Ok, thanks for the help.

Both of those look like a lot of fun. Good video!

Personally really want to try the Energy. It may kick the Nitro or Phase out of the Gyro Bag if the feel is right.

It amazes me you can throw discs like this for distance. The nitro is plenty OS enough for me and is probably the first disc I've owned that I can throw farther FH than BH. The rim is just to big for me to get a good grip on at this weight(used to throw blizz apes but they were light enough that the grip was less of an issue). That and the beefiness gives me about 250ft on any kind of useful golf line BH, and that is about the limit of FH, normally. My FH is pretty weak, I can usually only throw it over 300ft when I'm not trying to, lol. I mainly do standstill FHs because I tend wrist roll really bad when I step into them.

To be fair I was a sidearm pitcher in college so a FH with about 10 degrees of anhyzer is my natural arm slot.

Have worked to get a good BH too but it's taken me years to get it over 400 with a controllable disc. The 172 Octane I have is about the most OS disc I can throw for BH distance.

Those protons are really nice looking. May have to get one when I have cash again.

"I'm starting to get into gyro. I just throw neutrons and photons, but have a couple of each."

That was a guy I played with a couple weeks ago. I think I spotted an inertia, tesla, volt, and some others, but they were all "neutrons" and "photons."

Nice video Brutus! Yeah, you crushed the 165g neutron Octane...vs the heavier proton version.

...wicked air bounce by your bud at 2:36!

Played recently with someone who said," I really like the gyro" so I replied that it was a cool effect, but which disc do you like? They say," that one, the gyro"

It was a Tangent...
