I know, I can do it sometimes. I guess it just depends on the day. Sometimes, I dont have to put awhole lot of effort in my run-up and the disc just seems to fly. Then some days, nothing on the course is going well for me and I go all out on trying to rip it, but it flies a mere 300' or so. Its a come and go type thing for me.

Tried a Roadrunner after playing in the St. Cloud Ice Bowl with Tim Schreder, who busted his out on many-a-hole. I now have 3 of them in my bag and have found it irreplacable.


Four uses, in order of most commonly used shot with the Roadrunner:


1. Long (300-400) anhyzer shots, done by throwing it high and flat and way out left and just letting it do its thing.

2. Hyzer flip shots through tunnels when I need a little more distance than I can get with a midrange.

3. Rollers that roll.

4. Standstill back hands, when that pesky tree will not allow for a run or walk up. This disc is very easily controlled with little power, unlike other, more stable drivers.

I'm a huge Roadrunner fan and I think that everyone should have at least eight of them in their bag at all times.

I also love the roadrunner - it has become a main disc for me since I started smooth-arming more than snapping. It has a nice flippy mid flight but once it starts to glide it will straighten out or come back left (depending how much u flipped it). It takes little effort.

I just got one, and it rolls really well. I don't know how it will hold up compared to the champ plastic.

I noticed that for me, my Sidewinder holds a line better. It seems that the Roadrunner wants to turn right really hard while rolling... Still not giving up on it, will keep testing. :)

Just purchased one; I've been throwing it for a week and it has already shaved strokes. This thing makes Hole #2 at Walnut and Hole #8 at Indian hills seem like they were made for righties. The best anhyzer disc on the market.......
