The Tursas absolutely turns consistently for me. I have to second what cheese dog said. You can't crank this disc (or most westside discs). Has to be thrown smooth

Sounds like what I'm looking for. The Fkying squirrel has to be thrown semi hard, and usually ends up 20-50' past the basket. If I power down (which I HATE doing, powering down is not good for my form) then it doesn't turn right, and I can't get my putters to turn at that distance without dumping.

I just played around with a new Tursas today. Close to max weight and that thing was turning like crazy out of the box. 30* hyzer flips to flat then tracks right at 00 ft power. Barely comes back at the end.

Also, the Tursas doesn't have a bead like the squirrel, which makes it feel better in the hand (for me anyway).

I've only felt a few Flying Squirrels and they were much like a Comet in my hand -- as I recall. I do throw Comets btw.

I threw Comets for a couple years and currently throw Flying Squirrels (even threw it today). They (Squirrels) don't have beads. Comets absolutely do though.

Not trying to be disrespectful. Just trying to keep the information accurate.

Thanks for the note. I'll just say the Tursas is one of the best feeling discs in my bag.

(and I definitely don't want to start another bead/no bead discussion ... LOL)
