Default Super Class discs

For any of you that have played super class, what is your favorite disc and why? I have used ultrastars and fastbacks and am curious about how other discs perform, specifically the superhero, superstar and zephyr.

These are the discs that are just bigger and heavier, right? I think I saw Dave Greenwell pull one of those out at a tournament once...

Superclass discs are generally more like catch discs, yes, and the ultrastar is legal for disc golf. It was intended as a way to make short courses more challenging again, and as a bridge to bring more ultimate players into disc golf.

Never played superclass but would definately throw UltraStars. I might be tempted by the Daredevil Game Disc if it is legal and I can't think of a reason that it wouldn't be. I have seen a Superhero in action and it seems like the older discs that they would use to do the longest time in the air competitions so I would assume that it is going to float even more than the Ultrastars.

I have a couple of Zephyrs, one in the 160g range and one that is near 200g. They are the only superclass discs that I have any experience with. They really float and pretty much hold whatever line you put on them with very little fade. They are shaped like a large Birdie or polecat with the same type of rim. I presume that Zephyrs are the most popular and there must be a good reason for that.

Personally, I think superclass discs are much more fun just to throw around casually or use it on a specific hole that would warrant it's flight characteristics. As far as superclass events go, I have played in one superclass tournament. It was fun but I really don't enjoy playing superclass very much. I found putting to be much more frustrating. For me, if I missed the basket then the disc just flew right on by and left me with another tricky putt.

I found a zephyr and I have only used it for playing catch while warming up before a round. That thing is huge, I doesn't fit real well in the bag. Very flippy too.

Hmm, never knew that. Thanks for the info...I would just find it funny to find someone playing our course with a normal catch disc. But I'm sure it would help noobs too at getting into it because generally a disc is much harder to throw far and strait at first. But now I can't really even throw a catch frisbee that well without hyzer flipping it or tossing it very lightly so couldn't help =/

I've seen Ultrastars being used at the course a few times. I see it, and just turn and look the other way. Really, I just dont know what to say. Could be someone new to the sport who just grabbed a "Frisbee" or it could be someone from an Ultimate background that likes to use them, so I just walk on.

I had a Zephyr that we would use for a warm-up disc. Reminds you of a really heavy frisbee, meaning you dont want to heave it.
