Discraft Glide?

I just traded my buddy one of my aviars for an elite z glide. Everytime I threw it, it would fly straight for 100' flutter and then just fall out of its flight. I'm by no means going to dismiss this disc off one round, but if any of you glide throwers could give me some tips on its quirks it would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like a nose up flight. Try throwing it out toward the ground, and keep the nose down. My buddy throws a Glide and has no problems.

great understable mid but need to be throw flat or hyzer flipped. I get some laser beams out of a hyzer flip.

It's a great disc. Meteor is hard to find consistent flat in Z plastic. The Glides I have seen are flat which I LOVE. Also since its a touch faster than the Meteor it holds up to my bad OAT a bit better. I use it as a mid range as well.

DC calls it a long range driver, and it has a rim similar to a Zombee. Seems to be more of a tweener long mid/fairway driver.

Discraft is the only one that calls it a driver
The rest of the world doesn't
think of it as a faster, longer Midrange
Like a Buzzz or GM Gremlin
