Now...Any rumors on protege pats? or maybe gravity? I am a big fan of SE Leos for their flippyness. I want something like that with good grip. I have a excel but who knows how long that'll last.

I have two 166g icon bandits. One is flat top (blue)the other has some dome and makes the "heart beat" sound when pressed down(purple). Any clues on which one will be more understable? Haven't had a chance to play lately.

Oh and I love the mongoose for my wimp arm. Ian described it somewhere perfectly, saying it was like a speed 9 mamba. It feels like that to me more than a SW or RR.

"Heart beat" sound is commonly referred to as "poppy-top". Generally, poppy-top discs are more overstable and flatter ones are faster and flippier.

What type/color outlaw should I be looking for if I want to replace my pop top McBeth star destroyer? I like the disc but it's almost too overstable even for what I want it for - and I've been looking for a reason to get an outlaw in the bag anyway.

I've been using Excel Patriots for a year or two as replacements for Pro Leopards. The oldest one is trick disc flippy now, hyzer flip to turnover lines or standstill hzyerflips. The second one (3 or 4 months in bag) is a slow leaking understable for turnovers. I still keep an Icon for dead straight shots (I throw my fairway drivers 300'), this is where the Patriot is better IMO than the Leopard. I found Leopards to be more of a turn and fade disc while a Patriot just goes straight. Excel works in quickly (3 or 4 good hits gets it to seasoned Icon) but will get into that really flippy range while Icon/Pinnacle takes forever to get there.

^Thanks for the answers guys! Bhadella, glad the excel is working as a pro leo replacement, that is what I was hoping for.

I saw a vid on FB a couple weeks ago about Pinnacle Phenoms. Does anyone know if or when they will be for sale anywhere?

Really hoping that Pinacle Phenom = CE Eagle-L

Anyone order from the DGBM recently. How long does it usually take to get your order?

They were up on legacydiscsproshop.com for a few days, but looks like they're sold out now. They should be dropping soon...

If they do a Friday release I usually get it the following Thursday. I know they sometimes run into issues and occasionally have delays in shipping. It's a small crew doing everything. If it's been a while send them an e-mail, I know they were having some delays the last couple weeks.
