yeah, probably more fade than 3 now that I think that my eagles and orcs are rated 3 LSS.

Just bought a premium Jokeri in opaque pink plastic. Very nice looking but different from the highly transparent discs I'm used to and maybe a little slicker. Certainly gonna be much easier to find, and the mold is exact. Just an FYI.

I'm actually using a Premium Jokeri to putt with. Got it for use as a 'wind putter', but quickly realized it's great inside the circle. Opto-like plastic but pretty flexible. As a putter the Jokeri slams into the chains and sticks! The thing I've noticed most compared to other putters is that when it hits the chains it drops down fast into the basket, very little doubt. I've also made some putts with it I had no business sinking, where it would grab one chain on the outside and still drop in. Could be the leading edge design, could be the plastic. Surprisingly good putter though! And it will last forever.

A friend of mine recently found a Legenda. Really sharp wing. He throws it forehand. Seems to be between a Nuke and a Force. After seeing him throw it, I did not bother. Would like to try a Slaidi.

I have not heard anything to the contrary why do you ask? I saw Kai Vesa at the European Championships.
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.

They're still all over the place in Finland (as much as they've ever been), so no signs of them stopping. Could just be the US importers causing the situation there.

I love me some prodiscus and I think Kai is cool as shit, but sometimes he just leaves me hanging when I ask about ordering some plastic or some gear. Probably just has too much going on and I'm just a noisy needle in a whole haystack of customers.

Either way, I love his stuff. Still rocking the bag, the Legenda is still my longest disc, and the Laseri is exactly that... A laser.
I am dumb.

...and a drama queen.

The new putter is called SPARTa (what the hell Kai?). Got mine today but it's wet outside, snowing and all that so I think I'll wait a couple of days to actually try it out.

Here's a comparison pic with sparta (left) and jokeri. Specs say sparta is 2mm taller than jokeri and it is very noticeable. For me the feel is pretty same so I'm hoping I'll like the flight as well.

They've got some pretty good looking baskets now as well that came out over the summer, good price, i might look at them for the next course I do. not sure if they are importing to the states yet but a friend (slightly affiliated to prodiscus so we'll take it with a grain of salt :) ) rates them higher than the discatchers for about 2/3rds of the price.

Got a few throws with Sparta today. Still snow on the ground and temperature around 0C (32F).

Can only say that it's a straight putter. Won't turn with my power and will have minimal fade even with higher throws.
Depending on how it behaves after some use, I may replace the beaten Jokeri I use for straight approaches with this. If it becomes understable then it would overlap with the Swans and I like the lower profile of the swan more.

Btw there's another new disc from Prodiscus called Titan coming. Same rim width as Laseri and Respecti but that's pretty much all I know about it. Kai also mentioned third "hero" coming soon.
