In all seriousness Jim, you need to try a CTD. I think you'd really like the stability out of the box. I also think this disc would go as far or farther for you than anything else.

Planning on it, in fact I had a half-written text to you in my phone when I decided I didn't feel like driving up to Clearwater and went to Taylor instead. I was going to ask if you thought all the ones at the store were pretty much the same since I'll probably get one in the 170-172 range.

Edit: Are you still occupied on Thursday afternoons? I have a super weird work schedule at the moment and will probably be sleeping through the early afternoon tomorrow but once I wake up I've got nothing going on and was going to go play somewhere, most likely Cliff so I can pick up a TD.

Threw my production C-TD a bit yesterday. Flies really nice. Haven't gotten to throw it against my new S line yet though, but it fits nicely next to my worn S in the bag. Absolute bombs in a tailwind with this disc. Didn't notice the 'slant' in the rim, feels nearly identical to my older S line. For reference, my C is an orange 175.

The TD has a permanent place in my bag for turnover drives, fits nicely in the lineup next to my Eagles.

Don't have time to say much in detail but the above turned out to be correct today. I bought a 172g orange C-TD and had some real long shots with it, I think my longest drives ever on two holes. It also worked quite well for normal shots, I threw a beautiful big hyzer to plant it right next to a basket and it generally worked however I wanted it to. Hole 18 at Cliff Stephens is listed at 695 feet but I think is more like 670 but I've only gotten par on it once and that was with about 25 feet to go on the putt. My real drive and approach left me short and left but the practice drive with the C-TD followed up with a second C-TD throw from that spot put me pin high five feet to the right.

sounds like i need to try a prod ctd. i tried the northman for a few weeks but its not for me. i prefer the td over it so much more. the td just feels comfortable to me considering i was throwing roadrunners prior to switching . so the convex feel and flippy flight meshs with me. ive had a hard time trying to replace my lost beat std but i think i finally found a replacement. i put in an older used one i had and its almost as flippy as the one i lost. just gonna take some more beatings and it should b butter all over again.

I brought 3 more new CTDs to test out today...One merlot 175 like I already have, a yellow 175, and an orange 175. The orange and merlot are similar, but the yellow one is about -.5 less stable. I'm really enjoying throwing these. I don't have a PD in the bag right now that is real close to the CTD stability, and I'm finding that the CTD powers down really well. Under 350' it holds any angle of release and fades reliably at the end. Over 350' they flip just a bit and lock onto the line, coming out at the end. In a tailwind it can hang with anything for me. It can also do very tight S turns...I told JimW today that I think I could play just about anywere with the CTD/CPD driver combo...I don't think I've ever thrown two drivers so complimentary and versatile(including the OLS/OLS :oops: ).

The Northman is like a PD/TD hybrid...

...and smartphones are seriously dumbing down DGR. :think:

The STD I first tested was overstable under 350' and straight up to 400'...That disc is just not as fun to throw as the new CTDs that TURN a little out of the box. It now lives up to it's name, and I'll have to edit my review for CDGS where I kind of bashed the TD when it came out for not turning.

yea the one i have is from the cfr run but its dayglow,stiff and poppy top. its definitely more beefy than the orange cfr i hav. very close to pd stability.

i boomed over a canopy of trees today with my td ina head wind. i normally throw it on a huge anny spike line and this time it came out of its turn and panned right to the open pavillion.

jason it was at rivery on 17 . over the top and it went all the way passed the picnic table in that open area haha


btw... stop talkin up the new ctds! ur making me want to buy more!
