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).

Champion Viking is very Cool !
Quest AT ultralong range driver. It floats so that was why I got it, but I was shocked at the true flight of this disc. And its pretty long also. I think the key is to take some power off of it. Its quirky looking ( suprise right? ) but a really great disc.
Has to be a Banshee. Right now I've got Champion plastic with a DX backup. My last ace was with a Banshee (sidearm on a short hole around a tree). This past week I hit a sick blind shot down a hill from a different fairway. I love it because I can put it out there to the right distance and then simply let it fade to the hole. Speed and distance. I love it.
For me it would be the mako. Fantastic from first throw!
I found a 10 year old gazelle in my basement that was old, beaten up, and looked like it wouldn't fly at all. I cleaned it up and decided to toss it in my backyard. To my surprise, I bombed one across my yard and down a hill. It would've been the property of my neighbor's dog if it hadn't hit trees. After that I carried it around and I use it regularly.
150 FLICK! Great for short hard hyzers, strong headwind drives, and my favorite reasons..... its great for escape shots and hyzer skips
have discovered I LOVE the breeze!!!! Stole both my wife's now.
i've gotta say my 172g elite Z surge that i got at tTilleys in Traverse City, Michigan. WOOT WOOT. it's been a simply outstanding disc since i've started using it and i've aced a number of holes with it as well. it's soo peculiat though when i throw it these days because i throw it and it starts curving and then just keeps flying straight, i didn't even put an S-curve action on it. But overall i love itt.
Huzzah for the D Zone! Try rolling it, too. By far the most consistent and reliable FH roller I've found, I use only Zones nowadays for rolling, as well as an awful lot of FH air shots as well. Mad props.
I am surprised that yesterday i got a ce firebird!
I must say the Force is my best liked suprising disc. Throw it anny and watch it S curve, flat and it soars for days with a reliable and quick fade, or do a massive hyzer bomb, awesome disc. I was also very suprised by the Nuke. Discraft's first speed 13 driver and it is amazing. Forget a Boss and Xcal, get a Nuke and a Force!!!
