Wait, were talking about jump putting right?

Joking aside, I have three fd's in the bag and the glow is the most stable by a good bit my hybrid s-line and 3rd run c-line both require a hyzer flip for a straight shot, where my glow can be thrown flat and have zero high speed turn.
Awesome! I will be getting mine tomorrow and I will be playing BRP and VisionQuest on SATURDAYYY and sunday

So I got out and played a couple fairly wooded courses (Kaposia is very wooded) . the 175g Champ Glow FD played excellent. I parked hole 6, which is a really straight shot up a small hill tunnel of trees, blind shot. The FD holds SO straight. in Low wind its a great and comfortable disc to hold and throw. 7/4/-1/1 is kinda how it flew. Very nice and controllable through the woods. Good speed. Could get a lil flippy with any headwind. This one was going up with a Champ Glow TL. Really similar, but the TL is a tad slower, tad more HSS...about the same otherwise, but I actually prefer the feel of the FD. In lower wind/wooded situations, I like the FD. TL is great too.

I parked hole 6, which is a really straight shot up a small hill tunnel of trees, blind shot. then parked hole 7, Not typically what I'd throw a straight fairway on. But put some hyzer on it and threw it like a mid, and it pinned it! The FD holds SO straight. Also parked hole 15, slightly uphill straight shot as well. in Low wind its a great and comfortable disc to hold and throw. 7/4/-1/1 is kinda how it flew. Very nice and controllable through the woods. Good speed. Could get a lil flippy with any headwind. This one was going up with a Champ Glow TL.

The FD is less stable than a TL.

The FD2 is awful. Can't believe it was released.

FD3 if great

FD2 isn't awful, it's a Banshee in better plastic! (if that's what you want)

My C-line flies like a steaming turd. Perhaps they vary

Oh man that new Champion Steaming Turd is SUCH a meathook. It just soars up and then PLOP! straight into the ground, just destroys the earth...there's mudd EVERYWHERE! Like a bowl of chocolate pudding exploded as it hits the ground. You need one of these sh!ts bad! It's a steamy bomber. and...it FLOATS IN WATER!
