Love me a good Birdie, Polecat if the thumbtrak isn't comfortable for you. I don't think I'd be as comfortable and confident (let alone wouldn't be playing disc golf) if I hadn't reached for one of those my first two years of playing.


On a side note, anybody find these Sharks in stores yet? I remember when the 30yr Roc was released it seemed like you couldn't pick up a disc at a store without it being a 30yr Roc. Went to two places this week and couldn't find a single one yet.

I was hoping if they were sending some out to the smaller stores yet, the PiAS size stores. I've had a few of their managers tell me they're usually the last to get new releases after MSt, Infinite, and other bigger retailers who sell online too.

The shark was my favorite mold until I started toying with Discraft discs. It's such a comfortable and reliable disc. Was also my first disc!

Can’t lose with either if it jives with your hand. I love the thumb track but that’s just me. Both are awesome discs!

Innova generally ships in the order that orders are placed. I'm a tiny shop and regularly receive my orders before the big guys.

I do not like either, the Birdie is too tall for my smaller hands not to mention the thumbtrack and the Pole Cat is too sharp on the part where the Top meets side. This why I attempted to use the Soft X Putt'r when I was thinking a Lid might work for me but the plastic is the flaw with that putter, they need to bring back the Pro D like was used for only the first run of the disc as along with the Soft X from that same run. The Pole Cat is what I would use to teach if they have never used a Disc Golf disc since it is similar to some of the cheep toy discs.

If they did Ultimate and are wanting to learn disc golf ether a Rattler, smaller Disc Golf sized non ring grooved Ultrastar or a Zephyr would then be asked for them to get for a putter maybe even an XT Nova, if they do not want to actually use an Ultrastar or other brand of Ultimate Disc they have for the first time.

No need to go any further. Rattler FTW. Funny, I don't bag it anymore ever since going back to challengers, but that one disc taught me more about putting than any other mold. Incidentally, ultimate players throw sick approaches with the rattler.

I miss the Aviar/shark/cheetah/gazelle days.

Maybe I should make a nostalgia bag...
