Any stability difference between the regular LX and Glimmer-X?

Only have one of each to test, but just got to throw the chameleon glimmer tour series and have the thoughts to share.

The glimmer is oddly domey, mostly in its shape. I tried to take a pic but it’s hard to tell with the lighting I had. It is very gradual toward the rim and then in the center of the plate it pops up big time like a pyramid. It doesn’t really change the hand feel at all it’s just unique looking mostly.

The stability battle goes to the regular lucid x. Both are max weight. My regular lucid x is a fade machine and doesn’t really go straight, just hyzer the whole way. The lucid x chameleon glides way more but still has a strong fade for a truth at the end. It held a decently straight flight and then dumped at the end. Pretty cool for this mold. Only want to carry one, not sure yet but the new chameleon is just too cool looking to not throw.

Orange is straight lucid x, blue is the new chameleon.

The glimmer Verdicts (at least the blue one I have, my pink one is flat) have the same weird dome. However, I find the glimmer to be more Os than the first LX. Weird the truth is different. Thanks for the write up!

Really like the feel of this disc currently throwing a lucid. How do the other plastics compare? I’m trying to compliment the lucid with one that will season a little bit more into a -1,1 flight path.

Biofuzion is the answer, especially if you go about 5 grams lighter than your lucid. I know the temptation is to get a Prime Emac, but those are so board flat that they feel and fly like a completely different mold. Same problem with the Classic Emacs.

For reference, I bag a fresh Lucid-X, 1.5 year old Lucid, and 2 year old Biofuzion.

Could pair it with a [regular] Truth. They have that -1,1 flight. Currently bagging L-Glimmer-X Verdict (makes its way left out of the hand), Fresh-ish MF-L EMac (no flip, but straight to fade), 2 yr old L EMac (small flip to small fade) and an L Warrant (flippy). I sometimes squeeze in an old prEMac, small silhouette (flip to flat lazer) between the Warrant and warn EMac.

Did you grab that metal flake Emac recently? If so, where? I'm pretty close to needing to slide my last backup into the bag, so I'd like to stock back up. I could obviously just throw regular Lucids instead, but I've really enjoyed that 2017 GBO metalflake run.

Negative. I think I got the one I have now from DGC, but could have been marshal street. Your best bet will be MST, I think. I just picked up a couple Lucids from them for some backups. Honestly, though I haven’t thrown them yet, the pair I got feel a little stiffer than normal (for lucid), which could possibly lend themselves to being more OS. Not sure though. TBH, the MF I have (stock stamp) is no more OS than any other EMac.

On that note, I have a MF felon and enforcer that fly straighter than I would have expected. Shrugs. To that end, I haven’t cared to seek out any MF Lucid as I think Lucid will be very similar. Obviously, this is just my experience!
