Can someone with more experience with Trilogy tell me what a good step up from an Escape would be? Looking for a true distance driver but not warp speed and wide rimmed.

The flow, renegade, and trespass seem like prime suspects. One thing I like about the Escape is that it molds up differently across plastics, so I can get a nice S out of a Bio or Fuzion, and then throw a moonshine or even a Getaway and get the same glide with solid HSS.

Extra points for a disc that slots in well next to a similar feeling and flying but more beefy OS bookend disc, and the same for a more US disc. I would probably continue to bag a Star Mamba for flippy needs.

You'd be happy with the Trespass - readily available in all types of plastic. It's a definite step up in both speed and stability from an Escape.

My favorite in that slot is the Sword: they just bomb.

I've only thrown a few Escapes, but I agree with the Trespass as a natural step up in speed. You can definitely have a difference in stability between them, from pop up and glide to sweep fade, to ones that are turnover bombers. They power down very easily for being a speed 12ish driver.

I also agree that the Sword is very similar in flight characteristics to the Trespass, generally on the less stable end of them from the ones that I have thrown.

Interesting fact: while the Trespass is rated as speed 12, and Escape as speed 9, their rims are almost the same width: 2.1 for the Trespass, 2.0 for the Escape.

So in the Innova universe, it would be more like moving from a speed 10 to 11.

The Trespass rim is noticeably shallower than the Escape's. Hence the added speed.

Its like a Katana vs. a Boss. They have the same width rim, but the Katana's is way shallower. Innova says they're both speed 13, but a Katana easily flies faster than a Boss.

sorry if this is explained in here but i read a bunch of the pages and did not see a breakdown. How is Fuzion Escape in terms of dome and stability compared to lucid and bio fuzion?

My lucid is domey and more stable. So i like to forehand my biofuzion one because it is flatter but i wish it was as stable as my lucid. So i was wondering of magically the fuzion escape is flat like bio and more stable like lucid.

One thing that everything does seem to agree on is that this thing bombs. Therefore, I assume that's true. What is it that makes it go so far? Is it a significant turn and then hook up? Glide? Both?

Can anyone by chance compare to a Discraft Zflx Heat (which is more stable than Z or Big Z Heat)?

Thanks!
With the variations in plastics, domeyness, player arm strength, player release angles, freshness of disc, etc. i am starting to think that choosing the correct discs is a random exercise at best. There has to be a way for the manufacturers to start producing more consistent discs. I find it be a major struggle, as I play around tons of water and go through quite a few discs and none of them are ever the same. makes developing a consistent game extremely difficult.

I found this to be the case as well, which is why I’ve found some molds I really like in DX plastic and just started cycles. Dx eagles and rocs are the core of my bag, they all feel and fly the same when fresh, seasoned, and beat

DX Eagle. Button pushed. DX Thunderbird is the only DX I like more.

Prime Escape is another fave. You get a lot of mileage out of them before they are rollers/lake bait.

I get you guys like to cycle molds and all. I just don't throw my discs in lakes. Rarely in ponds. I'm okay with creeks. Beat them into where you want them then don't lose them.

Escapes are nice af though, bag 2 currently.
