He was filming a fishing vid last week and... well lets just say he is probably one of the unluckiest and luckiest people ever, all in the span of 20min...






That's cold...

It was cold but I was only in there about 2 minutes. There was a whirlpool happening right there and my disc was bobbing around in there and finally got close enough for me to snag. Once I dried my feet it was like it never happened.

What was even colder was the fact it was a birdie putt rollaway. I can still hear the donk in my mind.

I swear, sometimes I feel like I could throw a cinderblock up there and it would rollaway...

Just here to say Gyro is REAL. Im building an all mvp bag. Got my first throws in today with the new plastic. Thoughts:

173g Neutron Catalyst: great out the box. Farthest disc i have ever thrown fresh out the box. Got putts on holes i couldnt reach for years. 50ft extra distance over my Cranks. Wont make the bag,as i can see these being too flippy too quickly.

172g N Octane: This is a great feeling distance driver. I can see this beating into a workhorse bomber. It had 30ft distance on my used prime Esp Cranks consistently. Will make the bag in various plastics and weights.

Eclipse Volt 173g: Sooo straight. I felt this disc did one thing. It flies dead straight to about 340ft then has a calm fade to the ground. It just wants to go straight. It wont make the bag. I want something with the same flight but faster. Speed 10 volt anyone?

Eclipse Vector 174g: this flew just like my new Z Wasp. Has a good useable overstable flight. Will replace the wasp no problem. Wont skip a beat...in the bag

Ion electron 174: wow , mvp has come a long ways. I bought one of the first Ions as a curious catch disc. Played catch a few times then gave it away. Anyway, i love this plastic. It feels great. Love the low profile compared to my wizards. Great approach disc and putter...in the bag.. Money

This is how im hoping to finish the bag.

Force: idk. I need something for flex forehand distance and backhand distance when windy. With similar rim width. Suggestions?

Vulture= idk trying the Tesla next. Suggestions?

Mantis: have a Relay coming but from what i hear it may be too understable. Will try an AMP.

Buzzz: Matrix. Have one on the way. Hope they line up

For the Force, take a look at the Nitro and Phase. I like the Phase better, as the tops are very flat and they flex well to me. Very much like an old Star Xcaliber or one of those rare flat ESP Forces. Nitro has some dome but flies most like a Force out of the box.

Done sleep on the Plasma Crave as a Mantis replacement. It’s a lot like a TL and I’ve heard a Mantis compared to a TL. For me the have a hint of turn and a bit of fade but fly great in tunnels and low ceiling shots. Really nice disc.

threw my beat plaz ion on a tommy over a big ass bush that was at least 15 feet tall and i was about 30 out and stuck it

also had about a 150ft throw in with my beat plaz ion for my first 2 ever on this 500ft hole (this was cooler than half the aces ive gotten)

Yes the Crave is pretty sweet ... I don't think the Amp will work as a lower speed more stable driver it powers down horribly... given that you threw an eclipse Volt dead straight.. I think I would say get an Inertia you will have the Relay extra distance version and the Amp would be redundant if you are throwing that Volt straight.

I think if I was you and I had plastic fever and discounted a Relay before throwing it I would eyeball an Inertia and a Resistor... the Crave will be kinda in between.

I'm surprised the volt didn't work out

(Disclaimer: I haven't really thrown a Resistor more than 5 times but molds of note)
