Im auditioning Trespass for that spot. Longer but still controllable and doesnt require a cannon arm. Many other speed 12 discs need more arm speed that I can muster.

If it works out my bag will be set up like this:

Distance Driver: Trespass
Stable Control Driver: PD
Moderately Overstable: PD
Understable: Leopard
Overstable: Predator (I might replace it with a OS PD)
Stable Mid: Aftershock
Understable Mid: Comet
Putter: Pure

I should be able to cover most my lines with this setup.

Oh yeah, another thing why I enjoy the Trespass. Although the rim is wider than PD, its not too wide (speed 13 i cannot grip too well because of that), and it is a quite shallow rim. I can get a comfortable tight grip on it. 171g pink Lucid is where its at. (168g Biofuzion also bombs when hit right, but is has more danger of turning too much)

edit. sorry about preaching another disc in the church of the holy redeemer of the latter days of power driver freak! :oops:

Eh, it's a complementing disc, not a replacement. =)

Digging up what used to be a hot thread.

Can anyone tell me how a seasoned or beat P PD (soft blend) would compare with a TD?

Shorter flips more (unless you compare to a gummy C TD) and fades more.
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.

PD tends to have more angular/abrupt turns and fades, whereas the TD is a smoother turning flyer. Pd will likely fight back more than the TD at the end of it's flight as well.

I need to get my hands on a gummy non-plus C TD. Anyone know if there's a few floating around?

Why they flip like hell very quikly very angularly unlike stiff s tds. S tds vary from straight to slightly softly and slowly turning. I imagine the majority is straight.

Good to know. My shop had some softer C TD's with low PLH, so I avoided those. I picked up a pink gummy non-plus x-out C TD with minimal dome and moderate PLH. It may be just what I'm looking for to compliment straight PD's.

I've been reading a bunch of this thread and I'm going to be sticking the PD's back in the bag again.

I've been using my worn in Predators for this slot,but me thinks the PD's and Predators can get along again.

Thanks Timko for getting me to want to throw these again and to the other people who posted of course. :D

yay the gospel is back! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

ps. in the interest of making a relevant post, I just saw my old posts above about the Trespass. UPDATE: the autidions are over, Trespass is not in the bag. Despite of what I wrote there about a comfortable grip, I did experience too frequent early slips and that is the main reason I was not able to trust them enough. PDs are still the main driver, I only have a P-PD2 (beat but quite stable, long), S-DD (overstable, long wind disc) and ES-DD2 (max D) faster/longer than the PD in the bag.

I carry 4 still. A new P PD, a beat S PD, a new S PD, and a new CFR C PD.

Does anybody know if it's true that the QOLF and the PD both use a Firebird bottom?

Truth, especially on the internet, is relative. I can tell you in my experience/recollection the OLF and PD feel very similar in the hand, and the OLF has slightly more turn. So, for example, if you think a C-PD is slightly too beefy but want Champion plastic, try a QOLF. If, on the other hand, you like the flight of QOLF but prefer Star plastic, try a (non +) S-PD.

Oh wait, now I'm remembering there are different run numbers of OLFs and I can't remember which one I tried before selling them off and sticking with my PDs.
