I'm the guy that beats plastic to where another player finds "gold" in the used rack. I like newer stuff to throw, so I throw a full range of molds. My beat overstable stuff is gold to the experienced player and my beat understable stuff is gold to the newbie. It's all good. Whatever works for you is the best way.

They judge all baseline on a 150gr starter pack leopard and a whole lot of hearsay. There is one guy I play with that has never even owned a baseline disc and his reason being? They break in too fast! WTF!

I have yet to find anything off the shelf that flies like a beat X-Comet or thrashed KC-Roc and once you have a few in the cycle, it takes very little to maintain. There is also that familiarity thing that occurs when you throw the same discs with the same rim configuration for a long time.

I currently have both a 3yr old DX Roc and an X-comet in the bag, still very usable and very controllable. Neither does weird things that an off the shelf understable disc can be prone to do. And yes, I have tried lots of premium plastic understable discs.

To each there own though, I just prefer baseline.
Spot on. Spot. On.

I’ll add to that Pro and Star cycles just fine for faster discs. A few used bin finds, a few Pro and Star drivers in your favorite molds, and some time finding molds that work for you across their wear cycle and it’s easy to get 5-7 molds to cover everything.

Play smart. Keep it simple. Make shots.

Always bought used star PIAS stuff as a noob. The new discs felt slick and you had no idea if worth a damn where obviously someone loved that beat in SOB. Clearance PIAS winter stuff star chsmp for like $4 ans stock up!

Prolly tosses destroyers into ponds and woods never to be found now worth $30+ lol

Has the weather been pretty nice where you're at, ODRB? You look tan in your profile pic.
