Now I feel better...

Sorry Brad, as I said I was at a race track all day. Hot and humid weather can take quite the mental toll on someone. I just wanted to get the answers out to the players instead of making them wait. Again I'm sorry for my grammar tonight.

Serious question for Scott: do you pronounce our and are the same way? The reason I ask is that I've seen you do that before, and I had never seen anyone else make that substitution before.

If we could let's keep the threads on the topic that they are about. I have said many times that my grammar is not very good at all. I'm currantly working on this to make it better. If my grammar is making me a terrible CSR than I am very sorry to all the players that I try and help out.

If anyone has any questions for me that have nothing to do with Vein or Backdraft please PM me or email me.

I know nothing about these discs. Back Draft is obviously a driver...what the heck is the Vein? What plastics are these being molded in? I've been extremely vocal about Salient conduct thus far, but I like to think I've been equally as vocal about how amazing their plastic blends are. I'm hoping that these could be the discs that could fulfill that potential.

Especially the Back Draft in Cryo. I am intrigued to see Cryo durability in a driver. Last question (s?) Is there a planned release date and when are they being submitted for PDGA approval?
