It removes the poison oak oil from your skin. It's a must have. Most of the courses around here or up north. Have tons of poison oak. I don't play without it.

Nope, had no idea "groovy" came from that. Your friend is right. Oregon is breathtaking at times and the people are very cool. My girlfriend and I were going to move up there, we even had an agent to go look at homes (that's how close we were). So it's the middle of summer and it's overcast with some drizzle. As we go to meet her. She pops out of her car and in a nice happy tone, shouts, "What a gorgious day!" So, there is a reason why it's so beautifull....it's the rain! A LOT of rain. like 9 to 10 month of it. Suffice to say, we just like to visit the area now lol! You should go visit your friend up there though. The courses are tough, but fun. Bring plenty of Technu though!
Didn't get to play Milo. It's just in that point of travel were you just want to get to were you are going.

Hey I'm back!
Man, if you ever decide to plan a disc golf junket. Oregon and Washington have to be the first two states on your list! The courses are epic! Plus there are a bunch of them.
I'll ship those discs off in the next few days. Once I get back into my groove, or is it a rut?

Shhhhwoooo. Man I thought next thing you know. He'll be throwing nothing but Discraft! Not that that's a bad thing lol! Never could understand the one brand loyalty. Unless of course, they are signing your paychecks.

OK, who are you and what have you done with Brandon! Give up a Roc for a Meteor. Wow! lol. Ya, I played around with it, but nothing serious. Even though I'm flirting with the idea of trying the Shockwave and Spider. I'm really trying to just leave my bag alone for more than a week :-/ We'll see how long it lasts.......

I don't know of anyone looking for a first run Z Flash. I love Flashes but throw the most overstable runs, including the current run which is really good.

Too much stuff! As it stands today...
Drivers: Nuke, Champ Katana, Star Teerex, Night shift Orc (too bad they will only be CFR's), CE Valk, Star Sidewinder ( Of all the discs I have. This one would make me cry if I lost it. It's uber flat), Gold Line Vision.
Fairway drivers (too me): 150 class Flick, CE Firebird, Eagle, Teebird and TL, Pro Line Leopard.
Mids: Z Drone (a must for windy places),Champ Gator (only disc that has NEVER left my bag) Z Wasp, Champ Roc, Flat top Z Buzzz, HD Hawk, and a CE Classic Roc.
Mind you, I only carry all of them on my home course. The wind can be brutal and change direction on you at any time. I'm also thinking of trying a Shockwave and Spider. In place of my Roc and Buzzz. I'm just not a fan of large diameter discs, but if it isn't broke....Oh well.
I also picked out a few discs to send your way. I'll send them off when I get back from Washington.

You are the best disc golf dad in the world, especially because you're allowing your kids to let it be what will be, instead of insisting they "do it right." Believe it or not, I find your story inspiring (I'm a motivational speaker and am always on the lookout for anything heartwarming). You did it, pal!

Hey Brandon, Have you ever tried a Flick? It's a pretty overstable disc. So much so, that I use a 150 class. I've thrown it flat into an approx 20+ headwind and it didn't even flinch. Flew flat for a few hundered feet, then hyzered out hard. It's also great for spike hyzers and thumbers. It's a 2.5 on Discrafts chart and it weighs 166g. If you want to give it a try let me know and I'll throwit in with the Halo. Also IMO there is no way this disc will flatten out or turn over on you.


P.S. You'll need to e-mail me your mailing info again.

Me again!
I just remembered I might have a XXX from Lat. 64. It's not as long as the Blitz, but just as stable. My disc room is a mess at this time. Painting a bedroom, so the disc room looks like a scene from that show Horders!
If I still have it, I'll ship it with the Halo.

I know I've been raving about the Lat 64 stuff, but I gave a couple Opto Blitz's to Sean Johnson (he's on this site) and he loves them. He said they are his new hyzer/thumber discs. They took the place of his Firebirds, due to the extra distance and their stability (more stable than the Firebird!). I do have some CE Firebirds, but I really can't part with those. I do have a Discraft XTRA and Extreme. Both are 2.0 or 2.5. I can't throw either, because they are so overstable. I might be willing to part with them, but I'd have to think it over. Since they stopped making them and are starting to become popular. I would put money on the fact there would be know worries about any of these discs turning over or going flat on you.

Well most people say it's like a Destroyer on roids. I found it to be a bit more overstable and about 15' longer than the Destroyer, but that only happened for me a few times. Most of the time it just hyzered out hard for me. Some of the bigger arms I play with love them. I'm finding that most of their discs are very thrower friendly. Like the Striker and Vision (for me). Ooohh don't get me started on the Striker! IMO one of the best discs made over the past few years. Too bad it's a tweener disc. As one person said "If the Valk and the Teebird had a baby. This disc would be the results" lol!!
So I still have the Halo's. I have a 164g flat top that is an overstable pig! The others are 170g and are not as overstable. Just let me know which one you would like.
At 11:40am on April 14, 2010, Rescue said…
It's Opto. I already gave away the Gold Line ones. If I had to choose, the Opto would be my first pick. However the Gold is bullet proof.
At 9:57pm on April 13, 2010, Rescue said…
So, I'm just curious. Did you give up on the Vision? If so, hope you give it to a good home :) I gave up on the Halo. It's just to much disc for me. Flies like a Destroyer, my a$$.
If you want to try one just let me know.

ha! i didnt see that in my email anywhere, but cool!

Ya, I keep both the Sidewinder and Vision in my bag. The thing is, I got very lucky and found a flat top Sidewinder. It's much more overstable than a standard one. So the two compliment each other.
As for the "wide rimmed" discs of the future! There are two things that I like about them. One, is I seem to be able to throw my Orc, Valk, and the like. A lot better! Two, I've put the Groove back in my bag. It's like the love child of the Katana and Boss. It was kind of funny. I watched the Boss and Nuke hyzer out, then I watched the Katana turn over. I throw the Groove...Wow! right down the middle of the field, with just a slight hyzer at the end. Hmmph.....go figure.
Well, take care.
At 2:04pm on March 22, 2010, Rescue said…
Thanks for the heads up, but I have to stop buying discs! Pretty soon I'm going to be on that show "Hoarders". I swear I must have a few hundred discs. Muuuust..........stop..
At 12:06am on March 19, 2010, Rescue said…
Cool, I'm glad you like them or at least the Nuke. I'm suprised you're not getting more "D" from the Vision. I parked it under the basket on #8 at Golden Gate Park with it today. With my Sidewinder, I was always looking at a 20 to 25' putt. It's possible, that since I can hyzer flip both of those discs and get a nice helix out of them. Were as for you, it sounds like they are primarily roller or turnover discs for you. I might ring them out a little further?
I tell ya, I'm going to give the Nuke another month before I pass judgement. I just have to be to perfect to get it to go. Since it's on the fringe of my power. It either goes forever or it just hyzers out, but I had a feeling that might be the case. Seems like the "11" speed discs is about my limit. Damn it! lol!!

lol! Are humor may be twisted and dark, but I couldn't bring myself to post a true scene picture. Mind you some have, but I couldn't do that to a patient. I use the "name" Rescue, because it's my nickname at the department. I've had others, but I figured I'd keep it PG :)~
Good luck with your writing. Remember....Never give up!
