Default Discmania Evolution Instinct

With the instinct being released on May 2nd I figured we better get a thread up and running about it. I just received my Neo instinct on Monday and have gotten about 10-15 throws in with it. This is a mold that will make it in to a lot of bags. If you have ever thrown a PD but wish you didn't have to SMASH on it to get a straight to fade flight the instinct will be right up your alley. The instinct and the FD2v3 are what I would call semi similar. The FD2 has a smaller hand feel and slightly less HSS. The Neo plastic that the instinct is run in has an excellent tack to it and feels great. My first throw with the instinct was on a 430' slightly downhill shot and thrown flat with 90% power I managed a dead straight flight with fade at about 80% of the flight that ended up 25-30' long (realistically the hole plays around 380-390'). I look forward to putting the instinct and the FD2 through the paces together and I think they may both have a spot in the bag

Sounds a lot like the flight of my Roaming Thunder. We will see soon.

The instinct should be much more HSS than a CD2 from my semi limited experience with the CD2. The instinct can take my full power (~500' golf power) without a problem on a flat/slight hyzer release. When I threw CD2 I had to hyzer release to get it to flip up to flat. If you release the instinct on a full hyzer it will not flip up to flat but instead hold the hyzer angle for the entirety of its flight. I threw a 380' spike hyzer with the instinct yesterday and it didn't show the slightest hint of flip up.

Sounds like the less stable runs of S-Line PD then. Might be useful if it powers down more easily or all future runs of PD are more OS like last year. Although I already have soooo many backups of good PD

I honestly feel like it is a PD that is just a tad slower. In my experience so far it seems that the distance potential of the instinct may even rival that of the PD with its HSS and glide but I have not thrown it for distance shots yet. This thing fits basically perfectly between the FD2v3 and the PD.

Yeah MMWV because I throw 350 max. Excited about the new plastic type, if not necessarily the flight (for my average Joe arm).

Felt one of these up yesterday and the plastic feels nice, kinda champystar. Pricey at $19.99 at a local shop.

Same flight numbers as the new FD2 but sounds a bit more stable from the reviews. More dome than I prefer, gonna pass on trying this one since I have beat S-PDs and a couple of Roaming Thunders I'm trying to love.

I do believe the FD2v3 will possibly be a more popular disc for a lot of people. It does not require the same power levels to achieve similar flights which makes it more forgiving. The flat top of the FD2 also feels great. I personally see myself probably bagging both the FD2 and the instinct and dropping PDs. Gotta get in some more time with the instinct.
