Seriously it is, in manys opinion, the most OS disc ever made. Simon Lizotte even said it is the 'stupidest' disc ever made, and his reasoning was because it doesn't "fly" like a disc is made to do.

Personally I'm a big FB thrower and the 12x FAF and Gow are both in the bag and even the Spirits with some dome out beef them.

I had forgotten about the Max and Monster but the Spirit probably out hooks even them.

Last week I took all of these out that I own and the Rask, Ape and Stiletto were all 425-450+, got the FB and XXx to right at 400 and only got the Spirit out past 375 once and that was on an anny line so steep it was nearly an OH.

Would try one but the stability of the dozen or so Destroyers I've thrown has been Boss like at the high end and almost Tern like in some runs, so I have a hard time seeing one more OS than even an Ape or PD2.

Metalflake Max. Much more stable that my Star Max. Have never tried a Spirit though.

Yeah they are very OS for a Destroyer...but not an X1 or Stilletto. I just throw a bit over 400' and I can tell the difference, so I'm sure guys who can actually make these pigs fly a little can tell more difference.

Are you flexing all of these? Or are these your distances on flat-ish shots (other than the Spirit throw you mentioned)?

I'm just wondering why a lot of these discs were made...I lose like 80-100' on drives although I'm not a huge armed 450+ guy. Do people just love these for hyzer bombs in massive headwind? Or to get any real distance does everyone flex shot them?

For factory run discs I have yet to throw anything as stable as a Nuke OS, but I have not thrown every disc on the list. From what I have heard the Spirit or H1 are probably the most overstable. I voted Nuke OS based on my experience.

When it comes to xouts I had a Stiletto that I couldn't get more than 275' out of. It wasn't even usable on windy days and it gets pretty windy in Vegas.

Probably a little inadvertently, I used to be an Oat monster but have worked on form greatly.
I've got some vids of me throwing FH some for Max D some not.

The Phase is beefy, but I don't think it's quite up to some of these at the top of the list. Given enough oomph, it'll glide out some for me before going submarine.

Oh I didn't realize these were FH flex shot discs for you...makes a lot more sense. I am more BH flat or slight hyzer release so a lot of these discs (especially X1 and Stilletto) are shockingly OS for me.
