Default Kastaplast Grym X Distance Driver

"Grym X is a stable distance driver that provides a well-balanced combination of accuracy and glide. It is designed to be that solid and dependable main driver that experienced players are asking for. As the name implies, Grym X is the beefy cousin to our popular Grym." - by Kastaplast.

2.2 rim, so about speed 12.

They've posted a couple of photos of it on Instagram, right now they're giving it the numbers of 12/5/0/3.

While I love those numbers and the feel of the original Grym in the hand, one of the photos of the rim that they posted makes it look like it's a Grym with a bead on it, which I'm not even wild about on mids, let alone high speed drivers. Hopefully it was just a weird photo.

Beaded driver=not in my bag.

If it was just the angle this sounds like a good Destroyer/Tresspass type disc that a lot of people would like in the amazing K1 plastic.

There is something there, but it looks really slim. I highly doubt it would be noticeable when you're getting ready to throw it.

Looks to be the same microbead as on the Kaxe.
Its not noticeable in the hand but does add a nice amount of stability.

I've got nothing against the microbead on the Kaxe, I think it and the Z make a nice pair. It's just adding that to a speed 12 disc that makes me a little iffy on it, seems like it could get caught on the finger on hard throws with a power grip or throw off a forehand grip.

I'll withhold judgement on the flight and feel until it's released and I get to try one out, but I will say I would've preferred a reshaped wing rather than slapping a bead on the Grym.

Well now they are saying there is no bead on the Facebook page, but that its just more concave... so now I'm confused.

Nevermind.... I didn't look close enough, they also just posted a profile pic.
Also clarified that the X wing will make it a bit more OS than the second run Gryms, which were themselves more OS than first runs.
I don't have a big arm so these are probably not in my wheelhouse.
Just waiting for them to put out some speed 9-10 discs... a Kastaplast SOLF would be perfect.

I'm a fan of the Gyrm, but it's not exactly what I'd call a 13-speed as advertised... I would be interested in the Gyrm X as the Gyrm that I have does like to flex quite a bit. I'll be interested to see how beefy these got. If it's more along the lines of a straight to OS driver, I'll definitely pick some up. Something more along the lines of a longer PD or a Prodigy D2. Hell, the exact distance and LSS of a Gyrm, with out the high speed turn! I'd love it. They have some great feeling plastic. (K1)
