Me either. They fly like a rock when I fling them. Much like a Boss does.

The Boss and Nuke might very well be some of the best plastic made in the last 10 years...

You're not getting enough snap and/or arm speed then. When your arm speed and snap can match the speed of the disc, it will be the longest disc you ever threw. My Star boss recently reached the break-in point and now it goes a mile perfectly flat without turning over w/ just a slight fade at the end. I also recently brushed up on my technique so I am getting more snap, which might make a difference as well. I can't throw the ESP Nuke without turning it over unless I use a hyzer release.

Also, start with an R-Pro Boss around 160 they are much more understable than the Star and break in much more quickly as well.

I think they come broken in...

Forget the R-Pro, and pick up a Pro I'd say. That way, you DO get to break them in, they start off a little less stable than the star/champs, but will outlast the R-Pro's without you having to worry about hitting two trees ever.

I like the fact that the picture in the first post in this thread not only has a ton of Z NUKES on the table but also a hand with cash in it ready to purchase as many as they possibly can with the few bills that are in that hand.

Purple seems like it would be a nightmare to find, I think I will get something a bit brighter, like the neon pink, just as soon as I figure out that I really need a Z NUKE. That might not be until a wear out a few ESP NUKES though.

If the Z Nukes are more stable than the ESP Nuke I'd be interested. As it stands I don't think I could use them. I throw Destroyers because they can bomb both FH and BH, and while I can (usually) control a Nuke BH it just turns and burns like a beat to hell Leopard if I try to crank one out there FH.

I have one of those purple Z Avengers.
I don't throw it because it is too hard to find if I throw poorly.
Sigh, doesn't like dark purple discs...
