So I'm getting a lot more time with this Pro PD, and I can't get over how awesome this thing is to throw. It's the perfect combination of speed and reliability. Right now, I'm pretty much throwing it as much as I possibly can on every possible line. One of the nicest things about this disc is how much easier it is to torque over on a controlled L/R line. The only shot it isn't good for is a low power turnover shot because it will fade back out, so I've got the Sabre in the bag for that, which will probably get booted for a while once the ESP Cyclone comes out. I can really see my arsenal of workhorse drivers being a combination of S PDs and P PDs in both the 169 and 175 range, and a range of Cyclones to cover control shots.

2 168 S Wizards for putting
1 175 M Wizard for driving
2 175+ dx Rocs for midrange
1 174 E Blaze for utility shots
1 171 E Sabre for control shots
1 169 P FreakPD for drives
1 172 E Spirit for hard left and skips

I lost my last nice Sabre finally. Good thing the Cyclone is coming out in ESP soon, because I'm tired of hunting down nice Sabres :).

For now though:
2 168 SS Wizards for putting
2 175 S/M Wizards for driving
3 175+ dx Rocs for midranage
1 168 Champ Leopard for fairway
1 174 E Blaze for tricks
1 169 P PD for distance
1 170 S PD for overstable

The Pro PD is a thing of beauty. I can really throw it on a lot of angles and get it to hold them. Seasoned, the disc flips a little (more of a track to the right) then fades a small amount. The majority of the flight is straight. It's the closest thing to a faster Teebird that I've found.

I can't believe I still haven't tossed any PD's yet. These may be my next venture.

I think you'd like them. Think more stable Pro Orc. Very tasty.

Spirit is at home. The Blaze is in and out of the bag; it's normally in on windy days, but I haven't been playing a lot, so I haven't used it as much. I'm trying to get the hang of the S PD by throwing it everywhere I'd throw a Spirit. It doesn't really fade out as hard as a Spirit when the winds get above 25, but it does stays pretty straight without buckling.

If you throw the S PD on a hyzer, it's going to hold it.

Nice, I thought that's what you'd say. Good to get to know a mold real well. BTW, anyone know what top is on the PD? If the OLF is a chicken bottom with wraith top, what's the PD? Chicken bottom w/ ???

That's the big 64 thousand dollar question.

Its a new top from what I can tell. It looks like a spirit top. The DD and PD share the same top.

Bag hasn't changed much. Just added some discs of the same mold.

2 Putting wizards (168g Softs)
2 Driving wizards (175g, both mediums, 1 new, 1 beat up)
1 Magic (168g Soft

2 dx Rancho Rocs (180g, one new, one really beat up)
1 dx San Marino Roc (175g, 2 ring, little seasoned)

1 D Cyclone (171g, new, need to break it in for flip shots)
1 ESP Cyclone (171g, broken in, workhorse fairway driver)

1 P PD (168g, really beat up, used for flip shots or to go right)
1 P PD (168g, new, flies very straight before fading)
1 S PD (170g, it's the beef. Very good in the wind)

At the UPS Store right now are 5 168g Medium Wizards. Can't wait to pick those up.

Some small changes

168g medium Wizards for putting - newish
168g medium Wizards for putting - newish
175g medium Wizard for driving - new
175g medium Wizard for driving - beat up

180 dx Roc for midrange - broken in
180 dx Roc for midrange - thrashed
175 dx Roc for midrange - broken in
168 dx Roc for midrange - broken in

172 ESP Cyclone for fairway - broken in
171 RR TP Cyclone for fairway - new
174 RR TP Cyclone for fairway - thrashed

169 P PD for controlled distance - trashed
171 P PD for controlled distance - new
170 S PD for controlled distance - broken in

-
I just got the TPs, and Blake is right, they don't fly like the ESP. The ESP has a lot earlier fade. However, the ESP Cyclone fades while still going forward, where the TP Cyclone just keeps going straight. Both are going to fit very nicely into my bag. People ask me all the time what disc I threw when I throw a Cyclone.

I'm pretty sure the Pro Boss is going into the bag once it gets released. Maybe a Star Boss too for headwind D. And a flat Firebird for trick shots. I just need by Simian to carry all this stuff.

What I threw this weekend at the Club Championship:

2x 168 Medium Wizards
2x 175 Medium Wizards (1 new, 1 beat)

3x 180 dx Rocs (1 new, 1 broken in, 1 thrashed)
1x 168 dx Roc

2x 174 RR Cyclones (1 new, 1 thrashed)
2x 171 P PDs (1 new, 1 thrashed)
1x 170 S PD
1x 170 E Spirit

I didn't throw the Spirit much. I did get to use the 168 Roc twice, once on a tight standstill shot over OB (didn't make it though), and again on a low standstill shot where I didn't feel comfortable powering a putter.

As for shooting, well, my putting looked pretty bad all weekend, but I rattled off a 54 at Cliff Drive by playing smart, which was 1 stroke off the hot round. It was the 1st time I've played 4 rounds in a weekend since sometime in July or early August, and really enjoyed myself.
