if its dropping of straight down, it would even be hard to get a golden retriever to pull anything up that.

thats a nice throw on 8 (expo) How did you end up left up the hill, was it a fairly straight shot w/ little fade or right turn? THeres not much room to fade from the right over the top of the basket is there?

Yea, I put a little Anhyzer on the disc and it faded between the trees.

Played Pueblo today and man it was a beautiful day. I'm loving this Valkyrie and DX Wraith more an more, lost a roc today tho, totally shanked a shot on #11 full speed toss dead smack intot eh center of the tree 10feet from the tee box. Roc = Taco. Really bummed too it was one of my favorite Ching Rocs.
I ended up Even going into #16, then I bogey that hole, then Circle 6 #17 and par out. I was so bummed, still one of my best rounds ever on that course.

never much cared for the DX plastic, besides side by side comparisons.....I can get the same distance out of DX, PRO, and CHAMPION.

HOWEVER, The new Star Line yeilds about 20ft more and has the added bonus of being slightly more overstable. DX just always seemed too flippy for me. I can now throw star plastic on a straighter holding line with an almost non existant S curve meaning that it comes out of flat for about 5 feet of rightward shift before going back to flat to glide. Look out long tunnel shots.

Yeah, I'm really loving the Star Valkyrie. It's about 15-20feet longer then my DX Valkyrie.

valk

Postby twmccoy » Wed Mar 08, 2006 5:09 pm

My longest valkyrie is a 165 champ model. This one just plain hauls ass and glides so well. I haven't thrown any other valk that could match it so far.
