Took the Kahu out to the field against other distance drivers I have had success with like the Emperor, DDX, Giant and Mayhem and it’s very interesting. When I give them all full power. Emperor goes far, but turns a lot and often more than I want. DDX throws the exact line that I want almost every time but 30 feet shorter than everything else I tried. Giant did great, long, S curve shots and giving me a good look on every hole.

Kahu though, when you gas it was going further than everything else on 7/10 throws and less left to right play. I’ve never had a disc that I knew could go 425+ backhand every time without risking a turnover. This one is legit.

I wish I had it handy to post a picture but it is a really cool-looking, swirly green plastic.

For you, it will probably be a bomber for you fresh and a turn over monster once beat in.

I really like how hard you can throw it and still know it will come back, even if it gets a fair amount of turn, there is still fade in the tank.

I have been using it when I play the new long tees at Etowah and there is a 508 foot hole with a creek OB right and I can pump it out over that OB and know it will come back and still get good distance.
How is the Cosmic Kahu? Or do you guys prefer Atomic? I'm thinking about getting one for forehands, and I like a little bit of turn. For reference, I often use a max weight Champ Katana (preferably with some dome but not flippy) for max D forehands. I used to be able to hit 400' but nowadays probably barely crack 360'. But I've got the smooth lol.

I’ve only got two Atomics because the colors available were much brighter. It throws a similar distance to the Katantas I used to throw, but is way less squirrelly for me at distance. I can throw them hard and they turn, but they do come back, and they are less prone to a super sharp fading flight if you get a little nose up.

Also pretty high on it since my longest backhand I’ve measured was a Kahu this week(467) and it was on target.
