Picked one up with tournament winnings today, hoping to throw it tomorrow at some point. It's got a great feel to it, not shaped like the compass at all but similarly comfortable.

Got a decostamp 174 g yesterday. I throw rhbh and max out around 350 ft. For me it feels and flies like a new Mace but with that overstable flight pattern before it dumps pretty hard. It went ~220 on a slight hyzer. My problem with the Verdict was that it kept slipping out of my hand a tad early. With the bead of the Anchor, that wasn't a problem. Will be very interested to see if it straightens out much or if it will keep the slight constant tracking to the left or if the fade will mellow away.

the anchor is an L64 mold. So it has to be somewhat different than the Mace, why would they make the same disc with two different names?

Anchor is more or less a retooled Mace. Cause the Mace didn't turn out as it should've. I think Thomas Ekstrφm talked about it in one of the release videos they did on L64 facebook.

Well they better release the anchor in zero plastic asap then. Or alternatively I guess I just buy up as many zero maces as I can until then. I hope the mace doesn't go oop because it's still a really good disc. Alongside the Ghost, it's the best Roc alternative out there, especially in zero line.

The Anchor will be released in retro plastic according to that live video they made when the discs were introduced. Pretty sure they said so anyway...

I got to throw the Anchor a few times today and I like it so far, compliments the Compass very well. Comparing it to the Mace, it's a little slower with a more round and comfortable bottom edge. I always felt like the Mace is awkwardly shaped.
