1) A beat-up Epic makes a great thumber or tomahawk disc because it unwinds as a helix and provides an extra turn from upside down (the scooby position), so it adds an additional 1/3 onto the end of the flight .
2) The thinnest profile (1.3 cm, = Discfraft Flick).
3) Floats in water!
4) The fastest disc in the world.
5) G. Bennett used Epics to win his first Michigan State championships with 800 ft helix turnover drives.
6) The Epic can be tunned to adjust stablility.
Oh I know I can one over 500. like I said it slipped outta my hand and went 450. I thought it was dead and done flying after about 300 then it took off like a rocket as soon as it flipped. freakin ridiculous
I know people either love or hate this disc, but I've seen some awesome shots with it. It the Arobie Epic. People say it's to unpredictable, but I have to disagree. Once you figure it out and learn what the "3 dots" on the bottom of the disc are for. You get some crazy distance out of them. I played in a tourny with this guy who only threw the Epic as a driver and he was just crank'in them a good 340 to possibly 400'. They are a trip for sure.
One of the guys here in Brady throws beautiful thumbers with a heavy teebird. He aced a 320 ft. hole #16 with a tailwind. He throws it medium low and it always spikes and rolls forward. I've let him try lots of different discs and the teebird works best.
