thanks for the mini-review.
Have you not thrown over 50' because of the stability of the disc or because you didn't have the room?

I've thrown my Beetle over 200 feet many times (haven't tried to max it out, just threw it on some ~200 foot holes). It is absolutely capable of that. It is understable, like you'd expect a catch frisbee to be, but with the right angle and spin, it goes a ways.

This. May pick one up just for fun, but would like to hear more.

I would get one if I could find the bloody bugger. No one seems to have them is stock.

The one I have is very light, a 143g, I think. When it hits the chains, it doesn't seem to have the oomph to move them. It does float for a long time. Don't think I would bag one. The Aero would be my choice over the Beetle.

Sunking has them in stock too.

I just picked one up and I love it! It's an amazing catch disc. Slow and floaty like a lid, but not as big in diameter. It's only a bit larger than my Pure putters. The Spill plastic is perfect for catch...its flexible and soft, but sleek, and the design of the rim maintains the discs rigidity enough to throw far.

After playing catch and practicing a quick wrist flick to throw it, I was throwing my Pure's like lasar beams, and it seemed like they were hauling ass out of my hand! Really cool warm up disc.

It's the perfect disc to take everywhere with you, so you never have an excuse not to practice or pick up a game of catch.

I recommend strongly to get one.

As far as I know, they all come right around that 143 gram weight. It's the perfect weight for a catch disc, although I'd be intrigued to try one around 165 if they could make one.

All righty then. Got one coming my way, just in time for blustery fall days. Wonder how this would react to a 20 mph tailwind....
