Y’all seen the gaurdian Lion in the Discmania active line? Looks like it could be similar to the Yikun Claws without the Hedrick rings. Might be worth checking out.

Did you see a profile? I was excited when numbers came out but they are editing the numbers to 3 speed not 1.

I’ve had a few days throwing my xt Polecat and I’m really liking it. Feels very similar to the old dx plastic. Flies the same as my dx as well. I’ve not noticed any difference so far. The new dx does feel a bit waxy compared to the old dx ( had to go check it out in person )
Headed out the the local course to throw some more today, so I can report back later if I’ve any new info on it.
But so far, xt will probably replace the dx in the bag for now. That is unless the xt gets harder to find

In a different thread, Tylerc mentioned using a only Polecat to play Winthrop Gold.

Which lid would you choose to play a long open course?

I'm thinking the Zephyr check all my preference boxes. Slow and controllable enough for tight gaps, small enough for putting (Ultrastars are too weird for putting IMO), they can do decent distance, they roll well, etc. Honorable mention to UltraStars and Polecats.

Polecat for me. Fits in the basket even better than the zephyr and goes just as far.

Fwiw I usually play Zephyr for one disc for superclass reasons.

Recently played a retro (attire included) zephyr round at Wundervu dgc. Got one of my best birdies yet on the signature tunnel hole. Drop in 3 on a 410' dead straight hole with an S bend at the end with a 10' wide fairway.

It would have to be a Polecat for me. Because the Polecat is the only lid I own.
