I told Jamie that I wouldn't post this but I kinda feel I have to...
Pulled up to Milo yesterday and realized that I had done what most anyone who has ever putted in their backyard has done... stuffed my dg bag into the car without my putters. Jamie had nothing but XDs so I grabbed one of those and borrowed an Aviar-X from Bruce (still have that, Bruce!).
I started with the Aviar-X but figured I had a chance to use a new disc that might just do something for me. It did.
Took some getting used to as it is much more shallow than an Aviar but by the time I got to 18 of the 27, I was clearly feeling it. First shot was a turd. For my second, I threw a forehand roller that put me in the opening to the field - still probably 45 out. Jump putt with the XD, nothing but chains to save the par.
19 of the 27, I had another turd drive and a worse upshot due to poor footing. Was about 85 feet out and decided to jump putt with the XD again. I missed but I didn't miss by much - such that I was becoming convinced.
20 of the 27. Decent drive put me past the am tee and up the hill so I was just about in view of the basket. Threw the Boss and was about 70 feet short and to the left of the basket but with an open look. Jump putted again and it was as if the basket had a giant XD magnet in it. Straight line right at the strong side and it got ALL of it and sunk into the bucket for a 3.
So... I stole Jamie's XD and it is now sitting in the putter pocket where it will share time with the Aviar-X. I am not really sure how this will all play out but it is hard to argue with a disc that flies so straight and holds its line as long as an XD. I just felt that the putts that I would normally come up short on with my Aviar called for an XD putt and I was not short at all due to a better glide.
We'll see. I hope I don't hurt anyone's brain by being pro-Aviar and also pro-XD.
There, Jamie... I admitted it. I MIGHT have POSSIBLY been SLIGHTLY mistaken when I said bad things about your putter. Sorry.
