FHowl was diggin Discraft before diggin Discraft was cool. I've disagreed with with him on a couple of occasions but the dude knows Discraft and I certainly respect his opinion on all things Discraft.

I like Discraft from the early time they were cool . . two of the discs in my bag have a 18y old phone number in them ( sold that apartment 18y ago but i think the disc are older than that )

I've only been playing for about 3.5 years but the Buzzz and Stalker were my first disc loves. Not thrilled with their new limited runs and pricing strategies but you know that already. 😁

I have 2 predators that I throw frequently, one has an ace in 2008 and one in 2011. The one from 2008 is just starting to get flippy, the 2011 one is basically my anax/Thunderbird disc.

I bag all discraft and dga because those are the discs I like the best and I'm most comfortable with. I urge anyone to throw what you like best, if that's 1,2 or 10 different companies product!

The limited runs have been a Discraft thing for a very long time. Lots of cool tournament only releases, makes it easier for them to raise money for those tournaments. Though I wish they would do full release for the most popular versions...

Yessir, you're definitely an OG Discraft dude. Stable is too, I get you guys mixed up.

I'm mainly referring to the recent McBeth stuff but I digress.

Lightning, did them back in the 90s. The First run of APX in 1999 were solid from what I've seen, but Swirl APXs followed right behind those.

It's all good I just wanted to share stories about 2 of my oldest discs!

I guess I don't notice much since I don't throw many of the same molds as McBeth

Straight, stable & comfortable to grip. I can get surgical in the woods with a heavy Z Stalker. I'd be lost if I didn't have it for standstill FH's.

The Wraith is the only other mold that I use equally FH & BH. Most everything else is dominant one way or the other.

Still confused why I don't see more DC pros using it.
