Threw my tester yesterday and today, it is quite a under stable disc, kind of like a opto fuse in terms of stability. It even flips over in a tailwind, thrown high and flat I got some pretty easy turnover lines.

In a word, UNDERSTABLE. I have a 172g in orange Liquid, and this plastic blend is indeed the business. I have decent power (400’ with a Boss, just shy of that with a GL Saint) and pretty clean form if I do say so myself, and I was able to get some laser lines out to the 225-250’ range. If I tried to push out any further than that or gave it more than about 50% power, the Antidote just flipped over on me. There are three scenarios I can see this being a valuable disc:
1) New player; 2) Weak arm; 3) Bad lie resulting in restricted arm swing

It is worth mentioning how easy it was to throw 200’ froze ropes vs. how impossible it was to throw anything much further than that. It took maybe 35% power to get to its apparent stability limit, this could be pushed just a tad further with carefully applied hyzer angle and a very slow, soft throw. One hole yesterday was ~280’ straight ahead with a line of trees on the right side and wide open on the left. I though Perfect, turn up the power a little and play a really wide anhyzer line to let if float back right at the basket. So I aim about 20 degrees left of the basket, put it on about 7 or 8 o’clock hyzer angle and maybe 75% power. I had never seen such a severe release angle flip up to flat and over to anny burn so quick, barely went 200’ down the fairway but it was right in the middle just 75’ short of the pin.

The Antidote has a healthy glide, so once I figured out where the power ceiling was I was able to make it do what I wanted and hold some pretty sweet lines. I tried a couple of simulated bad-lie scenarios where I was effectively unable to use my arm and had to generate all power from the wrist out, and was able to put maybe 100’ on it this way. If they come out with a stable or overstable mid in the liquid plastic I will be much more interested, as the plastic is really, really nice. If I had to assign flight numbers I would say 5/6/-3/0.

Good flight numbers, but I haven't had any trouble getting it past 300'. Throw hyzer, high, and expect it to turn.

Is there a use for a mid that only reliably goes 200 as long as it isnt windy?

Only if you want to use it for this, but I use my current cryo antidote for upshots that i feel are too long for a putter but too short for a mid. Thats just my personal preference. The liquid antidote I just received feels great. I think it will be a good all weather antidote. Not that i am disappointed with either the prometheus or the antidote but I am anxious for the fairway drivers. Filling certain spots in bags is great and all but I wanna see this plastic put to good use.

Exactly what I was doing, would get around 300 ft before it would burn, gotta try and get it higher without losing power and see how it really shines

Is this the disc that will save the poison that is this company? Doubtful.

I neglected to mention that it was a little breezy while I was playing. Not real bad but a constant 10-15 mph that swirls a bit on that course, which undoubtedly reduced my effective distance. I can see hitting 300 with it on a calm day and plenty of room to let it drift, I just can't envision a scenario where I'd be 300 out and think "Eureka, a huge, high anhyzer with the Antidote is just what I need here!" Another case of just-because-I-could-doesn't-mean-I-ever-will.
