I can't speak to the Prime eMac Truth, but the Prime Verdicts definitely wear that way. They start out very overstable, but start to develop a little high speed turn fairly quickly while still keeping a hard fade. I'd hazzard a guess the Prime eMac might be similar but with a less biting fade.

I've played a couple of rounds with a Prime EMac. It seems like it's starting to pick up some turn already, but it was also windy the last time I played. I can update as I throw it more, if that would be helpful...

Just picked up a Bio Verdict 178g from Mando's disc golf shop in Auburn, WA. Was going to snag a medium dagger too, but $30 was not going to be enough... I might expect to pay that much if there was shipping involved, but I digress... local business, yada yada.

What can I expect from the wear pattern of the bio emacs? Do they drop LSS or HSS first?

I plan to bag a 175g Lucid Verdict, a 178g Bio Emac, a 171g ESP Comet and a 175g X Comet as a mid lineup, along with a couple zones to cover that glideless overstable short mid slot.

Put 20 rounds of wear on all that, and I would probably grab another Verdict, maybe max weight and in moonshine, to put an OS bookend on the whole thing. I would consider a justice too, only if it would be comfy to FH.

Has anyone one threw the new Peter McBride Emac Truths, if so how are they feeling and flying compared to stock? Thanks in advance.

Has anyone else found the sparkle lucid Emac Truths to hold their stability way longer than normal lucid?

I've been throwing a sparkle Emac (one that was a fundraiser disc for 2017 GBO) as my workhorse mid for 3-4 months. I love the disc, but it still doesn't seem to have any of the 'new' beat out of it yet. My problem with that is that all the mids around it in my bag are wearing in fairly consistently, while just that one stubborn Emac is holding stability and creating a logjam with my Verdicts and a larger gap with my Evidences.

Is my Emac a freak or is this normal for sparkle lucid plastic? I feel like it's an even more stubborn disc than my Moonshines in various molds, and Moonshine is known for that extra tick of stability and durability.

Never noticed a difference with sparkle plastic from trilogy. I have had one in the bag for a year or so and it has broken in at the normal rate.

The Emac is a pretty superior disc! Maybe you should take your verdicts to PIAS and buy more Emacs. jk. I haven't tried the Lucid sparkle but my lucid Emacs are the bomb!

Yeah, I had always heard they flew the same as normal Lucid. But I've bagged this thing for probably 40+ rounds and it's been one of my most thrown discs during that time, and yet it still is just as stable as the day I bought it. Every other Lucid disc I've owned has starting beating in by that point.

Yeah, a fresh Emac is a thing of beauty...but so is a beat in Verdict and a fresh Verdict. Some great mids in the DD lineup for sure.

Sounds like one of those good problems.
