everyone else seemed to get lucky w/giants that would turn within a few months. none for me.
to be clear, im looking for max d headwind stable drivers.

I had two that i could rip and get a little high speed turn and then they would finish stable every time...this was after a month or two of wear (playing on rocky surface in the desert).

This tp giant im trying to beat in is way more OS. It it is really similar to my apes. I loved the first two giants I had because they acted like a boss that could handle more headwind..

Maybe i'll try a few more vip.

If that's what you're looking for, that's what you'll get. Max d in a headwind or a huge anny flex. I've had giants just as os as a nuke os, but usually they're more like longer cpd.

Of course, when I stop throwing things I stop looking around for trends. Maybe they have another inconsistent run. All the recent giants I've seen had a weird shoulder and a flat top like the elasto. Not interested.

I have a blue dommy TP giant that seems to be a lot straighter than my other giants. Its a sticker weighted one also. weighs 173 and has the flight of a new world only from using it about a month.

i know johne mccray prefers the blue tp...he says they are a tad more understable in his experience. Who knows if that's true but the one blue one i have does seem to have lower PLH (but it's so hard to tell with these discs)

Nice stamp. Definitely a wall hanger. Yeah the air has been so dead in lower Midwest that haven't had an excuse to get my giants out.

But fall is near and once it starts getting more windy the giants will be back in the bag for those long headwind type shots. Cool disc.

I'm not a Giant thrower as I've always thought that they'd be way too stable for me. Also the Enforcer already fills the very OS DD slot.

However, few days ago I found a 174g VIP Giant without a name and went to a field to test it out. It was quite beat in, but still I was really surprised to see that it was quite close to my TP Sword in stability and that thing is flippy. Thrown flat it would crash and burn, and with a bit of hyzer it would still turn over before coming back.

So my question would be, is this normal for a beat in Giant or did I just find a freak?

I feel like I've had an odd World or Giant that became understable REALLY quick. I have two decodye worlds, one is the most OS world I have and the other turned into a flip machine REALLY fast. It may be the PLH but occasionally you will find discs in the same run that behave more understable

Anyone got their hands on the Recycled Giants yet?

How did they mold up/ fly?
