The Giant rim feels much smaller than the 2.3mm, it feels closer to a boatman/renegade in width. I picked up a 170 pink VIP with finnish stamp, partially because it looked awesome, but mainly just because I didnt have a beefy distance driver in the bag. Today it really paid off, as we had sustained winds of 20+ mph with gusts of 30. Escapes were basically useless except in the tailwind. The giant got a lot of use, it laughed when i threw it into a headwind and was exactly what I needed. On the last hole, listed about 500 ft, we had a side wind coming from the right, and I threw the giant on a huge anny distance line, and put it within 60. Easily the longest throw Ive ever made. Will definitely be picking up a TP one to break in and try to make my main distance driver.
I'm glad you saw the light. I really think that if more people had tried this disc it would be way more popular.

I have a seasoned TP that just straight up crushes. I love giants and I just got a sick batch from pipedreamtoys.

The VIP's are noticeably more overstable straight out of the box so a TP should be a great start!

I find that I can't decide between ESP Forces and VIP Giants for my OS Distance driver.

Been having success with both- And while I can't be sure, I think the decider will be whether or not I can live with the current production ESP forces being slightly less stable than my first run.

Tough decision between the two, really...

I love the TP around 170'ish . Makes it a little more manageable right off the bat. But if you want it for head winds, max weight VIP's are a thing of beauty.

Bringing this thread back.

I threw Wraiths exclusively as my distance drive, (I never gelled with destroyers) I finally threw a giant and it was the more overstable wraith I always wanted. The grip feels almost the same as a wraith, maybe a tad larger but still just as comfortable.

I got 2 168 TP's that are pretty darn straight with a hefty fade and 1 168 Vip that has -1 turn or so. I really like all of them. I don't think I'll be able to take all the wraiths out just yet but hopefully as the giants beat in they will hold that turn longer and hit the same shots as my wraiths. And the glide is out of this world.

World is less overstable and has a larger rim.
