The Wombat 3 is just a slightly slower fast midrange version of the Impact. I am more mad that Discraft is stopping the Stalker mold and right now Discraft is just burning through the inventory of discs, hard to find weights above 174 grams but then I like the Stalker at 170-172 gram weight set but I got that mold 2018 as an XL replacement as the Z went oop. Now I have about 6 of the Z Stalker as back up for the one in my bag and with how long the plastic lasts I am good. I still have a XL in ESP in my bag from 2008 as it flew better then the Z XL that is more flippy for some reason. I am only 30 right now, not sure If I should be posting though.
I found an XL many years ago. Was already stuck on the t-bird. At my level, it always struck me as very similar, but with more mid style versatility, if not wind fighting ability. It's a fun thrower. It still lives in my B bag.

I use mostly a Z Stalker now as of 2018, found the mold flies like a straighter XL in terms of the dump at the end. More like the old 2000's ESP XL in flight.

Have you guys seen the big Z discraft sting? It's got a Scorpion on it.. I want one. It's an old urge and a different disc but hey can't fly much worse than the Innova one I have...

So I threw some hammers in specific situations and forehand snap rollers in others. Never even thought about throwing those off the tee until I encountered players who did.

Even now, while I work occasionally on improving my forehand, I just don't have any great desire to spend enough time on it to get great distance. I figure working out the flaws in my backhand is enough work for me, these days.
Same here. I remember the first time I threw a golf disc. Couldn't believe how different it was compared to a regular frisbee or even one of those Aerobie frisbees I still have with the rubber outer edge. Guess it didn't help that aside from a Teebird and a R-Pro Dart that the other discs I was given to play with at first were pretty OS.

I still have an old 1980's second generation Aerobie Pro flying ring, was my dads toy that hurts to catch due to the Metal in the ring, as of the late 1990's-early 2000's they switched the inside for plastic.

What I hate is the hills are steeper and the air is thinner. I go to a ski resort with some youngsters every summer (they are in their thirties) and I have to make them stop for a break before we get to the peak. Fifteen minutes is usually good.

Thing that makes me feel good is watching all the young kids bring huge ass backpack bags with 50 discs where they take 5 min each shot to decide which disc to n00b hyzer OOB. So being old ain't always bad..........

I've been playing with a group of 30 somethings this past year. They've gotten real good at slowing down for me and allowing me my extra breaks. I do appreciate it!

i remember when.....

i saw Steve Wisecup throwing Midnight Flyers the length of a football field warming up before a round in 82'.

the second year i was playing i met a guy from Las Vegas that could throw my mini (i got a few in a box of Super Puppies) upside down forehand that flipped completely over and flew almost the length of that same football field. he also sold me a proto star Aero that i used as my driver til 94'.
