I think to some degree Paul throws the discs that feels good in the hand. .. and then makes that disc fly like he wants by chosing the right plastic and degree of beaten in disc. .

The ZONE feels good in his hands in a way the likes of Aviar X3 and others never did. . .just my thought

He seems to like the drone. I also like the drone over the buzzz os.

IDK if it was because of the wind this past week, but Paul didn't seem to throw the Kong much, if at all. All his long drives were with Forces. Is he not liking the Kong, or were the fairways in KS just too tight for the Kong to be reliable?

Probably not too tight as much as it was too windy

That wind looked horrible. I bet none of those guys were using anything even remotely flippy for drives.

Even Conrads Firebirds were getting pushed around a bit.

McBeast is probably not throwing the Buzzz OS because he's throwing the Zone... a LOT.

As someone that played there last week as well - It was too damned windy for EVERYTHING except for the most OS discs. Thursday, I either threw a Raptor or a Zone off of the tee all day. Sustained 20-25 MPH winds with 40-45 MPH gusts. It felt like i was riding a motorcycle for 3 hours without a helmet or goggles on.

Yeah. I don't think I've ever attempted to even play in winds that strong. I'd have to revamp my bag entirely to play a tourny in heavy wind like that.

I'd be relying on XCals and Firebirds a lot. My score would suck too.

We have winds like that here in ND fairly regularly, and I’ve played a couple tournaments in 25+ winds. From my experience, the Ams that do well in those conditions do so not just by throwing OS Discs on hyzer and playing conservatively, but also by landing their discs in a spot where they’re putting/throwing with a tailwind or left to right. It’s not very scary or difficult putting from circles edge with a tailwind, but with a headwind at that distance you start seeing people putt with OS mids, putt with their disc upside down, or just layup.
