I can still play with an abbreviated reach back and follow thru but it hurts like hell afterwards and especially the next day.

I finally decided to just shut it down after our New Years Day event because I couldn't make it thru a round on a pitch 'n putt. Its gotten a little better recently and I think I am going to start trying to rehab it back into shape soon...


Tried learning to throw lefty a bit this spring but my bad left knee cant handle the torque...The same knee that ended my bowling career...ugh

Based on your posts I think you've got a longer forehand than me. Mine tops out around 425-450' and I utilize it primarily from approach range to 400'.

Haha that may be true, but you could say the exact same thing about my Bh.

So your reason for not throwing the Particle is lame ha ha ha. Life is too short not to throw your favorite discs. I'll get to the soft Proxy in a moment, but I really think the Particle is the best MVP true putter driver (Entropy is hybrid like Vertex). It's so low profile, fast, and impeccably stable while still gliding as well as all of MVP family stable/overstable putters. I have a stiff N that I already have a flex anny shot ace and so many ctps when I empty my bag at a hole that I call it the Parkticle. I also have a soft that is faster, straighter/later fade, with more glidr that is also great driver and gets thrown often FH and on lower lines. These are making me totally rethink my mids because of how fast, straight, and low they can fly and still get D.

I just started throwing the soft Proxy, and by the looks of your video I have a run brother of the one you carry. This disc would be the real "MVP putter Comet" if there ever was such a thing. It's a tick slower than my Atoms and Particles, but it glides like no other MVP putter I've thrown and has that magical stability. This disc has got me pretty excited to get more familar with and pairs perfectly with the Particle.

I finally found a good Crave tonight after buying a 177 by mistake and passing on some puddle tops and lightweight variants. The one I got is a grippy yellow/red OM N with a fairly high PLH and a slight dome scaling 174. This disc incredible and may be exactly what I've been looking for. I can't explain why I throw it as far as my Volts, but I'll take it! Mine has a perfect stability where I can rip it flat and it pushes, but does not turn. It also flies far on all different lines. I haven't even thrown it FH yet, but I think I'm going to really like this disc.

Insanity-I have one of these I really like as well. It is very much like my beat red champystar PD. I can really manipulate this disc with speed and angle to do many different lines and distances FH and BH. It feels like a beat to snot Wrath.

I've thrown the Wrath enough now to say confidently that it is a perfect general overstable mold to build a bag around. It is very much like an overstable C or S PD. I'm bagging a gummy Proton with slight dome that is straight and glidey for a Wrath. It is still very HSS, but with a later and more forward fade. This one is sneaky long. I pair it with a flat and gummy N that is more of a traditional overstable disc. This disc hyzers the same every time.

At my armspeed these days I get a little more D out of my domey P Catalysts, but I do appreciate my Mayhems as well. Even at my average 425' drive the Mayhem is incredibly straight and accurate. I interchange them with my Catalysts when the wind is gusting. Both discs really blow anything else I've thrown away. I'll be 41 soon and these discs still let me look like a ripper to the average dude at league.

I am doing some different OS bookends. I really like my Deflector and should be trying a Pyro soon. I'm also bagging a Phase and have seen it do some special things as far as getting out of trouble. And the thumber is a huge barrel roll that can be jaw dropping long.

Phase is one of the most underrated discs out there. I have two first runs I bought from Aim and they bomb.
