A2 is becoming my favorite disc. I throw it a lot on FH flex approaches. Something I can do with this type of disc I couldn't do with others is what I call a whirly bird. Basically fh it almost straight vertical over the top of obstacles, really high, and letting it helicopter down. Way more comfy than a get out of jail thumber.

Philo uses a Champion Roc of some kind for the described shot, not a fresh KC/Dx
I thouht Barsby used a Champion Rhyno either clear or blue and another pro used Clear or blue Champion Rhyno. Not DX

Well I was going off the Pro site for Innova with Philo so it was old info as they need to update the site, Spider is not made currently, Shark 3 Still being made, SO the Site had it saying he used a KC Pro ROC for putting approach. all I know is he uses some form of ROC/3 for approach that is not that soft or a putter for OS shots so it bounces for his approach.

Thanks for fixing my stupid mistakes.

The "Zone throw" is the biggest change in Pauls game after the move. . .
Yeah, McBeth's even got ODRB throwing a Zone now. Rumor is that he'll soon be switching out his 8 rocks for a single 5x Buzzz and even putting a Luna in his bag for a thrower. Hell, he can probably just use a nutsack now that he's cleared out all those rocks. 😬

sexton bags and often flicks the morter.

lol.... i didnt notice i quoted someone from 2018

Now quite possibly the Caiman based off the 1.5-2 runs of Morter with the micro mini bead as his disc, he liked the micro bead for some reason.

I'm like 99% RHBH. I occasionally flick if I have to. The Entropy holds a permenant spot in my bag. 250' and in, I can rip that disc HARD and it will go dead straight til the last minute when it fades. To me that flat hard straight shot with late fade is vital to the game. In the woods, it's a get out of jail free disc - flex lines, hard hyzers, etc. Saved my butt from many bad situations.
