Beware of the Gold, I got one with such a slick surface that I had to spray it with Plasti-dip to prevent it from slipping out of my hand, at least/hopefully until it gets some wear on it.

Squirrely but, at least living up to its name.

I just pulled my Squirrel out of storage and really gave it it's first good test in the field. Holy cow, this is the mid I was missing. Nothing that MVP makes is like this disc. Not even close. It's delightfully flippy and glidey. I'm going to bag it right away. As a Christian, I have no problem supporting a Christian disc maker.

BUT, do any of you guys have problems with the stamp on this thing? It stained my Inertia in the bag tonight. And also when I got the disc out of the storage box, it had a weird film all over it, like the stamp is turning into powdery junk or something. It's hard to explain, but I need to buy some acetone and get rid of that stamp. It's a green Gold disc with a reddish foil-like stamp.

All mine are Gold plastic and are red with yellow stamp. No issues with them whatsoever.

And congrats on taking a night off the Kool-Aid and trying something new. After two years carrying the Squirrel, the Salient Antidote is giving it a run for its money for that spot in the bag with the Crosslap Lucky getting a trial this weekend. It'll be a sad day if I pull the Squirrel as it has served me well.

The Squirrel is not new....it was just put away for well over a year. I actually have you to thank for plugging it so much on here. I should have had it in my bag this whole time.

And that stamp thing is weird, but I'm just going to wipe it.

I've only fondled a Pure, and have admit it felt pretty nice. But I have no use for it. My Ions are all I need. And if not, there are always Anodes, or my stack of sweet Magics that sit unthrown.

It would fit in the same slot as the Anode. I wouldn't try to change that since you're already throwing Ions, and their cores are so similar. It is far and away the nicest of the neutral flying putters I've thrown though so if you're interested, let me know.
