Phenoms took out Bandits and Patriots form my bag. A beat Icon Phenom for the Bandit and fresh Icons for Patriots.

The glows are about as stable as the blue Icons - thrown flat, they have slight turn. Touch of hyzer puts them dead straight. Glows somehow seem to have more glide than the Icons. Red Icon is the most stable I have thrown (flat release stayed straight).

Now we just need Pinnacle Phenoms...

Hmm, interesting. I may have to try one, but it would be brutal switching from my Patriots! I am pretty heavily invested in them.

I'm really hoping to do the same. Got to throw my blue icon today and really liked it. But it was in 20 degree weather so...

Can't seem myself dropping the Patriots, not yet anyways. Patty for me powers down better than the Phenom and is more accurate with get out of awkward stance throws (had two par saves with foreflick Patriots from stances and lines that I thought for sure would be bogeys). My Icon Pats have less fade than the Legend Phenom I own, so I can trust them to keep a straighter line all the way, whereas the Phenom does bring a more noticeable fade at the end. I can put a little more ooomph on the Phenom without worrying about it, at least off backhand, haven't given it all that many throws forehand.

I pair my phenom with my patriots for when I have that same tight line,but need a little more d. The gM BOA phenom is exactly how I wanted my bandit to fly. Much more controllable for me.

Phenom that flies like a Bandit . My one Bandit was US like a mofo, probably even less so than the Mongoose I have these days. I'd probably say Nemesis flies like I wanted the Bandit to fly, but then, at least for me, Nemmy isn't as US as the Mongoose (I'll throw the Nemesis into headwind without care, it's not going to turn and burn or drift right too much and still packs a fade), both are good for working on my hyzerflip.

I just found a Legend Phenom yesterday, and it's pretty flat. Initial thoughts holding it, feels like TL, and then throwing it also very TL-ish. I like it.

Necrobump for more reviews. Anyone else throwing these?

I've recently been toying around with 175g and 167g Pinnacles. I like this disc a lot. The closest comparison I can come up with is a slightly longer River. I'm not finding them to have as much fade as a TL and they turn easier/more than a TL too. Maybe it's like a seasoned TL or seasoned FD. It seems also a bit less nose angle sensitive than a River. For me this disc is a dead straight with a little wiggle 300 foot tunnel eating machine. It seems to excel at low medium power beeline hyzer flip shots that go where you throw them. I imagine that at higher power, it would probably become too flippy. Mine don't like headwinds. They really like tailwinds. The plastic colors light blue and light purple are absolutely gorgeous and I totally dig the stamp.

The Phenom is shaping up for me to be a very nice must hit the fairway disc that still gets the distance but never does anything too crazy. The Legacy description of midrange control in a fairway driver is a good one.

I think I posted somewhere else about this. I got an Icon Patriot and I liked it fairly well, though it's a bit more stable than the River (I was looking for a turnover disc with good plastic that did not become flippy over time like Gold Line Rivers).

So I tried a Phenom, thinking it might be between the TL and Teebird. And at first, right out of the box, my Icon Phenom was just what I wanted: a bit longer TL.

And then something happened. I was at the range throwing several discs in the speed 7-8 range. The Patriot was straight with some fade. The Phenom suddenly became a super-flippy disc that was turning over with the wind and against it. It was like my two Legacy discs were reversed in what I was expecting them to do.

So the Phenom had to be relegated to the box. Too bad, too; Icon plastic is really nice, and the disc felt good in the hands...
