I like it when you play a round with someone and just slay it with a putter or a mid obviously at a higher skill level and they tell you something ridiculous like you should try a Boss for this 200' shot or have you tried this Xcal I use it for everything.

That being said I miss throwing my first run ESP forces..

Ive only ever played with one guy who threw an epic.. He could get pretty crazy distance but control? Not so much..

this person had it dialed in

most holes at the course were open and 200-350 ft and no tunnel/ceiling shots

I carry a couple Factory Second's in my bag (they're cheaper, which is nice). Every once in a while someone asks me what that is and sees the "F2" on the front, and I'm not sure if they're confusing it with a Prodigy F2, but are convinced that they've thrown that same model before. Despite the fact that I can pull two different "model" F2's out of my bag and they still think it's the mold.

"Oh is that an F2? I used to throw those."
"Actually it stands for Factory Second, it's an Innova thing where they sell cheaper discs that may have blemishes"
"I just didn't like my F2"
"Well they're all different molds, so..."
"It was too flippy."

Any shot that is more than 25 feet and less than 70 he is throwing this Zypher and laying up. To be fair on all but one he left himself an easy drop in, but if he had tried to putt on many of these he might have saved 3-4 strokes.
Or maybe not. Running the pin and going 20 feet by might be the chance for this guy to add 3-4 strokes on missed comebacks.

My Brother in law: "I can tell I've added some power because I'm starting to overpower this Avenger SS"

His max drive is 250 tops, and the Avenger SS in question was Pro D plastic...

On the more OS Firebird note, there used to be a guy around here who said his Max was getting too flippy.
I've played with people that literally had flippy max's. Good players. Throw flat and they fly like a beat teebird, I refused to believe it until I looked at the disc.

I have a really old and gummy star max that is like this, flips up to flat from a hyzer and rides 300ish ft on a rope before a nice gentle fade. I have thrown some of the longest forehand rollers of my life with it.
