I just tried a OLS for the first time. That disc is amazing. Easy, dependable, accuracy.

Drone.

I've been through Pigs, Gators, Mortars, Rhynos, etc.

Beef + Glide is a wonderful thing. Too bad they're basically OOP.

Beef+Glide is a wonderful thing when you play in calm conditions and want a nice predictable overstable finish. It's a terrible thing when the wind is howling though, which is primarily when my beefy discs earn their keep. That's why I replaced my Drone with its slower brick of a cousin, the Zone. No glide at all, even in a hurricane.

To each their own. I recently benched the Drone just for curiosities sake, but I've been throwing them since their release. They aren't too glidey and ANY disc will be affected by the wind. Just know your nose angles and the direction the wind is going - if the bottom of any disc is exposed to the wind it's gonna glide extra in that direction. Exposing the top of the disc will cause it to be pushed down.

Not saying you shouldn't switch to the Zone because they're an absolutely awesome mold. Just saying reading the wind is more important than which disc you choose to blame the wind on. EDIT: sometimes "riding the wind" is super beneficial as well.

That was a rare blend. I Wish I had it for my Magnet the Crazy Tuff blend from Ledgestone Tournament a few years ago but they sold out right away, at least all discs above the 164-165 gram.

The un-inked, unknown weight Star lite wraith I found on Sunday. I threw it from the parking lot into a field anticipating leaving it for someone who needed it. It flew way too beautifully and far. I went and retrieved it. I counted over 160 paces.

Also I like recon mortar 1.4’s.

That it can be. I have gotten good at riding the wind though some molds are not for any wind as they are too flippy in the understable category

Discraft Impact, just got one this week in an esp/flx mystery box and it’s quickly became my new favorite fairway. Amazing disc.
