Am I the only one seeing a slight similarity to a predator?

I think it is just you. I can throw my teerex a lot farther than my predator. My predator also has a more predicable flight path. The teerex sometimes goes real straight for a long way, sometimes kinda straight for a long way. Predator always goes where I want it. Well close to where I want it to go.

I tried throwing a Flick for the first time this weekend, it is hands down the fastest disc I have thrown yet...By the sounds of it a teerex may be closer to a Flick than it is a predator

I've only thrown it a handful of times. It seemed to mirror my z pred. Are you guys finding it unpredictable? It seemed very fast and overstable to me, always finishing left. I haven't tried turning it over yet. I'm actually waiting for a tattoo to heal, so I may be out for a couple of weeks.

Ouch...

You ever wonder how those chicks wear pants after they get one of those "tramp stamps" or "directional arrows" tattoed above the crack of their ass?

They don't.....

I have spent more time wondering: if they didn't have the "easy" markings, how would I know who to date?

Mine is across my upper back, shoulder blade to shoulder blade, where my quadshocks usually sit.....

Yes, genius, am I....

Now I have to walk around with discs in my hand.

A buddy gave me a flick over the weekend, and it has the shallowest rim I've ever felt. I felt like I was gripping a knife with that thing.

Give that thing a few throws. It takes a little while to get used to the shallow rim, but this disc is the most awesome overstable driver out there. It is the one disc I wish I had more of.

When I got my back tat I had to take two days off is all, my shirt would just rub it and the throwing motion backhand streatched the skin between my shoulder blades. Mabey you just need to take a week or two off the quad shocks, and travel light.

and about the shallow rim for the flick, thats why its in my bag, its the most comfortable disc to grip for thumbers, tommys, grenades, upside down shots and the occasional forhand or hyzers I need alot of penetration. (not to mention if the ground is even remotely soft, the flick hits and dosnt bounce/roll much.

I wouldnt compare it much to a teerex though, the flick is a bit faster, and if you have the power, its less high speed overstable. I do agree they fly the same when it comes to straight line with fade somewhere between 65%-90% through the flight, If only

oh and terry: not many people loose flicks huh ;-) , mabey thats saying something.

Actually, I'm playing with about 3 discs that I carry in my hand. A buzz, cyclone, and alternate a super fast disc. Yesterday, I threw my esp avenger; if I can get out today, I want to try my sirious orion lf that hasn't been thrown yet.

Part of my problem is that it is not complete yet (the tat) and requires further sessions. I got the left side done, just need the right and the middle now. Why must my back be so big?!? Damn you McDonalds!

If I don't get any work done on it today, I'll get out and throw some.
