I keep wanting to gush about my new Q-OLF, it's a really nice disc.
Its kind of like a faster Eagle X.
It flies kinda like a Wraith for me, but it grips like an Eagle. Its easier for me to get a good clamped down driver grip on an OLF than a Wraith.
I huk'd it with some OATy anny into a relatively strong headwind a few days ago, it started to turn toward the lake, but even with a gust, it came back.
Its made the bag, with only 11 other discs in total, which is low for me.
I wanna try an S now.

I haven't read the specs but the astra seems identical to the archon. How similar is the teedevil compared to the quasar?

The Quasar has a max width rim (2.5cm), so I think it has the same bottom as the Ape.

I've said this for the last few years myself. My SOLF I can throw on an anny, and it will hold that line about 100' or so, then straighten and fly, and then ALWAYS fade/hyzer at the end of the flight. When released flat/level it will fly completely straight, then hyzer hard at the end. It's a very predictable disc for me, and the distance is very good as well. I've had several opponents ask me what disc that was I threw after making a good shot, and when I tell them, or they see it, most of the response back is "I've never heard<seen> that disc before"
This is also a very good wind disc, just stable enough to not get blown all over the place, well, at least for me anyway!

What I really like about my Quasar is that it doesn't flip at all for me, but if I give it a slight bit of anny it can hold it. I've been throwing it slight anny into the wind and it has been getting big D on a long line that always comes out in the end.

How many of you tried the QMS or MS Aurora...I have a lot of acquaintances who feel this is very similar to a ROC...they call it a Shark/Stingray combo...

I love Millenium discs...My Sirius JLS is money...

I shifted away from millenium when i first started because their naming system was confusing to me. After the intial disc learnig curve was passed i never went back and checked again. It makes sense to me now, but there was so much info to take in that i skipped it at the time

I'm looking at it now, but am happy/comfortable with my bag too...

I think millenium's naming system is one of the easiest to understand, but suffers in marketability because It's not named after cool monsters like the destroyer, boss, orc, wraith, etc.

There's probably a lot to be said for this. I'm better with names/words than numbers/achronyms. It's like bmw's, i know those #s are better and more descriptive than taurus/mustang/camaro... But it's so plain and blah that i look for the sexier names. Like el camino!

It's all that programming to be a consumer, i value flashy lights and bright colors over functionality and practicallity. I'm kidding, but i wish it was less true

I've thrown the MS in Millennium plastic, and it's very similar to the MD2. The first run P-MD2's were just about identical, except for the +core of the MD2, the premium and newer P-Line MD2's have a different top though.

From what I've seen my new MS turns a bit easier than a P-MD2, and also has a tad more fade, and when it turns it's faster and more sudden than the MD2. I'd attribute this to the MD2's plus core, which makes it a bit more gyroscopic and gradual in it's movements. The differences are small though. And if I were to make guesses judging by the differences FR P-MD2's (+core MS) and the new P-MD2's (different top, blunter nose), the MS will develop more turn faster and isn't as good in headwinds as the MD2.

QMS would probably fly more to my liking, but so does a nice C-MD2. A good disc, but I prefer the MD2.
