I bag a Relay, Crave and two Resistors. Relay is an FR and fairly broken in. Not super flippy but handles pretty much all of my US duties from 200-300. The Crave is an FR and pretty much dead straight nowadays. Rounding out the first run goodness is a beat to hell FR Resistor is basically what a new Crave would be but with little to no glide and a newer sparkle proton Resistor for utility and FHs. All three of FR discs get used a lot, the beefy resistor would get more use if I could throw more FHs but my bum shoulder doesn't allow for more than a couple in a round.

I think a lot of people in today's game prefer faster mids than the slower fairways. I prefer to work a fairway.

Same here. I carry a lot of fairways but I've been working in more mids this year. I used to only bag 2 mids, now I'm up to 4. This has just cut into my high speed drivers though, can't seem to part with my fairways.

So they can sit on shelves? I don't think most newer golfers cycle mids. The current limited premium Wasps don't sell very well.

The Wasp coming out in JB every now and then almost fills the demand. Most importantly, it doesn't step on the toes of the Malta.

Paul said the production run Malta are not as OS, have you tried one? Thoughts?

X Wasps are awesome. Bag one for my winter bag and have 3 sitting around in case I lose one. Lucky enough to pick them up many years ago at 12 or so bucks each. They are a lot more OS out of the box compared to the JB. My X wasp has survived at least 6 winters now without breaking, something none of my pro rocs could do, they are summer discs now.

Please don't miss my point. It wasn't that no one throws these discs. It was that these discs are less commonly thrown, and therefore Discraft doesn't see a need to make the model. I'm aware there are people throwing these discs. Otherwise they wouldn't be listed on the flight chart.

yeah, i've been playing there 12 years. i know the routes


reasonable statements:
"i don't like the course"
"i don't like the new layout"
"i don't like the new holes"
"the new holes are not that difficult for me"


ridiculous statements:

i'm supposed to take it seriously when you say that 3 of the most wooded holes on the course are just as easy as some of the easiest holes on the old layout? hole 8 was by far the easiest on the course. 11 and 12 were basic as long as you didn't have a tree directly in front of your putt. 9 was the toughest of the RIP holes and new 12 is comparable but the gap is way further down the fairway, the fairway is way more narrow, and the road is on the tougher side (for BH).


so y'know what? i'd love to see you throw some easy birdies this Saturday. you let me know what time and i'll bring my camera.
