The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
I hate to say it, but the Groove is nice too. From what I've seen in the DG community, people seem to hate the Groove, but I like it.
And Brandon is right about Vulcans, I'm loving that disc, the Archon too, although mine is in Champion.
And what is with the Katana? In Star and Pro it seems to be as overstable as a Boss, but in Champion you actually get that 3 turn out of it. Strange.
For me, just starting out, I throw Vulcans, Nukes, Wahoos, and Beasts the best. I do carry a Boss and a Wraith for doglegs because the fade is perfect for many holes on nearby courses. Those discs guarantee me 4 birdies on the 18 hole course a town over, 2 of those get me close to an ace.
It won't be too long before my wacky understable discs become bagfillers, hopefully.
Unless you have a minimum of 400' worth of power, you're not going to be able to control the disc well. You can keep throwing it and get it beat in, but it still isn't an optimal disc. Also, if you keep throwing wicked speed stable discs you'll teach yourself bad form and then won't be able throw other discs properly. This is when newbies (or the ones that haven't learned yet) say that a Roc, Buzzz, Gazelle, Teebird, etc. say these discs are flippy.
If you're looking for a max D disc, find something that you can control w/o having to release the disc annie just to get it do anything.
Joshua I have found the same thing to be true about Katanas. The champion ones are the flippiest ones.
I'm not a fan of the Groove myself. I have two of them, a first run and a production run, that I would love to trade off. They both have my name on them but both are still in very good shape. Neither stayed in my bag long.
