The Getaway flies true to the numbers. Maybe -0.5 on high speed turn. DD needs to significantly update the flight numbers on the Escape and Renegade. Both have significantly more high speed turn than stated on the disc.
You throw pretty far though, right? Like 400+ for fairway drivers? I just don't think the Escape is designed to be a workhorse fairway for people with your arm speed. I throw them smooth and controlled at 300' really consistently and can power them up to 330'. I don't think I've ever really tried to get them further than that.*** But for my form at least, I would rather start discing up to something in the Speed 11 range if I need to throw more than 330'.

BTW, agree with you on the Renegade. That disc absorbs absolutely no power. I can throw a neutral midrange with more force. It's a standstill driver or roller disc only for me. Easily my least favorite DD disc.

***Correction. I just checked in uDisc and I've measure some Escape throw over 350' during fieldwork. However, I stand by my initial statement that I prefer them in the 300'-350' range. Carry on.

^^^Dang it. I tried getting my correction in too fast and typed poorly. Meant that I prefer Escapes from 300'-330', even though I've measure throws with them over 350' during fieldwork. Typing is difficult.

I suppose I throw pretty far. I won't pretend to be Paul McBeth, but I can get a Thunderbird out near 400' on a good rip.

You could be right. Maybe I'm just throwing the Escape too hard. Thing was, it didn't seem like I was trying that hard when I threw them. I soured on that disc quick and gave up on it. The Renegade (as mentioned) was even worse. Flippiest damn thing I've ever seen.

I like fairway drivers that absorb power well. Stuff like the Getaway, Musket, Explorer, Teebird, and Thunderbird. All of those respond well to hard throws without getting flippy. My 2 workhorse fairway drivers are a champion Thunderbird and Teebird. The Teebird gives me the same flight as the Thunderbird, but about 20' shorter.

If I want something SLIGHTLY flippy I'll throw a Convict or FD. Neither of those are good in wind though.

Stability question: anyone thrown the Special Edition (SE) plastic blend Getaways, and if so, how does it compare to normal Fuzion plastic? My local shop has a few SE's left. I'm planning on going in to pick up a fresh Biofuzion and backup Fuzion Getaway, but might grab an SE for kicks and giggles instead of the Fuzion.
