Cool! Now Discraft just needs to make the ESP Putt'r to fix the poor plastic choice of Soft X for the Putt'r, the only plastic the disc comes in so players can have a better plastic for that lid. That or stop making the Putt'r, very few players use the mold due to how the Soft X gets a mini concave after a short period, mine was 25-35 putts, and mold is like a 0.5 in glide. Basically a slight broken in Putt'r only works for those who use the from the chest spin putt where all the distance is made by spin only as if using a catch disc and very little power or a very hard slamming the pole push only putt, why you see Scott Stokely using the Soft X Putt'r in his 2019 putting videos. Even the Aerobie Arrow has more glide then a worn in Soft X Putt'r.

If the mold were to be fixed by having a better plastic, then the Putt'r would be used as a longer putter for me as the more neutral to slight US approach disc. and possibly replace the Magnet as my putter all together. I used a Putt'r for 1.5 season to have found out the plastic makes a Putt'r garbage. As to why I did not use a Pole cat, the edge is not comfortable in my hand due to top and edge meeting corner.

Foot faults. Brodie will have a lot of foot faults because he's never had to worry about hitting a mark with his plant foot before.

That won't matter though since they're never called.

I’m sure he knows he just needs some time to get used to that, marking discs, timing out and step counting if he plans to x step after a drive. I don’t think foot faults will be a problem for him whether they are called or not.

Can definitely see him breaking 500 ft. BH and going 400+ with ease on FH.

The guy had the absolute smoothest FH with an Ultimate Frisbee that went a mile.
Brodie did the same thing in ball golf, worked with top instructor and played with Jon Rahm, Sergio Garcia, and Greg Norman.

Not sure how much he will be throwing FH:

I would say probably 70-30 backhand to forehand. Probably won’t break it out unless the shot really asks for it. He has a wicked overhand too though.

But Inside the circle jump puts are called. Those Under 10 meter jump putts are something people notice.
