Panic

I threw a Panic for the first time today. Neutron plastic. Unknown weight.

Based on what I read, I was expecting something very similar to MVP's Dimension. The Panic flew similar, but not exactly...

Best Thrasher I threw was a Big Z. Just a perfect disc. It would drift right a bit without getting too flippy. The Z Thrasher I threw just wanted to turn over into the ground on every throw.

G* Terns can be erratic and flippy, but they're super long. I still prefer star Terns. I think they're a little more consistent. However, the G* Tern definitely gets a nod for "easy distance". The...

Champion Roc 3. It'll start straight, and STAY straight. Champion plastic beats so much more slowly than Lucid, or any other plastic DD makes.

The Emac Truth has a super obnoxious habit of turning...

Tough to say. I've thrown 2. One was massively beefy, and the other was almost flippy. Destroyers are so hard to pin down unless you actually throw them to figure out how they fly.

You can't even...

Yeah. I've messed around with throwing high before, but yesterday was the first time I was really impressed with any of it. I was able to throw the discs almost ridiculously high without having them...

I agree that having something to aim at makes a huge difference. You focus on your throw more and tend to have better mechanics. Going out and throwing wild, aimless bombs in a field can create bad...

Throwing fast drivers higher in the air

Yesterday while throwing in the field I experimented with throwing drivers on higher lines than I usually do. The results were surprising. Rather than ripping the disc flat and close to the ground...

Neither the Tern nor Thrasher are what I'd consider predictable. They can vary widely from disc to disc, and I'd never use either mold on a shot where accuracy was necessary.

For me the Tern is...

Tendinitis

Stuff like that takes a surprisingly long time to go away. Months. You'll have to scale down your disc golf quite a bit and let it heal.

Continue to use your arm for routine stuff, but lay off...

The last Cannon I threw was ridiculously overstable and glideless. I was lucky to get 360' out of it. Disc just looked for the ground immediately.

I've thrown other Cannons that were way longer.

I find that flippy discs don't work well for sidearm shots. G* Shrykes are good out past 400', but you'll need a hyzer release to keep the disc from turning and burning.

If you want to sidearm a...

Rolling would be the one use I'd find for the Havoc. I really wanted to like that disc, but its so flippy. Like a speed 13 Roadrunner.

What does it throw like? 2.1 CM sounds like speed 11. Could be an Archon or Mamba. I've seen both of those with proto stamps.

Havocs are just so damn flippy. I couldn't keep them flat to save my life. Even with a sharp hyzer the disc wanted to turn and burn.

The Havoc has no late fade. Once you turn it, see 'ya.

What are the other models?

Very few discs give me the same distance Shrykes do. Terns and Ballistas are about it.

I've thrown 5 or 6 Sorcerers over the years. Every time I find one I think, "this is going to be the one". They all fly exactly the same for me. Really flippy, and somewhat glideless. I can hyzerflip...

I'd be highly dubious. There's a difference between easy distance and being so flippy you can't throw it flat at all. A 150 Tern would be too flippy to get any sort or yardage out of.

Throwing into a headwind, I'm going with something that has at least a 2 for fade. The wind will naturally help a disc turn. If you have no late fade, the disc will never come back.

My champion Teebird is good for 370' or so without turning over. Champions don't really break in. If you want a Teebird to break in, check out G*.

Westside should cut the following high speed drivers:

Queen
Sorcerer
Catapult
Either King or Destiny. Keep one of the two, but not both. They're too similar.
