REVIEWS

Mako

The Mako is very reliable for left or right upshots. It holds angle through out flight and it's easy to throw with touch. The Mako also has great glide and distance.

Coyote

The Coyote is easy to throw and has great glide. I use it when a Roc is too much disc and my Aviar is not enough for the shot. I have two in my bag; one for straight shots and one for slight turnover.

Pig

The Pro Pig is in my bag now after playing in strong winds and lacking a stable mid-range upshot disc. I use the Pig at medium range, and also for short side arm shots. It is very stable with a strong purpose.

Mamba

The Mamba is a long range turnover disc that is great for those with lower arm speeds. It turns up and over, then fades slightly at the end for my arm speed.

Vulcan

Early test results looks good for a new long range driver in my bag. I throw it with hyzer & it comes up to flat with a long, straight flight. The Vulcan is great for a less powerful thrower like myself.

Yeti Aviar

Don't let the flat, dented top fool you. This disc is stable & the plastic feels great. I use it for short drives and hyzer shots.

TeeDevil

Very stable for less powerful throwers like me. But, I know I can throw it hard into a head wind and it will go dead straight a long ways! Very fast and the wide rim is still easy to grip.

Wahoo

R-pro plastic feels great. This is not your typical water disc. This disc flies with the best of discs. The Wahoo flies straight and slightly stable on drives for less powerful throwers like me. I’ll pull it out anytime around a water shot. If your course has water then you need a Wahoo in your bag.
