Also the Eclipse Resistors are almost unusably overstable, even at light weights.

I read this initially as Reactor and was befuddled. Re-read and it makes perfect sense. The current runís already noticeably more stable than the 2021s, and the eclipse is likely a step up from that.

Ha I find the eclipse 180 reactor almost overstable useless haha. If that makes you feel better.

There's probably a bunch of people that are happy with the new resistors.. There was a lot of *****ing when they weren't stable enough. I had a FR that I knew would always fade, played in a windy tourney and it flew dead straight towards a pond, didn't make enough distance, zero fade, splash. Now it's a fireball in the bag for those odd occasions.

Get me an eclipse relay already!!

You guys are out of your mind. Eclipse Reactors are basically 5 speed Teebirds. I can comfortably rip on them hard and flat, and watch them sail straight for a looong ways, with no worry of rightward movement. Then they have that small, consistent fade. Definitely my favorite midrange. However to put things into perspective, I'm throwing at only 700' elevation, and can usually crank Destroyers out to 380-430.


Edit, I too read Reactor and not Resistor from Muddyboots' post as well, ha.

Huge fan of the eclipse reactors. Apologies for the confusion.

Nah I just can't read is all.

I like the recent (but not current) run Resistors pretty well for what they are, but I'm definitely a little more consistent with them on backhand. I wouldn't mind trying the current on forehand, but I'm also not making it a priority.

In other overstable news, I did have a couple legitimately excellent skip shots yesterday at Deerfield with the Motion. I've toyed with pulling it out of the bag, but there's room and when the moment's right and you've got to clear a corner, nothing else will do what it does.

I picked up a 167 with the new Halloween stamp for my first glow round this weekend. I'm glad I did. We had some 15mph winds, which is a lot for us in AZ. I usually lean on my Volts, but they probably would have been all over the place in that wind. I'm forehand dominant, and the Resistor was flying like a slightly shorter Volt into the headwind, like a shorter Firebird with a tail wind. I'm curious to see what it's like with no wind. Could be a nice forehand utility disc.

BH it is a little flippy when thrown hard. Ordered a back up. The Blank one, slightly heavier, is much, much more OS. Curious if anyone else has had a similar experience.

I've had a Zenith 172 stock stamp for a little more than two months, and its staying in the bag. It works best for me at mid-level flight and flies dead straight with fade and skip at the end. So, I use it primarily hitting gaps in the woods making sure there's room for the fade, a few times with 15-25 mph wind on a mostly open course, and the Zenith handling the wind very well on from any direction with more distance than the gap play in the woods. I would like to find a Zenith at the bottom weight of 165 just to see if I can get it up a little higher, in the meantime a fission photon takes care of the loftier shots but more wayward.

Now that I think about it, the Zenith is one of my most reliable disc in the bag, reminds me of throwing the Boatsman, but the Zenith more accurate on the line.

Agreed! I want more eclipse options!
