The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

    I played my first round with the Nuke today and have mixed feelings.  It goes very far but is not super accurate.  I pretty much threw it and my XL off the tee today and while the Nuke generally went further it was WAY more left.  As the round progressed I managed some pretty good throws with the Nuke, but my XL (retrieved last week out of a culvert where it has resided for the last 3 or 4 months) was a bomber today in the medium winds.

The nuke really can't handle the wind, at least not that I have seen yet. but I have had the same issue thus far with my nuke. I think its in the angle that I release. If I release with a slight anny I get much better flights than being flat off the release
Definitely, I started to try a more anny release and a lower throw and found some success, still not as accurate as my XL today though
I like the Katana more so far. But I Always go back to my Star Destroyer
there completly differnt discs, the nuke is really fast and if thrown corectly w/ practice is accurate. It does not fight threw wind like other discs but works with the with wind. its like a corvette vs a grand am, the vette is way faster yet if your not a good driver you will wrap it a around a tree, a good driver can drift around a track blindfolded. practice w/ it I started by throwing it almost like a putter(w/ driver motion) 50' at garbage cans around the park makeing it hyzer, anhyser, turnover at will then backed it up etc.
I got my first run Nuke and I am sad to say that it doesn't fly like the memorial Nuke that I used to have. The Memorial fundraiser disc turned over more easily and took a lot less power to helix (big plus for me). This one takes a little anny to get going, but once it does it really gets there in a hurry.
thats why i dropped big bucks on four of the memorials right away (2 armegeddon)
Ya, I wasn't to thrilled about it at first. Mine did the same thing, but I'm starting to really dig it. It's nothing like the Katana, but the one thing I found that they have in common. Is I get a better response from both discs when I try to have a nice smooth pull through and don't try and power/muscle it. Also, after some "seasoning" I find I can throw it flat and it no longer has that big hyzer at the end. I also found I can hyzer flip it and get a nice helix with a good headwind. It's still not as long as my Katana, but it's the 2nd longest disc in my bag and it handles the wind better. Mind you I only throw approx 310', well maybe 320' to 330' with these discs. It's kind of cool to have a REAL chance at some birdie shots on holes that I was unable to, before I got these discs.
So, don't give up on it yet. It took a few weeks, some practice and a few rounds. Before I started to dig this disc.

Good luck!
