I got to throw the anchor a little bit yesterday, and I was actually quite impressed.

I didn't have much time, it was maybe 20 degrees and snow on the ground, and almost dark, but I got maybe 10-20 throws in.

With 250 ft. of power thrown flat, it stayed flat for most of the flight, and gently glide-faded to the ground. About 230 straight, and then another 30 ft of soft fade, ending about 15-20 ft off the thrown angle.

On an anny with the same amount of power, the disc stayed on an angle for half the flight, flipped back to flat, and gently glided to the left, maybe 5 feet off the given angle, 260-280 feet.

On a hyzer, the disc did not flip up at all, but didn't dump either. It held the hyzer all the way to the ground, all the way to about 230-250 feet.

Hope this review helped, maybe I can post some profile shots later.

Hole 10 on the Final Round of the Aussie Open confirmed my suspicion that Ricky is indeed throwing the Anchor out there. It's the bright orange midrange.

I was just looking for the link to put up here as I noticed the same thing. Here you go:

Ricky seems to like that disc as he was throwing it a lot. Very OS it seems, more so than a Roc IMHO. Just look at hole one drive:

Yeah I noticed early on that his midranges drives were way more OS than a Compass should be, figured there was a solid chance it was the Anchor but never caught a clear shot of it. Interesting that he and Paul are both using brand new molds for a major tournament.

Brand new molds that they've both been throwing for a couple months at this point. If they do the job, no reason not to use them.

That orange mid Rick threw in the video looked to me like it had a Dynamic stamp on it.

edit: Actually, looking again I think you are correct.

Anyone thrown the retro anchors yet? Super interested in these even though I'm liking maces too. How are they flying for you? Comparisons to rocs/ghosts/etc?
