McBeths record for this year vs last year May prove that it's the archer or it may prove that arrow.........or maybe it proves that $1,000,000 is a great motivator

They both are good comparables, though (IMHO) in opposite directions.

Paul's 2019 is different than Paul's 2018 for many reasons. It's not the arrow.

He also played other tournaments in both years than those I listed and like I said, played under his rating most of the spring and early summer in 2018. The second half of last year he was a lot better. I just chose 2018 because it had the most common events and courses. I also thought about using his big year of 2015 but I was already half asleep when I finished the first 2 sets of numbers.

Just saying it seems a good archer needs good arrows...

He'd have better luck with the big mac bun.

How so? They feel identical to older esp and flx zones, and flight is basically the same too.

I doubt discraft "tweaked" the force, undertaker, buzzz, or zone - and it's silly to think they would mess with their 4 best molds anyway.

I agree, at least that would verify that if that is the case, it is silly to call them first runs...

Could have just been a cooling thing, but the rim felt sloped differently.

Innova tweaked molds for the Tour Series discs but retained the traditional molds also.
