My Gyro bag is usually either a N Catalyst or Plaz Wave. They both bomb but have to be ripped clean. The N Teleport is also a bomber but I barely have any business throwing it due to speed. A N Insanity gets most of US line shaping shots though.

I like the Destiny a lot, it's very similar to the King. Also like Swords and other Trilogy drivers except the Freedom. That disc is stupidly finicky and that's coming from a flippy King thrower. I need to try Shryke. Sheriff, and Terns sometime.


IMO, the Shryke, Sheriff, King, and Ballista are the 4 best long range understable discs out there now. They're flippy, but not to the point of complete uselessness. Now, if I had to go further and only pick 1 I'm taking the Shryke. I find it the most consistent. A Shryke will USUALLY exhibit some good high speed turn without totally turning and burning. Anyone who likes discs of that speed/stability needs to try a Shryke for sure. Terns are pretty close to a Shryke, but a speed slower and maybe a touch more erratic.

The Freedom is fairly useless, I'll agree there. I can get 1 450' bomb with that disc in like 20 tries. The other 19 turn and burn.

For me, it's a tossup between the Discraft I-get-no-reSpectra and the Nuke SS.

Have you tried the Infinite disc that's supposed to be similar to the Shryke? The Pharaoh I think?

Nope. I haven't seen or tried one. If I run across one I'll give it a shot. Everything I've heard about the Pharaoh has been good.

It almost sounds like what a DDX is versus a Tern. Slightly more overstable.

I-blend Pharaoh is very much like a Pro Shryke. Both are excellent.
