Got a vip 171 world. I fell it needs to hit some more trees etc to break in as it is fairly straight fade and sizeable skip. Not much glide I have found recently that it makes a wicked roller disc. I know that my arm is not fast enough to get the disc flying up to its capacity(I think I am about a 12 speed arm) not going to give up on the disc as its shown me some sweet flight. I am in the process of upgrading my discs to lighter plastics( air,blizzard) any difference in the air vs vip plastics.

Possibly not much less stable if you check out this video. EMac isn't shy about saying if a disc isn't stable enough for his power level, and this one seems pretty straight still. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EfNP48v-Lvc

I've had a VIP World for a few months, has the usual wear in that time, and it's still HSS = 0 with almost no change to it. Some people say their Worlds aren't as stable, and I have thrown one that is HSS -1 and it was actually fresher than mine...so it may take quite some beating if you got a stable one or don't have the arm speed. I'd probably recommend going to a different mold like a Sorcerer or King if you want mellower, although lots of Kings seem pretty flippy.

Define "tighter line" - are you looking for little to no turn and little to no fade? Do you hyzerflip or release flat? Can you throw with more than enough power to make a World your roller disc? Are you a torque (OAT) monkey? What maxD molds do you already enjoying throwing?



The King is one of very few molds I don't know much about

Does anyone have a profile pic of the World?

I traded for a CFR world, but it looks and flies just like my King.

I have found more variance in plh on the high end in TP. My most stable (best in the wind) world is a TP. the lowest plh worlds I have seen are vip. On average they are pretty close.

When I am talking tighter line I mean less turn on a flat release. I can FH the World into the ground and get a good roll out of it but I would probably use the Torrent if it came down to those two for that roll.

I have a pretty clean release (especially BH) but my FH release might be a bit susceptible to OAT. However when it comes to distance my FH outperforms BH 8 out 10 times - there are a couple of discs that simply respond better to the cleaner BH release.

I throw a variety of maxD S - OS molds - Nuke; Nuke OS; Force; Torrent; World... I do not throw a lot of US offerings as I flip over and change releases rather than try to carry another continuum of discs for pure driving.

Yeah I feel you... the longest throw I have ever tossed on the course was with a VIP HukLab stamped World. Lost it within a month on a water course and I have never found another one that was even close.

I threw my Bright Green 169g TP World so far the other day it went out of site and I thought it was lost. While walking down to look for it in the fairway a few minutes later about 500 out the strangest thing happened. I got conked in the head. WTF, I threw it around the World and hit myself in the head!

171 gram elasto world shows no turn and big skip at 415' power. Tempted to try a tp to see if its more workable.
