I'm really liking these for my distance drivers right now...
I've thrown many shrykes. The Mayhem to me is the same idea but the flight of the mayhem is way more reliable for me. I have a buddy that's all Shrykes and Im all about Mayhems, ive thrown back to back and they fly really similar. Good disc, but im happy with the mayhem

Interesting. Was perusing through the specifications of several DM models and noticed that the Cloudbreaker has a rim depth of 1.2 while the DD3 retest has 1.1

The same difference that f.ex the DDx and CD3 have, and where many people said the DDx feels too shallow. Hope that is not the case here. While 1.2 seems to be more common in their wide rim drivers, its worth noting that the DD2 is also 1.1 and a PD is 1.2 as outliers to that norm.

Personally I didnt have that much trouble with the DDx but the CD3 sure felt deeper. But I no longer bag either anyway.

It's the exact same mold, just molded up on another day. Tiny variations in the production process can change the geometry of a disc a little bit. Apparently tiny imperfections in the production of the disc they supplied to PDGA caused the max weight to be 174g. This resubmission of approval was just to correct the max weight to 175g. It's the exact same disc produced with the exact same equipment tho.

Or am i mixing up the DD3 and some other disc?!?

As far as I'm aware the Anhyzer top makes everything more stable - CD2 is more stable than a valk or whatever that lower wing is, PD is arguably more stable than a thundie (but not a FB), TD vs a roadrunner, etc.

Is there a single case of the Anhyzer top making a lower wing config less stable?

Also these sound pretty cool, way outside my armspeed for BH excepting into the wind, but I'm always looking for some cheater FH distance...

Eagle has been BOMBING them forehand. I personally haven't thrown any forehands with them because my PD2s are my go to but I suppose at some point I should probably try it out

Threw a stock run today. 175g, slightly gummy mild dome. Flies great! Popped up a bit and glided, finished left. Anyone else throwing these?

Waiting on my box from release day order. I hope they release some lighter weights soon. I prefer lighter bomber discs.

Don’t need any wind resistance have plenty of PD2 for that
