For now, since I haven't really got many of the new molds at all, I'm bagging the Acc XXX. I messed with a few molds last night and it was so much more reliable for dropping into the island on Kaho 8 that I figured for now I could afford to bag it just for that hole. It seems to go just the perfect distance, and its dump finish means it really never heads for the drink.

Same here with the Explorer. I guess the point is just to have something with enough fade to end right (along the island's length) instead of finishing straight into the water.

I'd give the Saint Pro a try but don't thing I've seen a decent one yet. I'm on the lookout for an Acc/Wind Saint Pro or Acc/Wind Pioneer.

A lot on Coyote (haven’t played that course in a bit so I can’t remember exactly which holes - second shot on two for sure)
Do you play to the bend on Coyote 2? I just go over the top, and then try to run it through the back of the cave going for the 2 with a Musket or a River. Can't remember the last time I missed the over the top strategy.

With the over the top, I seem to only be successful 20-30% of the time. Light/Skip Ballista Pro on backhand anhyzer, starting my shot with a lean to the right firing over the tallest rock. What is your way?

I've attached 3 images. This is with the Light/Glide Ballista. RHBH.
1. The aim point for the reticle.
2. Where I reach back to.
3. The outcome when I released the shot I set up in the first two screenshots.

It always literally skips off the top middle or top far side of the rock wall.

I went and tried that line a few dozen times, and I’m still shorting it into the nook or bouncing off OB left at least 50%. Gotta have that extra glide. Unlike reality, the disc makes a huge difference when attacking certain spots in this game.

Ah yeah, definitely agree there. I haven't really tried it with my other stuff. That L/EG is probably needed to pull it off for sure. I will say that learning that line I definitely got pretty good at throwing the roller out of the upper nook down to the cave mouth lol. It's such a small defined space that you can reliably aim high into the air to the same spot with a disc for the roller and put it down to the same spot.

I sort of go over the top (I think)
From like 250-270 out though, the Havoc flight path is perfect for running it - there’s little risk because of the wall in back of the hole

I just started playing Kaho Backwoods on beta. It's pretty easy to hit three stars, but there's some interesting eagle lines that'll be fun to see play out on Daily Opens.

Ever since the newest update, tournament rounds dont log on the rating. What's up with that?
