So PP is shutting down her website and Discraft is shutting down?
Any other time we would all be freaking out about a disc manufacturer shutting down operations but these are weird times so we just shake our heads and say we understand.

Wonder what PP next Rating update will end up? She have made quite a few +1000 rated rounds in 2020
But the two bad rounds at WACO might drag her rating down?

Fun to see a Surge SS in her bag. .

Looks like she mostly throws . . ZEUS, SURGE SS, BUZZZ, BANGER GT and Fierce ( CryZtal and Proto )
She throws the Undertaker sometimes but not that often. . .and the ESP Raptor

She threw a Surge SS back in the day when she was on team Discraft so familiarity is already there. She pretty much threw the same 5 discs the whole tournament at the Preserve, and really the same Zeus/Surge SS off the tee on at least half of the holes.

Surges are sweet, they are basically a wraith, so a Surge SS is a beat up wraith, great choice for a control distance driver.

I have a Surge SS Dye and mine is just as stable as my Wraiths. . . so one of the few Discraft drivers i have never tested is the normal Surge. . i figured that i did not want a more OS Surge SS.
The Surge SS is quite stable for me. . .not that far of my least stable Zeus

I always thought the Surge flew like a slightly mellower Wraith. The kind of disc you can turn over if you really put your mind to it. Surges are neutral and will hold pretty much whatever line you put them on.

I'm sure Paige will keep the Surge SS in the bag. She threw that disc well, and was routinely outdriving the other women on the card by a lot with it.

I wonder if she's dabbled with the Crank at all.....

She was talking about the guys at the Discraft factory pushing the Banger GT in her 'bag building' series, but said that she expected there would be no way she'd opt for it over the Zone.

Wonder what caused the change in thinking there.

Paige is one of the few player that throws a straight line to the target on approches or short drives.
Most players throws a OS disc like the Zone on those shots. . Paige just throws her CryZtal Fierce or Banger GT straight at the target. . .to me thats a much harde shot, but it works for Paige

The straight shot is harder to range for me, but easier to execute vs my FH approach shots with a Zone. All I know is that my approach game is the strongest part if my game right now, besides scrambling.
