The Hades is a far better option than a Nuke SS overall. Its less finicky and will go every bit as far on a full rip.

It can't hurt. If you hit small branches, a heavy disc will smash through them easier than a light one. Obviously against larger limbs the disc weight isn't going to matter.

Disc weight seems to...

I started bagging a Z Zone lately. I really like what the disc does. It can be used for short tee shots, approach shots, or putting on windy days. The flight is glideless, overstable, and consistent....

I've actually seen Flicks that turn. MOST Flicks won't, but some do. I pulled them out of my bag for that reason. When I throw a Flick, I don't want any turn out of it.

When a Flick turns, it can...

I've actually thrown 2 Hades' now. These things aren't as flippy as I've been reading about. I'm able to get them out to about 450' without a ridiculous amount of turn. They fly elegantly. Not quite...

ESP proto Hades

I got to throw my first Hades today. ESP proto, unknown weight. Probably 170g or so. Here are my thoughts.....

Like the proto Zeus, the plastic on the Hades is gorgeous. Shiny, swirly, and...

I agree. The Sapphire will get downrange easily with a fairly average toss. What I really like about it though is that it'll also give you another 40' or so if you really lay into it hard. The...

Waves are by far the most lost MVP disc I encounter. I've found no fewer than a dozen.

I've thrown a few good Waves, but mostly I find them too flat, flippy, and glideless to be of much use.

I can't deal with the Tenacity either. SOOO flippy and touchy. The Catalyst isn't nearly as bad, nor is the Mayhem.

I got the Tenacity well over 450' a few times, but mostly I was turning and...

Cloudbreaker 2

Well, I got to throw a Cloudbreaker 2 yesterday. Here are my thoughts:

Disc is 175g.

Nice dome. My other Cloudbreaker is a lot flatter.

Pretty overstable, but with good glide. The...

Tough to say. I see both star and champions that are domey..... or flat. Plastic doesn't seem to play a huge role in determining dome with the Katana.

You might be able to email the online disc...

Flight-wise, I didn't find the Orc or Sword to be very similar to the Sapphire. Swords are flippy, and the Sapphire really isn't. Throwing only 300', you won't really any flex out of the Sapphire....

I like both champ and star, as long as they're domey. For sheer distance sake I'd say stars are a little longer.

I don't mess with pro plastic anymore. It flies OK for a while, but then goes...

Junk. If you have any armspeed they're unmanageably flippy. Not a fun disc to throw, and I have nothing good to say about the air King. If you throw over 350' you might as well go with a full weight...

Sapphire

OK, time to briefly revisit the Sapphire again. I still have just the 1. Opto Chameleon plastic, 157g.

I hadn't thrown this disc in a couple months.

Just wow. My initial thoughts on this disc...

The Mayhem takes power a lot better than a Wave. Waves will just flip all over the place when you really lay into them. The Mayhem will usually hold steady if you put some hyzer on it.

I've thrown several Mayhems in both plastics. For me they aren't quite as overstable as an Octane. I definitely get better distance with the Mayhem than the Octane. Octanes are hard to turn, and they...

IDK, the Twin Swords was one of the worst drivers I've ever thrown. It almost seemed like a counterfeit version of some MVP or Axiom disc.

That is simply incomprehensible.

Paige S hasn't had a good year.

The Raider is simply a good mold. I've thrown 8-10 of them now (all Fuzion) and haven't had a bad one. In heavy weight they're a bit overstable. In lighter weights they have some turn.

Some echo star discs are flippy brand new. I'd never...

In premium plastic, I find that Teebirds don't really beat in under normal play. Whatever flight they have new they'll maintain for a long, long time.

Now, if you were talking pro or DX Teebirds,...
