I have found in several cases examples of Elasto/Fluid/Frost versions of discs being noticeably more stable than VIP/Lucid/Opto counterparts. I wonder if it comes down more to the plastic itself than any retooling between event and general sales. Sadly, no more Fluid. Will need to rethink a couple of molds I count on Fluid for.

Thanks for the thoughts on Pine, btw - looking forward to this disc.

It's a Scots Pine.

The pine is still holding the stable/os spot in my bag. I should probably get a fresh verdict for headwind duties when the wind is really screaming. But it holds up great in a moderate wind.

I really hope they can reproduce this mold for regular production, if not I guess it’s back to the roc3, nothing wrong with the roc3 but this is a great disc.

Since the TC version was done in Lucid, I think the chances are good the production will be the same. I was worried about it because I really like it so I bought 3 TC versions just in case...

I'm not gonna lie, it's just as easy to mistake it for a stalk of broccoli.

In Finnish, Broccoli is called Parsakaali. You could go ahead and call it the Parsakaali and it sounds cool. "Shed those extra strokes with a steady diet of Parsakaali and increase the health of your mid game."

A whole line of vegetable themed discs could emerge actually. Let your mind contemplate this and figure out what kind of vegetable would suit each kind of disc, kind of fun actually.
