I liked the plastic in the new Swirly Glo MJ Comet so much that I ordered a Val Thrasher in it. Now if it will only get here.

I picked up a brand new tourney stamped Ti Thrasher out of a clearance bin at a tourney last weekend and threw it last night for the first time. I was very impressed. I'm an older guy (44) who doesn't get much distance (around 300') but this disc added at least 25-30' to my drives. That's never happened before and there's no way I'd have ever tried it if I hadn't won some funny money and saw it in the bargain bin. I've never once heard anyone mention this disc in person but I'm going to be ordering a few more of these for sure.

There are a couple variants of the mold. One has decent HSS. The other likes to turn and float. I loved the latter. It would turn from a slight hyzer and just hang out for a lot longer than I expected before fading. Sounds like you have one of the latter also. Great mold!

I have one with the decent HSS in Z plastic. I beat it into a great hyzerflipper then lost it. It was one of my first drivers and BC of the stability I thought it was a good choice (but it being the HSS ones) anyway great disc before I lost it but it doesnt do anything more than a Valkyrie for me.

Considerably longer and a bit less stable than a valk for me. Probably my longest disc but I don't bag it often. It's generally windy around here.

It's longer but youd expect that with it being a sp. 12 vs. Sp. 9. I was referring to what the valk does for me moreso than the length. My thrasher was only abou 20'-30' longer max for me anyhow. Star valk for flippier duties. Champ valk to always hook up.

I prefer the Champ Roadrunner in its sweet spot. I just have more control with them. If Thrashers were consistently the type I like things might be different.

Do we have a consensus in ranking thrasher plastic stability? I have a cryztal sparkle thrasher and I assume its more stable than other plastics.

Cryztal sparkle, glo, z , bigz, esp, x?

Going to give this mold a second chance to compete with my Terns. Bought a 165 ESP and a 162 X for downwind drives. May get to throw them tomorrow.

Fair warning, that 162 X is going to be flippy. From my experience even in a tailwind it will need some hyzer. Nevertheless, the Thrasher has been good to me. Always in the bag.
