I love the Starfire in headwinds or situations where your shot absolutely can't bleed right.
I was looking at the Starfire too, and want to grab a Pro Starfire (SL). My arm seems to be happiest in this speed range.

I'm stopping by PIAS on the way home today. It was pretty windy during my lunch round, so I'll see if they have some decent Orcs and a Starfire.

Thanks for the heads up.

I only tried a couple, and like I said they are average Orcs. Just like the previous runs of Orcs and everything else Innova makes (and other companies as well), you are going to find variation even within runs.

If you have a chance to in person, put multiple orcs down on a flat surface and compare the parting line heights.

Sometimes even a fool gets lucky. Same color (my favorite), same weight, and 25% off. Wish they had more than one.

I picked up a couple 165g pink ones toward the end of last fall. They're a tick more HSS than my pair of 165 PFN Champs I also got from Infinite.

Some red and yellow still available.

I play 3-5 rounds a week but haven't practiced putting or throwing since I started carrying a small bag the first week of November (except for one hour long session while giving an impromptu private lesson). That said, yesterday I took in order of stability my 6/10 champ shryke, now seasoned 6/10 175 domey champ orc about the same stability 5/10 proto D1, big gap to 6/10 Outlaw, and finally 7/10 Ricky destroyer (425' max) for some field work. For reference, my best throws were 470ish with the D1 and throwing 180 degrees back to where I started my best throws against the wind were around 430'.

In Orc Love personals, I bombed my domey champ Orc 470' yesterday equaling my best throws of the day. Caught an airbounce about 325+ and held that turn. I have a domey swirly star 175 that was major overstable like my Champ Orc used to be. Now that my form has gotten more consistent, it might be time to give that star Orc another look at the slot my champ Thunderbird has claimed. With Orcs I MIGHT get similar results with for over 350'+ shots but with less effort. Time will tell but I'm guessing my long pull days are numbered.

tl;dr Orcs go farr

My relatively new Star Orc recently took the spot of my stable (not overstable) Thundy. It's a great flier and my pals on the course get weirded out every time I park a hole with it.

maybe they added some more because there are a LOT of great looking pink, blue, and orange ones on there now! I grabbed a couple pink and a blue one a couple weeks ago and am having a hard time not ordering more....
