I love loyalty...dont we all. Its the reason the dog is the most common pet,its the reason you tolerate that friend who knows exactly what not to say.Loyalty can be a wonderful and very beneficial quality...it can also be self depricating. This self destructive loyalty reers its ugly head in the form of almost religous preferance for brands of the plastic we throw.How many times have we seen it in the blogs...on the courses...on porta johns everywhere! People pointing out the inherent inadequacies of this brand..the absolute junkosity of that brand..it is rediculous. For this reason I think we owe it to ourselves as a community of likeminded recreationalists to examine where we as consumers have been duped into thinking that there is only one brand that we can throw.( of course if youre one of the fortunate people who are sponsored disregard everything my poor recreational @#$% is blogging) I use to throw only innova plastic..any other brand and that brands owners seemed silly. Then my girl got the bug and purchased,much to my groaning, a discraft xs in z plastic. This disc changed it all for me. not only was its distance and flights comparable to my beloved Valkyrie, it could also take the direct gunfire sounding tree hits of that wretched oak off to the right on the third tee. After that ive been ape shit to try new stuff. Still drive my Valkyrie 90% of the time but there are other choices for the different situations we all invarriably find ourselves in. As another example,me and Karen recently purchased a quest at oddesy ultra long range driver. We got them for the sole purpose of having a floater. We threw them and oh my God! These things are simply amazing. They dont have the typical profile that says,"i can fly for days",but they do. The same can be said for my mid range line up..2 discraft 1 innova 1 gateway. Putters..ooops. Banger gt in D plasitc. I guess this is all of minor importance considering the larger issues facing our world, but if i read another article pointing out my lack of brains and general maleness because i dont throw or like a rock I will puke. Thanks for reading and replies would be appreciated> Spread the love bothers and sisters...may your mixed bags yield many aces.
