Anyone broken in a XXX?

I dont throw my GL very much but wondering if it will ever lose any HSS? Its pretty much a utility disc at this point but I'm a big fan of the predator and hope the XXX has a sweet spot like the pred.

Yes, I have. I use a 175 Opto XXX, mainly for thumbers and FH. The thumbers are long and slow (that's what she said). FH drives don't come back as quick as they used too. Now this took alot of beating, and it is still an overstable disc. I'm a XxX fan. If by broken in, you mean Sidewinder... Not gonna happen.

I have an often used Opto that is starting to straighten out. I'm pretty sad about it. I want the big hook.

I like mine alot but my home course doesnt call for much use of it and the couple shots i could use for it I've been throwing the predator still. Just cant get away from it yet.

Let me know, I'll take it. Trident is a great choice, if you want a slower XXX.

I'm pretty curious to try out the XXX and Trident, mainly for thumbers. I love Lat64, and have been using my Striker and Halo for thumbers, but I could use another utility disc like that. A GL XxX beating into a flight like a Z Crush could be pretty sweet though.

I thought the thread title was a joke.

I don't think my xxx will ever break in.

Never thrown a Crush Dsplayname, but I have beaten a GL in pretty well. It's probably 7/10, and like most other discs lost HSS before LSS. Don't get me wrong, I could use this thing for another 1,000 rounds and it would still be PLENTY stable, but it has indeed lost some since new. It's a lot more manageable for the mere mortal AKA the true 400' or less thrower on actual windy distance shots, as opposed to just hyzers and OH (I know there is other uses).

I just got a 173 Opto and only have about 4 rounds on it so far, so it's not even close to broken in. I refer to it as my Vin Diesel.
