Absolutely totally new, champion plastic, somewhere near 170g.
I guess I left it Tuesday somewhere on the south side near hole #2 or #3.
Grrrr.

I was out there Wednesday morning and saw nothing. There was a group behind me that may have included Eric Vinet (he golfs on Wednesdays) and maybe they saw it.

Good luck.

I threw it only half a dozen times. I like it.

Did not really explore the full envelope, but one throw which works very welll for me with Roadrunner is:

Throw low, flat, lots of spin and not too much arm speed, in calm or downwind situations. It just goes dead straight forever. Blew past #9 longs at Brampton, worked very well on #16 here. I would throw it where a straight Roc shot was required, but is borderline/out of my Roc range.

Not sure whether it is good for anything else, my overall feel is that it is like a straighter Sidewinder.

I love this disc (almost as much as the Leafs). It has replaced my early run Sidewinders as a long straight / anhyzer driver. This thing is fast and understable, yet still has a slight left finish (-4 turn and +2 fade).

I used it a lot on hole #8 at White Spruce. During the week prior to the Breezy Treez I was parking my drives 20-25’ from the longs. If the measurements are correct that is a 400’ anhyzer drive. It didn’t work so well come tourney time but I think that was more to with operator error. Also gives me a great run at #6 long.

As Euro mentioned if you take some arm off it and throw it low it will hold a straight line and its great for tunnel shots (i.e. Mando at the EVC).

I keep 2 in the bag (168 and 175) and dont see them coming out unless its my turn on the tee pad!

Got it ET I guess it was too new to put your name on. It was as if you missed right on yellow # 11.

Great! I am really relieved. Are you coming for tuesday nights singles?

It must have my e-mail on the inner lip. I did not have thick black sharpie, just a thin red one, so it might be too difficult to see, perhaps even smeared.

I won't be at JCP on Tuesday (still working in Kingston till the 31st). I could just leave it out side at my place so you could get it or you could suggest something else.

I picked up the light blue Roadrunner from Rod's place last night.

Euro - I'll have it for you tonight at League. If you bring a working sharpie to mark your name on it clearly, you'll get it back. Your name is so faded on the disc, it's almost invisible.

If you have no Sharpie, it's getting tossed back in to the depths of Mojo until another time, lest you lose it again! being evil

(Someone's got to save the absent minded professor from himself!) Cool
