Something to replace my Drone

Postby SoCal19 » Mon Feb 26, 2007 3:03 pm

I love the Drone, but they beat-up too easily and become less stable. If I hit one tree with them, they become useless, and I don't think they're going to be running them in ESP or Z plastic. So, what else is there that flies like a Drone?

I've been asking AO the same thing, kind of. I have a wasp and I don't like the inconsistency. He told me to get a Drone, I asked about the durability. He said that if not a Drone or a wasp go with a Domey Z Buzzz or a FLX Buzzz.

I give this advice seeing you have all Discraft in your bag.

I'm going with the FLX.

you don't have a lot of choices, gator, demon, sentinal, foil whippet, or extreme. but the whippet and extreme are going to give you skips

I only have all Discraft, because I'm trying to break in some discs before the tournament season starts. Plus, I'm trying some new discs to see if I like them.

You should have went with a demon. I have had the same "S" plastic one in my bag for two years. I use it for spike hyzers and thumbers, and it is still wicked overstable.

I can't throw a demon. The funky dome on the top just feels weird in my hand, plus I don't think they have as smooth of a flight as the Drone.

The drone as well as the mrx were based off of the demon I do believe.

The MRX was PDGA approved in June 1998, whereas the Demon was PDGA approved in September 2000.

I use a Champ Tee Bird for my 300 - 200ft hyzer shots. But, like others have said with a driver you will get the touch and route you want but you will also get a skip.

A true Mid would cut down on skip, but the flight is not there.

So maybe it was the drone that was based off the demon. I just recall a post on the pdga board at some time that stated that.

Champion sharks and drones are very similar. I throw both.
If it kills, I got news, it ain't a side effect

I can't see that. Sharks are no where near as stable as a Drone. I can rip on a shark and it will flip. No matter how hard I rip on a drone it won't flip. I can't find anything that flies like a drone. I'll just have to continue to replace them everytime I hit a tree with them. :roll:
