Millenium Astra
 
Millenium Discs don't get talked about much and I am interested in purchasing a few Astra discs hoping they'll become my longest backhand disc. How do they fly for guys who throw Valkyries about 275-300 feet?

Another question, let's say you throw a valk 280 flat, and even if the Astra didn't give much more distance, wouldn't it give you a lot more distance on incline holes because it's faster?

Most of the information of Astra's I gleamed from reviews of the the Archon. I play at sea level and my beat in Orc is my longest disc if I include skip, but on a flat shot my seasoned Valkyrie is my longest disc at about 280ft distance. I am incorporating backhand more into my game , and I am interested in how the Astra flies backhand.


Has anybody felt the M-Colour version of the Astra? what kind of grip or glide does it have compared to Millenium plastic or Q-Astra.


I haven't thrown these plastics so I was thinking of getting 1 of each plastic.

I wouldn't get an Astra if I were you.

Its a good disc, you just wouldn't benefit from it

why is that? too stable/fast? Or too flippy in the wind compared to valkyrie?

well if you do want one, I've got this purdy blue Q astra in my sale thread (will ship for $10 obo).

I got my brother an M-Color Astra for this past Christmas. I can't really remark much on the way it flies, except to say that he seems to use it well. Neither him nor I are very good. I can say that the print on it looks really cool but is super slippery.

Astra = Archon

I throw just maybe 10' further then you and I can say that the Q Astra isn't super flippy but it has some turn, then fades back around 300' for a small S.

If I throw it flat it tracks right a bit then comes back left at the end, throws maybe 300' 310' for me. It and the wraith are the longest discs in my bag. It's pretty easy to control too.

It is an archon just less expensive Q sparkle is like $13 online and their version of pro is like $8.

Nothing earth shattering amazing about it but its reliable

I have one and tried my hardest to make it my main driver when first starting out, but I just don't have the arm for it. When you can get it up to speed, it'll go nice and far with some right to left movement. I got the base Millennium plastic, which feels a lot like Innova's Pro plastic to me. The other Millennium disc that I have that I can get a lot of distance out of is the QJLS. Love that disc. The QJLS is in Quantum plastic (obvious from the 'Q') and that plastic feels the same as Innova's Champion plastic. I do much better with slower discs though. I'd say it's worth a try but if you don't normally throw faster discs well, it might be frustrating for you.

I had a Millennium plastic Astra that was great until it beat in. Then it was a roller. I don't usually throw rollers, so it belongs to someone else.

I bought a used Sirius plastic Astra that had the picture of Selah Ranch on it. It was already beat, so it was not of use to me. It's gone too.

In a nutshell, I like them when they're new. That said, I'd recommend a Quantum plastic Astra if you're going to buy one.
