The thing is that's a pretty specific length. The hole has to be just outside your fairway driver distance, but still inside you distance driver distance and ending up more than 10'-20' off target can't cost you any strokes. It's just not something that comes up often enough for distance drivers to deserve to get as much attention as they do, IMO.black udder wrote:The only debate is "do I want to carry it or not?" Usage is such a relative issue. If you don't mind carrying it around, then leave it in. As for the extra 45-65' of D - that could be the difference between a 20' putt and a 60' putt. To me, that's a birdie opportunity. It would be worth it to me (if I could throw it with some confidence and consistency) to continue to throw it.

I have recently been able to re up my stash of X Preds, so the bag has changed back to form of days of old.
1. Stable Control Drivers
173 X Predator, beat
172 Super grip Tsunami, new [test flight stages]
2. Distance Driver
172 Pro Destroyer, seasoned
3. Understable Driver
170 Champ Leopard, Seasoned x2
4. Moderately Overstable Driver
173 X Predator, newish
5. Very Overstable Driver
172 Z Flick, seasoned [trick shots galore]
DX Rocs x3
Wizards x2, putting/driving
1080, jump putts
Rattler, trick shots, nothing but right turns, catch
I've just recently put Leopards back in the bag, and I'm enjoying them again. Good for just about any line, and can really get out there on a hyzer flip line.
The Rattler comes and goes as the mood hits me. I love to throw it, but just don't seem to use it all that often. It's in for the time being.

Well that's the reason for the switch. Xtreme is really a bit too overstable to the point of only being used for thumbers and short spikes. I can use the Whippet for more situations and I have a bit more range with it.uNicedmeMan wrote:Your thoughts on the whippet vs xtreme? Xtreme more overstable? Unecessarily so?
Well that's the reason for the Cyclones. I use the Cyclone where you probably use the TB, and the PD if it's a longer shot. And it depends on what you have.uNicedmeMan wrote:Leopards gone? I hear what your saying on the limited range control, I will throw a teebird in situations where I need a fade to limit the range. What are you going to do with all your tasty leopards now?
Most definitely. It'll probably replace the X Cyclone, mainly for grip reasons.uNicedmeMan wrote:Are you thinking about trying out an ESP cyclone?
And see, I went the other way for the same reason.dgdave wrote:The main reason I went Xtremes over whippets is the grip is more comfy for me.
