Get an Electron Volt, and go play 3 rounds with it.

Boom - there is your beat Escape.

Have you thought about a Spin? You may as well just give in to the need for plastic and get both. Haha. I found the Anode / ion combo a little redundant myself I rode the Anode train for years until I got an Envy.

But for the Relativity and Tenacity, I've seen reviews and comments all over the board in terms of an expected flight. There are even conflicting reviews in terms of which is the more stable of the two; at the same time, there are reviews that suggest there's a huge difference with one being extremely understable in early portion of flight. Some say Relativity was close to Teleport; others, it's extremely understable. I'm guessing it's primarily related to different abilities of the reviewers? Anyone else throwing those two and able to add clarity?
Basically, and this is from experience, if you are not throwing over 400 feet, you are not going to see the advertised flight path from any disc in the teleport class. If you are throwing 350 and want to throw every drive at 100% and sacrifice accuracy, you might get an extra 20 to 30 feet. I personally throw the insanity class further and more accurately than the teleport class because disc speed and arm speed match.

Yeah, my experience as well really, but I remember Mike C saying that even powered down that the Tenacity or Relativity (or both?) were getting great distance. It looks like from reviews online that guys without "big arms" are really digging them. Ludicrous speed understable disc always sounds fun

Tenacity and Relativity are not in the same speed class so you shouldn't equate those. Tenacity is 23mm, Relativity is 24.5mm. Basically, the Tenacity is closer to a Destroyer or Prodigy D series width rim (I know Destroyers are supposed to be 22mm, but measurements show that most are closer to 23mm). The relativity is closer to a Boss or Katana width rim. That may not seem like a huge difference, but my experience (and that of a lot of other people I know) is that I get a lot more consistency with Destroyers than Bosses at my ~400 feet of power.

I see lots of guys on courses throwing high speed discs--and hear them talking about how much they like them--without any great distance involved. They can throw slower discs the same distance--I've watched them do it--while burbling about how much better the faster disc flies. I always take their claims with a grain of salt or two.

the shock is the most used driver in my bag for most holes up to 370, anything longer and a vanish/wave comes out (i get those out to 360 to 380ish, i use a football field for distance ranges)


still havent found a useable overstable distance driver for windy days yet.
