What if they're giving you some plastic?

If they're giving you plastic on the agreement that you are to throw only theirs, that is the same thing as them paying you. It doesn't have to be cash.

I've started throwing the Pred again, and I am loving it! I can rip these on a hyzer and never have to worry about where it is going to land. Flex them out for a little extra distance, but you still know where it's going. I carry a 174 in ESP and Z, with the ESP having just a little bit more glide.

Preds are much longer than I thought when beat in. I'm pretty sure I don't need avengers much anymore.

They're incredibly long when beat. I have an old Z that has a lot of its stability beaten out of it and it flies like a used champ Teebird now, but way faster. It absolutely bombs if you put a little anny on it. Definitely one of the longest discs in my bag.

I have a dyed x-pred that I love throwing, incredibly worn in fact. If I was to go out and snag a brand new esp pred what differences in flight am I looking at if any? I'm not gonna bother with the flx pred.

Any of the current production Preds will be quite a bit more stable than the X Pred ever was. The flatter ones will lack some glide.

So wait, do Tsunami's not have that little notch/bead on the bottom of their rims like the current Preds do? I think the only reason I stopped throwing a Pred is b/c that rim was uncomfortable to me with FH. I was really enjoying how it was breaking in but I couldn't flick it to save my life.

It's still there on the Tsunami, but it's not nearly as pronounced.

Z avenger rims were super sharp feeling for forehands for me. I have a handful of tsunamis to audition in replacement for my super beat Z pred.

I have a buddy that loves flicking Tsunamis. He says they fly like a beat in Pred. Sounds like you will be happy with them. I threw some of his, and they were more overstable than my super beat Pred, but still similar. I'm sure once you beat a Tsunami in a little it will be money.

I've been throwing a 170 Orange/Pink Pred lately and it is sneaky long. Mine holds a real predictable hzyer line all the way and skips a little, not enough to worry about. I've ripped it flat and gotten some turn out of it, so it must be one of the lesser stable ones. Also, mine does get some noticeable turn in a headwind, but it still fights most of the time. Then again, this is the only Pred that I've really thrown and payed attention to as much (except a Z Pred my friend has). I'm still trying to get used to throwing sidearm as it might replace my Flicks. I love how the disc fades forward and has great glide too.

I always heard the Pred and FB being compared to each other and I'm not so sure it is a fair comparison. In my experience, FBs like to fade right away when coming out and Preds seem to stay straight and have a predictable fade at the end.

I'm really liking this disc, but I see what Discspeed says about some overlap with PDs. More testing will tell me what I need to do.
It's all about discipline and focused practice!
