Default Using an unusual brand disc

So I almost only throw Innova discs, but this weekend I won a few Quest discs at a tournament. I almost immediately gave them two my brother who is just started to get into the game, but decided to try them out first. I didn't really like the first ones, but the Inferno I really like. It's got less low speed fade then my Valkyrie and it flies really well for me.

So my question is, have you ever got a disc from a brand you've either never heard of, never tried, or never liked and really liked it?

Hubby got me a Quest The Wheel. What an odd duck (uhhhh, disc)! However, I keep it in my bag and have to admit it's gotten me out of trouble more times than I can count already.

He also has the Raging Inferno DT, but doesn't seem to like it very much.

Some of the Quest discs are all out of whack! They definitley took a different approach in designing some of their discs.

Yeah, the Inferno has a weird groove on the rim of the disc. I've never seen that before, but it helps with grip and stops good on the ground, whereas my Valkyrie will have a huge skip. So it's got its pros and cons.

i bought a quest odyssey because it floated. it is awefully hard to learn how to throw without turning over, partly because of the double lip.

I love my Rock-it. It really has some controllable distance for such a slow disc. Definitely more mid-like than a straight up putter and more putter like than a straight up mid.

Cool disc IMO.

i carry a snap whittler, i definatly would reccomed a disc like this. MEGA floaty, and just the slightest touch needed. Excellent for those under that branch over that branch shots for anywhere upto about 80ft. carves out a sweet floaty anhyzer line, in the wind well you can forget about it. the other Major plus about this disc is that its a golf legal catch disc, so ultimate converts / low power throwers etc get along really well and you can get them hooked!

I've done that with the inferno also. I really like a lot of quests discs, but i wish they were made in more types of plastic.

Also, the inferno doesn't have a groove on the rim. It has dimples like a golf ball. And this doesn't make it skip less, but more. I've had two 50' plus skips on one throw with that disc. That thing can skip like crazy if it hits right.

Really? That's strange because I could've swore it skipped a lot less. Maybe I just haven't used it enough yet.
