Evolution Enigma
Finally the distance driver from Discmania, produced by Latitude 64 is here.

When I saw the metallic EO stamped Enigma drop, before even announcing the flight numbers I wasn't sure but then I realized what a sweet thrower it could make and ordered two.

I have nothing but faith in the Evolution line and early reports is deeper DDx or more stable Trespass. I've always dreamt about a speed 12 Flow and never gave the Recoil a chance, this might be it!

Anyone threw one?

This disc got big potential, wide and deep rim, more fade but also distance than the Swirly-s CD3.

OOTB 375' slight flex which is practically my max on a leveled field with no wind. It feels like one disc that can replace both the DD and the DD2.
Compared it to a US CD3, straight cd3, slightly OS cd3 a slightly more OS CD3 and a DD2 with glide.

On a slight hyzer it flew a simular line to the Swirly-s CD3 but slightly further and more left, on a flat it flew as far as a 169g Swirly-s CD3 but with a slightly bigger fade and on a slight anny it faded out slightly too early but still almost went as far as a percent slight turnover with penned CD3 and DD2 at 385'...

Beat in this will be a beast! Goes in the bag as my stable max distance disc.

The Enigma is close to what I expected the Cloud Breaker to be but still more stable than I expected. It's fairly similar in stability to my flat glow c-line PD2 but with less fade. It seems to hold anhyzer longer than the PD2 as well.

I was able to get it out to 450 but only by giving it anhyzer out of my hand. Much more stable than and not quite as long as my S-DDx, but I can see it breaking in to a bomber fairly soon.

Thrown one a couple of dozen times. Pretty darn glidey and long when you get the angle right. It was just sometimes hard to gauge how much turn it would have. Headwinds I couldnt really figure it out.

Ended up selling mine now when I can get almost the same price than what I paid for new. Partly due to congestion in my bag, especially in the distance driver section. Glow PD2s and DD3s are still battling it out and the Rampages reign supreme for max distance. Dont really need a newcomer on the block.

Will sure give them another chance when the stock release rolls along.

I wonder how they compare to my pop-top (read: overstable) shrykes? They are VERY glidey with not much turn at all. Think of it as a nicely, gently beat in destroyer. Thoughts? Sounds very similar.

How is this compared to DD3?

A touch less stable. Think of it more as a DD3 better suited for most arms.

More glide?

Mine just came in. No idea how it's going to fly, but the shape makes me think Ballista Pro. The plastic feels as good, to me, as any plastic I have ever thrown.

I'll preface this in saying I have not touched a DD3 so I can't compare it, but I'll assume a few things based on what I've seen. I threw a 173g and 175g Enigma around for about a half hour this evening and I really like the feel and flight of these.

I've spent the most time throwing D2s and Raiders, throwing 430-460' golf lines with both. The Enigma was more comfortable than both in hand. It's probably due to these being 12 speed and D2s/Raiders being 13, but getting a solid grip felt natural and easy. Neither Enigma I threw had a lot of dome, but they weren't board flat either. This didn't take away from the glide, which is every bit of the 5 listed. The 173 flipped up if thrown with a little hyzer, stayed straight for most of the flight before fading. The fade was a nice forward fade, which I like. The 175 didn't flip up quite as much if thrown with the same amount of hyzer; just had more fade, less distance, as expected. Thrown flat the 173 turned a hair, but still flew straight for most of the flight before fading. With anhy, it held the turn for the first half of the flight but still wanted to get to straight and fade. The 175 was just more stable.

Overall, these fly like a beat in Destroyer clone like a D2, Raider, and [I'm assuming] DD3, but less overall left and right movement. They're definitely still on the stable-overstable side of distance drivers, but they want to spend most of the flight staying straight. The flight numbers are right on IMO. I'm very eager to see how these age, in both flight and feel. This Neo plastic feels really great.
