The Excite is a little closer to Mayhem stability than I expected to be honest. It definitely has more high speed turn, but they fade about the same. Excite goes a little further for me though.

This has been my main distance driver this winter and I'm so impressed with it as a bomber that I might drop a Ballista for it in my main bag. If the Excite is generally as good a disc as mine is I'm really surprised it doesn't get lauded much. It has just enough stability to keep going mostly straight and only flips badly if I roll my wrist over badly or a really decent wind gets it.

I agree with Mike about that. It handles wind just about as well I'd say but I find it gets more lateral movement and certainly has more glide. My max distance driver lineup lately has been a dimension paired with an excite for open bomber courses with a fresh 175 plasma mayhem, a 165 seasoned neutron mayhem and a 163 beat neutron Octane to fill the gaps.

Excites (and dimensions for that matter) just bomb. I've got a 400-450ish arm but I consistently throw those 2 discs 20-30' further than anything else I have ever thrown. The Excite is a decent roller too although that's not my forte really.

I have a video of my first throw with the excite you can see the flight path pretty clearly in it with the late moderate turn and then solid fade back at the end. It was much earlier in my DG career so I imagine it was a little nose up but it still went out around 425ish I'd say (didn't measure this throw but I measure lots of throws here and that's my best estimate).
