The escape has quickly become my goto driver since I still don't have the power for any high speed stuff. I have 2 in my bag, one lucid, one fuzion, and I must say they are really money for me right now. I put them out the with a slight touch of hyzer and they will follow the exact line I intended. The Lucid plastic definitely is my favorite though.

If you haven't tried one yet, you should!

Took my Escapes out for trial #2 today. I was hoping they would be more stable than my Opto Saints, but they didn't seem to be. 175g Lucid Escape couldn't handle 10mph winds, it turned all the way over from some decent hyzer/clean release. I tried again on a water hole in calmer wind, but a breeze further down the fairway kept it turning all the way over into the center of a pond. I expected to hyzer flip them, maybe some movement to the right, but the lack of fade was surprising to me.

If you want a free Escape, check the pond on hole 12, Victory Park, Albion, MI.

I'm very surprised about people saying the escape is flippy. I absolutely love them. About a -0.5 has, and a 2 lss. The escape for me really is a longer Eagle X. I throw a saint as my just straight shot and they pair well together.

I have a 169 gram escape in Lucid that seems to fall between my S and PPD's Has a very slight turn with a reliable fade. I really enjoy throwing it, and it seems like a disc i can count on.

My main lineup is Saint --> Escape --> PD. It fits perfectly between those two. Easy distance and predictable.

i do agree slightly with you. while neither my bio or lucid will fight or hold in headwind, the bio is certainly more stable. -.5, 1 for me while the fuzion is more -.5, 0. i felt the saint and escape were pretty similar discs though.

my experience as well, really pair well with a SPD as the headwind disc, escape for the tail.

i keep saying this but it's really relevant in that this really is the easiest disc i regularly put over 400.

Yeah, the PD escape pairing seems to jigsaw together perfectly.

Not sure if this applies here but I throw DX Teebirds but I am looking for something more durable. In my past exp. once I upgrade to star it's way more OS than i want and it would take forever to beat in. I guess I'm just looking for a disc to fly like a DX teebird in more durable plastic. Thought the escape might be close ? Thoughts?

You guys are getting me really excited to buy some of these. I've been looking for a fairway between my rivers and PD's. I'm probably going to order some of these very soon.

How does it compare to a P-PD or a Saint?
