I need to see if i can find a place where i can get footing on a less windy day. There could be a place with decent footing for slow movement but it is windy and i am out of the country until early next week.
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.

Have a white one myself, flattish, slippery pinnacle. Was turn&burn disc, then I tuned it for a while and domed it up a bit, now it's very nice.

Cold and good traction with good albeit over clothed power generation this disc responded better to being thrown harder. Which is weird and nice. It has happened a few times for me that i snap harder spinning the disc better probably on harder throws. And this disc thrived. Very nice with only a few degrees of flipping now going to 360-370'. Likey and i will need to test this out on courses once they melt to be able to see the full potential.

I'm getting pretty close to dropping my PDs for the Rival. Dave you were right, it is faster than a Tbird (penetrates a lower line better) and is slower than a PD (easier to range, more control).

They have replaced my LFs and QJs in one disc.

I have settled on 2 Icons(174g and 165g) and 1 Sparkle(173)

The sparkle has noticeably more high speed turn which is perfect
