Does anybody still throw a Beast?

I came to appreciate my 163 Beasts for huge downwind bombs at the end of last season. Then the snow came. So, I got out for my first field session of the year yesterday, and low and behold they were still bombing huge (for me).

What a pleasant surprise to see them riding the wind out beyond 375, espy early on like this. Man, I love this disc!

Anyone else chucking Beasts, or are they too old school?

I still throw a beast in and out of my bag. The beast was the first driver mold I had so it still holds a special place.

I am a big fan of the beast. I carry a 173 star and a 167 champ in my bag. Would not like to get on the course w/o them.

I know there are quite a few people in my area that throw them still, although I am not currently one of those people. I am pretty sure Barry Schultz is still bombing them since they are one of his signature discs.

I love the Beast. I have a Champion 172 that flies really straight and has great distance. Gotta have one in my bag.

It was my first driver as well. It's now my driver of choice for long turnover shots.
