Default Your LEAST favorite "new to you" disc you tried in the last 6 months

Everyone loves trying new discs, even if only in the practice field. Some discs work out and make the bag. Some don't. Some discs fail spectacularly.

For every great disc experience there are other bad ones. What is everyone's least favorite disc they've thrown lately and why? Was the disc below or beyond your power level or did you simply not like it?

I guess mine would be the DD Renegade. Its a speed 11 driver with the flight numbers of a Wraith. Problem is, the thing flies more like a Daedalus or some other ridiculously understable disc. Horribly disappointing. I absolutely hated my entire experience with the Renegade. Easily the worst disc I've thrown in the last year. Honorable mention would be the UnLace. Too flippy to do anything with.

Going to go with the Champion Shryke. 1 out of 10 throws would be incredible. Most of the time it was just too touchy. Would flip if I powered into it & would hyzer out if I backed off. It's a better version of the Tern but the rim is still too wide for my BH and it's too shallow for my FH. Most people seem to like them but I'd rather use a Pro Wraith for max distance any time.

I was underwhelmed with the s line CD2. Kinda domey and similar to Stable above, I couldn't dial in the proper release angle. Deflector was decent and does what an OS mid should do but I like the DGA Quake better.

I tried to put together a bag of all trilogy discs at one point this year and left extremely disappointed. I don't remember my exact bag, but the only two molds I liked at all were the defender and the warden and I still had issues with those. It was impossible to find a premium plastic warden and the defender lost most of its stability within a couple weeks. I couldn't believe how inconsistent the molds were and how quick their flights changed with limited use. I will not be trying anything from the trilogy line up any time soon again.

deflector was absolutely horrid and worthless and you can see it attracts a certain type of people who bag it

Yeah, Trilogy discs definitely have some issues with stability consistency. They're all over the place. I agree the plastic also seems to wear out quickly and the disc changes flight. Almost like DX or pro plastic. I like durable plastic. I don't want the discs in my bag changing flight randomly.

My bag is almost entirely Discraft and Innova. Only trilogy disc I have in there is a EMac Truth. I throw a lot of their other drivers around in the field, but none of them seem to ever make the bag.

The Shryke definitely isn't as easy to throw as it would seem. Took me a while to really get a feel for this mold. If you try to hyzerflip a Shryke with a slightly underpowered throw you seem to get nothing but a worthless hyzer stall. Obviously if you get too assertive on a flat shot the disc will flip. Its also useless in any sort of headwind condition.

I usually only use the Shryke on fairly open holes where it has a chance to really flex out without going out of bounds. Thrown properly I still haven't found a longer disc than the Shryke. I will readily agree it is touchy. I still occasionally get bad throws with the Shryke when I don't get the release angle right.

Can be really good, or really bad. Katanas are seriously the most inconsistent mold I've ever seen. I've found quite a few Katanas at courses over the years, but never bagged any of them. A good Katana will absolutely bomb, but you never really know what you're getting with one of them until you actually throw it.

Any flat Katana will probably be an overstable, glideless turd.
