Review: The sharp shooter 2 is a great mid driver. I can throw the thing 250 feet or so. You need to know that you must put massive power with good spin to hold it straight. If you throw it slow it is useless. On a windy winter day in Michigan 20 degrees or so at Brewer Park, I found myself at a 175-200 foot up-shot. The wind blew maybe fifteen mph or so against and to the right of me. I launched the sharpshooter slightly high and to the right of the target with full power. That is one step full power because the snow was five inches deep. The rocket throw was placed perfect for a chain crashing birdy, so when you throw this disc you need to be prepared to shoot for the chains and not fot the easy lay-up. The sharp shooter 2 is one of my most predictable discs. awesome!

Review: I've been disc golfing for about a year now, with a strong background in catch-disc play. I generally drive around 260 feet. The Sharpshooter #2 is a mid-grade plastic, copper colored, floats in water, mid-range disc. The flight plate is quite thick and the disc itself is pretty durable, but the leading edge is squared off and can get dinged pretty quickly. The damage I have on mine does not appear to have changed its flight characteristics, though. With a flat, clean release, it goes very straight until it loses speed, which happens quickly. It then fades hard to the left. The fade is consistent across all the sharpshooters, so you always get the same hook at the end. O.K. for going around some obstacle close to the target, but if you need something that will finish straight, or just straighter, you need to look elsewhere. I find it doesn't skip when it hits, that may be a plus.

Review: So I wanted my freind to buy a disc for himself and the aerobie name got him, he loves is record-holding ring. I'd assume that he didn't know how to throw the sharpshooter #2 but it throws nothing like I'd expect a mid range disc to. It takes a hard cut soon after speed loss, unlike the sharks and others that have the long and stable and flat peeter out. I can say that at high speeds it seems to follow a remarkable straight line, but the sharp dive makes it hard to place shots. A problem after all; this is supposed to be a mid-range/lay-up disc isn't it?! the other agrivating thing about this disc is that it is the same brown color of dead leaves and underbrush, so if you don't have good control, clear your schedule to look for this thing, unless in the water, 'cause it DOES float, one cool plus.
