I remember when i lived in Stockholm and bought a CD that where produced by Stockholm records and made in Sweden . . .the CD was cheaper to buy throw an Webbshop in Asia than in a store in Stockholm. . thats just mad.

But the Instinct IS quite expensive compared to other "non signature discs" at least here in Sweden. . a Instinct is $5 more that a normal C-line. . .looking at some US stores it seems like it $3 more over there.

But i feel like disc prices in general is on the way up, the companys have to pay all those new big contracts

Im definitely not going to buy any disc at a 30% higher price than other similar product. It seems to me like Discmania have really messed up this release.

Higher price and plastic that gets flippy faster. I can see that being an attractive quality to some, but I switched from EMac Truths to MD3s because I like the consistency Innova plastic gives me as the disc beats in.

^is that fact or just generalisation from other Lat64 plastic? have you experienced it yourself? I have not much experience with Swedish plastic, but have read lots about this (and some people even say its not so).

I have by no means found swedish plastic to get flippy faster. I have XXXs that I'm still throwing from 2014

It's an urban myth.

The Instinct is like a longer Thunderbird for me - pretty nice plastic too.

Interesting that you disc with a narrower rim as being a longer thunderbird. must be pretty glidy

It's very glide-y. I've been throwing instincts for a couple weeks now, and I'll echo what has been said about their distance potential. I don't have a monster arm (I max out at about 400 on golf lines), but these things just keep going. I'd put them about 30-50 feet longer than the teebirds or explorers I have when thrown with similar power. I get those discs comfortably to 320-330, and I've been able to push the instincts to about 370.

Well this has me interested even though half of my bag is variations of straight to fade.

How wind resistant are they? What speed would you call them?

I love how consistent the Thunderbird is in all conditions, but I can throw neutral speed 7 fairways 30-40' farther than them on normal throws. Thunderbirds absorb power and wind so well, but they don't go all that far for me. Great disc on the course though.

Eagle McMahon made some really nice shots with the Instinct at the Beaver State Fling.
