So...What's the word on people's experience of the recycled giants? More OS or US? Beat in fast to distance bombers? How are the flying for everyone?

Threw my new 170g recycled giant today. My worlds may start finding themselves out of the bag. The max distance I throw on the course is 400'. I was throwing this giant just as far as my worlds. I'm sure TP and VIP giants are generally more OS than the recycled from what I hear. The giant was flying the same lines as my fresh 170g TP world. Where the world has more speed, the giant makes up for it in glide. I would say this flies like a 13/5/-.5/3.5 for me. Very controllable and workable. I'll probably now be picking up another recycled, a TP and a VIP to cover all my shots. With how recycled breaks in, this giant will probably be a nice turnover in the next year or so. It already can hold a nice turnover for a good amount of its flight before panning back at the end. Of course I also have to mention that, while the worlds were very comfortable in my hand for a max speed driver, the giant is even more so. That 1 cm makes a big difference.

Where are these Recycled Giants? I looked at 3 online stores and didn't see them.

Infinite Discs still has a few. Not the greatest colors,though.

I got my 2 from dynamicdiscs.com. 167-169g are in not the greatest colors (green and ecru, which ended up being a greenish brownish swirl) and 172-174g are in orange.

Just a little update on the recycled giant. This thing is amazing. After a few rounds of use, I can confidently say that at 400' flight ratings would be a 13/5/-.5/3. They are not only taking over my regular distance shots, but they are also stealing from my max distance shots that I use the world for typically. On the course today, I threw my world on a hyzer flip S shot out to 400', have to use a bit of lateral movement...the giant I threw on a flat pull, giving it a nice tight S, and still going out another 15' past the world. I like being able to get more distance on tighter lines with that extra glide. And of course the fact that they still hold up to wind much better is a plus. Sorry worlds...you may slowly start finding the shelf.

Edit: I'm very curious how the cutlass will compare.

Bump

Really have been liking my Recycled Giant. Have been reaching for it a lot over my Trespass so far this summer. Don't think I'm quite ready to drop the Trespass for max d, but who knows in a couple months.

I will be stocking up on Recycled Giants and pairing them with TPs.

Anybody throwing Elasto Giants?

I have really fallen in love with a couple of freak OS VIP Giants(thanks BroD) and the Elasto plastic seems to be slightly more OS in general. Is it beefy or nah?

The only Elasto Giant I have tried was insane OS. So OS for me I can't evaluate it as more or less than other beefcake discs. I know you have a big forehand so you can probably tell more variations in stupid OS stuff. But this was like 13/3/+1/4, like the beefiest Enforcers I have tried or stupid OS Destroyer.
