Been really focusing on form; reach back, footwork, and follow through. As such, I have been getting some good connections on my drives. As a result, I find the trespass, even freshys, have a tendency to flip.

I like them. But i may be reaching a point where I could use a little bit more stable (and maybe faster) distance driver.

Hmm...

Hit the same point early last season and swapped both Trespasses & Enforcers for Destroyers. I also carry Orcs (speed 10) for fairway distance. So Destroyers are my all out distance and utility type shots...

My current thinking is in this direction; change to a faster/more OS distance driver and add a true control driver.

Idk if I can do destroyer again after throwing Trespasses. Every time I hold/throw one they just feel so deep. Hand feel plays a big part in disc selection for me.

As such, a train of thought is:
- add Vultures for the control
- go Defender/(& Something still a little more manageable for not top tier arm speed: Kong? Outlaw? Raider?) for distance.

Yup, same basic philosophy. For my power and arm speed, I think a positive fade of 2 is where my sweet/control slot is, so I throw:
TeeBirds 7,5,0,2
Orcs: 10,4,-1,3
Destroyers: 12,5,-1,3

I carry 2-3 of each mold in different stabilities, which covers pretty much every shot over 325'

I like the vulture for your control/ fairway distance. I also tried this mold and found it to be very similar to my old Orcs. Since I've been collecting Orcs for the last decade I just stuck with that mold.

During my Trespass/Enforcer trials, I also tried a Defender. I found that the rim was too wide for my liking, which was fine because Speed 13 is probably too much disc for me...

Zones are great. Been using my Zone a bit more for most approaches lately. And it hasn’t disappointed.

Get one if you don’t have one.

Got to get the DIY cart out this passed weekend. Played Enger with a buddy who was visiting (with a few others). Played some doubles and did some gambling. Was a great time! Very windy, so made the ball golf DG course challenging. But, got to load up the cart with a bunch of discs! Granted I only threw 2/3 of them, maybe..

Trespass (4) - Lucid-X, Lucid, Fuzion x2
Enforcer (2) - Biofuzion x2
Undertaker (4) - FRZ x2, Z, ESP
Felon (2) - Lucid x2
Heat (2) - Z x2
Truth (4) - Lucid x4
Verdict (2) - Lucid x2
Zone (2) - ESP x2
Judge (4) - Lucid x2, Prime x2

Cart held up really well. Found out a few things I need to modify to made it a little more comfortable.

Playing in the St. Paul Classic this coming weekend. Hoping to get to the course Friday or early Saturday to check it out (never been). I believe it is a new 18 hole set up. I'll wheel the cart, if able. Otherwise Grip-B. Cheers!

Well, the tourney this passed weekend went very poorly. I couldn't shake the nervous/shaky feeling all day. Putting suffered. Drives were off.

The course was very well manicured/maintained, but it was very short and very scoreable and I played it blind. I did not capitalize. Shot two sub-900 rounds... Hope they don't effect my rating too bad.

Think I am going to just focus on tourneys closer to home on courses I am a little more familiar with.

Bag was mostly the same, but I bagged Envies instead of Tombs. Probably going back to Tombs. Not as OS. Idk.

/end sad story

It's finally nice out!

Another tourney coming on Saturday: Northern Lights Experience. Not many people signed up, atm... oh well. Fairly wooded course. Lots of elevation and it's supposed to be warm, so we are going with a C-Grip set up.

Couple notes: I can't get comfortable with the Tomb. It might be the plastic (the C-blend grip is odd, S-blend is too soft). So, gunna give Firm Envies a go for throwing putters. I am sticking with Trespass' for distance. Comfortable, I have a bunch that span stabilities, and fast enough. Anyway, Bag (and Mika)...



Judge - 2 Prime for putting. One is pretty beat, very straight. The other still has a fade.
Envy - E-Firm for approaches and putter drives. Its pretty glidey and straight.
Zone - ESP for approaches and putter drives. Its a zone. It is awesome.
Verdict - 2 Lucid. One is very straight with good fade, other is overstable.
Truth - 2 Lucid. One is very straight and true, other is beat and understable.
Felon - 1 Lucid Metal flake, fresh and overstable. Other is worn Lucid, and is straighter.
Undertaker - 1 FR Z, which has a good fade to it. Other is Z, very straight and reliable.
Heat - Z, for understable and hyzer flip stuff.
Enforcer - Bio, for overstable distance, wind fighting stuff.
Trespass - Lucid-X is overstable, Lucid is straight to fade, and Fuzions are straight and flippy.

Thanks!

She was wondering why we weren’t going to the course. She doesn’t understand that thunderstorms don’t make for the best discing.
