I wonder how the quality of L64's plastic is affecting overstable drivers like the Ballista Pro. The plastic seems to wear out fairly quickly, making the discs start to lose stability.

I like the...

Nukes are one of those molds you can't really define by weight in terms of flight characteristics. I've seen some light ones that were maddeningly overstable. IDK if Discraft has worked lately to fix...

Shrykes are not hard at all to get up to speed. They're speed 13, but the rim doesn't feel wide. 350' power is more than enough to get some turn out of a Shryke.

If the Shryke is too much for...

I agree with you, yet I see so many average to below average players throw ridiculous discs like Destroyers or Bosses. The Destroyer is still by far the most popular mold out there, and I'd almost...

Is the Hades a mold Paul would bag or throw? I've never really seen him throw anything remotely understable. For long distance he seems to throw Kongs (Zeus), Force, or Destroyers years go.

I'll try anything once. That doesn't mean I'm looking to bag it, but I'm always game to try new molds.

Yup. I threw a few FLX Surges years ago. Super flat, glideless, and short.

FLX plastic may do well on mids or some slower drivers, but it flies poorly on anything fast.


I have a Z FLX Heat...

Again, I'm no expert, but I get my best distance chucking a somewhat understable disc flat. If I were Paige I'd throw something more like a Knight. Ripped hard flat (or even a touch hyzer) it'd pop...

Catrina has a BAD case of the yips. She could have won this event by a dozen or more strokes. Many, MANY horribly missed short putts.

Yeah, for me the EMac Truth flies like a really touchy driver. If you put even a little bit too much arm on it the disc flips and doesn't come back. If you underthrow it the disc stalls out and dies...

Crank

First run. Pretty much mint condition (not beat). It feels like throwing a coffee can lid. Its too flippy to be useful for anything.

I like that they at least didn't name this disc "Zeus SS". I find it annoying when companies (especially Discraft) take an established mold and then basically tweak it and add SS to the name. If...

Nukes are great drivers. I've bagged a Z Nuke for a long time. Once you throw the disc a bunch of times it slowly beats into something magical. A driver that has some high speed turn without being...

I fished a CE Valk out of a lake last year that is just destroyed. Someone literally threw this disc to death. On the 1-10 scale I'd give it MAYBE a 4. I haven't thrown it, but I'd imagine its super...

Me too. I find that the Surge is a bit mellower than a Wraith. It holds high speed turn longer and doesn't seem to have such a dumpy fade. I've bagged ESP Surges since they came out.

The 1 E* Destroyer I have is yellow and has a HUGE dome. Much domier than other star Destroyers.

It flies somewhat understable. It will definitely turn. It has a mellow late fade too. Overall it...

The EMac Truth is one of those molds I wanted to like, but didn't. Its simply finicky. Thrown hard, it flips over randomly and never comes back. I had a lot better luck with champion Roc3s. They stay...

I'm still a bit baffled by the whole Victus thing. They're completely overlapping the Starfire with that one.

Innova is the king of making redundant molds.
