Simple. One mold.

More people should do this...

The Orc/Starfire is another combination that will cover the entire gamut (especially if they made a Pro Orc still which bombed deep).

Also, you can add the Firebird for super over stability because these discs share the same wing so the feel will be the same in the grip.

The Wraith/TREX/Max is the combo I use. They feel identical in the hand.

For fairway drivers the TL/Eagle/TB/Whippet all have the same grip.

I find that my QMS & SMS perform the same. It took the SMS a bit longer to get broken in, but now they fly the same. Are you finding this to be true too?

I'd recommend something slower for your control driver. For a vast majority of players (i.e. people who aren't already really good pros) a faster driver that works as a distance driver isn't a good choice for a control driver. If you're stuck on Millennium I'd pick up a JLS or two and compare them to your OLF's for your control driver duty. I think you'll find they're quite a bit easier to control.

Absolutely. My 168 QJLS gets me about 300' with a slight S. Very smooth. It's just so straight I can always count on it.

I've tried the Fairway LSs and I flip them to easily. That is why I just 70% my Light weight for control. Or I just use my EXPs for control. I'm waiting for the two new faders from Millennium to come out. As far as the QMS and the SMS are concerned, yes they fly the same. But I primarily use them as short range drivers. The MMSs are my approach discs.

A friend of mine gave me the nick name. My first name is Terry, and he started out calling me "T" which lead to T-Bone.

I too got tagged T-Bone from my boss and co-workers. I'm also a Terry. I'll swim across the lake and we'll throw a few holes.

Nice and simple. I like it. I recently picked up a SOLF and I love it. The thing is money and is pushing my Wraith for max D.

How does using a 150 OLF work for the understable driver? How much D can you get out of it? I feel like I would end up just turning it over into the ground.

The I50g is awesome, I throw it flat and a little high and I've been able to get it farther than my other discs. It raises up and slowly annies out to the right and as it slows down it seem to just grab about 3 to 5 ft of air along the ground and just float. I parked it the other day on a 398 ft hole. Love It. The wind was about 10 mph and behind me.
