REVIEWS

Krait

I like the GStar Krait because of its reliability into a headwind and predictable fade.

Daedalus

Brand new, this disc can fly straight and far without requiring any time to beat it in. Released on the right angle it can handle my full power. I enjoy discs like the Daedalus that are easily replaceable, particularly for shots where losing the disc is a possibility.

TL

I have a carry both a new and beat up Champion TL. The new TL I use in windy conditions and to throw flat or slight anhyzer, for a nice S turning shot. The beat TL I throw for long hyzer shots and flick shots. I use it all the time.

Yeti Aviar

The Yeti fits perfectly in my hand. I like how the middle of the disc dips down. Comfort is key when I am hitting putts.

Firebird

Until recently I had never had a disc like the Firebird in my bag! I throw it hard and flat and it still fades hard at the end. It is my go to disc for certain situations and I am pretty sure it has saved me a million strokes! I also use it for getting out of trouble shots like a thumber, tomahawk, and a flick disc from an awkward stance. I love it.

Atlas

Brand new, the Atlas is a nice, straight-flying mid range disc. I am working it into my bag to compliment a selection of Rocs.

Mamba

The Mamba is super fast and understable. It doesn't require any beating in. It's a perfect hyzer flip disc for long distances.

Katana

The Champion Katana went right in my bag brand new. I throw it hard, with a slight anhyzer angle, and low. When it hits the ground it skips really far which I like. I also use it for most of my drives into a headwind.

Wraith

I love the Wraith because it can handle any inconsistency in form, while still producing an accurate and far shot.

Tern

The Star Tern went into my bag immediately and I now carry two of them. It is a great disc for throwing uphill and hyzer flip. It also holds a nice anhyzer line.

KC Aviar

I like the smooth feel of the KC plastic. This is a good summer putter when it's hot and your hand sticks to other discs.

Leopard

The GStar Leopard is a good, straight flyer with a slow fade at the end of its flight. It is extremely reliable and very grippy in the GStar material.

Pig

The Pro Pig is nice and flat with a beefy rim so it feels great in my hand. It has perfect stability for approach shots both backhand and flick. The Pig made it into my bag immediately.
