As for talk about Eagles, remember there's both Eagle X's and Eagle L's floating around. EL's are like a faster Polaris LS or slower Beast and fly pretty much the same in both DX and Champ plastic. EX's are a different animal completely. In DX they are throwable with 325' of power. In Star they need more like 360'+ of power. In Champ they need more like 380'+ of power on em to be able to work em at all. In a perfect world, people would be able to throw 390'+ consistently before grabbing an EX in premium plastic.
I have the very same problem with anything wider rimmed than a PD really, not getting the hit. When my form is in shape(ie. I've been playing actively) I have no trouble reaching 430' with a PD on a straight line, but RARELY go over 460' with anything wide rimmed be it blizzard or near max weight. Is it just a grip power problem? Can it be fixed by altering grip, or possibly just doing strengthening exercises?
Or could it be that my timing's a little off all the time, and it starts showing with the widest rims in form of slippage?
