Horrible hand feel. I never felt like I could grip a Comet properly. Worst feeling mid I've ever picked up.

Mako3 for me. My hand didn't click with it and never got a clean release from it. If I remember correctly it felt really deep for a mid range.

Destroyer - The speed is the main issue for me with this mold. I don't get any gain in distance from jumping past speed 11's. It's not hard for me to find really OS Wraiths so I just don't bother with the Destroyer. It's completely useless for me BH.

Roc - The flight & speed of the Roc are great but the big bead just wrecks it. I totally understand the love for this one but I'm Buzzzing all day. My first several years playing in Eastern NC all I heard were players talking about 'beat in Rocs'. It was always annoying hearing about this open-ended spot where a disc (dx or pro) was supposed to be worn into. I still don't throw base plastics to this day.

Tern - I could get an incredible flight out this maybe 1 out of 4 throws. It is just too thin & a little too squirrelly. I can throw lighter weight Wraiths just as far & much more consistently.

Envy - I usually don't mind microbeads but it got to me on this mold. I can't remember if it was a microbead or just an odd feeling at the bottom of the rim. Good flight though.

Luna - As a putter I just don't like it all. Funny that it's so similar in design to my favorite putter ever (Roach) & I didn't click with it. It feels much thinner & the stiffer plastic just isn't for me. Regular Jawbreaker is much better.

Aviars. Don’t really care for them. Blasphemy, I know.


Also not a big fan of Rocs.

Roc - not comfy in the hand.

Leopard - the rim is just so small. Shallow and thin.

Gator - worst feeling disc in the hand of all time, probably. Don’t know how people throw these.

Harp - too deep, and the vertical inner rim doesn’t help.

I’m sure there are others. I’m picky with hand feel, in short.

Also Wizard. But not because of putting. Felt great for putting, beefy feel for backhand. But I couldn't flick it. I can flick every other disc I own. Polecats, Putt'rs, ultimate discs, every other putter I've tried. I don't know if it was the rim shape or what, but something would catch on my finger and the release would be terrible. As a predominantly forehand player, a disc I can't flick is a no go.

I like the Voodoo though.

I tend to like discs that others hate, rather than the other way around. That being said:

Eagle - people around these here parts love 'em, but I've never had any luck with 'em.

Aviar P&A - another one that is popular but I never saw why...

Wizard - I don't hate it, but i never clicked with it, and it wasn't for a lack of trying. Just too brickish, i.e. not glidey enough for me.

Firebird, Destroyer - people love 'em and they sell out the wazoo, but they don't work well for me because of their overstability.

I hate discs with gigantic beads or sharp rims. Being the Discraft fan I am there are several in the DC lineup I cannot stand: Comet, Predator, Wasp, Anax and whatever that latest mid McBeth is rocking - can't stand any of them. Then there are the lid putters like the Rattler. Holy crap do I ever hate the grip on that thing.

They're all great discs I'm sure I just don't like them.
