Default Discmania Tactic mini review

So, with two rounds played so far I thought I would share my thoughts on Discmania’s Tactic, specifically the Eagle McMahon Razor Claw edition.

For reference, I have thrown Zones, Pigs, and Harps but have pretty much stuck to Harps for the past couple of years.

As far as the profile of the disc and how it feels in the hand it is closest to a Harp. It is slightly shallower than a Harp and the Harp has a thicker, blunter edge.

Here are some bad cell phone pictures. The Tactic is pink and the orange disc is a tournament plastic Harp that hasn’t seen much use.









As far as the flight compared to the Harps I usually throw I found the Tactic to be slightly more overstable with less glide. Not quite as beefy as a Zone but a very similar flight to my flat top Wysocki Pig. Dialing in the distance on my throws was easy and since it feels very similar to the Harp in my hand it was easy to put the right angles on my releases.

I don’t throw forehand much but I can say this seems to throw better for me than the Harp. Possibly the slightly more shallow rim comes out of my hand better?

I’m not a big arm player and typically use these sorts of discs for approach shots in the 100 to 250 foot range. I will say pushing this to 250 was more difficult than the Harp probably due to a little less glide and a bit more stability. I did have one of the young big arms that I play with throw it a few times and even he couldn’t get it to flip up or turn. It just holds the line and goes as far as you throw it.

Overall, I’d say if Discmania wanted something along the lines of a Zone/Harp/Pig then I think they nailed it.

Kind of looks like a premium Sinus minus the pads. Wonder if they used any of those mold bits?

I’m not familiar with the Sinus but being a Trilogy disc I have to think it’s a hodgepodge of some kind of existing molds. Maybe.

Not sure how to take this now that some of the Discmania plastic is coming out of Sweden and China and isn’t made by Innova. Maybe whatever a five-ology is?

As far as the flight, I think the glide (or lack there of) is about the same, the high speed stability is about the same, but the Zone has a touch more low speed stability and fade.

If you’re wanting a physical comparison I can dig a Zone out of my stash and try to get some pictures later.

I haven’t thrown my Zones in a while so if if my recollection of their flight and my comparison of it to the new Tactic is a little off don’t hold it against me.
