Like, even firm snaps looked like early releases, because it would fade off the line so quickly. There were times where it felt like it was trying to twist in my hand to a more hyzer-y angle; trying to fade before I had even let it go.

When I lost it, I wasn't sad. That thing was useless except as a sort of sick party trick.
I've thrown several Flicks, and never seen a really brutal one. For me a Flick will actually ride flat for a bit before fading hard.

I've found the Nuke OS to be WAAAAYYY more overstable than any Flick I've ever thrown.

Interesting thing with the Flick: Those 150 Zs are beefier than heavier ones. For such a light weight disc they're nasty and glideless.

It’s stupid. Never thrown anything like it.

It seriously is more OS the harder you throw it.

I play with a kid who has a wicked arm. I bet him $5 he couldn’t get pin high. (We were a flat ~250’)

He threw, the disc dumped out early, we all laughed.

Then I bet him double or nothing he couldn’t muscle it there with big boy driver power- He cranked it, and it did a gymnastic high speed flip/smash into the grass even shorter.

He bought it from me 2 mins later haha it’s the sirens song of the Stego! Nothing about it makes any sense but once you throw it you need it.

Speaking of which, where can a guy get the armor stegos? They get scooped up super fast?

Tee Rex my dad used, nearly the same thing as an Xcaliubur was very OS when he played more.
I use a Champion Destroyer and do not get the ones with High Dome and/or Max Weight or you will need to have top power players speed on the disc. Slightly under Average dome and Lower is best.

I have a Discraft Z Xtreme. Unfortunately it is OOP. Gave it to a fella in our cub that has 450' power and he couldn't get it more than 230' before it tried to bury itself on its way to the center of the Earth. Sounds like the Stego...just so OS it generates a lot of lolz.

Huh, I must have just gotten a freak of a Flick.

Flicks are very speed stable, like the rask. Get it up to cruise speed and they hold a while. Both being quite fast also drop out of the air hard. If you have a chance try throwing that flick into a strong headwind, it will flip before a lot of overstable discs including our usually more workable OS discs like the firebird or pred.

Blake_T had a good writeup on this a long while back and used the flick as an example

Agree that the Flick isn't a very good headwind disc when you want your shot to stay firmly hyzer or flat. Flicks can go from hyzer to flipped in a surprisingly small amount of headwind.

In calm conditions the Flick is overstable enough to handle just about any shot. If there's a headwind I'll probably throw a Firebird instead.

The Rask I had was beefier than the Flick too. When that thing faded, it went down like a freaking rock. I eventually took the Rask out of the bag in favor of the somewhat less overstable champ X Cal.

I'm sure its been listed already but in my experience these were the MOST OS discs I've used
(from slowest to fastest)

-Zone - puddle top Z
-Deflector - MVP disc like a justice
-Justice

-Flare - Streamline Discs - its pretty much a FAF Firebird
-Firebird - a FAF one
-Machete - Discraft Machete is REALLY OS
-H1 - especially the original , it is stupid OS
-Flick - the discraft flick is super fast and super OS, a new Glow FLick is probably the most OS disc I've ever used

-Phase - MVP
-Energy - MVP
-Stiletto - Lat64
-Limit - MVP
(MVP has some very flat and very OS discs)
