i switched to BH this year and still don't have the distance for a PD. But...my beat in 166 S-PD is still in the bag b/c i can count on it for 350' dead straight FH shot everytime, wind or not. such a money disc.

How common are pearly C-PD's? I snagged one the other day and it is beefy...in a good way. Thinking of picking up another one as a backup in case they are hard to get a hold of.

I ordered a few of the regular rim c line f2s from the factory store and got some merlots with some pearliness to them. They work well as my meathook pd.

I bought a couple of them off Dehaas and they are nice and stable-overstable.

Already have some discussion going on about this elsewhere, but figured I could get more info here. Just switched to the PDs but I haven't thrown them long enough to really understand what the gaps I'm missing in my drivers by basically only using them. I'm liking them, but what discs are you guys pairing with them to cover your drivers? Some that I'm looking at are FD, Sidewinder, and Roadrunner...

Its possible to get a beat p pd to do the things thos would do, but youre better off just using any one of those for understable and lower power shots. Likewise you could cover a lot of the shots (not all) with a new beefy S or a CFR PD that a mold like a FB or pred would do, but youre better of having a mold that is more OS than the PD. Basically, how i compliment my PD is with a pred and a RR. I want to cover the extremes of what the pd canT do out of the box with different molds and everything between i have a couple of pds for. Works pretty well.

My PD / Driver Spectrum:

CFR PD
Stable C-PD
Beat 1st Run S-PD
Champystar S-TD
Really old glow Cal Teebird (doesn't really fit but it will never leave the bag...)
S-FD

For me that covers almost every shot outside of 250ft, even some long distance lines (400-450ft). I throw Destroyers and Quasars, but only on Charlotte's longer courses or for holes that require some beefy shots.

Apart from max D (DD2) and thumber discs (FR Premium RESPECTi), I only have the TD in there currently, though the FD will most likely secure a spot very soon. Basically the PD, if used in stages of wear and different plastics, can handle everything from straight to just below meathook overstable, and beaten in enough it can also do fantastic understable stuff. I do however like to supplement it with an understable mold, and that's where the beat TD's, and more lately the FD's, come in.

I used to only throw PD's for drivers in 2010 for quite a while, using three seasoned and beat P-PD's for low power and understable stuff, new and very slightly seasoned S-PD's for neutral to moderately overstable and windy stuff, and a flat CFR C-PD for a meathook. The only drivers I had apart from those were two P-DD's for all out distance. It worked really well. In the long term though I didn't want to be constantly cycling P-PD's, so I got some S-TD's to fill the understable duties, which they have done admirably well after beating them in.

Yes on the OS stuff, I personally prefer the Banshee even though its a tad shorter, but I kept that out of the equation for simplicity. I do have a FB to throw in when I feel like I'll need it. Thanks for the vote on the RR, still curious if anyone thinks a SW or FD works with the PD better... I know I've heard a lot of love for the PD/FD combo since the FDs have come out.

I'd say the FD works better than the SW, if only because FD is more versatile. The SW is quite a fast disc and doesn't work as well as the FD when powering down.

I carry both the SW and FD. My cPD and sPD fill my more stable to overstable slots while occasionally throwing in a z predator when It's super windy. Jubuttid said it right, the FD is more versatile. It replaced my champ leos in that regard. The sidewinder gets regulated to just off the tee duties. While the FD can take over for those shots where my Rocs are gonna be a hair short. They power down nicely.

Can somebody do me the favor of comparing the pd to the surge?

Not even in the same ballpark. PD is a bit slower with more HS and LS stability.

Surge ~= Wraith. And Wraith ain't no PD.

Surge is slightly shorter slower less fading Wraith and a class above the PD in distance.
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.
