Thanks for the video. Not to hijack, sorry 3putt but I always though a thumb roller was thumber thrown at the ground not a forehand roller with a thumber grip?! Is there a different name for that?

Got me. I've never tried to throw a thumber into the ground; no idea what that shot would do.

I don't throw thumbers, but don't they barrel-roll in the air? I'm sure you could roll with it; It just seems like it would be inconsistent. It doesn't seem like a good shot for a roller candidate to me, but I've been wrong before. Hell, I'm been wrong three or four times already this morning.

That's what I thought a thumber roller was until you posted the video. I tried it a few times and couldn't do anything with it and moved on.

Thumb rollers thrown like you would a OH thumber are too hard to get to land right. You would almost have to throw with an angle that would put your arm through your head. The few times I was dumb and or desperate enough to try them they usually landed at such a steep angle they landed on the flight plate.

The blow-bys got to me and I bit the bullet and got used to the deeper putters. If I was just starting out, a disc like the Colt would be really tempting. I've been throwing Aviars and Wizards for so long that I don't really see the need to switch up the putter routine right now.

That is pretty much what I assume it would do, but I've never actually tried it.

O definitely, I was talking about throwing them more since it seems XD's went in and out of your bag over the years as throwers I assume? Just FYI if you wanted a more modern take on the old school shallow putters for throwing.

Weird bag setup right now. I've developed a strange love of driving light DX Firebirds so I have one of those in the bag. The Vibram drivers for some reason are what the really fast discs are supposed to be: easy distance. They go farther than any drivers I've tried. The unLace is super-duper long but really unpredictable. The Lace is not quite as long but not as flippy so they pair up pretty well. The Cyclone is still the go-to for shorter control drives. The Champ Firebird and Champ Banshee are too similar; one has to go. Just trying to figure out which one. The Pro Destroyer has a good bit of dependable fade and I don't really care about it so it boldly goes on hyzer lines where losing the disc is a strong possibility. All this goofing off is taking throws away from the Valk, which has been the go-to driver for awhile. I'm not ready to take them out right this moment.

Winter golf is always Comet time for me. I'll work a little more on trying to clean up my form since there isn't much in the way of competition going on. One of the Z Comets is giving me fits with the turn 'n burns so I have a lot of work to do.

When the Sole came out I wanted to try them, but I was too cheap to buy them. I got a couple on the cheap (thanks, BroD!) and put them in the bag a few months ago. I don't hate them, so they are still there. I don't love them, so I'm not sure if they will stay. It's a good putter, so maybe. I'm keeping a Ridge in there for windy days. It's not so much that it's overstable as it is that it has no lift so a headwind doesn't blow it up as much as the Sole. When it warms up the Scale is going back in that slot.

Right now I own eight Vibram discs and all of them are in my bag or my daughter's bag. I know it's just me but I'm cheap! If I'm going to spend that kind of $$$ on a Frisbee it's going to get thrown!
