All Discraft product discussion

I have gotten a chance to throw the FLX Drone a lot lately. Talk about a work horse. Great in the wind and TONS of stability. Also, the flx plastic in this disc isn't soft as other flx discs. I can maybe get this disc to go 300 feet when i rip it on a high roller angle.

There is one line and one line only, the Hyzer line. Just throw a stable to over stable putter up over the roof of the shelter and it will land under the pin. Annny line......... :roll: :roll:


Corey, I throw the anny w/ my skeeter or SS, no biggie there, but like the dead drop of the FLX Drone there. It drops hard, and dies, unlike the annies I throw up there. Holes 8 & 10 also, money.

Me too... :wink: I've been testing it out as much as possible, and Work Horse if definitely the definition of this beast. Mine's 178, and a little bulky, but yeah - wind, and severs hyzer (flat or spike), and this thing is money. What a great utility disk.

I got a chance to throw the Drone quite a bit today at Thomas because of the wind and this disc is a keeper. It came through every time.

Wow, I wish I would have seen this earlier.

So they're not making anymore until '09?

Dang. The Drone is my favorite.

DD has FLX Crystal Drones?! Also has the same in Nukes and Challengers. Plus FLX test run Wasps, ESP Nuke SS and Z Glow Commets. I don't know of team members who have some of these discs. Jeremy must be spending a nice chunk of money.

Those Z-Glo Comets are pretty nice if you are a comet thrower. Scott Papa did a run of them last fall for one of his tournaments.
