well I quit throwing the ppd since they've been inconsistant lately. The first ones I had were $$ then I bougt a stack and was cycling them and they were beefier than spds. No likey. So I got the rush,the rush is basically a roadrunner and I've used the rr for yrs so naturally I fell in love. . I'm just sorta cruisin the plastic for the slow fairway slot that I can possibly swap out the stalker for because I'm throwing my buzzes on holes I used to throw stalkers on when I was throwing rocs.
always looking for:
flat pink/red barstamp buzzzs, ce aviars, pearly pro candy fb's, pearly champion gators (fr or stock stamp),

Mildly...Jesse is throwing it, so it can't be too bad. :wink:
My P-PDs are taking a break while I try out the River in my bag. I'm looking forward to getting a heavier/flatter//HPL one to compliment the one I have. The domey 172 I'm throwing is a great finesse and turnover disc, but if an elephant in Africa farts in my direction it knocks it offline. I'm hoping I can find another to fly a little better in mild winds, as well as being able to take a little more power on lower lines.

I too have little confidence now in the P-PDs coming out consistently, especially over time. I also would like a flippy disc that stays the same for a little longer with tree hits. As my S-PD beats in I'm also noticing a lot of overlap with the P-PD, so I'd like to fortify my lineup with something with a little more glide (especially on annies).

this is the direction i took quite a while ago, once my go to S-pd got really beat there just wasnt any room for my P-lines between my S-lines and (at the time) my CD's (now my Rivers)

(edit: the rim is barely slanted, nothing like the Riot/Blitz or even the Halo)

The flightpath is a bit different, and being premium plastic the TD will stay at that spot much longer. If you decide to give them a try, remember that the gummier ones are more understable and fit the TD name better, the stiffer ones on the other hand are much more stable, don't turn much at all. Jussi Meresmaa does wonderful things with both and Dave F. seemed to really like the stiffer ones for super straight shots.

I'm starting to figure out my River and my affection for this mold is growing...Today I was getting it straight through gaps down the fairway and then getting a late turnover and recovery...Some really cool and crazy lines I've not really seen out of a new premium plastic disc before. It's definitely doing things that my P-PD cannot, so it's safe to say the River is 100% solidified in my bag now. Thanks again to Jeronimo...I'm sure I would have found the River on my own sooner or later, but I'm glad it was sooner :wink: .

I love everything about that disc except for the color. It's one of the hardest discs to see against anything green that I've ever played with. Good thing I usually have a good idea where it's at.

Hmmmm, I thought that would be a good color for you because up here it sticks out like a sore thumb. Must be due to the more tropical flora down there. Sorry man!

I don't give a shit about color...and honestly most Opto is just as hard to find. It's chameleon plastic.

This is pretty much how I feel about it. It is taking over some of the shots I used to use TLs or Rocs for. The only thing I don't like it how smooth the plastic is. Next spring I intend to get a coupe more so I can give them to newer players together with a putter as a starter pack. Mine is burnt orange and the color is pretty much terrible in the fall as least where I live.
