I'll add this, for anyone looking at these X discs- the X2,3,5 all require good speed/power/technique. I have to work very hard to get these to fly as the pic, while other molds get there and farther with the same or less effort. All of these are very predictable, so I think good golfers will be able to put them right where they want. Even the understable X5.

I'm somewhere between a casual thrower and good. I don't have 400' shots anymore, except for the occasional fluke, and I don't reach for the X2,3 unless there's a headwind or I need a predictable fade

X5 is weirdly/uniquiely understable and stable at the same time. The X5 is a great disc for long smooth turning shots. If you have a lot of power you can get a good hyzer flip to late turn out of it, but for me it's a flat-turn-smoothly-until it slows enough to fade. That can mean turn into the ground if I there's not enough air under it, but it's different from every disc in my bag. Or any that Ive tried.
I've said this before, but I'm excited to try all these X's in light and very light weights.

I bought a light 161g X3 in 400g plastic. It has taken the place of the X5, which has been in and out of the bag for a while. The lighter X3 is more predictable for me. It is an X3 that turns a lot more than the heavy X3, which is basically what my X5 did.

I still like the X5 for forehands and rollers, but am using the H5 for those more. I have a pretty gimpy forehand.
