Keep in mind, Soft Wizards are not soft!

Only in the 20s today, but I found a course that is mostly grass so I couldn't resist.

And the Nikko Wizards are like the old ones I am more familar with. The Soft if disc is just like Modern Pro D in terms of soft I will be okay, I do not need that soft of discs for further out putting from 25-35 feet. Further then 35 feet and I am using my approach disc or that Ion for longer putting with an approach disc.

55 degrees today! More wind than I am accustomed to playing in, but I just couldn't bring myself to leave the course. Gave the overstable discs a workout. I played 45 holes.

I've been on spring break since Friday. It has continued to be unseasonably warm. It was in the 60s over the weekend, I played 100 holes. I brought the 167 Champ Sidewinder out and I'm glad I did. Its nice to have a Sidewinder with a bit more stability.

100 holes? Do you have an arm left? Any vertebrae in your lower spine? Just kidding.

I finally got to play today, for the first time in weeks, and at the end of the day my back was letting me know about it. Enjoy your youth; the aches and pains only grow from here...

Woah soft wizards were discontinued? I have a small stack of them thankfully. I think I need to go back to using the wizards, I never knew why I went away from them. Probably because every time I went to a store that had them, super softs felt completely different. Even with my softs I have some that are actually soft, and some that are hard as bricks.

Why'd you switch out the KC Pro Roc for a buzz to pair with the comet?

I'm 38 and I don't throw as hard as some. Luckily, I have avoided any arm or shoulder pain so far. My feet have a lot of miles on them though. I'm hoping playing a lot of holes is good conditioning.

I know, its so sad. I wish they would even do a small batch of Soft Wizards.

I have been trialing the Buzzz. Next time I go out I'll probably be throwing the Comet/KC Pro combo.

Another 57 holes today and more fantastic weather.

167 4x Star Destroyer

175 2018 Sexton Firebird
167 12x Champ Firebird
172 4x Champ Thunderbird
167 Champ Sidewinder
168 HF Star Roadrunner
167 GStar Sidewinder
170 AJ Star TeeBird

177 Z Glo Buzzz
179 2019 MJ Comet

175 BT Hard Harp
171 Soft Ion
175 Soft Wizard
172 Soft Wizard
175 Nikko Wizards (2)

So I brought the Rocs out for the first couple holes. I just don't have confidence in that KC anymore. It might hold a stronger fade than the Comet is capable of, but it definitely has less HSS at this point in its life. I feel much more confident with the Comet. The Buzzz for me overlaps more with the Roc3s. I'm sick of trying to find good Roc3s and not having any luck. I've been throwing this Buzzz since 2018. I like it better than any of the Roc3s I've tried to replace the one I lost. My stack of Rocs isn't going anywhere, I'm sure I'll revisit them again in the future.
