You are quoting a very loose interpretation of a paraphrased statement.

On the other side, I'm thinking getting to 1000 will be tougher than he thinks since a couple of those hot 1020 and 1030 rounds will drop from his most recent 25%.

A 1000-rating is a 1000-rating. He's a 1000-rated player. Against any field. WHERE he got those doesn't matter. PDGA rating is not a criterion-referenced construct. It's norm-referenced.

I like his 2 year extension. Means that my now trusty Get Freaky will be availible long enough for me to rack up enough backups should I lose some.

I really like the predictable smallish (compared to puddled Z and flat Z Zones) skip that these get. Makes parking 125-200' FH approaches super easy.

https://factorystore.discraft.com/co...s/brodie-smith

Product dropped today and already sold out?

"If you purchase more, your order will be canceled. Bot buyers beware, we will be banning users who attempt to abuse the system."

I don't bag Discraft, but I'm starting to think someone is experimenting with social media marketing/branding by building a bit of false product demand. I guess it could be legit, by only pumping out very small runs so they can increase the "sold out" hype. hmm....

https://factorystore.discraft.com/

They have a section just for Brodie, but nothing for Paul or Paige?

But then... no Brodie on this page:

Do you have one of his FLX Zones? I saw them at my local shop a couple and was tempted but didn't pull the trigger. I bag an ESP Zone and wondered how much different it was.

Yeah. Nice bit of gummy softness to it. My only experince with ESP is a puddle topped AT series and that thing skips like crazy amd is crazy OS.

Not sure about these particular FLX Zones, but my experience is that FLX Zones are more overstable than Z Zones.

I hear the older ESP Zones are some of the most OS, so these FLX Zones might be right up your alley.
And a FLX Zone will not skip like an ESP.

I am blissfully unaware of his social media content or tournament coverage. Don't be jealous.
