Darn disc golf players. Worst ever was being hit by a pollen cloud from a nearby tree. Coated the courts,A few years ago I was playing on a public court, and I was hit by a weed cloud by a small gust of wind that brought it over from a nearby person relaxing on a lazy Sunday afternoon.
The unavailability of the Weed is a problem along with the cost and the fact that you are spending twice as much for string with the Weed, and they areI have a Weed Open Tour and a Bubba 117. The Weed is stiffer with a more open patten making spin very easy. The Bubba is easier to maneuver because its an half an inch shorter and a 117 head compared to a 137. I added a letter grip and some lead to the Bubba and it plays much better. Most people on these boards couldn't play with a Weed, they're not good enough. You have to make the decision to fit your game to the Weed and the Bubba especially if you swing hard. Strung with poly (I use Luxilon 16L) and they both play more controlled than you think. I'm 63 and play mostly doubles now. Problem with Weed is you have to get them from the company and you can't demo.
Stringing is not a problem IMHOThe unavailability of the Weed is a problem along with the cost and the fact that you are spending twice as much for string with the Weed, and they are
difficult to string. However on the plus side I played one set of doubles with Weed and instantly clicked with my ground strokes which were effortlessly powerful.
This is absolutely wrong. Those rackets made controlling the ball far easier. Many different stroke techniques were present because the flexible wood deadened power. Sweet spot was not an issue and most players today could easily find it. The larger modern stiffer racket has made technique paramount and most never master it and can't rally for crap. We unfortunately have made tennis more difficult not easier.I think all the naysayers should go back to 65" sub 40RA 14.5oz wood rackets with fullbed gut. "Modern" tennis has gotten too "easy." Kind of like if MLB went to softball:, big mitts, tube metal bats, shorter base paths and shorter outfields.
