Default Getaway

So it appears this disc never got a thread of its own.

From what I've read, it falls between the Escape and the Felon.

I ordered one up the other day, but have yet to receive it.

Any body throw one of these? What do you think of it?

I've got a Biofuzion 166g in the bag most days and also have a Lucid and heavier Bio, as well. Feels like an Escape with a higher PLH, and flies like an overstable Escape or a Thunderbird, depending on your frame of reference. Definitely a different feel than a Felon. It's a very nice disc, especially after it beats in some. Mine has lost some HSS but still has all of its LSS; I literally have never turned it all the way over, even when throwing hard and into the wind. Granted, it has so much glide that it's really tough to control in a firm headwind or right to left crosswind, but it's not going to flip over on you either.

I throw a Felon for controlled hyzers and when the wind picks up, so that I can capitalize on its relative lack of glide. I throw Escapes as my workhorse fairways. The Getaway comes out when I'm afraid I might flip an Escape, but I need more distance than a Felon.

Agreed. Excellent analysis!

I throw 166g BioFuzion Getaways as OS complements to 166g BioFuzion Escapes. Once the Getaway beats in, it flies very much like an "Escape Pro", straight with a solid fade. Keep a Felon like (low glide) disc for the wind, cause the Getaway glides so nice...

Looks like we throw nearly identical fairways, based on your sig. I love my Hatchet too, and it's in the bag probably 80%-90% of the time. Unless I'm playing a course where I know I won't need much flippy stuff, then I figure I'm fine with either a Hatchet or Vanish but not both.

Oh, forgot to mention that the Getaway is like a secret weapon for spike hyzers. When thrown high and from a deep hyzer this thing goes further than any other disc in my bag on that line. I used to struggle with the uphill-and-around-a-tree-but-gotta-finish-left shot. Then I got a Bio Getaway, which is a cheat code for that line.

I just bought a 173g Biofuzion Getaway. Seems like it fits nicely in the lineup between my lucid-x Convict and Fuzion Escape.
Just waiting for it to breakdown and become a bit more straight.

Yep, I bag the Hatchet 100% of the time. As a LHBH player with a utility-only FH, the Hatchet is an essential tool for all the left turning fairways I encounter...

I bag two 168gm Fuzion Getaways, One 170gm Bio Felon, and two Lucid Escapes. I feel like the Getaway falls right in the middle of the Felon and Escape, AS FAR AS FADE is concerned. I can get my Getaways out on a STRAIGHT line Much further than the Felon, but the Getaway still dumps really hard at the end of its flight, unlike the Escape. But, I can only get my Escapes out to 330ish ft right now, where my Getaways are a 300 ft disc for me, because of the reliable fade. Really cool flight to this disc, for what I need with wind, stability, and Fade.

Default Getaway

I've been sitting on one of these for a while, but until today had never thrown it. Took it out to the course for a couple rounds and used it on a bunch of holes that were 350'+. Fuzion plastic, 174g. Pretty good dome on this disc. Rim is a touch shallower than a Thunderbird.

Its a fine "tweener" driver. Very much like a Thunderbird in flight. By tweener I mean its right on the edge of being a long fairway driver or a short distance driver.

Very consistent flights. No high speed turn. The Getaway likes to be thrown very hard, and won't bleed right at all. Little bit of a pronounced fade. If you throw the Getaway lightly or poorly it'll dump left pretty hard and prematurely. I figure to really get this disc up to speed you'll need 350'+ power consistently. Not a disc for weak arms or new players. It also isn't a disc that likes to be finessed. I found that all my best shots with the Getaway were full power rips. Glide is good. I thought the Getaway had a touch more glide than the Musket.

Very comparable to a Thunderbird. Same speed, glide, and general flight path. Anyone who already bags (and is happy with) Thunderbirds will find the Getaway redundant. The Getaway is a stable to somewhat overstable driver. It handles wind well and I found it to be easy to dial in for accuracy. One of DD's better driver offerings, and I liked it a whole hell of a lot better than the Escape (too flippy). It seems DD is finally learning how to produce discs that actually fly like the numbers they're given.

Getaway: 9, 5, 0, 3. MAYBE -0.5 on high speed turn if you really murder it. I wasn't seeing much (if any) turn on this disc. Somewhat dumpy fade, but the Getaway will hold a straight path for most of its flight before fading. I was putting the Getaway anywhere from 350' to 400' pretty consistently. Its a disc that loves to be thrown hard. You can absolutely lean into this thing and it'll respond favorably with extra distance, but without bleeding right. I'd much recommend this driver to guys who throw DD and want something like a Thunderbird.
