The phenom is a great disc. The icon Battle of the aces phenoms seem to be understable, unless you get a Legend BoA.

The first run icons are solid straight flyers similar to the flight of a TL..

The first run pinnacle phenoms fly like the first run icons but I prefer the feel of the icon plastic.

I'm really liking my two Pinnacle Phenoms. I am pairing a 174 aqua with a 167 light purple and is a great pairing. The 174 is really straight and will hold a really long push hyzer or a very tight S when released flat. The 167 is a straight pipe hyzer flip machine or long controlled turnover disc. What I really enjoy most about this disc is in the woods with the incredible mellow fade at the end of the flight. It's just a great fairway driver when you really need to control your landings in tight places. The Phenom reminds me a lot of a worn in S FD or a nicely trashed old star Teebird but right out of the box.

Interesting. This is what I wanted the patriot to be but they need serious working in before they will turn and hold the turn when thrown from a slight hyzer, imo.

Totally, the Phenom starts out more like what I wanted the Patriot to be in the first place. At least for my 300ish feet of power. The Phenom can hold a very nice controlled turn and fades a bit less than a Patriot on a straight shot. But by no means would I consider the Phenom to be "flippy". It's just plain stable and takes the line.

Interesting feedback on the flight ratings. I have heard that the Phenom is rated -1/2, does that seem right or is it more understable as others have posted?

I put my max weight pinnacle at 8/5/-1/1 and the 167 pinnacle at 8/5/-1.5/1

For comparison, I put most new VIP Stags at 8/5/-1/2.

Agreed. My Icon Phenom is my goto laser, even more so than my Patriots. But my Pats are finally breaking in so that may change soon.

Is the Phenom more of a tweener fairway/ control driver or more of a fairway driver?
