Going out to rock the Spin today.. Disc is at my place I'm tempted to play in my jammies... I am playing my Halloween glow bag to get practice in but I can't afford to leave the Spin my 174 glow Comet is still pretty straight after a few years of wear.. I just can't cut the tight corners on an anny without the Spin. I got a glow Anode but it just flies straight needs more height to turn.. Going to miss the Tangent and the Switch..

Spin, glow Envy, Stalker and Comet.

Makes me think of Discspeed's Comet and Tangent analogy from 2013:

The Comet is like a classic sports car. Lacking technology, older sports cars needed to be well balanced and require skill to drive. To a driver with the skill to handle the car a more pure driving experience could not be found. A driver with less skill will never be able to control the car well enough to push it's limits, so the classic car's merits may be lost on them. It is also a car to be driven on a sunny afternoon and not for an everyday commute.

The Tangent is more like a modern roadster. It still is a very true and responsive ride, but it has technology that lessens the skill requirement for the user. Computer mechanisms keep the tires in contact with the pavement across varying user inputs and conditions. It can be used as an everyday ride. While a skilled driver will still enjoy driving this car, it won't be as pure of an experience as the classic car.

Damn that's a heck of a memory to be able to drag that up... totally true. My favourite discs mask my imperfections.

I feel like I should clarify after Spin problems I lit it up with the Comet missed a couple aces by a just an inch.. Ended up in a three way CTP playoff for second and third the playoff hole at my place is about 200' a 45 degree drop (about 50').. There's a huge advantage to having a Buzzz or Tangent in the bag for that hole, wind was blowing luckily my partner got us third but I usually own that hole aaargh.

....And good trolling. Damn I used to laugh more on here..

Maybe if we try tonight to contact the ghost of Frank D he will haunt these forums again. I heard he went mad trying to throw a Comet into the sun..

The Spin is so awesome I burnt all my Aviars (they are useless)

Funguy posted this in the MVP thread...

Spin -- Although it does not share the same core as the Ion/Anode, it is similar in feel. It is a deep dish putter that has a unique US wing profile. If you like US putters, this might be your choice. It is very glidey. I have not thrown another putter that is the same as the Spin. Great for outside of the circle shots or jump putts. I have not had great success with this off the tee. It has great turn if you can dial it in just right. It has a similar beginning flight as a Comet but it doesn't have any LSS. Great for hyzerflip putts or hyzerflips off the tee.

Live thread damn you LIVE!

So I got my hands on a fresh 166 electron spin.. Decent gap in stability from my 166 worn proton way less stable out of the box.. Nice. It holds a flat to anny wrong turn really well.. It doesn't break out like the proton. I could draw parallels between an X and Z Comet all day. I'm even more firm in my theory.

I'll contribute to your thread....

Since I couldn't sell it in my fsot thread, I'm taking my Spin to a local shop today for trade. I didn't really care for it but I'll be using the proceeds to help pay to replace the N Inertia that I stuck in some highwires yesterday. I loved that Inertia.
