Nuke

the First run nukes are definitely more stable then the memorial ones. I can't wait till we don't have 2 feet of snow on the ground so I can really try throwing them.

The first runs handled a moderate (10-15mph) headwind pretty good. The memorial ones almost rolled before they got 100 foot out there.

So I'm really interested in this disc now and I'm thinking about getting 2 of them 1 for BH and 1 FH. I use max weight for FH's because I can get more power and control out of it but I've been recently trying to steer away from FH heavy game and lean to dominant BH. I usually have no problem turning over my 174 ESP Crush on a big BH and my 174 ESP Flash flies about as straight as an arrow when I put juice into a BH. So my question is what weight of the Nuke do you think I should get for my BH's? It sounds quite beefier than the two I mentioned so do you think I should step down a few grams?

Max weight for almost everything that isn't extremely overstable.
If it kills, I got news, it ain't a side effect

But isn't the Nuke pretty overstable?

No, its stability is a bit less than that of a Pro Destroyer.

I picked up a 174 Nuke friday night and I'm already in love with it. It is phenomenal for long BH's not too much turn nor too much fade.

OK so I will rescind my previous statement.

I got a chance to throw the Nuke I got from AO the first time this weekend and I can say that I am a fan. This disc is f’ing fast, you barely have to throw it and its gone. The one I have is the Proto / test version so my opinion may not be the same as those that have the first run models. The Nuke I have flies straight as shit on a very slight S line that has a slight bit of turn, with just a touch of fade. I can throw this thing 60 to 70ft further than anything else in my bag, hell I was throwing it as far as Joe T at times. The only issue I have with it is the width of the rim. I found that I could only rely on it for max D on really open holes as I was tending to grip lock it a bit seeing how I’m not used to this big of a rim; as the weekend went on I could control it a bit more. I think after another week of getting used to it I will really like this disc.

Mine is a first run but from what you posted it sounds exactly what mine throws like. And yes its the biggest backhand disc in my bag now.

I have been throwing the Nuke for about a month solid now and have to say wow. I know the guys with big arms might have trouble keeping them accurate but for me, big.

I think I have thrown my longest golf shots with these and look forward to having them in my bag.
