That's the Armus I remembered. Posts a (semi) promising thread and then proceeds to quickly landfill it.

As an aside, there's a new form guru on here that can fix all your form flaws. So that's cool right? He's really good too. Been playing well over 5 months now.

The worst setup I could imagine:

Putter: Aerobie Arrow
Mids: RT Sparrow, Innova Wolf
Driver: Albatross, Aerobie Epic

If you can hit even par over 18 holes with this setup, I would pay good money to see that.

Since sparrow and albatross are not PDGA approved it'll have to be a 3 disc round.

Robbio123 gave you a bum steer AP. From 2004 - 2014 I was sponsored by Aerobie; threw almost exclusively Aerobie discs (with a few Predators and Flicks thrown in). Got to the 980s in ratings. You could do WAY worse than the Epic and the Arrow!

Interesting - not sure about the Albatross, but I do believe the Epic is PDGA approved. It is stamped as such on the disc. I recall looking that one up a couple years back when asked on a card and verifying it is on the approved disc list at PDGAcom.

I will say - while I'm not sure about the Albatross, that disc is nearly impossible to throw well. that thing turned completely over when thrown on max hyzer angle - which is hilarious to drop on an unsuspecting Ript Revenge round opponent

Ahh - never mind - I thought you referenced the Epic when you mentioned the sparrow. Sorry to have spam'd.

If I want to throw some plastic, that I don't really jive with, I will go pull some out of the garage.
I forgot my bag at home on league day once. I ended up playing with the round with some old crusty discs a buddy had in his trunk. I ended up having a decent round, a bit better than my average at the time. He was pissed(jokingly) that I beat him with his shotty old discs. It was actually a fun and challenging round since I kind of had no idea what those discs were going to do the first time I threw them.. SO, I like what Armus is trying to do here. I don't have any suggestions, since I really have no basis to judge what discs are the worst.

This bag's no problem: Throw the Zone on every shot and you'll score well!
