Not sure if that's where you are or not...your distance doesn't make me think so, but I'm just wondering why you don't throw any slower discs (other than the Stalker). Pros with big arms all know how to handle slower stuff. And like its been said before, the wider the rim, the harder it is to get control, repeatability, accuracy, and the skip at the end could kill your shot.
No I don't have oat problems. I'm just newer to the sport and am loving it. And you guys help me a whole lot with all of this.
For me I guess I'm having a hard time finding reasons for slower discs. Obviously there is a reason for them but for me like I said I have this fluke nuke ss which handles pretty much all annys for me. It never comes back and the skips across the ground are bad I'm not gonna lie. It also will sometimes turn over touch and be a roller. But for me until this disc which I know isnt normal but until this the anny shots drove me crazy. And pretty much anything else i can hit 300 with the stalker with either some hyzer or pretty dead straight tunnel shots. Greater that 300 I just tee off with my krait or Orc that stays close to the ground (about 15') and they just go. And if it it more than 350' I use the nuke or destroyer based on how I am feeling that day.
So I guess when my annys are already being shot with this fluke nuke ss from 220+ and stalker is taking care of the rest I just don't see why I need a teebird eagle or leopard. What are they gonna do for me? Maybe the Leopard powered up will get the anny shots but again the only thing better is the bounce at the end. Which you could argue is a good thing and worth it. But as far as a teebird or eagle.... They will s curve or fade out. Go further then the stalker but for me if it's that far I use a distance driver because I don't have to crack it so hard or worry about the disc flipping over on me. So I'm just struggling to see why use them? My krait and orc go hard and low and straight to 330-350. Why use and eagle? And I don't think anyone would say don't use a krait or Orc for 330-350 shots with low ceilings. I have a teebird and can knock it out to 330-350 consistantly but I need a lot of room for it to s curve or hyzer flip it to go straight and then fade out. Which is exactly what my Orc and krait do anyways.
So I dunno. But I wanna learn so convince me!
But on a side note I LOVE just driving discs and working on max d! So another reason I dominately have wide rimmed discs is because I mostly buy those looking for the ONE (if you know what I'm saying) that will go 400'+ every time I throw it. Which I know it's all form but I love trying new discs. Lol. So for my fairway I got a stalker and make it work for me for everything but annys. And annys as stated the nuke ss takes care of it. So anyways, I wanna learn but as of now this is my logic. And I will grow from here... So let's hear it!
