More torso/legs-less arm. After I almost had to have rotator cuff surgery, I revamped my throw, and even though I am a bit older than I was when injured, my arm/shoulder never hurts anymore, and I am throwing farther as a 53 year old than I did as a 48 year old.

Next time I throw a star Shryke in the field I'll bring out a Hades as well. What I can tell you now is that the Hades has more high speed turn than the Shryke. Other than that they're fairly similar.

I do agree with the comment that Shrykes tend to be more consistent in terms of high speed turn. Usually -2. Hades' can be anywhere from -1 to -4, as mentioned. I generally find Hades' flippier than Shrykes.

I like one good throwing session a week. I have all sorts of various discs, so it's fun to compare them.

Next one will probably be star Tern vs. star Shryke vs. ESP Hades. I might even mix a Crank SS in there.

I've had to limit throwing a bit lately. It's too damn cold here to go throw as much as I'm used to. It hurts the body. The Hades reminds me of a Crank SS, and I'd like to see how they compare head to head.

My comment was a bit tongue in cheek. After a round where I'm trying to throw hard almost the whole time (which pretty much only happens on long, open ball golf courses), I find my right hip, right knee, and tendons in my wrist feeling the most fatigue. Sometimes also the three smallest toes on my right foot. I'm sure that means I'm doing something else wrong, but my problem is definitely not strong arming.

It's just a common saying, ya know? Throw until your arm falls off. You've never heard anyone say that?

I grew on the sore legs comment. Too many hard backhands and my knees and right hip are knackered.

I'd say they're probably pretty similar, though a Hades is more like a Tern than a Shryke IMO. Shryke will probably go further but the Hades will be more consistent distance wise. All the recent Shrykes I've recently seen/thrown have been massively US but so have most of the Hades (though the flat ones do have good stability and distance). Domey Star is the best Shryke, flat Champ is the best Tern, and flat ESP is the best Hades from my experience.

I feel the same, and it's worse if I throw in the cold. My hip and right knee get achy if I throw a lot in the cold. I have far less trouble in warmer weather.

I'm old....

I was smashing yesterday. I threw great. My hip and knee are aching today. I probably won't try to throw again until next week.

I know I had a couple near 500' throws with a Katana and Excite. That in addition to all the Sword and Hades throws.

Yeah, next week I'll do Shryke vs. Tern vs. Hades vs. Crank SS.

I have 5 Hades', and all of them have at least some dome. No flat ones. I've never liked flat Terns or Shrykes.

I’m not terribly old, just in my 30s but with as many injuries as I’ve had it’s worse than it should be.

For me backhand is far worse than forehand. I can throw 25 max distance BH throws and feel dead. Forehand I’m probably good to closer to 40. You are dead right that cold makes it worse.

I only throw forehands on the course, and even then not very often. Backhand is my main throw. I only throw short forehands where I need a hooking shot around an obstacle, or to avoid trouble on the left. I usually throw the Discraft Flick for those.

On a good day I can rip off over 100 hard backhand drives without issue. Yesterday I threw in like 38 degree weather, and I'm feeling it today.

Yesterday I did over 100. Interestingly, my 2 longest throws of the day were also the last 2. It takes me a while to get going backhand. My first 20 throws I might not clear 360'. Then, it's like a switch goes on and all of a sudden I'm at 425'. Later, I'll start clearing 450'.

I can see now why pros do lots of warmup/practice drives before they play on the course. Lately I've been going out and playing without a warmup. It's affecting my overall distance on the course. The cold weather (as mentioned) doesn't help at all either.

I'm 39, FWIW.....
