Aaron_D wrote:Well, Ive been doing it a lot with my all dx bag and it has worked out great. I prefer to throw the slowest driver I can for any given shot and I find I can get leopards out pretty far if I give them a lot of hyzer and wrist roll and I dont have to air them out. Same for the SOLS, I am throwing it consistently farther than I was throwing the pro wraith and esp flash that were competeing for that slot. They were longer on some throws, but they were so nose angle sensitive they would often get 1 or 2 degrees too nose up and stall or get 1 or two degrees down and bite the dirt. I also dont have to throw the orion as hard.
Aaron_D wrote:the flash is faster than the sols. The flashis a great disc, but the sols has a thinner rim and is slower but is almost as long for me. I can throw the flash a little bit farther, but not enough to justify it. The sols fits in my hand better and is more controllable.
the sols and pro wraiths were 175 the esp flash is 173. Im talking about the 1.2 sols which is f-ing amazing. SO domey.
Aaron_D wrote:the 1.1 and 1.2 sols are much more similar than they are compared to any run solf. The sols should be very straight if hyzerflipped up to about 400' in calm conditions with a straight finish. They dont hold up to headwinds, that's what solfs are for. The 1.2 solf is really great in windy conditions--better than a teebird imo. I liked the teebird better than the first run solf for windy conditions. In calm conditions I cannot flip the 1.2 solf past flat on a smooth throw and I have put them over 430'.
The 1.2 sols is much domier than the first runs and it seems a few ticks more stable. I would not really care too much if I were throwing a first run or 1.2 sols, but I would rather throw a 1.2 solf a lot more than a first run.
A lot of people think the sols is good for players who throw in the 330-350 range because it is fairly understable, but truly the JLS is better for players in that range and the orions only really become truly useful after you are regularly breaking 380'. One catch is that you have to have a throw with less OAT to get the most out of these discs.
3 whole days without Teebirds, you must have been jonesin' pretty bad by the end there.Aaron_D wrote:back on the teebird bandwagon and experimenting with max weight putters.
