The event is at a mountainous area so roll aways are a real risk like losing discs. Maybe more backup at the hotel is a good idea? Unless an X Pred is totally new a Z Pred would fare better in higher winds and resist flipping over. I don't know the altitude though. Z may be too overstable if at higher altitudes. Weight differences may be a good idea for different molds if you're not used to throwing in mountains (altitude). Hope at least one of those Rocs is beat so that you can anny with it even at altitude.

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.

Thanks for the feedback, I hadn't realised that it was at altitude.
All the multiple molds have variety in weight/beatness.

Are you playing the event JR?

Yea, it's a ski slope in winter iirc. Big open holes and elevation suit my game, I'm actually more worried about the second course, it looks tighter than a nuns chuff. Hole 15 scares the bejeezus out of me!

Course 1 - Soehnstetten
Course 2 - Brenzpark

hehe, if I can recall correctly the mandos are the bridge pillars for the bridge...I saw a picture of it somewhere...Ill see if I can find it somewhere.

I wish they would do pictures of each hole or a video run through, so you at least have some idea what the course is going to be like

8 & 16 seem to have some shady mando's out in the water :?

Better bring lots of backup discs

Unfortunately I won't be there. If I were you I'd find out the exact elevation. The organizers should know it.

For sure, with that much water in play I'll either be bringing plenty of spares, or taking out a new mortgage!

Luckily I'm there from the Monday so I'll get a good look at both courses before the event
