly common for their driver molds.

That is my experience as well. A couple winters ago I bought some G* discs for the winter and was very disappointed. Great in cold and dry conditions or after the snow has crusted over. But...

I can't speak to your PreMac question, because I've only been throwing Emacs for around 2 years and PreMacs were long gone by then. As for Verdicts and Emacs, that is a classic pairing with very...

Thanks for the tip, you're right that I'd rather throw a fast mid than a slow fairway. That being said, I already bag a Stag at 8/5/-1/2 so a Stalker would be a lot of overlap. I'm not looking for...

Hand feel is a big deal to me. It's a big part of why I throw Emacs instead of Rocs, and Zones instead of Harps. One thing I wish is that narrow (speed 6/7) fairway drivers felt better in my hand. ...

+1 for the Colt recommendation. Personally I can't putt them because they're too shallow, so that probably makes them perfect for the OP.

I bagged Crowns for a season. It's a great, underrated mold. I ultimately moved onto Judges because:
a) I wanted more plastic options and a more reliable inventory, and this was pre-Nikko so...

Berg is my main approach disc, so that fits the criteria.

If we're just talking most used off the tee, then lately that has been a Hatchet for me. Hatchets fly super straight up at elevation...

Played an Alaska course that had old beer kegs placed on top of poles for objects. Pretty fun, and the kegs make a delightful noise when you make a putt.

Berg was approved 5 years ago. It's low glide, neutral, and pretty immune to wind.

Berg is pretty new but it's the most unique disc I've thrown. It's incredibly slow -- a true speed 1 disc. It has a headwind-fighting 0 turn, and yet still fades pretty minimally like your average...
