Help me branch out

Postby PMantle » Wed Feb 27, 2013 1:37 pm

I need nothing, but simply like buying discs. My bag is dominated by Discraft, Innova and Millennium. I see lots of praise for other manufacturers, but those are not available here locally. I'll post my main discs, and would like suggestions from other companies for competition.

Destroyers/Scorpius
Archon
Beast/Archangel

Tracker/Teebird/TL

Sentinel/Buzzz/Stratus

Magnet/Ion/Wedge

Will be making a birthday order soon. Thanks for suggestions.

Gold Line River from Latitude 64 and Innova Star Coyote.
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.

What does the River replace?

Not looking to add more Innova right now other than maybe a Tern.

The River would probably replace the TL.

Destroyers/Scorpius/Archon - I'm gonna say Sword

Beast/Archangel - Northman

Tracker/Teebird/TL - Saint/River

Sentinel/Buzzz/Stratus - Vector/Fuse/???

Magnet/Ion/Wedge - I wouldn't really mess with these

Really thinking about doing that Lat/West misprint deal at Dynamic discs. This could give me ideas on what to ask for.

What about the Flow?

Flows vary hugely and flatter ones usually have a low PLH and flip a lot and fade a hair less than domey high PLH ones (probably easiest to find in Opto). Domey flows are better straighter Wraiths and Swords are better straighter Destroyers. Rivers could replace Leos and TLs being longer than both though and thus a little harder to range. Coyote is like a lower power requirement slower shorter River thus better at long mid distances than Buzzes and a great compliment to Z Buzzes being more understable. Meaning flat no flip out to say 270'-300' (depending on air pressure those results are for sea level see air is not air go throw in the mountains and use the same disc at sea level there is even a current thread about that and you could watch the 2003 worlds DVD played in the mountains especially Joe Mela interview -there's a reason why distance competitions and records are usually made at high altitude) flipping some beyond that. Northman is slower and shorter than the Beast more like Valk.

I'm pretty sure that the Coyote is a better disc than the Tern and at least it is more suited to lower powered players.
