so its more of a straight flyer than being a little stable like the challenger?


Yes, it's less stable than a challenger so it flies straighter at slower speeds.

can someone post up a picture of the edge of the rim on a apex, i have a tournement stamp swirl plastic midrange disc and there is no manufacture name on the bottom, i am ussuming it is an apx because the swirl plastic looks just like the swirl apx pictures i have seen, just not the same color as any i have seen.

If it's small and deep like a putter, it's an APX. It kind of looks/feels like the aviar p&a (putt and approach) (not the big bead aviar driver/putter)

ok sweet thanks

Yeah that's probably about right. I started playing in 2002 and a great influence on my game in Ann Arbor was a guy by the name of Gordy Matthews, I think he was a master or pro master so he had a lot of discs in his trunk. One day after playing a round with him he said he had some discs in his trunk he wanted me to try. He gave me this APX and about 5-6 others to replace my beat up junk that I was throwing. I went and played another round with them and got my ace on hole #10 of that round at old Brown Park, talk about instant gratification. Gordy was a great guy.

Had my first ACE with an APX and still have it (of course) but I don't use it anymore. Great disc though.


whoa! . . .that thing is old. Looks like about 2000/2001 judging from the stamp.
Mike, I used to play a lot of rounds with Gordy. He died of brain cancer a few years ago. This photo I have is from around the time frame you knew him.

Yep, that is definately him, he cracked me up! Yes I heard he died from brain cancer, so unfortunate. Well actually I was surprised when I saw a tournament listing for the Gordy Matthews Memorial tournament last year at Rolling Hills. I then learned he passed from suffering brain cancer as the proceeds from that event benifit cancer research. I hope to be able to play in one of his memorial tournaments, it's nice to see disc golf supporting a great cause in his name. Gordy definately had a love and passion for this sport.
