I turn it over for some reason, Idk why.

Yeah, I like the Colossus, but it doesn't do anything for me I can't do with a Boss, Nuke, or Destroyer. I probably won't ever bag it. Its a perfectly acceptable distance driver.

I'd bag a Shryke before a Colossus.

I don't have issues with the Colossus flipping either. Its stable enough to handle some damn big rips.

Great fh disc. Prefer something more controllable for backhand.

Just got done throwing a buddy's g* Colossus. I throw nothing but RHBH. And when I threw it flat it had a nice turnover line that I liked a lot. Probably going to trade one of my teebird3s for it. Hope that the g* dosn't beat in too fast because I've been looking for a long distance turnover disc for quite some time.

If you want another good turnover option, take a look at the Shryke. I find that the Colossus and Shryke fly similarly, but that the Shryke glides better and holds the high speed turn a little longer before fading. It also doesn't fade as sharply as a Colossus. The Shryke is easily longer for me than a Colossus.

G* does seem to hold its stability well. I've bagged the same G* Shryke for a while now and haven't noticed it getting any flippier.

I do bag a star Shryke as my wide open bomber. But you have convinced me to give the g* shryke a try for my long distance turnover disc.

Yeah, throw the G* Shryke with a little hyzer and it'll pop up and bomb. Hugely long disc.
