My dealer told me it's pretty much a crush OS. Put mine on a steep anhyzer into headwind for a flex shot and at 330 it still had wicked skip after landing. Flies like my champion teerex, just stupid OS. don't know why they made this, but hey I bought it so.....

Well it's reliable af in a 20 mph headwind...so there's that. It's got a wider rim than the Pred but not as deep so a little more comfy. For my purposes they're pretty similar. Perhaps a masher could tell a difference on a drive. As far as I'm concerned, it's a predictable right finishing (lhbh) fairway and utility that feels good.

You're assuming no one wants this kind of overstability.

For me, this isn't stupid OS, but still fills the controlled headwind/downhill distance slot. This fights out of annys but not as aggressively as a Firebird, Felon, H1, etc. I was hoping for a mini Nuke OS, which would be...a Max.

Speed 9? That's off. It's a 2.1 rim width.

Just got mine in the mail. Havent thrown it yet but i will say this is a strange disc. Almost feels like a Force. Large fat rim and flat flight plate. I can grip it better than my predator because of the larger rim. I mainly want it to be a slightly longer predator. Used for hyzer spikes and forehands.
With the large rim it feels like a distance driver but this thing should be a glideless brick or low skip machine.
On initial looks, i would say it has to be speed 10 or 11

Very, very close to a ProLine Hellfire in feel and flight.

I honestly hadn't noticed that about the Thrasher. I can look later. Sorry for the delay.

Does not appear the the Machete rim is slanted to me. The wing is less concave than a Force, but the nose is thicker at the edge. Jives with the flights I am getting. Less (marginally) HSS than a Force, and more LSS, slightly shorter, in terms of distance.

It took 10 days to arrive from discgolfcenter since they use FEDEX.....but it arrived.

I agree with Muddyboots.

It is windy where I live, I threw it on a few holes and thought Hellfire, and then kind of thought of it as a Junior Force, and noticed the blunt rim.

Also threw a new pancake flat Z Crush and it was much faster and farther.

I have been throwing Predators and Tsunamis for years, and would never replace them with a Hellfire, this will end up like the Hellfire, just not good enough to take up a slot in an already fully bag.

I like Discraft and the Jawbreaker Roach/Challengers have been a saviour for my putting game since I have dry hands and they have good grip, but Discraft needs to make an effort, they release a new disc and do not even post a vid on Youtube of Nate Doss throwing it....
