definitely picking one of these up this week when i stop into glide. sounds like my cup of tee. the photon has been amazing and its pissing off my buddies cause i added 40-60 feet on my drives. i used to be a little shorter than them now i am right there with them or sometimes out driving them! this wave sounds like it'll be even better for wide open hyzer flips that i need for the few long holes around these parts

First impressions, I love this disc. I got a 168g lavender particle wave. Played Mt Airy with it and used it(or Photon) on nearly every shot. I threw one of my best drives ever on no13 410ft,



Threw it flat and hard just off the edge of the tree in the middle of pic with a mild tailwind. It held the turnover beautifully and I was inside the outer row of trees on the up slope with about 35ft. Usually I cant quite get up that slope if the disc holds the turn or I am 60-80 left in the open if it doesn't. This disc doesnt quite have the glide of a g* tern but its pretty close. I would give it 5 glide. Big arm guys should get easy rollers and hyzer flip big bombs in a tailwind.

Yeah still dialing in the mold really but it bombs! I like it powered down and low long straight drives. Prefering the photon for more reckless D shots. The glide is up there though thats why i mentioned faster insanity kust seems to GO!

two part review

165 - Awesome so far. I'm matching or beating the distance I'm able to hit with my terns. This is super fun to throw but it definitely feels more under stable than the flight numbers I've seen.

173 - Flippy pos. I'm hoping the sunken in flight plate is the issue. Maybe I can eave it the sun or something but this disc is awful.


I'm hoping the 173 is the oddball.

why would you need both a wave and an insanity? do they do different things?

I just picked up a 173 particle wave that I intend to throw. Mine is white but doesn't look to have a sunken plate, can you post an image?

I left it under a lamp that gets pretty warm and it seems to be going back into place. I think this may do the trick.
