But the other side is the Star Eagle that was wicked overstable has now beat in to straight with nice fade so that it kinda overlaps the FD and the Teebird. These are the dilemmas where I get crazed again to figure out how to replace that more overstable 7 speed slot... or do I man up and throw a 5speed Verdict, or whimp out and throw the FD3 or Getaway? Gah! Keep marching on!

ru4 has a 10 year old nephew that does it for him. He gives the nephew a quarter for each disc he pulls out.

Pretty low if you ask me, I'd at least give him 4 bits.

Obvious answer is to just get a fresh star eagle and join the dark side of “cycling”

Yes, but, but, but... I haven’t thrown every 7 speed yet! I might want a Banshee or a XXX so it doesn’t beat in to overlap... oh, the struggle.

Ha! The struggle is real. Banshee has an eagle x wing so it’ll feel similar. Boom - now you’re buying more plastic

Not like I have not been standing on shore, looking pathetic, in hopes of some kid coming along to help.....but, nephews are now older and do it for beer.

Then buying backups as a few molds I use went oop like the Impact and the Shark 3. The a backup right was a new mold as I bought it to fit a slot, the plastic for the disc mold was just starting to be discontinued but not the mold.

Timed out:

The other was finding a replacement for a worn out flippy Z XL from 2005 in the Stalker in 2016, then a year later when the pre flight number Stalkers were being sold off for a new run with flight numbers people myself included thought the mold was going oop and bought a bunch of the old disc stamp. This was though true since Discraft dropped a bunch of molds not just for a replacement or having a very similar mold being made as well, discs like the XL and the Hornet a few years earlier.

Couldn't vote - my reason wasn't listed.

Just got a basket and needed 8 $5 putters. And a replacement T'Bird, and a 'Vette...
5 mini's rounded it out to get free shipping.
