How is it that none of us PD-lov'n DG insiders have gotten our paws on one of these yet?


I can't justify it with a stack of about 23 different PD's. :oops:

Have you passed on one or something? I have 28, but I still want a couple of new ones. Ever since I initially fell in love with the PD I've wanted a stiff clear Champion plastic one with a moderate to high dome.

I just noticed that even though I haven't payed any special attention to getting PD's, just buying one or two here, winning an FR S-PD or two there, I've still managed to amass at least 18 of them almost by accident, easily more than any other single mold I have. And I don't even have any C-PD's apart from the CFR run, even though I've been meaning to get them.

I'm almost the opposite. For how often I throw my PD's, I usually only keep one in the bag (DGR champystar). And I've only got 6 total. 3 CFR's, and 3 S's (2 red DGR champystars).

No, just haven't seeked one out is all. I pretty much get all my stuff online since there's no real local options.

I like the PD/Pred combo. I just replaced my CFR PDs with Preds. I think I'm going 4 PD and 2-3 Preds. And yes, there us overlap, but I don't give a flying frack

I don't see that combo as being anything that violates any rules even for a new lower powered player that doesn't face winds often. Different roles moderately OS PD with the OS Pred. Having your power and living in a very windy area magnifies how good the Pred is because it's even better than the best all rounder that takes the cake in wind handling even in the straighter varieties. I don't see much overlap with straighter PDs and the Pred. You don't need my seal of approval but i can see how that pair works. Living by the sea makes the combo even more appealing.
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.
