Yeah I figured & when I saw someone streaking at a distance, I knew it was you. lol I hate the Valks, especially the Pro Valks. I kept trying them again every once in a while & they're pretty much useless for me. Used to have Champ Valk in my bag though, but not anymore.

I thought you had me too, but Russ added my score wrong. I did not notice until I posted the score here. Got screwed on the tag thing.

Thanks. It's always a blast & great fun. Will be a lot of fun for me seeing all of my old buddies back in Ohio where I've played majority of my tourneys at the past 7 years. It's tough for the Pro's to repeat winning the BHMO back to back since the my buddies who are locals as well tend to get into the finals time to time as well. Then there's some young-guns constantly popping up to give 'em the run for their money. Dion Arlyn will be there & I've never watched him play. He's from Oregon too.

Nope, I've made plans months in advance for the Brent Hambrick Memorial Open in Columbus, OH this weekend. Also visiting my family for a bit in WV along the way. It's one of these major tourneys I'd hate to miss being an A-Tier & National Tour with a chance to watch all the top pro's play in the Final 9!

Wouldn't throw a thumber, I never really get enough elevation out of it like I can with my tomahawk so I usually stick with that. Most of the time I'd use the same discs I'm able to throw my forehand rollers with, like the Crush, Rogue & Roadrunner. The only time I can use a thumber would be on downhill short baskets. I rely on using my pro rhyno mostly because I can throw 'em pretty straight and accurate downhill easily. Also it was much easier without all these leav ... more

I rely on using my pro rhyno mostly because I can throw 'em pretty straight and accurate downhill easily. Also it was much easier without all these leaves during the winter/fall on #6 when I got at least 3-4 birdies parking it. Just been having trouble throwing the same anhyzers with my Mako on that particular basket and #7.

Thanks. I know, but I don't really throw thumbers. I can do tomahawks when it's needed. Used to throw tomahawks off the tee when I first started & haven't really done anything like that since then. I kept hitting that friggin' big tree 3 out of the last 5 times or so that I've played from the long tees on #6..2 of 'em ended up OB. It was safe yesterday & the other 2 were birdies. Will have to come up with a different approach next time...sheesh.

Yeah it is. I use the my Star Boss as my main go to driver for mostly forehands, but I do use it for my backhand throws and forehand rollers as well. I don't recall getting close to that creek at Woodsboro, unless it's past #9's basket? Used to throw Pro Destroyer as my main driver too. I only use it for certain long hyzers nowadays...as long as it's not too windy.

Your drives will get better the more you play, especially if you keep tweaking it and practicing in an open field. You should try throwing a Star/Champion Boss if you haven't yet...may end up liking it.
