Picked up a chalk pit serpent and another backup star wraith.

That serpent though, wow what a beaut. Been crushing the practice basket with silly consistency since I touched it and I am loving the chalk pit plastic! RDG has now officially barnstormed all of my putter pockets!

I really like the Cro as a mid. If I threw Innova I'd go Cro over Shark3. Grip is great, and it feels like it flies faster than a Shark3 to me.

Speaking of Innova mids, I picked up an RW-Pro Roc (and a RW-Pro Aviar, pictured). I love the plastic! Why's it not in production?:

I picked up a DX Shark the same day as the Cro. Played both for awhile...I pulled the Shark out, but the Cro stayed in the bag.

I looked around here, and there's not much talk about the Cro. I figured it wasn't a very popular disc.

If it works for you, you're not using it wrong. Since you're able to approach consistently with a mid it just means that you have great touch.

Up until a few months ago I used a Classic Roc and a Wedge for those shots because of the feel of the shallow rim. I believe they were both once mids but have been reclassified to P/A.

After using the Maiden for a full round (Trilogy Challenge) it kicked both of those discs out of my bag for regular play, but they served me well for several years.

I've been playing for over 30 years, throw Innova and hardly any other mfg and this is the first Leopard I've ever owned and thrown.
Love the disc and this Pro plastic.

Umm, kinda scored in a used bin yesterday. Flat PFN Star Wraith with a cool GBO stamp with the DD logo, 11x Eagle L and PFN Star Xcal.

Buy 2, get 1 free so I spent $22 for them. 🤘

I've said it before and I'll say it again. You're used bin selection is unreal. Whoever is trading these discs in is CRAZY.

This shop is less than 10 minutes from my house, which is a bit of a problem. It's a convenience store that recently expanded with a DG pro shop and he's been taking trades for 10+ years. Says they have thousands in storage so there's no telling what he has. They aren't taking trades currently and are doing the free one, trying to thin the herd and he's bringing some out of storage. He knows some are valuable and knows guys like me will keep coming back to rummage.

Threw all of them today. Wraith is 173g and nice, probably -1/2.5 out to 350 with a slight tailwind. Eagle feels awesome and is a little flippy. Xcal is the first one I've ever thrown but always intrigued me for FH torque monkey flex shots. It's definitely OS but beat enough to be workable.

Good XCals are some of the most valuable discs to have in the bag. They're worth their weight in gold.
