The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

So what's the verdict? As some one who max's out at around 320ish. Would I be able to throw this disc or is it to much for my arm? For instance, the Katana works for me, but the Gold Line Halo. Looks like it's to much for my arm.
So could you let me know if I would be waisting time and $$$.

Thanks and Peace!

I have a 169g one that flies pretty straight or turns to the right (rhbh) for it's flight. It seems to fade pretty decent at the end of the flight. The disc might be okay for you if you get it in a light weight as it will be easier to control.

I haven't been able to throw it as much as I've wanted to nor had the opportunity, but I'm going to throw the crap out of it this weekend....assuming that I'm not that hungover.
Sounds like a Katana or is it more stable?
I have not thrown the Katana yet but I have thrown a Nuke a couple times. I don't know the weight of the one I threw but I do know it was one of the most understable discs I have thrown in a long time. I throw rhfh at about 300 feet max and all it did for me is flip. If there wasn't any snow on the ground I bet it would make a great roller for me. I evev tried to hyzer flip it and it still flipped over and kept going over. My verdict on this disc is it is WAY to flippy for me!
It flipped SIDEARM. Sidearm requires more overstable discs to not flip out of control. It's not that flippy backhand. I can control it to 500' backhand without flipping it over, but hyzer-flipping into a long s with a slight drop back. Almost aced #9 at Lakeshore with it again the other day (410' s shot).
I'm a puny arm but I love both the nuke and Katana. I forehand the nuke about 350 with a hyzer flip, and I put it almost 400 a couple times on hole 9 at Lakeshore with a slight anhyzer. I can't wait until it breaks in a little more (or the snow melts) and I can hyzer flip it backhand
I have been throwing both a Nuke and Katana for the past few weeks. My Katana is a 2nd Run Champion (gummy) max weight and the Nuke is 174g Memorial Championship CFR (Proto).
My 'go-to' disc for long drives has been a 174g Star Destroyer. I throw RHBH. My experience thus far is this...both the Katana and Nukes rocket down the fairway. I mean they flat out move. The Katana is much more understable than the Nuke. Innova says the Katana is like a Sidewinder on steroids. I tend to agree. I have to release my Katana on a hyzer line in order to get distance 450+. When I do, I get a nice turnover with a gently fade.
The Nuke on the other hand, doesn't require a hyzer (at least for me). I am more consistent with the Nuke for my distance throws, but if I hit the right line with the Katana, it's outta sight.
I've heard that the production Nuke that was just released is more over stable than the proto Nuke I have. So for those really big arms that release the Nuke level and have it turnover without fading/flexing back, the production run might be the ticket.

The ESP Nuke is FUN to throw! Super fast and easy to control. I had mine custom dyed!
I threw it alongside the Star Katana and they are both Great. My NUKE was a bit less stable.

that is sexy disc-o!! i dont care for the disc but i like the dye!!
Agreed that disc does look pretty sweet.
love the photoshopped' travolta pic lol
Sounds like the nuke is super under stable. I don't think I'll get one then. I throw stable to extremely over stable discs.
