A friend of mine was talking about some threads he read on another website about a new Discraft Disc called a Nuke. I found some information talking about how the mold was aprroved on 10-31. Does anyone else know any thing about this disc?
Is this Discraft's answer to the Innova Katana? Or do they at least show similar flight characteristics? I've seen a few big throws w/ Katanas and like where this trend is going. Big rim, understable, farther!
I don't think it's an "answer" It's not like they spontaneously pop these things out...both companies probably always have a 'faster/longer' in the works at any given time.
I have heard that the Nuke pushes the rim out to the maximum allowable thickeness per PDGA standards. Someone here noted that Dave Dunipace of Innova said he'd never create a disc with the max thickness, so it will be interesting to see if his words hold. If they didn't I don't think it'd be a character flaw by the way. Just a case of "never say never." :-)
Now that they're at the max thickness the question becomes, "where does disc technology go from here." Or are the days of faster and longer gone for a while and we buy what's out there. I wouldn't mind if the new releases settled down a little actually. I'd stop worrying if other competitors had a distance edge on me because they mastered the newest disc. That said, I can't wait to master the new Katanas I just got in the mail! :-)
Just like any other disc, this will not be the magic disc that makes me turn pro. I will pick it up, love it, but not be able to grip its large rim in this cold weather. I'll get one and use it in the summer.
