A TB that flies straight doesn't flip at all, that's the beauty of a good TB. =)JR wrote:Leo at most because to get a tb beaten in so straight it likes to flip more than the most hss leo which is star.

Word. That's Roc or powered-down Leo range.
How's that? What are you even saying?JR wrote:
The statement that PMantle made is plain wrong objectively for any kind of distance giving apex height which is not needed for 300'.
PMantle made a bizarre statement about not remembering 300'. So if an approach or a hole is 300' long a 400' thrower always overshoots by a 100'? Yes exactly. Derrr....
No, I have very clear memories of that time. When I was throwing around 280-300' max I had two Star SL's (one is actually my avatar). It was horrible for that. The only way I could get it to do anything other than fade out too early was to either throw it with a huge anhyzer or OAT it. It just has too much fade and too little turn to work properly at those distances as anything other than an overstable driver. And still it was barely 20' longer at best than my mids. And that applied to just about every very fast disc. I also had a Monarch back then, and it flew exactly the same way for me then (only when I learned how to throw did the differences become clear). I really, truly, honestly wish that I could travel back in time to beat some sense into myself.PMantle wrote:This kind of thing gets repeated on board a lot. It's flat out objectively wrong. It's as if some of you have no memory of throwing those distances. The SL is perfect for that. Speed 10. -1 and only 2. I won't even get into the mid and t-bird advice.
Once again I really do find it funny how we can have so insanely different experiences with a disc. =)JR wrote:Not one of my six Teebirds i've had over the years has been non flipping if they had little fade at any kind of height that would give it distance.
