Could you help a newbie out, when everyone says DD, what do they mean? Online store?

Thanks so much!

similar idea, but the 86 is a much smaller diameter.

Anyone know how the magic compares in diameter?

Magic is 21.0, just like the Wizard

Whittler is 22.6
'86 is 21.3

After you've done some business with Jeremy at DD you'll always be looking to find a way to throw some D's on it. Great selection and awesome customer service. I have more DD stuff, who's based in Kansas, than I do Twisted Flier stuff, who's based about 30 miles from me in Oklahoma.

Well, I got 2 glows, but I may change my mind. He's looking at how domey his flashes are right now for me, and he's getting in 5 of "my" elements soon.

Not really. Softies don't retain height at speeds where Whitler keeps on cruising on a straight line. Even when initially broken in a Softie fades more.

The '86 is an old school putter. While not as overstable as the wizard (magnet, aviar, pretty much anything now a days), it does drop. It does have more glide though, so it's good for floaty type shots.

The Whittler really reminds me of a freestyle disc. I can throw big air bounces with it, and really put it on a rope inside of 100'.

It's just like every other online dealer, except he loves to pay seller fees to ebay!

F'real Rusco, when you gonna make a real website to sling plastic, and just auction the stuff that isn't stock? You're losing tons of dough to ebay for no reason.

Throw some fees on it!!


*cough* I'm workin on it.. ;)

For the profile...think of a blunter nosed warlock.
If the object of disc golf were to hit trees, I'd be 1100 rated.
