you gotta have light plastic at my altitude. This blizzard stuff is really changing how you can play golf up here. I've got a 142 Blizzard Boss that is unbelievable... flys like a good wraith does in Iowa.

I have a 168 Destroyer and it feels like a brick to me. Definitely going lighter and lighter.

I throw sidearm, so I prefer a 175 destroyer!

166-169 because they come out of my hand faster and fly further than max weight discs.

Mainly upper weights, but like everyone else that is older, getting lighter.

Putters/mids and fairway drivers max.

High speed I've been in the 165-169 range. Heavy OS for strong wind though. Lighter OS's are the shit

I heard you say this before at the beginning of the season and I agree 100%, I carry 2 OS...1 max weight (at the bottom of Graceland pond now) and a lightweight 166-168ish OS that I would seriously throw for every shot if it didn't finish it's hyzer so violently.....

Also, nice running into you at Adventure Bay Sunday lol...

I like to keep drivers in 175, and 169. 175 tends to be more stable, and 169 tends to have more glide.
