Ive been unable to throw that K3 yet. How are K3s beating in? Straight flight without fade and dropping out of sky? At least my K2 hasnt lost its fade.
Interesting on the k3 making the rim shallower. My tiny hands love that.

Gonna try k3 instead of k1 then.

I prefer a shallower rim as well. Wonder how the baseline K3 plastic holds up. Unfortunately I've become enamored with baseline plastic that's not priced like baseline plastic.

alright, so i have been thinking about revisiting the berg,just because it feels so great and its a nice and overstable disc. i currently throw serpents,one new and one beat as well as a jokeri for the faster,short mid os disc. i feel the berg would overlap with the new serpent,even though it has less glide and more LSS. i guess im trying to justify a purchase but not sure if its a necessity.

i remember throwing my first run berg and it was really os, didnt feel versatile thrown bh so i got rid of it. are lighter k1's or k2's more workable or is the berg just that consistent among different weights?

K2 is generally less stable and yes lighter weights make it less stable. I advise to buy k3 plastic for less stable. Its far more durable than dx and the shape of berg makes it even more durable.

K2 and k1 is the most understable when the top is flat. Bubble in the puddle makes it more stable.

Picked up a K1 glow at 174g and went ahead and grabbed a K3 at 172g. K1 feels as magnificent as advertised, firm, grippy, with a bubble in the puddle, K3 is definitely grippy and flat.

Throwing them soon, hopefully the K3 will turn into a nice slow turnover thrower for me. Anybody putting with K3?

I have a K2 Berg on the way. How will it hold up in a headwind?

Decided to jump on the Berg train after loosing my money Scale. Damn, are these things rad. The feel, as mentioned earlier, is so unique and I personally love it. I now have a pretty beat K3 that is dead straight and just drops like a Berg should. I primarily use the K3 for FH due to the flat top, but all three are comfortable for both BH and FH. My K2 and K1 are both workable but def still Bergs. I guess you could say they have more glide but I think its splitting hairs. All three plastics will hold an anny for me and just flatten out as it drops, doesnt really come back per se. I use them so much in the woods and other courses around here and if I lived where there were more wide open courses, Id probably just throw my Wizs. But they just feel so nice, that my inner mold minimalist will have to deal.

It will be so steady, you'll see.

^ to PocketSand wanting to be a minimalist. I try but the Berg does one thing so well for me - short FH shots where accuracy is key. I've never used anything like it for that purpose. Good to have role players.

I've never had my K2 flip in the wind and it's got some substantial wear. But I'm still often surprised by it's lack of fade. It goes straight, slows down (not that it ever goes that fast even thrown downhill) and then drops. That is actually the specific hole/shot that keeps it in the bag. 250' with a 50' drop just rip it at the pin and let it drop in.
