I'm trying to get into thumbers. Will do some work with the Ascent and o-Lace. Four20 should be good for overhand shots. I'm excited!

I've got a firm ascent I'm working back in the bag with great success. I was thinking about pairing it up with a medium, but I didn't see too much chatter about them specifically. Anyone throw them? Am I correct in assuming they're more overstable and less likely to beat in?

I throw the ascent and i love it. picked up a 169M and it is overstable. i have another 174M ascent that is stable to understable. I love them both. I use the 174 for straight shots to slow anhyzer shots. I use the new 169 to be straight shots to hyzer shots.

A soft Ascent has become my go-to approach disc because I can either thumb or flick it & generally it will just hit & stick.

Yeah, that's exactly why I was interested in pairing it up with my firm. I love the hit and stick I get with my medium VP and I'm looking to recreate that same magic.

This is my current thrower



They did one run of these Woodies back before they figured out the Ascent flight #''s.

Its not the best colors for most disc golf courses, but I seem to be able to find it easier than the one it replaced, which was that pink and purple swirly type that looks like a womens downstairs parts.
I really like the way these look, so if you peeps see any more from this run, let me know.

I carry 2 Ascents. They are my #1 approach disc as well as my dedicated driver on wooded tunnel shots. Mine go straight as an arrow with minimal fade.
Love this disc!

When I absolutely need a disc to fade out for me, I grab the Ascent - it was what I thought the Banshee would be, although I have only thrown the latter in DX.
