The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I'll start this  


Core-    Favorite mid on the market- goes where thrown

Striker- Best distance/fairway out there; eagle/teebird with an extra gear or two

River-   Best anny disc on earth with incredible glide and surprising D

Fuse-    Great understable mid but I leave it home if wind kicks up.

Flow-    Jury still out for me...definitely prefer the GL

Blitz-    Great wind fighter...only had it for about a month so that's all i can say.

xXx-     Haven't thrown this much- it has too much sauce for me

Vision- Good understable driver 

Halo-    Fast and far; once they break in

Trident- I need to throw this more too...very overstable 

Pure-    Good putter and better approach disc

the river , flow , vision , and halo GL's are in my bag . the riot , blitz , and xXx are on my wall all opto . and i have an opto core that is in-and-out of my bag . the core is a nice putter/mid . the xXx needs a bigger arm then i have . the riot and blitz have a funny rounded inner rim that i won't say i don't like its just different for me , and totally different then the core which has a very sharp inner rim .

Core-    Good mid, flyes as you throw it and goes where thrown. Not forgiving if released wrong.

Medius S2- Got a domey one that flies far and straight with a small fade. Holds the given line

River GL-   One of my favourite drivers. Stable and good distance

Flow OO-    When you hit it right it flyes great and far, but that is WHEN you hit it. Need to throw more and break it in. Really like the widht of the rim

xXx OL-     Not sure yet. Havent tried it in "right" conditions (windy) so far. Really overstable tho...

Vision OL- Mine is not as understable as expected, but i still like it. Needs more braking in i guess.

Pure-    Favourite putter now. Allso good for approaches

Spike GL/ZL- Have 2, one (blue)is really understable when used as approach/short hole driver, the(pink) other is stable and goes pretty straight. The pink one is softer and "reshapes" easily when used, so i have that at home for practicing mostly

Sinus SP- Allso a good putter and a good approacher. Good for hyzer/anhyzer approaches as it holds a given line.

I'll join in..


173 GL Halo... This is my "Boss". It handels headwind great and has some good D for me.

171 OL River... first time I threw this I knew it was going in the bag. VERY easy to throw straight.

173 OL Core... MONEY! This disc replaced the Buzzz! So easy to throw far... great glide and it'll hold the line I want!

173 GL Pure.. Not so much! It's ok to practice with but it won't make it into the bag. Too under stable for my putter choice.

Just ordered a Flow, Havoc and Pain.... I'll see how they fair! I am a huge Wasp lover so the Pain better come correct!


I just got a Zero line Spike:  I like it alot but not very durable

update# 2:

Pain- It's a very controllable overstable mid...great disc

Havoc flies like a gl flow with a left hook /skip at the end. Not what I was expecting but a good disc.
Sinus - Great headwind putter or good for 100-150ft upshots.
Core - Absolutely perfect, goes where you want it.
Fuse - Not great in a headwind, but what understable disc is. Other than that I can finesse it through
any obstacle with minimal effort.
Trident- I use it like a drone, great in a headwind.
XXX - Like a firebird but a little faster and way more stable. I throw this one about 320' overhand and
300' backhand.
Flow - Really pleasantly suprised, it has been a great straight driver, and I took it out in the field today for
some distance driving with my Nuke and Boss, outdrove my nuke by 50'. The glide is crazy.
Striker - For 200-300' straight shots, reliably straight, can't ask for anything more.
Medius - Had it in my bag for a week and couldn't figure it out, but i'm not too much for many understable discs.
Mirus - Same as above, just couldn't figure it out.
Vision - Great for tunnel shots, uphill drives and those needed trick rollers.
Halo - While it is comparable to the Nuke and boss, the rim didn't have enough depth for me to be consistant
so it is out of my bag. On a side note the three discs I did not like were the only three I ordered in
gold line plastic. I don't know if mentally I just didn't like them bc of not being opto.
Blitz - Absolutely great overstable driver, borderline on being too shallow of a rim, but I like it.
Riot - I was in love with this disc until I lost it playing in the rain. Great control, enough distance for most
holes. Got to get me another.

Really got to try the Havoc though, and give the river a try, but Pain and Havoc are on the top of my list for next.
