That sucks man.. I've been in and out of injuries and knee surgery for the last 5 years it's tough losing distance and the ability to play as many holes as I want to. I still love it though, I had a harmless lump chopped out of my neck a week ago, I can't and shouldn't really throw, I'm not supposed to be working or lifting haha...

.... so I'm out playing yesterday and I figured if I'm not moving my body I won't tear my stitches. Played the bottom easy nine with the Whitler (a lid) took a lotta threes and couple fours. Normally I'd be 5 under or better. I might have made par, I didn't really count or care.

When I had knee surgery I learned how to play righty to keep the weight off my point leg, I sucked but hey its still disc.

On an MVP note I did real good with the 165 electron Spin today.

Got my clash and threw it a bit today. Feels great in a forehand grip. Only threw it a couple times backhand today and it seems more beefy than I was expecting. Wasn’t showing any turn for me and not as glidey as my eagle x. Had more of a dump than a forward penetrating fade. It might overlap quite a bit with my thunderbirds. I’ll have to do some more testing and definitely try forehanding it as well. Maybe I’ll try out a crave. Haha. I used to use my relay for most fairway shots but it’s getting a bit floppy now.

Going lefty isn't too bad.

Have you seen a specialist? I had a shoulder injury for about a year and was doing excersizes my friend suggested since he had had shoulder issues in the past. They didn't help at all and I could barely get through a round. And this was my non-throwing shoulder.

I finally went to a specialist who figured out which muscles were damaged and gave me different PT to actually address my issue. I did them religiously for a few months and now I can throw like normal again. Still do the PT often just to keep myself from another injury too.

Also, for whoever was asking about the Prizm Insanities, Idk about weighting agents, but I do know every profile Pic I saw of them they had a much lower PLH than regular production Insanities, with a fair bit more dome too.

I just tore my rotator cuff in my right (throwing) shoulder. I’m a hockey goalie and had an accidental collision with a forward.
I’m already trying to learn to throw left handed, but it’s counterintuitive at this point.

On an MVP note, I LOVE LOVE LOVE my Volt and Tesla.
