Yikun Disc Golf-DAE

new from Yikun disc golf the dae. http://www.yikunsports.com/en/dae.html







I just received my Dae from China and have only thrown it for an hour so my impressions will change as i get more time with it. Yikun gives the Dae a rating of 13 5 0 3. This is the exact same rating as my Halo which i use for my distance wind disc. The Dae and Halo when thrown side by side are extremely similar with some interesting differences. From a flat 350+ throw the Halo and the Dae are similiar however as the Halo has a turn of 0 I would give the Dae a turn of 0.5 and the glide on the Halo is a 5 which i disagree with more like a 4 the Dae however is a 5. The Dae constantly out drove the halo by a good 40-50 ft. I am very excited to see what this disc works into.

the plastic reminds me very much of lat 64 gold line, if you blindfolded me i would not be able to tell the difference.


more to come as i use it

I have a red Da'E and would echo what mojo says. Maybe the slightest turn if throw hard as possible but an extremely reliable fade with solid glide. This disc is a power players dream driver.

Mark,

You will love the Da'e! To early to say for me but most likely will kick the halo out of my bag. I need more time obviously but my first hour with it I found that feeling of wow, that you hope to get with every new disc and that says allot as I have tried allot of discs where it is same same but different.

Good to know. I've been interested in these discs since I found out about them.

That rim looks super wide. How does it feel in the hand, about how you'd expect a speed 13'er to feel?

I keep saying it feels a lot like a bigger rimmed Gateway Slayer if you've felt one. They don't have the typical Destoryer, Excal feel to them. I have fairly small hands and am Still able to get a great grip on these.

I have a 164 TP giant and the giant is touch less stable than the Da’E.

Seriously if you have thrown a max weight Halo in Opto plastic then add 50ft and a micro touch of turn at about 200ft out on a flat 350+ throw you have the Da’E.

On errant throws the Halo and the Da’E literally landed within 5 ft of one another.

On flex shots the Halo was having none of it and quickly came back on line, whereas the Da’E grabbed legs and bombed easily 50+ft farther than the Halo and 20 ft farther than on good flat releases. Flex shots however are not my strong point so I mostly threw flat.

Both Discs responded well to a ton of snap however booth of them gained a 0.5 in stability as you would expect and the Da’E picked up a huge 30 ft skip whereas the halo simply crashed into the ground

As for grip it is the same width as my boss however it is a little deeper hence adding to my ability to hold onto it a little better. The Da’E has some flashing on it which I suspect when it wears away will add a little to the turn. I am very excited about what the Da’E will beat into I suspect it will be awesome and a mad bomber.

Definitely a keeper.
Gary
