I don't have any Anvils, but I have everything else.

I can tell you already that the Corvette is a hell of a lot longer than the Pharaoh. Faster, too.

I've had pretty good luck with Mayhems. They're slightly harder to turn than a Catalyst, and far less likely to flip all the way over.

I won't say the Catalyst isn't worth trying. I actually like the way it flies. It's just so damn finicky. When you smash the Catalyst just right it flies beautifully as far as any other driver out...

Shryke vs. Catalyst

Today's head to head matchup in the field was (Star) Shryke vs. (Neutron) Catalyst. These are a couple fast, understable driver molds.

The Catalyst is listed at 13, 5.5, -2, 2. The Shryke is...

I wonder if you have to take into account which plastic a mold was introduced with.

Daedalus: G*
Shryke: Star or G*
Groove: Champion
Boss: Champion
Tern: Champion

Agreed. If anything, the Vulture fights wind better than the Anax. The Anax is lousy in headwinds. It flips fairly easily and never comes back.

It almost sounds like you need a Raptor.

Yeah. The Shryke is just a hair flippier than the Enigma. A bit faster, too.

Both are easily capable of 400'+ rips.

I have a love/hate relationship with the Crank. I've thrown probably 8 of...

Stability-wise I'd go Hades, Shryke, Enigma, Crank, in that order, from under to over stable.

I like Enigmas a lot. They're like broken in Destroyers for me. The Crank is a little beefier than the...

I only throw forehands on the course, and even then not very often. Backhand is my main throw. I only throw short forehands where I need a hooking shot around an obstacle, or to avoid trouble on the...

I've probably thrown 6 or 7 Swords. They're just disappointingly short. They seem similar to the Trespass, but I have better luck with Trespasses.

Swords tend to be flippy, but I've also seen a...

I've thrown 4 Hades'. The first one didn't have a ton of turn. The other 3 are -3 turn. The ones with more turn also have really floaty glide. I agree there's some mold inconsistency.

I have 1...

Stability seemed pretty normal to me. IMO the pro Tern flew like a star. It just didn't quite have the glide I was anticipating. Nor the distance.

the pro Tern is OK, but not groundbreaking.

I wasn't ridiculously impressed with the pro Tern either. I expected it to be glider than star or champion, and it wasn't. I won't call the pro Tern a horrible flier, but it didn't do anything...

Lots of Trilogy flight numbers aren't even correct out of the box. Westside seems to have the most problems. Stuff like the King, Queen, Destiny ETC are all way flippier than the numbers given.

I agree. Most CO courses are pretty basic. You'd need a mid, putter, fairway driver, and distance driver.

Some of the shorter courses I could play entirely with my Roc3 and McPro Aviar.

Disc flight characteristics: Altitude vs. lower elevation

Trilogy premium plastic (opto, VIP, lucid) definitely beats in faster than stuff like champion or Z. Fuzion and biofuzion (or gold line) also beat in faster than star or ESP.

It's tough to say how long it takes to beat in a disc. I say this, because I've seen premium plastic discs show no outward signs of wear, yet lose stability. I've also seen thrashed looking premium...

Neutron, 172g.

Impressive. Based on the given flight numbers I was expecting something fairly...

I can touch 500' if everything is working perfectly. I need a driver with high speed, some turn, and good glide. Most days I'm right at 450'. Let me just say, that last 50' is tough to get.

Can ANYONE throw 500'? I assume this means that if an average person worked hard enough, they could eventually reach 500' over time.

I'm gonna say no. Throwing a disc 500' (or even close to it)...
