And lids are awesome. I keep one handy for some pre-round catch to warm up (Super Hero) or if a little kid comes along and wants to try to play with me (Polecat) cuz I'm coolz like dat.
Me and Hedfan plan on doing alot of field work as soon as the weather permits.

You guys should get a good lid like a Super Hero and play some long distance catch too, it works wonders for your form.

This is how i decided to drop to just fairway drivers for the time being and the few rounds i have played since then my scores have been about the same if not a couple shots better.

Like always good advice from BrotherDave

As far as driving goes I can't say I'm a huge fan of lids. Tui's are selling for under 10 bucks at gottago, they are made in a clear premium champion like plastic.

Yeah, they're extremely unforgiving of OAT. That's what makes them so good. If you can figure out how to smoothly snap a lid it makes driving a regular disc seem so much easier.

That Tui sounds pretty cool actually. What common disc does it most resemble/fly like? And what's the plastic like, gummy or stiff?

I've got so many ideas for this spring it's unreal! UN-FREAKING REAL! (Just for you Johnson) If we break down your bag and break down mine I think the two of us could easily plase Tag 1 Tag two in this summer's Up-North Disc Golf League. My Pirahna is for experts only and that's why you may not like it but soon you will see it's awesomeness you just wait and see.

Only 3-4 more days till our GottaGo shipment arrives, I can't wait!!!

My Vibram mini is gonna be sick!!!!
