I drive an SUV, so I have to take the top pole out, but the rest just fits in back...
My feet are my problem. I think I'm starting to develop arthritis in my toe joints, so standing/walking a lot can cause pain. So, the seat is nice.


Oh, I see now. The Stalker would range in there. I carry a Sentinel with Comets mostly to have something I can snap off lower and harder than a Comet; I've never really figured out how to get a Comet to work for me on anything other than a high line. I haven't thrown a Stalker but I'd have to guess it's a better disc for a low-line shot. I'm a huge Comet hypocrite since I claim it's a "carry one midrange" kind of disc, but then I always pair it with something because I can't get it to do everything. I think it's mostly user error, though.
My Stalker works like your Sentinel. To me, it is right in between the Comet and TeeBirds (I also throw). I have found the same thing, the Comet likes to have some air under it. I really love it for powerful, low line, hyzer flips, to flat. I'll generally use the Comet as an approach disc on that line.

Lost the Nova in the lake, bought another to confine the experiment. But haven't really thrown it. Still kinda fun to throw around though....

I swear if I played that course all the time I'd have to take out a loan to replace all the discs I'd lose.

Haha, Logan University in Chesterfield.
Every Thursday after league my wife asks, "how many discs did you loose?" Not did you, how many...

Lake Holes: Temporarily lost - we have people that rake the lakes on 5, 6, 13, 15, & 16 so they usually come back
Creek holes: Temporarily lost after a big rain, but usually recoverable on holes 7, 8, 14, & 17

The Nova was a strange thing, I was pitching out of the woods (because I flubbed my drive) and hit an electrical box, it caught edge and rolled ~100' down a hill into the lake, never to be seen again (until someone finds it).

Phil ends up out here from time to time so he's on my facebook; I get to see the huge piles of plastic you guys are pulling out of those ponds.

I got back there for the first time since it was redesigned two weekends ago; only had time for nine. Had a rollaway on five sit down right next to the pond, tried to throw my drive on six into the pond but just barely made it over so I could turn over my second shot and lose sight of it (no telling where it is,) then I hit the cage on 9 and had a rollaway that sat down 3' short of the road. It was a fun time. I'm going to have to get over there and play the back nine soon, I'm sure I'll be able to lose more than one disc back there.

Phil is a good dude, but he's been working out of town lately...

Let me know when you make it back this way & I'll show you all the good places to loose discs!

How does the cold impact the flight of the discs? I live over in Columbia so our weather is pretty similar to yours. I haven't played much cold weather DG

This is my opinion and in no way able to be backed up with empirical evidence.
Personal results may vary...

During this time of year, we tend to encounter windy conditions more regularly, which impacts flight. The colder my hands are, the harder it is to get a good grip and subsequent snap, so that also impacts flight characteristics. Lastly, the lower the temp, the stiffer the plastic and the more "stable" it flies (for me).
