Default All things Astra!

So I just got these to try. I don't see much anywhere on the Astra, or much on millennium either for that matter. I personally have very favorable results with millennium plastic, and am very excited to let these fly!

Who around here throws the Astra? Let's get a conversation going.

They seem to vary more than Archons, which is strange. Some that are not labeled Astra-X are very overstable. Really like the version that is similar/same as Pro.

I saw that thread, but it wouldn't let me post in it, even after checking the old thread acknowledgement box.

I've got a JLS and Scorpius I bag that are awesome. Haven't tried an Astra yet though.

My initial impressions after 2 rounds:

Millennium Astra is a solid tailwind disc. Has a nice, semi-wide s turn to it. Keep the nose down and give it a little room and this thing is great. Was getting consistent 340-360 feet with it (340' is usually my top end distance)

Quantum Astra was a touch more stable, with a much tighter s. Tiny little touch of hyzer was giving me pretty darn straight flight, with forward fade. Did well on tunnels.

I think I'll carry these for a few weeks and see if I can really coax some performance from them. I'm pretty happy with them overall.
