Uh oh...you ready for this?

The Epic is one of the most maligned discs on DGCR. It can be used effectively if thrown overhand. Other than that, it's not very popular.

Edit: What other discs do you have?

Fasten your seatbelts we will be experiencing some turbulence.

Epic is a "niche" disc with a specific use for over-hand as I understand it. Threw one backhand once and that was the last time.

If you can throw a baseball from center field to home plate, you might be able to make effective use of this disc.

My buddy Steve uses one for gigantic tommys. He can get them out to 400 feet real distance...but they are generally not very accurate. You can "tune them" to curve how you want, but one hit and they lose that. He keeps one in the bag, but I'd be suprised if he uses it more than twice a month.

...and if I'm not mistaken, they're supposed to be "tuneable" by bending the wing up/down as you see fit.
Never thrown won personally, but I've seen some a guy who was uncannily good with one.
