I've thrown them for a long time and find it to be a very reliable disc aslong as you don't try to start using them for every shot. The epic is only good for shats that it gives you a high probability advantage. For me that limits to 2 different types of throws that it is worth it to take my epic out of my bag. #1 straight up wide open distance where distance is more important than placement and #2 when i have to go up and over something instead of thru it and a lot of wide open area on the otherside to glide for distance. Tomohawks go farther than thumbers with any disk when thrown properly and the Epic is no different. A thumber finishes with the same fade as your backhand and should give you about the same distance with less control so thumbers usual dont give you any type of advantage unless you have to go up and over. The tomohawks however come in very handy for some one like me that gets no distance from a forehand. it allows you to rip it for distance and get that hard left to right finish. It's not for everybody but no disc is or else there wouldn't be 1,000+ discs on the market

RShope has it backwards on his original statement about gaining and "loosing" strokes.
However, he did change the entire context of the argument, when he changed it to "gaining or losing a STROKE COMPARED TO THE FIELD" - in this statement he is correct, but that is NOT how the argument was originally presented.


NOOBS! Have you figured out who is backwards yet?

Only a noob doesn't understand the difference in terminology and context when it comes to golf . Adding/subtracting a stroke and gaining/losing a stroke are 2 completely different things.

If so what do you think???

Hey, I have one in my extra bag, I actually like the disc but have found it to be unpredictable with my tomahawk shots. If you like this disc, and you throw overhand, please try the Discraft Flick. It is a horrible disc for my backhand shots, but is perfect and consistant for overhand throws.

A flick is a great over hand disc for a thumber I would think similar to my firebird. Tomahawks I think you could get more distance and predictability out of a wraith or destroyer or similar type disc. But the epic I can throw at least 50-75 feet farther than my wraith.

Not a fan of Flicks for OH because I have giant hands and they are much more shallow than a Firebird.
