Has anyone been able to do a real comparison between one of these and a Mortar?

The one Anvil I’ve thrown is more overstable than a Gator/Mortar/Zone, but less overstable than a Justice.

Full-power forehands will turn it over, but not as easily as a Gator/Mortar/Zone, while I can lay into a Justice as hard as I want without it turning.

Recently got a tournament Anvil. Love the plastic and the reliability. It’s like a Zone but longer and has more of a constant fade rather than a dump at the end of flight. I’m just hoping that the Swedish plastic doesn’t break in too fast. Does anyone know how these hold up in the long run?

I have an SE that I use in summer and a VIP Proto that I use in winter (because the SE is a pale blue and likely lost in snow)

I don't have heavily wooded courses, and I mostly use the Anvil on approaches

I've had mine bagged since they came out (not sure how long that is...a year, probably 2) and they don't show any HSS or LSS change yet.

The SE might be slightly straighter than when I started using it...but it was straighter (as in less HSS and LSS) than the VIP in any event

the Anvil is great, but I like the Justice slightly more. I throw Bards as my main mid and the feel of a Justice is so close it makes that a great pairing. The Anvil I have is a bit domier and in between the Bard and Justice stability wise. If I threw a Truth or other headless mid, the Anvil would probably be my go to.

The glide is nice and they can go longer than you think!

"headless mid" lol, that actually pretty well describes the Nikko BT hybrid Anvil I just got... Its like all wing, super high PLH and nothing on top of that. Havent thrown it yet but it surely it one of the flattest discs I have ever seen (i dont count puddle-topped to be "more flat" than a board flat one)

I just picked up one of the Nikko BT-Hybrid Anvils and am waiting for a nice day to go out and give it a throw. Excited at the possibility that it might kick the Harp out of my bag.

Definitely a fan of the BT-hybrid plastic though. For me it kinda feels like the old zero plastic Lat had a while back, but its the literal perfect blend of grip and rigidity for what my hands like. May have to pick up a back up

The Nikko BT hybrid Anvil is the shiz. Parked all my spike hyzer approaches today. Sticks really well. Will very likely get bagged and oust the Gator.
