Stiff, can't really compare it to anything. The only other discs even close to that light that I've thrown are high speed drivers. It's slow, produces surpising distance, can handle a full rip if thrown with enough hyza, parachutes beautifully to the ground.

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

Too bad Jason doesn't have an account here he'd be proud lol. This site has given me so many ideas that I'm starting to go crazy being held up by this crap weather and lack of sunlight. If I fix my shoulder and my back I think what you said will probably come to be barring some random coming up from the cities.

Reguarding the Pirahna, it's not too bad. There, I said it.

My only recommendation would be too simplify your setup. Less molds. Maybe multiple weights and/or plastic in those molds. Try to do more with less. You will get better and score better. I'll let others pick tour discs.

Thanks for all the advice gentlemen. Any recommendations as far as slots I'm missing. The 150 flick is overstable but I feel as though it is more of a novelty specialty disc. Do you think a predator, firebird, banshee, whippet or something of that nature is something I need to add?

Yeah, I can see how the Flick could be a specialty thing. I'm assuming you'd probably prefer a more workable but still reliably overstable driver. I'd stay away from the xXx and the 11x Firebird, champ Viper, etc. Banshee's are good, Preds are good, regular 12x FB's aren't bad. You could just try and make do with a new champ Eagle-X or even a new Starfire/SOLF/QOLF. A Whippet is also bit of a one-trick pony. Other than that, you have everything covered.

Already missing the snake crane dude avatar... I've always wanted to try a pred, are they too meaty to get any distance? The XXX is a B.A. disc but I probably couldn't push one 220'. I do remember my starfire having a pretty nice big fade when it was new. Mine is pretty low profile and really flat, the new ones are domey and more blunt, just not a big fan...
