i have a zippertop red olf somewhere those discs ruled too except finding different runs didnt rule so i stopped throwing innova/discmania/mill altogether
So skip on the PD? If you read through PD thread or any of the favorite disc from each manufacturer threads, it did seem like JC Risen type praise ... maybe people just say PD because that's what they know of Discmania…. Almost picked one up a couple weeks ago because of all the DGCR comments.

I knew it was a fast "putter"-ish but its described as being like a Harp or Zone. Two discs that get the same thought they are not really putters or too long to be a putter.

The Rat is like a seasoned Envy. Which should be a great disc, but I can't find a place for it, and that it is so far away from what is advertised.

i liked the pd i just like the volt moar

like all great things with innova/dm it varies on the run

pd is great so is the fd

i havent thrown pd since the "freak" stamp so i have no clue how the current ones mold up or any of the new runs variance in stability

I'm mostly just teasing. Countless players swear by them. Get off my lawn

Probably gonna get ripped for this but the DD Getaway and I did not get along. I had a Biofuzion and a Fuzion that were meathooks! I don't consider myself a weak arm by no means, but the 2 I had wanted to find the ground fast! For now I'll stick to my Saint Pro.

so even the bio was a meathook, huh? I was thinking of checking these out to replace the culverin as a more-stable escape. It seemed that even with my weak arm, Culverins could get away from me with any wind around. Probably a true slightly more stable escape, glide and all, but I might rather go a click higher.

Bio Getaway 170s
Moonshine Escape 170s
Fuz Escape 170s
Opto Hatchet 168ish

That could be a thing during the cold season, or beginning of next season, to get my feet back under me before the distance drivers come out.

I gave the disc a fair chance, it was in my bag for most of the season. Even after some ware the Getaway was just not for me. We got along good on a FH basis, but my Wraiths and Firebirds had those shots covered.

I'm playing tomorrow, and I'll be throwing a Getaway (fuzion) for the first time. I'll post a synopsis of the disc afterward. Just looking at the thing it seems Thunderbird-ish.

I would definitely say Thunderbird-ish. Hopefully your experience is better than mine.

Me 2. I wanted a Discraft equivalent to my Wizard. It was a dumb idea. There is no equivalent to a Wizards.
