How would you describe PFN Star Xcals when it comes to their flight? Are they like overstable for headwind-shots or would you describe them as more straighter than say a Brand new Destroyers?

I use my pair of PFN XCals like Nate Sexton does for max distance FH (I'm just much worse than he is). I rarely if ever will throw one backhand. The thing I like most about the PFN Xcal is that they tend to hold the release angle for a very long time before fading hard. The fade is pretty similar to a Destroyer, but the old XCals are more of a straight to fade flight without much turn. I also find that the fade kicks in later than with a Destroyer, so I am able to get better distance with an XCal over Destroyers. I will use them in most winds, unless there is a massive headwind. Once the wind is up around 20-25 mph in my face, I'm probably not trying for max D anymore and will throw a placement shot with my Firebird.

Bag Since Last Update (6 rounds):

1x Polecat (XT)- 9 throws.
3x Omega (DT, Lunar SS, & Gummy Quantum)- 179 total throws (165 putts).
3x Pig (R-Pro & Pro)- 46 throws.
3x Roc (DX & KC Pro)- 14 throws.
1x Sentinel (Quantum)- 8 throws.
2x JLS (no run MJLS & 1.2 QJ)- 3 throws.
3x OLF (1.1 SOLF, 1.2 MOLF, 1.3 MOLF)- 22 throws.
3x Firebird (Champion & Color Glow Champ)- 43 throws.
2x Xcal (PFN Star)- 8 throws.

It has still been very windy here, and my most stable plastic is getting lots of work. I've been throwing the Pig very poorly off the tee for a few weeks now, so I really need to slow down and focus when using it. It would be nice to snap out of this funk before Clash at the Creek.

Bag Since Last Update (4 rounds):

1x Polecat (R-Pro)- 5 throws. 165 gram R-Pro is back in the bag for the upcoming tournament.
3x Omega (DT, Lunar SS, & Gummy Quantum)- 116 total throws (110 putts).
3x Pig (R-Pro & Pro)- 27 throws.
3x Roc (DX & KC Pro)- 11 throws.
2x Sentinel (Quantum)- 2 throws.
2x JLS (Glow QJ & 1.2 QJ)- 2 throws. I never throw the MJLS and switched it for the glow, but probably could just cut down to the one QJ and be fine.
3x OLF (1.1 SOLF, 1.2 MOLF, 1.3 MOLF)- 15 throws.
2x Firebird (Champion & Color Glow Champ)- 20 throws. Lost my favorite beat Sexton on Tuesday, gonna miss that one. I look forward to beating on in to replace it, hopefully it won't take too long. Real unfortunate turn of events a week before my last event of the year, I used to throw that one a whole lot at Widefield. The most stable OLF is going to be getting lots of these shots now.
2x Xcal (PFN Star)- 5 throws.

My last tournament of the year is next Saturday/Sunday at Widefield, it will be my first B-tier ever. As a goal, I'd like to still be in contention on Sunday for the final round instead of playing essentially meaningless golf.

Bag Since Last Update (5 rounds):

1x Polecat (R-Pro)- 5 throws.
3x Omega (DT, Lunar SS, & Gummy Quantum)- 156 total throws (138 putts).
3x Pig (R-Pro & Pro)- 37 throws.
3x Roc (DX & KC Pro)- 6 throws.
2x Sentinel (Quantum)- 1 throw.
2x JLS (Glow QJ & 1.2 QJ)- 5 throws.
3x OLF (1.1 SOLF, 1.2 MOLF, 1.3 MOLF)- 11 throws.
2x Firebird (Champion & Color Glow Champ)- 44 throws.
2x Xcal (PFN Star)- 10 throws.

The last round for Clash at the Creek was cancelled due to incoming weather. Instead of two rounds in the short layout yesterday we played one and one in Sunday’s long layout. Very fun tournament even if I was looking forward to my first two day event. I rode the rollercoaster all day on both rounds with inconsistent play. Despite that I had a blast and even stayed close to the leaders from the chase card. I finished 4 strokes behind first place which was good for 8th. Looking forward to playing in some events again next year.

Now that tournament season is over I plan on throwing more midrange and slower rounds at Widefield to work on my BH and longer upshots. I may just add in a few OLFs or JLS as my only driver. Either way a smaller bag will be fun to play around with.

Bag Since Last Update (unknown # of rounds & throws):

1x Polecat (XT)
3x Omega (DT, Lunar SS, & Gummy Quantum)
2x Pig (R-Pro & Pro)
5x Roc (Star, DX & KC Pro)
5x OLF (MOLF & SOLF)
3x Firebird (Champion & Color Glow Champ)

There have been a couple of random discs I've thrown in addition to the above. I've mostly just been practicing or playing beer rounds and haven't bothered to keep track of my throws since the tournament. Last ratings update put me at 934 going into next year hopefully I can continue to trend in the right direction.
