The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I have seen discussions here lately about disappointing discs, or the best from each company, but not one where you got a disc and were surprised at how well it worked.

I have to say for me it is a Champion Viking 172 gr. I only got this disc after getting a 35$ voucher for winning a tourney. He had mostly Innova, I throw mostly Discraft. He didn't have any Innova I was familiar with except heavy Valkyries. I picked up a Viking and asked him how it was to a Valkyrie. He said just a little more stable. I picked it up, hoping it might find a way into my bag, if not it had a cool stamp and might make a great memento of the tourney tyo hang on the wall.

The disc ROCKs! I love it. It is super straight and did not have any tendency to turn over with full power. I was getting as good distance with it as I ever did with a Valk, and just shy of my record distance with a QJLS. The disc was a big surprise and found its way into my bag immediately where I need distance on straight shots. Distance is still improving with it and it may become my go to disc for max distance( currently held by my ESP Crush).

I have been playing with a Champ Panther for my mid-range for about a year, and I love that disc. I happened to pick up a Star Skeeter, and I have to admit, I'm likin' it...a lot. It has great glide, and will hold any line I put on it. Just don't tell my Panther...it gets scary jealous.
I was pretty shocked when I tried my Timberwolf, because I hadn't ever met anyone who had thrown anything made by Daredevil Discs (out of Canada). This has become my $$$ disc for any straight or control hyzers from 260-320. It is a WONDERFUL disc. Feels good, doesn't beat in easily, and consistently flies true. Great disc! Not my distance disc, but it has become my consistent, control driver ever since I got it.

Kinda like a teebird, but feels way better to me.

I very much recommend it to anyone.
Nice to see I'm not the only one loving a Groove. The most surprising disc in my bag is my go to overhand disc Raging Inferno DT. Sucks hardcore for anything other than overhand, but I've got that thing down to a science now with that disc.
148 gram Champion Orc.
I've been very happy with the Juju putter that I picked up.
175g star max. I got it to backhand but couldn't work the kinks out, just started throwing sidearm with it and I couldn't be happier, plays really nice steady lines and breaks late with a nice flick, I have yet to send one into the ground. I was using a destroyer for my sidearms but as soon as it got beat in to that certain point it kept grounding out. the max has shaved strokes off of my game and I thought it was a piece of trash.
super rock all the way
Another vote for the Comet here...although there's been a gigantic HOLE in my bag for the past several months after the pond on my home course ate my "one and only" after I kicked WAY left off a tree.

That disc for me was MONEY. If I needed 175-225 feet on a low, straight line, that was the disc I used. I love the Buzzz, but I've noticed it has a tendency to turn over into an anhyzer line if I throw it with a little too much speed. The Comet though...that disc I could do just about anything off the tee or fairway and it would hold its line. Absolute money. I need to get a couple more, but I just haven't had the ability this Summer. GREAT disc though.
Well I gota say when I got my first star proto destroyer, I throw mostly for hand and at first it would go fast and strait but when it slowed down it had teeth and turn hard. But after I hit a few trees , it got straiter and longer. When they get beat in they are great. But I found out at lest for my self the super flat ones work the best in champ. And proto star first runs.G-MAFIA
Nobody loves the lowly aviar!
I don't think anyone is surprised by an Aviar. They've only been the most popular putter and short range driver on the market for nearly forever. The Wizard is coming for that title though, Aviar fans all over are seeing the light.
the rage the disc no one seems to like goes farther than anything else i own other than my star destroyers, farther than my max, valks, teerex, illusion, spirit, champ destroyers, eagles, leopards, beast, and my star destroyers only go about 20 feet farther, have thrown one about 380' , they also roll better than my cobra and leopards, and in light weights they kill my valks on tailwinds, i think gateway just didnt promote them correctly there a pure forehand disc
