I saw mash go over the skatepark and land pin high on hole 18 and clear the trees going over the brush/swamp/chitty weeds on hole 14 for a long putt at Indian Oaks in Marengo. Those things are pretty ridiculous.

I don't have a speed 13 in my bag, but I love to throw the 150g blizzard boss in the field. Next month I am playing in a tournament that will have a long drive contest on an open 600' hole that I will likely throw the boss on. Thursday evening I threw it 485' on a line that was never higher than about 6'. I hope I can dial it in and get some monster throws with it.

Suit yourself. Everyone else will be content leaving you in the dust I'm sure.

The wraith is a PERFECT tailwind disc. (IMHO) Still was understable enough that it would turn a little bit in a tail wind and would glide forever! Completely effortless to throw!

Today I had a chance to throw my 156 Boss with a decent tailwind. I really got a good rip on it, high and turning pretty hard. It did a full helix and hit the middle of the road 100' past the 390' basket I was aiming at. For reference, I don't ever throw that far. Lately I haven't been concentrating on distance at all and on the course I've only been eeking out a little over 400' with my 175 Sword. JohnE McCray had just been showing off and throwing into the road and then I just stepped up and matched him with my lightweight bubble disc. That was about my 10th time throwing that disc and I don't know how repeatable that will be, but when a disc is adding 50' or so to my normal D drives it tends to get my attention.
