I don't know why you didn't just pick up an opto pure.

Plenty of height difference>more drag on the Ridge and the flat top of the Ridge means low glide. Common knowledge around here. To help you save money in the future you might wanna rad more here because there are plenty of knowledgeable people here and you can always ask.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

JR, he actually created a thread asking for a CCR replacement and ignored the advice in it.

Quite a bargain-basement find this weekend. $10 for the set!

Anyone still throwing Soles? They have proven tough to find online in my color/weight preferences, but I'm looking forward to trying them out. Were people just excited for a couple of weeks, or are people out there still liking them? I mean, now that everyone agrees the Opto Pure is the best thing to ever happen to disc golf... :roll:

Sole is my go to driving putter in cold and wet conditions. Grip wise Opto Pure is nicer for my small fingers and medium hand and arm injury. Less finger sticking possibilities for the thinner disc but i've not had sticking issues with the Sole lately. The Sole ain't the longest putter out there but it is straight. Slowness can help in not bouncing as far as other putters and the material bends naturally when hitting obstacles so it won't ricochet off as far as most discs would.

I swear the Trak has the same flight as a TL but with more HSS. It's seriously an awesome disc. Fuck the Ascent, Trak all the way. 400' shot on a frozen rope with the Trak: Not a problem.

In wet conditions for the grip. Not great in the wind and fading hard on powered down throws or with altitude.
