Great video Mike. It looked like Mike was trying to flip it around 3:15 but it didn't want much of that

I figured the Envy would be longer then the Alias after looking at the specs. Good stuff.

OK, just tossed the Alias a bit more, and it is silly straight. No turn, no fade. It just sits down. Reminds me of a Mako a bit.

How far were you throwing it with no fade? I was tossing it full power and it was straight, but there was definitely some fade at the end.

Not sure on distance, maybe 250? I was powering it up all the way and throwing with a touch of hyzer. How much fade are you seeing? Haven't had a chance to watch Mike's video yet.

Not a lot of fade, just a little fight at the end. To me, no fade means dead to where you throw it. A Pro D Zeppelin comes to mind.

I think most throwers will find the Alias to be straight-stable, with less chance to blow by the target.

Definitely agree on the last point. It's very placement friendly. Also powers down really nicely. Going to put it against the Axis out on the course this weekend.

Will do one disc round videos (Envy/Alias) at Turkey Lake T-2 this Mon/Tue! I can see Envy have good stability even with Mike C's power which is very good, ditto with Alias. My BH is pretty much OAT-less but it is my FH that needs more work to clean it up!

OK, went and watched Mike's video to see how my flights compare. My Alias is flying similar (albeit shorter) to hit tosses around the 3:10 mark. Just straight with a baby baby fade. I'm not as good as getting height under my drives, so I don't see the fade like he gets out of it later in the video.

I'll probably get a chance to play on Monday morning. Its going to be a two disc round with the Envy and Alias. I want to see how they both do in real course conditions.
