esp pulse

Postby Abe Froman » Wed Nov 15, 2006 3:20 am

feels good when you grab it...maybe tee-rex ish. but i chucked it a couple of times from a long tee and it was one of the best rollers i have seen in a while. only problem was that i wasn't trying to throw a roller. it flips over like courtney love at a barstool.

Was that the baby blue Pulse I hooked you up with? It has to be the color. I gave Aaron L. one just like it and it was flippy. If you want a beefy Pulse you got to get Orange or Yellow based on my experience throwing them. Those are stable to over stable and hold up well in the wind but not as good as a Pred.

I agree. I have a white and a baby blue, and the white one is beefy while the baby blue is flippy, really flippy. Gotta be the colors.

Almost all blue'ish Discraft disc's are definitely a whole lot less stable than any other color. I had the same problem when I used to throw predators. I bought a blue one thinking it would be fine. But...it wasn't overstable at all. So I bought an Orange one and that thing was sick overstable.

WHen it comes to beef, I don't order 'em thick, but just right... This disk in orange is a tad bit too stable for me backhand, but until I get a replacement wraith, it'll be my headwind driver, and/or sidearm driver...

I went to WR for lunch to practice a bit today, and threw a couple nice sidearms from the mound in the middle of #3, to the Western tree line... Had to throw them a litte undertable, but held the line pretty well. Good disc, I like the feel, definitely beefy. Throwing backhand, I need to give this a few ore throws befor I determine if it's too beefy or i I wasn't throwing it right. I'm assuming it's more the latter... :roll:

I had a white Twisted Flyer stamped one, and it was no more overstable than an ESP Surge.

my fav. driver is my first run max weight pulse that disc is great. Its baby blue with a purple stamp I cant say that its flippy in any way. Iwould say that its great for bullets and controlled low ceiling shots. As far as a roller I haven't thrown it for that. A Pulse is rated at 1.9? I do think that a Surge at 1.7 or 1.8 is ALOT beefier than my pulse. I got a baby blue esp buzzz 174 that is a couple of months old and it flies like it five years old.............. Buy orange or yellow I guess
I don't give a f*ck if I'm arrested. I'll deny it to my grave. If I robbed a church and had a steeple sticking out of my ass I'd deny it too......

Hmmm... My ESP PUlse is slightly more stable than my Z-surge (R.I.P) was.

I think that when some dyes/colors are mixed into the plastics, they have some kind of an effect on the disc's properties, or something. That's why you see some variation from color to color. You see this across the board with disc manufacturers, not just discraft.

I may be wrong here, Chase correct me if I am, but it seems like mostly the blended plastics get affected more than the clearer "champion-like" plastics.

I can say that my light blue skeeter, seems like it's blended, because the dye doesn't seem to have mixed as well, while the primary colors (blue & red) are a lot more flimsy...

The "re-tooled" Pulses will be out soon. The are very beefy and that is what they are supposed to be. The ones out now are S.H.I.T. Surge is more stable.
