Default Has anyone thrown the breaker?

I am looking at it and wondered what everyone's thought on it is.

like it a lot as a hard throwing driving putter mostly. Medium depth, bead, flat top and a decent amount of stability. Forehands pretty good for me too.

I do not bag it at this time due to minimalism and a dx roc covering this slot. A couple in my practice pile get throws regularly.

Love the breaker. Starts out fairly overstable. If you get a Pro D, it beats in very similar to a Roc - loses the fade, keeps the HSS becomes a laserbeam. Right now I bag one all the time for all OS putting duties and flick approaches.

One of my favorite molds I don't bag. Shallow Rhyno without the thumb track (unless you opt for the Ringer GT). Plenty of similar Trilogy discs came out a year or two after this one. If Ricky had been sponsored by DGA everyone would be throwing the Breaker over the Harp.

Between the Breaker and the Ringer (pretty much the same mold), plenty of plastic options and stabilities.

Breaker is a great mold. I throw GLO and SP. Like a mini-Zone. Plenty of HSS, without being a meathook. If you are looking for glide, this is not the disc for you. Goes where you throw it and not an inch further.

this is very interesting to me. I have kind of been looking for something between, say, a rhino and a zone for FH approaches. The zone works, but I have to compensate a lot for the fade. I've been using an ESP banger GT, but that is a little too glidey in windy conditions. Might have to order one and try it out.

Yeah think diet zone. Less over stability and a bit shorter

Really good disc. I use mine basically interchangeably with my Envy. My 1st run pro-line Breaker is still really HSS and just lost a bunch of fade. My SP Breaker is really HSS and LSS but Zone-lite is still apt. These doubled as OS mids in my bag for a long time b/c they're not flippy and glide decently (compared to a Rhyno at least).

Flies like a slightly more OS rhyno, I actually bag both. Rhyno for backhands, but the thinner profile of the breaker just fits my hand perfectly for flicks. If you like to forehand slower discs definitely give it a try. Idk what it is but for some reason flicking a breaker specifically is my most accurate shot.

I have a proline that is later straight with almost all LSS warm out. And a SP line that is pretty much new. I combine them with a Zone or challenger in my approach spots depending on the course
