Went out for some sidearm field practice this morning followed by 9 holes (sidearm only).
I got some solid S-curves out of the 168 Champ Leo, out to somewhere around 225'. I don't remember ever really turning it over. On the course I threw this off every tee, trying to shape good lines. Most of these drives were decent. The most troubling were two tee shots tht have an OOB on the right of the fairway and slightly downhill. Both of these drives flew great but as they faded, despite landing in-bounds, they skipped OOB. How can I throw these shots FH but limit the fade, even with the Leo? With more power/snap I assume the fade should decrease with this disc?
The 168 Champ Valk is flying straight with a harder fade, as expected. I threw this a couple times on the field but didn't use it in the round.
The 175 Champ Wraith obviously is too fast for me and dives hard right. I threw this once of the field for fun, then put it away (where it will stay for some time to come).
Shots from the fairway and longer approach hits with the 173 Z Buzzz SS were mixed. I thought I had lots of confidence in this disc but I can't yet always get it to do what I want at varying distances. More field practice at offering distances, throwing hyzer/anhyzer/straight is in order.
My putting game was pretty awesome (for me). Sank a 30-footer on the last basket to beat my buddy by 1 stroke. Shots at 15 ft or less are going in at least 75% of the time <knock on wood>. I'm loving the Soft X APX. Had a good from-the-bushes sidearm soft floatey hyzer chip shot that landed under the pin with the APX also.
Overall I bogied all 9 holes. Horray consistency! My previous best on the same 9 is 6-over, but the last few BH rounds were 12-over, with some trip-bogies. So I like the direction I'm headed with the FH. Might only play once more this week since I'm out of town this weekend.
Should I stick with the Leopard and shape those lines, or look at replacing the Leo for now with 2 other discs (one more understable, one more oberstable)? The sporting goods store closeby has the Avenger SS in D and Z, they have the XL in a couple plastics, as well as Pred, Stalker, Flick.
