Max weight Opto Fuses (180g) are a thing of beauty. That extra mass doesn't seem to change the speed at which the disc starts to turn, but it makes the disc turn over more slowly once it is traveling...

I would just stick with one of the softer plastics if you want to beat it into a turnover disc. R-Pro is perfect for that because it's a plastic that initially beats in fairly quickly, but then after...

If you're throwing directly at the basket, keep your wrist above your elbow to ensure that you're throwing nose-up. Alternatively you can just throw a hyzer at it if you have the room, since that...

Yeah, it's pretty much the same disc. The only difference is that you can get them in different plastics. A Champion or Star Teebird will stay a bit overstable for a long time, but an Opto Explorer...

Gotta hop on that OS mid gravy train. Clearly people are buying these discs if every company is rushing to make one, but I gotta wonder if Streamline is a little late to the party. I'm interested to...

Well it helped me throw more nose-down, but that's mostly because the Catalyst forced me to adopt a slightly different grip for my drivers, which I ended up using on all my other drivers too. I...

The Catalyst definitely flies much more overstable if you throw it nose-up. The dome basically catches air and slows the disc down very quickly if you throw it nose-up, so it acts more overstable and...

I would place the Catalyst somewhere between the Sheriff and the Captain, but I don't throw as far as you so YMMV.

At that distance, an Escape might be more straight out of the box, but if you can take the time to beat up a Convict a little bit it might be the straightest fairway driver in DD's stable for your...

If you bag a Buzzz and a Roc3 you could try the Trilogy equivalents of those same discs, the Compass and the Emac Truth. Or you could hold onto the midranges you have and try some mids that fill...

Personally I like to throw putters backhand and mids forehand, if given the choice. I still find room for an Anvil and a Slammer in my bag, because I prefer to throw them on different shots. I'm sure...

My classic blend Slammer beat in to the point where it doesn't really do what I want it to do anymore. If I throw an overstable approach disc on a little flick anhyzer, I want it to fight out of that...

Just my two cents, but it seems like the top pro ratings *should* be creeping up as the sport grows larger, just like we're seeing. There's nothing strange about the best player out of a group of...

I haven't thrown any Gateway mids, but I don't think the rim on the Ion should bother you unless you power grip your putters. I will warn you that the Ion is pretty deep, and it doesn't handle a...

Since you mentioned that you throw the Pure. I throw both an Opto Pure and a Plasma Ion, and I use the Ion as the next step up in stability from the Pure. It might not be quite as stable as the Envy,...

I'd be interested to hear how fast it wears, if anyone wants to check back in after throwing the disc for a couple months. These understable-when-fresh drivers can either get better or worse as they...

The Pilot fills this spot in my bag. I guess the Pilot isn't incredibly understable, but it has significantly more turn than my Pure, and I personally don't drive with any putter that's more...
