That could have been a good addition to the "test".
I've done this test. When Discraft discontinued the Eclipse, I went looking for a replacement. Threw an Eclipse and FD off the tee one after another for many rounds. (Did so with some other models, too.)

The Eclipse carried farther due to better glide.

Which plastic was the FD in? I love my FDs, and recently picked one up in P Line... significantly more glide than any C, S or D line Ive thrown fwiw.

S Line, IIRC.

The Eclipse was base line plastic.

After seeing Simons latest "5 HOLE CHALLENGE!! (McMahon/Heimburg/Lizotte)" it starts to sink in how INSANE Coltens drive on 15 was. . to outdrive those guys with a 10-speed disc is one of the best drives i have seen

New Hampshire's best? This site has 4 courses rated higher, so is it NH's best? It's one of the few states I haven't played in.

I'll have to watch this. I'd like to see the course, and what Simon says.

Salmon Falls is an excellent NH course and both ask an and I have played it. TOTH is about an hour and 29 minutes from my BIL's house. Might be worth checking out.

Otter Brook in Keene is absolutely amazing woods golf. Built and maintained by a huge group of volunteers in a state park, its a real gem with gorgeous tees, beautiful fairways and a large player following. That course looked nice but OB is one of my absolute favorites and it is a soul crusher I would pick every time over that course.

Supply chains are in shambles around the globe and honestly this fallout is going to be insane over the next few months. We havent even felt the first ripples of this yet realistically, were just hearing about them. Wait until the major metro areas get hit, medical services bottleneck and people start to actually panic!

Every industry is about to take a massive hit either directly or indirectly. I truly hope in a few months were still complaining about inconveniences.

Jay Peak and Burke were among the first to shutter ops. Receivership made the decision

easier and the cross border traffic etc. Let me know how it goes at Magic. Thanks.
