I thought you would have a DD2 :-) Does the description of the Jokeri as flying like a KC Pro Aviar only in Latitude Zero type plastic ring true to you? Is it slippery now that it's cold and wet and how does it handle winds when driving?

Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

So far only a couple of rounds with it but I'm digging it for stable driving putter (replacing m wizard atm)
In hand it feels like a Pure and plastic is _very_ zeroish and grippy, a little bit stiffer than Zero Pure. Biggest concern about the plastic is if it's going to dinge as bad and as fast as Pure (no hard treesmacks so far..)
I have two in 173-175 range, don't know actual weight. IMO they fly somewhat more stable than KC aviar or Wizard and I didn't get them to flip at all thrown with a little hyzer in calm weather. Haven't thrown it flat with 100% power or into headwind though.

Sounds like a pretty good putter, I need to get some next spring. I would've thought you'd carry more Discmania discs though. =)

I'm guessing with this you're referring to Mr. World/Europe Champ Paju being sponsored by Discmania ? Like I've tried to tell before, I am shamed not to be that guy, just a very average finn..(living in same city though -> almost famous?)
Glad I have written so little cause I see my interwebz cred dropping about 99,5%..

Now that winter's here I've had to take out some trusty friends (beat Rocs, white discs, hard to replace plastic) but of course it's always fun to mess with new stuff. Even though I've played in the snow for a few winters now, there's still an adjustment period where you kinda figure out how to throw in the conditions again. I've been using this rig lately and liking it:

R-Pro Boss (159, newish) - I like what I can do with this disc on the snow. With regular footing in the summer this disc is too flippy...but right now it's all right
Opto xXx (172, new) - I had two Star FBs in the bag to replace my 11x/Champ Glo/CE setup but the stable one wasn't stable enough. This xXx is.
Star Firebird (174, worn) - covers all my backhand FB shots and straighter flicks
S-Line PD (171, used) - stable control, some FH
Star Sidewinder (168, newer) - understable driver, hyzer flips to turn, uphill drives

FLX Buzzz (177, used) - stable mid, I don't like FLX in the summer but in winter temps it feels pretty good - this disc is surprisingly trusty for my FH
Gold Line Fuse (174, new) - straight to understable mid, kicked out my Comet - it's pretty close to a worn Roc off the shelf with a tad more LSS

S Wizard (172, used) - stable drives and approaches, windy putts
SSS Magic (175, new) - finesse approaches, turnover drives
SS Magic (171, used) - alternate putter, throw-in attempts
Organic Magic (172, used) - main putter

cold outside so I'll feed the beast by posting my bag

I am a minimalist and carry about 10 discs typically but switch things up quite a bit. This is how things stand currently

175 Wizard
174 Magnet
2 x Glo Roc (one newish one beat)
175 Dx Leopard
2 x 11x Teebirds
170ish Star Roadrunner
173 Z Surge (just put this in, squirrely but goes far)
175 star Destroyer

Typing this out makes me question the setup. Thinking I will replace a Teebird with a stable short driver, something like a Whippit maybe. suggestions welcome

Oh yeah... I am mostly unfamiliar with the newer discs and manufacturers you kids like these days so pardon the retro nature of the bag, surely it is not intentional. Know what I like and like what I know to a fault

Wintertime bag...darn, I don't carry a bag during the winter, just these two discs:

SS Warlock 175g
CH Teebird 175g

They're the chosen ones because they are
A) red (to increase the chances to find them)
B) not included in my summertime bag (not going to cry if I lose these)

And the not-so-funny thing: with this "bag" I played today at my local course only 2 over my PB. Damn, don't know if I should be happy or very worried!
