But to answer the question, I am excited to try and NOT buy ANY new discs this year --- I mean, I know it wont happen but I would like to limit it. I've got more than enough in selection and options and backups. I just need to practice.

So I'm excited to stick with what I got and practice to the point of being 'good' at it haha

I'm from Nebraska, so I hear you on the whole wind thing. And Trespasses are typically squirelly in the wind for sure. Lucid-X Trespass is great though, even in a 10-15 mph headwind. More than that and you start having to worry about giving it the perfect amount of hyzer...at that point you're better off throwing an Enforcer. I foresee the Raider as basically being a commonly available version of a Lucid-X Trespass; something with reliable fade below 10 mph headwinds, a max distance crusher in the 10-15 mph range, and a turnover disc above that. So yeah, fairly Detroyerish I guess.
Just heard on DGAM that they aren't sure what the speed of the Raider will be (12 or 13). Honestly, if it ends up being 13 that will be a big disappointment for me. It's the difference between me potentially bagging 3, and 0.

So I got to throw my new stuff from Infinite today, and it was a great day for it. 50 and not much wind. This may seem an odd place to post this, but I had promised I would in this thread, somhere we are.

The Slab... mine is a C blend X out with no metal flake to it. It’s one of the most overatable discs I’ve tried, the hand feel is a very slightly smaller rimmed Stiletto, and the flight reminds me of the first run Stiletto or Rask. Have heard the metal flake ones are less OS and I’ll have to try one, but this thing is great. I knew it was a beef monster when I had just thrown my new Firebird(new run is very good BTW, almost FAF and pearly) which is plenty OS about 375 with a good fade, and then I throw this thing on the exact same line and it is about 330 and 50 more feet left.

I adjusted and eventually got it near 400, probably can get a bit more if my arm was feeling better but this guy is super OS and I love it.

The Exodus is also a C blend X out, and this plastic is intensely nostalgic for me. Super opaque yet somewhat grippy Champ like was available in 2012 when I started and has a very good flight. Was getting 360-380 out of it backhand and I think there is more to be had once some glide beats into it. It’s very straight to fade for now, though I did see some turn on my harder throws. The S and I blends probably are truer to numbers at first.

The Ra I didn’t know about, I don’t usually like V style rims that are convex, but the bead makes it so that you can’t feel it. I went in thinking it was a Bard, it’s not. It’s not that stable, more like an old school Roc with a new body. It’s perhaps a tiny bit faster, and it will fade, but for a Champ plastic mid, it’s got a ton of glide and forward fade. I tried to torque it over a few times to see what would happen, and at 180 in the C blend it will fight of of it, still netted more right on a BH throw though.

Overall, I am very happy with all three and will be getting some more Slabs. It seems to me when a great, goofy OS disc comes out the next run isn’t so imposing(Rask, Stiletto, Ape were all less stable then the first run IMO) so I’d like a few more.

Yes, it was a perfect day today. I went and played in the morning, when it was cooler but still a great day for DG.

Thanks for the report. Sounds wayyyy too OS for my noodle arm; I'd end up using it like most use Firebirds, as an OS utility disc. But sounds like a good disc for people with high arm speeds like yourself.

Agree on the Ra. It reminds me of a Roc3 in flight. Good disc, but not beefy OS.

What would you like to see Infinite add to their lineup?

I need to try the Pharoh, since I think it might make a good King sub.
That might be my next purchase.

Some things Id like to see; do a Viper/Tachyon/Moab in both C and S maybe MF? I loved the Tachyon 4.1LF and the Moab is the only representation of that disc that you can readily buy and they are usually pretty expensive for whatever reason.

I like to use Shallow putters and it looks like theirs are a bit deeper. If something felt like a Swan with just a hint more stability Id likely use that.

Overall they have made some of the style discs I do like, and since they are in Innovas familiar plastic it makes them easy to acclimate to. They are supposed to have a couple of releases in 2019(have no idea what they are) and Ill be interested to see what those are!

The Pharaoh is a great disc. The Tomb is shallow, and straight to overstable.

And I'm very much looking forward to the new releases.

I say that Infinite Discs brings back the Super Stingray as a disc mold. That was a disc very similar to what a flat top Stingray would be. That was a good disc, my dad has one.

I love plastic, new molds but it is a relief that most of the decision making on what to use is over.

Well, over with for a while anyway.

I'll give you 2 weeks before your next disc purchase.

Same. Looking forward to the same bag as last year. Unless I have some kind of form breakthrough and start throwing 50'+ farther, no reason to change. I've got archer problems, not arrow problems.

Sorry, all you discs in boxes in the basement. I should let you live out your purpose sometime.
