Are you going to share? Otherwise this is a pretty voyeuristic thread.
Fair enough. It is the midrange I was waiting for, the Fuse and Core are bit to understable for my liking so I have been using a buzzz (closest thing I could find to what I wanted, although my next move was to try the Hornet). But the buzzz does not always have a fade I can depend on. When thrown with good snap the Pain will hold the line and have a consistant dependable fade. The fade is not over exaggerated and carries forward momentum. I have noticed that it is an ok headwind disc. Weak to moderate headwinds are ok, but a really windy day and I would not throw it into a head wind if I needed the disc to finish hyzer. I am particularly happy with the amount of glide the disc has, especially for how stable it is. I find the pain to be very comfortable in my hand, even more so than my Roc's or Buzzz's. My home course is very wooded and so some of the fairways are very tight. I am able hit my lines very consitently with the Pain, and thus keeps my frustration down. So you could say that the pain is a stress reducer for my life. What a bonus, a disc with added health benefits. We all know what stress can do to the bodies health. Anyway, back to the disc. When thrown with hyzer it will hold a fade throughout the entire flight. Since it has a good amount of glide the disc will still get good distance and not hyzer out and dive on you. Since I do not use flex shots I can not speak to how the pain performs in this role, but everything I have seen others post is that it does well.
I am anxious to see how the disc seasons. I hope they stay on the stable side even after taking a lot of abuse, in my case trees. I will post again with my findings as the disc beats in, since it seems I am one of the very few people on this site that aren't snowed in.
