I love PD's as it has the right range that I'm looking for in a Headwind Driver,just easy to control for me. I forehand and backhand mine a lot.
I was thinking that the c-line PD could bump the FL for a headwind driver, but I also have an s-line and p-line. The p is understable out of the box but the s is reasonably stable. How well will these hold up over time and how much wind can I expect them to handle?
Saturday, hole 18 at Clay Park, fluctuating wind that's picking up a bit. The wind appears calm for a bit, so I throw my go-to Lucid Escape, forehand. As it leaves my hand, a big gust of headwind comes up and starts turning it, hard left. Very hard left (RHFH). It ends up in a swamp. I'm talking more than knee-deep muck, practically ruined my day type of swamp. Next time I play that course, I'm throwing the FL regardless of the wind. However there is an OB ditch running perpendicular to the fairway that I need to make across. The Escape usually carries just safely past the ditch, but I'm not sure the FL would. (My XXX would definitely be short). So a slightly longer disc that would be guaranteed not to turn would be cool to carry across that ditch safely and avoid the swamp.
