It was lightly raining most of the morning but my son and I headed out in the afternoon for a eighteen hole round at our favorite disc golf course. The conditions were pretty wet and cold and it was a grey sky day but it was not raining.
I tested out the new Sword disc for the first time and it flew great. It is actually more stable than the one that I lost, probably because it is brand new. It sticks pretty well on whatever angle that you release it on.
I ended up throwing it at times I would have been better off throwing other discs. It handles a variety of different power throws well. I even threw it on hole fifteen where I lost the disc that my new one replaced.
Maybe I should be more careful with a brand new disc but it worked out okay. I was being extra careful with it and did not put it in the river but it faded in early not getting as close to the basket as I would like. There is definitly a risk reward issue on this basket where if you throw out wide towards the river you can get closer to the basket so long as the disc does not turn left from too much power on a right hand forehand throw.
Here's a picture of all the discs that I normally bag:
The twenty one discs on the floor are what I've been carrying recently. I'd like to trim down to eighteen or nineteen in the bag. I recently found or purchased three discs and the bag gets a bit heavy. I have a lot of spare discs on the shelf too.
I guess I'm starting to become a bit of a collector because many of these discs hold some value for me even though I don't currently throw them. Some are just way too understable for me to enjoy throwing any more. Lots of them do come in handy depending on the weather and the wind conditions, so I do end up switching things in and out of what I carry.
My orchids are getting ready to flower again. Just a few days ago I noticed the first shoots coming up. It could be a few weeks before I see any flowers though.
