Probably not going to be popular, but here goes:

Evo Platinum Wizard. It looked really nice: translucent plastic with radial streaking and somewhat cloudy appearance. Looked like awesome premium-grade plastic. However, in the hand it felt slippery and cheap, and the radial streaks are actually raised from the surface. I tried to sand it to get a little grip going, but it was tough to sand around/over the veins. After a few rounds and a few dozen throws, the hand feel didn't improve. I was glad to send it to a friend who apparently likes these. Just not my jam.

Love this thread, the fact that some enlist others favorites says it all.

Ps. Leave my River alone! It has a wonderful rim to grip and is the only disc that gave a a birdie on one of my local par 4 holes (550'). 2 shots with the beat in frost River (first turnover to get some distance around a Mando and second laser beam(OB to the left)) and a 10' putt.

Edit: finally got a chance to write about that birdie I guess...

Max weight Champion Ape. Not sure why I thought that would be a good purchase. Not sure how people throw these things. Pretty sure a I can throw my putter further then I could throw the Ape, way too overstable for my weak arm.

opinion/subjective thread for sure,

but based on my personal throwing experience

Anything Franklin/walmart obviously, exception, the putter, surprisingly stable/straight

Dragon, uselessly flippy

Nova, can't throw it, turns and burns every time(probably my Oat)

opto River, hard right turn every time (but I love the Comet?) maybe I got a freak?

anything DX that is already US,(beasts, Wraiths, Leopards, Valks etc) exception(T bird) i think the River Pro will be my new T bird once its broken in a little

now if you will excuse me, I'm off to throw my Prime Justice into a brick wall

Can't say worst, but definitely most disappointing;
Lat64 Trident, came to find out I got the wrong mold version
Opto River, had Rivers before, but this one was stupid flippy
DD Bio Thief, by far the most uncontrollably flippy disc I have ever thrown
DX Firebird, flew like a glidless Valk out of the box

Thinking about it I think pretty much all high speed drivers in DX are kind of useless at least in my experience. Putters, mids and fairways have a decently useful life but I have played a few rounds with guys who bought DX Wraith and Apes. They went to uselessly flipply so quick. I remember throwing a top of the world forehand with a two round old DX Ape and it did a barrel roll it was so understable

And if you ever run across a Lat64 Primitus you will see why they went OOP so fast too.
That's funny, there was a stack of these in the clearance bin at Next Adventure in Portland one day. Biggest pop tops I had ever seen; I imagine this is what you're referring to.

EDIT: My 2c on the worst disc I've thrown is hands down the Aerobie Arrow! No not the Epic - Aerobie somehow outdid themselves with this glideless turd of a putter.

Was there more than one version of this mold?
