Pretty sure the Drone went OOP in every plastic BUT Pro-D. You can still cycle.

I've tried working a 175g ESP Buzzz. Maybe I'll look into the Buzzz OS as well to fill in for my pro-d drones. I did like the Buzzz but I was never able to forehand it well (almost a deal breaker by itself) and for my style it just couldn't compete with my beat in Drones or my Z Comet. It is great in the wind, though, for the same reasons you mentioned. I'll work on smoothness as well...maybe I can get the perk you're enjoying and worry less about disc selection.

Sadly no. I've been building a stockpile though whenever I find them in Pro-D. They stopped using Pro-D on a lot of discs and don't even make many of their new discs in it at all. Wish discraft had a KC Pro equivalent...KC Pro Drones and Comets would make me so happy.

MJ - Congrats on your win in Zebulon last weekend!

Curious of your thoughts on Zebby,
favorite hole,
least favorite hole?

sadly, I have lost my TP Comet (circa '97), and have little faith it will be returned. it's possible, but I just have that feeling...

That sucks. I imagine you are very skilled with it if you had it for 20 years. When I started using them I seemed to lose one once a month (noob+comet+wind=disaster). All had my name/number on them but never had one returned (or really any disc). I've contacted the owner of every marked disc I've ever found. Maybe you will get my built up disc return karma...I know there must be a lot of it somewhere just building up like a trust fund.

That is sad. My very first disc was a TP Comet, and I bagged it for 12 or 13 years. I even used to putt with it (yeah, I know), until I wised up. When I finally reached the point that I feared losing or cracking it, I hung it on my wall, and it's pretty cool to still have the very first disc I ever bought, 21 years later. I can relate to your pain, I hope you get it back.

Did feel persecuted or singled out by the Ledgestone baskets? Did you feel like your putt was unfairly treated?

What's the most difficult type of wooded course hole for you, or just an example of an actual hole that gives you more trouble than others.
