If you run across an atomic XG they absolutely bomb.

I didn't list the Thrasher as underrated because I really don't like that mold much. Really erratic/flippy. It isn't quite long enough to be useful for as flippy as it is. For me the Thrasher was like an extremely beat in Surge.
I don't see too many people throwing Shrykes myself, and don't see any pros throwing them.

Thrasher bombs. Flippy for sure, but in a tailwind or released with the right angle, they go faaaaaaar.

I haven't thrown a Teleport, but I love the Relativity and Catalyst. I didn't put them on the list as underrated, because I don't think they are.

Both of those would be on my list of top 5 longest drivers.

+1 for the Z Thrasher (left mine yesterday on a football practice field... sad)

Add the DD Captain to the long, glide list - if you can throw it high on hyzer.

i havent heard of archon in years

i think it never got popular cuz of that vulcan top and people have tons of beat up wraiths

not a terrible mold tho

Really long, but super touchy. I've gone over 450' with the Crank SS, but it's one of the most finicky discs I've ever thrown.

Very capable of huge distance though.
