Been throwing the Uplink a lot lately. I originally shelved it after a couple rounds as it quite wasn't turning right as much as I hoped on lower powered shots, which I bought it for.

However, played some low disc rounds with the "dust collectors" and started to really enjoy throwing it. A lot. Has just enough stability to prevent it from being squirrely, and flew quite close to my dearly loved Caribous/Pteranodons. Its shallower profile makes it a more comfortable fit in my hand, and now I'm thinking of donating my stash of Caribous and Pteranodons...

Anyone thrown a soft uplink yet?

Does it have "extra fade" ?

The uplink has me hitting the practice field a lot recently, just a fun disc to throw and learn. Getting the right hyzer release has been tricky for me but I’m getting there. At first this was just a utility type disc in my bag but the more I throw it the more I’m appreciating it’s surprising versatility.

Well I have tried to answer my own question by getting a soft se uplink. First throws in tonight... feels great, throws kinda weird. Haha. I will wait the 3 week break in period and report back.

Currently the only word I have is butter... so smooth, so straight, less fade. It does feel like it's 10-15' shorter than a broken in one... I guess I needs to knock some rim off to stretch the lines a bit. More stable on a flat release but less stable on a good anhyzer pull. Should break in to less stable all around.

Oooh first one?! Or first soft? Either way I've seen you nice but don't remember a post.. Let me know how it works out.

I really like the uplink.. Haha I think I account for half the posts here. It drives me nuts in big wind though

I've removed my Piwakawaka for a couple of weeks to try and get around the Uplink. Bagging the Neutron Soft and starting to really, really like it. Parked a 230' hole on a nice controlled turnover that I usually just karate chop a FH Fireball at. It is usually a birdie, but the turnover felt classier

First soft one, First one was from a gyropalosa box, like them both quite a bit. They really are awful when the wind here in Iowa gets going though. Soft feels somehow smoother to me, need to throw them both back to back a bit more for a full write up.

Well I've really been enjoying my uplink rounds, new soft vs og neutron... both 177+.. the soft is really growing on me. It seemed weird at first they released it in soft so quick but it makes sense. It's a much straighter disc, less S action. I'm only at about 3 weeks of lightish usage but it started out with less fade and less hss but it really hasn't changed much yet.

My beat(ish) neutron is still the more stable of the two. Neither is a disc that gets thrown dead flat unless I need a turn. Always a little hyzer or nose up to push straight and I've been getting some great straight flip up lazers with the soft.
