it is like a shorter comet for sure. they are very stable out to 200'. very straight but with reliable fade outta the box.

i think it was dstearns who threw one 300'+ but it was on a downhill hole. still a good throw.

I love having mine in the bag. My form isnt all that clean so I tend to turn it over when it gets past 150 feet. The more I work with it the better it gets. You have to be willing to put the work in with this disc becouse it can be a little touchy until you get used to it.

even just out to 150' they are still great, farther than that is nice but it may be easier to throw a faster putter at that point. just depends on the line and the target/green.

I've thrown one over 300, they need A LOT of height and it is NOT anywhere near reliable at that distance, but under 250 they're are very straight, I hit chains on a 250ish hole last year with one.

Just read the Mark Ellis review, anyone else surprised a Discraft sponsored player calls their baseline plastic DX and not Pro D?
