So, with the current DG landscape the way it is...

When I switch my bag over to exactly what PMcB throws should I throw my old discs into a river or a vat of BBQ sauce?

It's not a true stable disc though. I've seen a couple of people that can throw 500' get turn out of them on a flat drive. It's just that most people can't get them up to speed so they feel really overstable.

Yeah. I definitely don't throw 500', but I've thrown a couple Flicks that had high speed turn. The thing with the Flick is, it lands hard all the time and gets beat up quickly. Z Flicks seem to lose stability somewhat quickly simply because they get beat up so fast.

I guess if McBeth did throw Flicks he'd probably be burning through quite a few of them because they wear out so fast.

I'll agree the Firebird has more consistent beef and is far less prone to flipping on hard rips than a Flick.

I've only thrown a couple but there is definitely a huge difference between fresh-ish and beat in. Fresh they feel like they want to take my fingers with them as they go left. Beat in they hold straight way longer, I feel like 50-70' more distance for me and I'm nowhere near 500' power.

I really don't like the Flick. Feels terrible/shallow/sharp, way too OS for me, and then changes a lot.

Will we see see an uptick in DC discs in peoples signatures the next 4 years?

All of a sudden people will remember that the Force is a great disc, the Wasp can be the core of your mid-game, and shine some light on some newer molds like the Vulture and Undertaker
