Mine didn't stay in the bag as I stated before. Every now and then I will get a teepad or upshot that makes me wish I had room for it though.

It's a really good understable mid. I wasn't crazy about it, but if you like to hyzer flip to straight you will probably like it a lot.

Thanks BroD. I see you are a Fuse man. How do the two compare? I always found the Fuse to be, ironically enough, a bit squirrelly...

Sorry, I had to.

My fiancee throws squirrels as her main mid, really solid controllable mid. The different plastics do make a difference, their version of champ plastic is real straight and has some fade out of the box, the opaque plastic is flippier right off the bat but doesn't seem to get terribly squirrelly with wear. It doesn't fit well in my bag, but I think it's a great disc.

What plastic Fuse were you throwing that was "squirrelly"? Heavier Opto's are very stable/neutral and much less affected by the wind than GL's.

The Flying Squirrel is very similar to a Comet...an old style mid with more of a rounded and sloping wing, and a narrow deep rim. I was throwing them a lot for a while, but ultimately I couldn't get used to the rim. Squirrels have a little fade to them where the Fuse will be dead straight. Squirrels also have a ton of glide, more than the Fuse. And they are longer than the Fuse because of it.

I didn't think the squirrels I threw flew anything like a comet. Less glide, less touchy, a little more forgiving, and a little faster. To me they were much closer to something like a fuse or meteor than a comet.

I love mine for slow turnovers. I don't throw it often, but it hasn't failed me yet. I love the Gold plastic too. I think it's very underrated.

I was talking about physical appearance, not comparing how the two fly.

And the Fuse is simply a bad comparison, it doesn't look anything like the Squirrel, nor does it fly like one. I have thrown both together for nearly 2 years, hundreds of throws each. Have you?

Gotcha, I've got a ton of throws on comets and squirrels, not as many on fuses. Either way, the squirrel and comet don't fly alike and I don't think they feel alike in the hand either.

I thought it was your fiance who throws the Squirrel, and that you said it "doesn't fit well in my bag." How does that equate to tons of throws with the Squirrel?

BTW, I came up on a group of 6 on the teepad of a 420 ft hole today. When I asked how many of them were going to throw a Leopard, I got looks of bewilderment. I had to tell them it was a joke.
