I think part of it is finding something confortable. Being primarily a roc thrower myself, its a HUGE change going to latitude mids. Going from mostly baseline plastic in rocs to opto/GL plastics for lat64's mids was probably the toughest for me to get used to. I haven't thrown a fugitive or warship yet, and of course the mace could be the answer to this when its release, but I haven't thrown a latitude mid yet that I could throw fairly hard and have it be almost completely straight, good HSS, and low LSS like you can get out of a roc. Pains have the HSS down, but fade more than a roc does. Fuses are capable of similar lines, but you have to really back off and finesse them (although they can, with the right lines, handle a bit of power too). I've only thrown one core, but it didn't really have it either, but was probably the closest.

I asked what are his thoughts about driving with putters mentioning his 400' putter drives with Aviars when he took two doubles open world titles in 1993 &4 and he replied among other things that these days he teaches people to use mids. One would think that in that case mids should be the center piece of throwing and as such Latitude should make the best mids around to fulfill that ends to a means in the best possible way.
The Mace sounds good but not at all like a perfect line laser from initial third hand info. if it is a Wasp with more glide it is way too LSS even though there is HSS. The only way to get a straight line from a disc like that is to put immense power into it or throw it so low that it touches the ground before the fade starts and that leads to a skip. Probably a huge left finishing one so again in a tight hole the disc would be in the rough if the distance is too long to get to the green.
To answer another post What Dave thinks about plus configuration might not be what he is allowed to say out loud. He switched from a company making pretty radically slanted rims to one making mostly minor slants that slip out way more rarely. Slants anyway. So maybe he is not bothered too much by them in his own game. Which might be different from an opinion about the use of slants for all disc golfers.

Even his old Innova bag had the same ratio of drivers to non drivers and he listed the Roc as an approach disc. I think his style of play was to almost always throw a driver. He did use the Eagle like scalpel.
Parks wrote:It was just a B-tier where he had zero chance of not taking first so he was pretty relaxed and not in super competition mode. I don't think he got my sense of humor though. I was just fucking around with him on a 500' hole with water on the right, saying "last year Avery laid up safe about 450' on the left, and he throws longer than you right?" And he gets all fired up saying he's gonna deuce it before the tournament is over (it was three rounds on the same course) and throws a roller 60 feet past it into some bushes. I can't remember if he made the putt or not, but I thought it was pretty funny.
