Respect Matt's opinion! He was probably at least 995 rated.

I did not see the the licensing imprint on the Force. Is it expired or somehow limited?

There're quite a lot of discs in my bag that don't have the patent info on them... FLX buzzz, tsunami, both my ESP avengers, all my Doss surges, force, surge SS, 150 flick...

heck, the only ones that DO seem to have it are my Comets and APXs...

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.

I could be wrong but once the patent # life span (I know theres a more tehnical term), was over I don't think it was necessary anymore to include the number. I'm pretty sure its 20 years until its public domain, and all those drivers are post 2003. At least that's what I'm thinking.

I should just put a warning in the title like "this thread is horrible" or "this is the thread all the crappy jokes are about".

I personally use a DX Skeeter as a putter and a Midrange. So, I'm able to get a range of putt to 200' with one disc. I also use a TL for everything else in the 100 to 300' range depending on the situation. My main driver for 300+' is the Viking. My wind, forehand and short fade driver is the Xcal. With these 4 discs I get everything covered.
