Long story short I placed an order for two.

I fell for it too.....lmao. Picked up 2 and have 2 more coming as well 🤷🏼*♂️. I’m very comfortable with my Chally OS but I’m always tinkering and trying to find a better mouse trap lol.

My wife claims to have heard Paul say the Luna was named after his grandmother. Have any of you heard this as well?

I have watched most of Pauls rounds the last years, the ones beeing filmed that is.

When he was with Innova, he was known for throwning his NOVA on laser straight lines on his approches. . and he did that alot

Now with Discraft he mostly throws the ZONE for approches. . i basicly never see him throw the direct floty straight shot anymore.

Well you can say that Innova dont have a ZONE or Discraft dont have a NOVA. . and sure that is tru, but they do have discs that flies similar.

But for me i seams like Paul completly changed his short approch game after the switch. . .no more smooth straight shots. . but more hyzer shots with a OS disc

What did Paul throw off the tee on Hole 1 of the final round at GBO? It had a cool-looking blue tie-dye pattern. With a massive tailwind, I'm assuming it was a flippy fairway, maybe a Heat or something? Hadn't seen that disc before, and I don't think it came out for any other shots that round.

It's a force. He has a pink and a blue one. I didn't really like the look of it though honestly. Looked like a copy of the DD Burst plastic. Although, I guess Discraft started that style back in the day with their Swirled APX.

Yeah I was interested to see how much he'd lean on the Zone for FH approaches and short hyzers...but have been very surprised how much he uses it all the time. He does have the power/spin/control though to hold it straight even on shorter shots, while taking advantage of its low glide and stability. Still very surprised at the complete shot selection change. He's obviously throwing it well and trusting it.

At GBO though it was so windy that I bet a Nova wouldn't even need to be in the bag if he had it.
