That's reasonable with DX. The abrasions base plastic discs accumulate act like the dimples on a golf ball, breaking up the air surrounding the disc and aiding in distance. I can get more technical but yeah, with DX that makes sense I suppose.

More importantly, do you get more distance with a soft plate DX or a firm plate Champion/Star?

I suppose Zenbot will eulogize you after you die on that hill?

Why would you have someone who hates me eulogize me? Are you going to roast me after I'm dead or something?

I was under the impression his feelings toward you are closer to "strongly despise," but fall short of true hatred.

DX is kinda different, I don't throw it but it makes things like a firebird controllable... biggest difference I noticed was between champ and star. I found those the most comparable. Straight line (champ) vs small S (star). Straightest line is always shortest distance between 2 points... but I'm still only talking about 5-10' (tops)

Stay away from MY yellow comets, they're all MINE I just haven't bought them yet.

Don't fool yourself. If you aren't a Cheez-It cracker, he hates you.

You have never noticed the strange awesomeness that is a yellow Soft X APX? It's the next best thing to a swirl.

Specifically with XD's I call Bull****. In the 90's the stiff DX for years came out domey, the soft DX came out flat. The flat XD's bombed. The best thing that happened to the XD in the 90's was when they started running them in the softer putter plastic from the Aviar PandA. Less dome; more bomb.

Stiff flight plates are hooey.

That was the idea. We already have a private social group forming your dais.

Also I call BS on the stiff flight plate theory because my experience, not backed by any sort of science, is that PFN pro plastic has more "spring" out of your hand and goes farther.
