Bringing this bad boy back into discussion.

Somewhat surprisingly, I've been using the Stego more and more over the last year. I play primarily heavily wooded golf (Hidden Ridge, Idlewild, Banklick/Lincoln Ridge, etc.) and the Stego has become a go to disc. Its ability to carve out some crazy twisting/curving shots allows me to get creative. It's my go to "get out of jail" disc and I sometimes even use it for approaches because I feel like I can control the distance at which it'll just dump straight to the ground and stick.

I mostly throw it like a baseball pitcher with a 3/4 delivery, kind of a mix of overhand and forehand. The thing will curve left, hook up, then just dump to the right. I'm actually a bit surprised at the distance you can get when you throw full power at that angle.

I'm likely going to pick up a premium plastic version to try soon. The base level plastic has cloverleafed pretty good from tree hits but it doesn't seem to change the flight characteristics.

I have a few. Some are basically mangled. Still fly exactly the same
It’s really a remarkable disc

Picked up an Amber Stego. They may as well have just named it ste cause this thing goes nowhere. I’ve used it a good bit on some wild flex shots/non turn OH’d and lots of get outta jail shots, this thing is nuts haha
