Its been a main thrower for over two years now, has been run over and is still quite stable. More stable than my 2015 is, although that one came to me used and is further through the life cycle...

And a follow up to my previous post: The 2020 was shorter and more overstable all day then the 2018. I'll reserve judgement on it being "more neutral" until it happens. Its a great Sexton Firebird, either way.
Thanks for the review, I mostly have the 2018 vintage, people seem to say that was the least OS run so far. The only other Sexton I have is a 2016, which is more stable than each of the 18s I own. I'll probably just have to grab a couple 2020s anyways to see how they stack up.

I wrapped up my semester today. I played this afternoon with the bag listed above. I had ordered a MVP Black Hole and I set it up tonight. I'm really gonna enjoy it!

Got some holes in today with the same bag I've been using. Had some nice drives with the Sidewinder. The Roadrunner has been good too, it has picked up some glide since last year.

Roadrunners are so underrated. I put one in my bag as a roller, but I use almost every round for something other than a roller. Do you find them more stable than the numbers indicate?

Definitely. Its stability falls between my GStar Sidewinder and Champ Sidewinder.

I'm really developing an affinity for those backup putters. I just love putting.

I've been playing the last couple days with the same bag I've been using minus the Champ Sidewinder. The Comet was flying great today.

I've been carrying the full bag but kinda tinkering with a Wizard/Comet/TeeBird/Firebird/Sidewinder skeleton. I'll try to figure out what I can accomplish with that setup and when I need the others.

Yesterday I got to play redesigned Larson Park. It's always a nice test of your game and bag to see how it matches up to a new course. I leaned on the Sidewinder throughout but there were also opportunities for the Comet and the Sexton Firebird off the tee. The discs that did not get used were the Destroyer, Roadrunner, Buzzz and TeeBird.

167 4x Star Destroyer

175 2018 Sexton Firebird
167 12x Champ Firebird
172 4x Champ Thunderbird
168 HF Star Roadrunner
167 GStar Sidewinder
170 AJ Star TeeBird

177 Z Glo Buzzz
179 2019 MJ Comet

175 BT Hard Harp
171 Soft Ion
175 Soft Wizard
172 Soft Wizard
175 Nikko Wizards (2)

My arm is still in rough shape from the muscle I pulled back in March. I've tried taking time off and lately I've been stretching consistently. My sister (a physical therapist) thinks I might have a ruptured tendon. Its not extremely painful and it hasn't hampered my game much. It is mainly tight and sore after I throw. I can't play as much as I used to. I blame SD86 for jinxing my youth. I may be forced to take more time off in order to heal up. Or maybe just concentrate on putting practice for a while.

Update: So I haven't thrown since my round at Larson Park. Last week I went in for a preliminary appointment and this yesterday I had an MRI on my shoulder. The doctor doesn't think I did any structural damage, calling it a muscle strain. He wants me to rest up for the next month after which I may be able to resume throwing.
