Replacing a PRO TL

Postby money 21 » Wed May 22, 2013 10:08 pm

I have resently switch to throw 150 drivers. I had a 150 pro TL in the closet that i am not sure i had ever thrown so i put it in the bag and have been using it for a couple weeks now. I love the flight of the disc. the problem is the pro tl is oop and finding a replacement will be hard to find. any advise for a 150 class disc with similar flight to a pro tl.

The disc is in 8/10 shape and i throw it between 325'-350' hyzer flip to straight and flat for a gentle turn.

Have you considered a lighter (relatively) river in the 160's. It will glide as well if not better and hold a tighter line.

thanks for the advice. how would a champ Eagle-L compare? the local shop has a couple but they are huk lab stamped so i haven't felt like dropping that kind of cash.

I threw a 150 Pro TL a long time ago. What flight path does yours take?

Depending on the answer to that question, a 150 JLS or PLS in appropriate plastic may be similar (and, um, I happen to know where you could get a good deal . . .). I found the 150 Champ Eagle-L shorter and harder-fading, but I have never meshed Eagles (L or X versions).

Sounds like a JLS. I suggest trying a 150 JLS in Q, S, or maybe M to see if it gives the flight you like. Another option is to beat up some 150 DX Teebirds, although they don't always come back.

Good luck
