How many discs are you fitting into that bag of yours?

Thrill(R) vs Defy(L). Flat top and looking pretty beefy. Will report back after throwing.

I do have a Nitro, but won't have time to post pics until Monday. But holding them side by side, the wings are pretty different, with the Thrill being higher shouldered, flat topped, and having a higher PLH.

The Thrill is a very OS disc. As in, the Phase category of overstable. Seeing that rim I knew it would be beefy, but I was surprised at just how darn stable it is. I couldn't do anything with it that didn't involve turning left. I threw it on a slight hyzer approach shot and it flipped over into a roller. Annys, forget it. From a standstill, I could not throw it much past 200, and that was on a hard anny to try and flex it out.

Moose, this disc is right up your alley.

I'm currently bagging a 168g Thrill. Kicked out the Fireball (sub 160's) in my case. Don't see it being any longer than the Fireball (a bit shorter, actually), but skips better and more reliably. Anyway, pairs up better with Resistors IMO.

I haven't thrown the Thrill much BH, but something like 275-290ft is where I max out with it on a flat drive. The biggest reason for bagging Thrill was its utility: FH rollers with it have saved my *ss many times on wooded holes. Short, tight FH/BH doglegs? Yep! Overhands? Better than any other gyro I've thrown. So, it's a lot of versatility in a beefy package. FYI, I haven't tried the Phase.

Your description of the Thrill-->Fireball comparison sounds similar to what I see in the Phase-->Motion comparison.

The Proton Thrill is being released soon, and I was sent a 156g to test out. It has a Plasma rim, like many (all?) of the newer Axiom drivers.
It is just as stubbornly overstable as its heavy N counterpart, maybe even more so. These new Protons are all OS. From the Defy, Octane, Catalyst, and nowothe Thrill, you need a decent arm to make these work for you.

The Plasma rim looks sick, but it is more prone to scuffing due to it being softer than the traditional overmold. So where you gain grip, you lose durability.

With so many options in the OS slot, it's hard to see where the Thrill would fit in. I prefer the Fireball (which I bag, but seldom need), or maybe a Defy from Axiom. Big arms only need apply to be Thrill-ed.
