Default Matching the Shryke for sheer distance....

OK, back on topic for a bit here. I recently threw a disc that could give any Shryke a run for its money. A Z lite Nuke SS, 161g. I've thrown quite a few Nuke SS's over the years, almost all of them Z. They tend to be on the flat side, very little dome. This Z lite one has a big dome. First time I've ever really seen any dome on a Nuke SS.

Surprisingly, this disc can be thrown hard and is at least somewhat resistant to turning over entirely Thrown hyzer this Nuke SS flips up and flexes out hugely. Glide is outstanding, and I was getting to 450' with surprisingly little effort. The flight actually reminds me of a Shryke. This is by far the best flying and longest Nuke SS I've thrown.

Discraft's Z like plastic looks like good stuff. It isn't all choppy and ugly like blizzard.

Any of you noodle arms looking for a really easy fast disc to throw might want to check out the Z lite Nuke SS.

I know I'm preaching to the shryke choir here....but today throwing my fave katanas..I threw a pro destroyer and saw to my surprise it was almost identical. Middle of fairway...same d....threw star shryke 40 ft past them...but off on the right side...tried this twice same result...light wind... But for some reason I cannot control the shrike as well as a katana or even a pro destroyer I will lose them to the right pretty much every time I throw them.. The pro destroyer I know will flip to a roller but I can get the angle as a rule to keep it straight if there is no wind The shryke I know will bomb but I know it will end up turning and not coming back.. And katona I can get to fly straight if I throw them on a little heizer. But will flip hard to rollers if I overdo it and throw flat..not good rollers either

Not being facetious nor trying to troll you in any way, but do you think some of the issue might be form? In particular, wrist roll?

I would agree....but I throw the katanas fine..and like us discs.. and throw my aviars accurately up to 300 ft..on tee.....I even throw a dx shark for similar holes that are just a little far for the aviar*downwind *... Could be oat...but the others dont flip as unpredictably...I like the star shryke..just dont know where it's going always...I m sure you're right and it's just more sensitive to an extra tug ..

With any degree of stability I’ve found the Kahu XG to be the longest disc that’s not a flip monster. I hit 450 with it on the course and 425 another two times on real golf lines. It’s a beast.

Those are all backhands btw, I throw Warhorses 450+ FH whenever.

Katanas generally have a harder fade than Shrykes. If you go right with a Katana it'll usually fight back toward center at the end of flight. Shrykes can drift right and stay there, especially if there's any wind at your face. Honestly, I can probably throw Katanas and Shrykes the same distance. The Katana gets its distance with speed/penetration while the Shryke gets distance with floaty glide and not wanting to fade much late.

BTW, champion Shrykes have some late fade. I don't find them to be flippy at all. Stars and G*s definitely can be though.

I just got a Warhorse. I'll take it to the field this week and try it. I'm definitely not expecting 450'. It looks pretty overstable.

Forehand isn't really my specialty, especially for max distance. I'll give it a go though. I'll probably throw the Warhorse tomorrow or Wed. I'll do a little write up on it afterward.

I have a nice World I need to try too. I'll take it out with the Warhorse.
