I’ve gotten a few throws in with mine, and like it so far. It is less stable than my felons, but not by a whole lot. Mine is 170-172 and domey as well. I don’t mind how it feels in the hand forn backhands, but would prefer a flatter profile for my sidearm. Has anyone seen any flat ones yet?

I got 4 and one of them (feels the best) is the flattest, but its still not....FLAT flat. Its not a bad thing at all, but yeah I already suck at FH so I know I won't be able to FH this thing accurately, but that's why I have a FD3, or Firebird or Stiletto or a Thrill....flick.....haha etc, all flatter topped discs

Can someone compare these to Z Avengers? I used to throw one for a FH workhorse, not sure why but they always clicked. Dropped the Avenger when it went OOP.

Avenger was listed as 1.9 cm rim width, and so is the Anax… similar specs all around. Can I get someone's impressions and/or a nice profile comparison? TY

Ive only thrown one of my Anax's but it's way less stable than my (luster) Firebirds. No overlap with that slot. And I do not have a big arm anymore. Maxing out around 400 lately

On feel alone I immediate thought: Vulture....then, Avenger. I still think the Avenger felt the best of those 3 though. everyones different so you may have success with it, but. Idk for me it immediately jumped out as "not comfy FH disc"

Yes, predator, vulture, avenger, and now I assume Anax… not very comfy for FH at all. However, the Avenger just worked, not sure how or why.

Looking at my stack of eminently FH friendly PDs and feeling no desire to try an Anax. Domey is no bueno for me.

The vulture flies wonderful for forehand. I notice no concerns. Easiest way to get comfortable with it, us toss it, forehand

Between predators, vultures, trackers and raptors I don’t see the need to bite the bait on this one personally. I’d be curious to see what other plastic blends these get produced into though. A more stable Z could be interesting.
