I don't really like it, but it makes some situations much more manageable. I just can't believe how slow it flies. It's rim is visibly wider than the Flow's, but the Flow flies much faster. I'm excited to get the PD2 and have a stable disc that is actually as fast as my Flow.

I'm carrying around a lot of discs these days for practice/seasoning...

Ions:
175 seasoned red proto medium (flippiest Ion)
175 milky/flesh medium Ion (main putter)
175 milky white soft Ion (longest Ion, better for hard hyzers/hard anhyzers)
175 hotstamped red medium (high shouldered, most HSS Ion)

175 ESP Zone (pink Z/ESP blend, short overstable utility disc)

177 GL Fuse (turnover/finesse mid)

Buzzzes:
177 seasoned green 2fr Buzzz (finesse Buzzz)
177 less seasoned blue 2fr Buzzz (primary mid)
177 opaque green Z Buzzz (overstable Buzzz)

JLSs:
175 yellow MJLS (breaking in, finesse/turnover fwy driver)
174 red QJLS (stable fairway driver, longer Buzzz)

PDs
175 stiff red P-PD (flippy PD)
175 seasoned red S-PD (finesse/straight PD)
174 yellow S-PD (primary PD, holds line, turns slightly at high speeds)
175 white S-PD (overstable S-PD)
174 orange C-PD (seasoned, straight with hard fade, shorter than other PDs, basically overstable fwy driver)
174 orange C-PD (new and wicked overstable)

Flows:
175 swirly silver GL Flow (slightly understable, very straight from a hyzer flip, holds very long annies, longest disc in bag)
175 pink Opto Flow (more stable than GL, especially LSS, better for power shots and hyzers)

175 yellow production champ Xcal (just something more stable than my Flows for wind/FH/other overstable stuff, does job OK but soon to be replaced by C/P PD2).

I haven't updated this in a while, but I've got a tourney next weekend and it's nice to keep a record of what I used. I haven't changed anything for some time in terms of molds.

I don't usually carry all of these at once, but this is my entire quiver that I select from based on course and conditions:

2x 175 Proto medium Ions--putting/approaching/driving...each of these discs has an ace, one is more beat, short range Comets
1x new run 174 Soft Ion--approaching/driving...my most LSS Ion, so great for flex shots, annies that pull out, and spike hyzers
1x 175 medium Ion--approaching/driving...newer HSS run, holds line in wind better than soft, but fades less in all conditions
1x 167 FR Ion--trick shots, anhyzer approaches, touch putts

1x 177 GL Fuse--understable midrange...seasoned and nicely flippy
1x 177 2FR Buzzz--straight midrange...seasoned, turns slightly and holds
1x 178 FR Vector--overstable midrange...overstable for hyzers, flex shots, and Buzzz-type lines into the wind

1x 175 MJLS--understable/straight fwy driver...newish and versatile for touch shots and anhyzers
2x 174 CFR CPD--overstable fwy drivers...beat and new for everyday overstable and windy day overstable, glideless and fwy range
2x PPDs, 174 & 172--understable/straight mid-distance drivers...one is super beat and the other is newish and very straight(DGR stiff PINK)
2x 175 SPDs (red champystar/yellow chapystar)--S-turn/straight mid-distance drivers...red one is beat and great for all line shaping, yellow one is more HSS and very straight overall like slightly beat TB
1x 175 CPD+--overstable mid-distance driver...new and straight out of the hand with a strong fade and nice glide, hyzers/flex shots/headwind D

1x 175 GL Flow--understable/straight distance driver...getting seasoned, holds lines with a very late and modest fade, my longest disc
1x 175 Opto Flow--stable distance driver...versatile and great for hyzers, flex shots, and holds steeper anhyzers than GL, holds up well in mild to moderate winds
1x 175 CPD2--overstable distance driver...production run, faster version of production CPD, nicely overstable with good glide, turns a little in strong headwinds
1x175 CFR CPD2--seriously overstable distance driver...faster version of CFR CPD, for wind and strong skip shots

I've also got backups of everything and various other versions of the molds in my bag for testing/practice.

I forgot to mention my 174 QJLS which is basically a shorter and more stable version of my MJLS.

You should read his PMs to me...He is delusional and sees himself as the "consumer advocate for the disc golf community"(his words) playing out some adversarial role against me, the "mouthpiece of the disc golf business" (his words). Despite my civility and open dialogue with him he accuses me of lying about my sponsorship and of receiving some kind of secret compensation for my disc golf web presence. Funny considering I haven't even been able to scrounge up the funds for an entry fee this year...You'd think my sponsors would be taking care of me if I had some secret deal. :lol:

That is pretty funny. Please don't stop posting your opinion on discs as I feel we are similar and I appreciate your input as I can't afford to try out everything.

lol..."delusional?"

didnt you go on and on about how useless overstable mids are until you picked up MVP as a sponsor and they started producing the vector, which you continue to push incredibly hard? :roll: i get sick of decent players that preach the gospel of how much they know...and then completely back track when they pick up a sponsorship that deals largely in the product the player is pushing, but had formerly dismissed entirely.

have some fucking integrity.

Don't worry I'm not too discouraged. Though I must admit I've never just had someone come out of the woodwork just to be a douchebag to me online before. I just talk about discs...I don't disrespect people. Oh well, I guess just have to accept that not everyone is rational.

i appreciate discspeeds disc reviews as well.

but you really should take those reviews with a grain of salt when hes pushing one of his sponsors molds over the competition.
