**EDIT: I see they're in the 2013 Memorial players packs... To hit shelves soon, possibly?


I ordered Glo and Ti SS Nukes on Friday

Another shout out to the OS. At the GBO the winds were strong AGAIN and it came through. I think I threw it 65% of the time whether it was into the wind, left to right wind and side arms. Heard several of the DD guys saying they missed it. Watched them throw the Villain and the Giant. They just weren't getting it done for them. Get a max weight OS for extreme shots and strong head wind shots. Lighter and ones with a dome on them are go far with the wind...

I use them for thumbers, forehand, and forehand rollers. The new ones are domey, not flat like the originals. And they are not nearly as overstable as the first runs. My rollers have been almost turning upside down before hitting the ground (and I do realize I don't have the greatest consistency, but it never was a problem with my F.R.) Thumbers flip up and only go a fraction of the distance they used to. I've had some good forehand shots with them, but I can't crank em like I want for fear of them turning into an accidental roller. Anyone else notice this...? Anyone have a first run with the numbers on it? New ones are at 2.2, and I only throw em at 173+ grams

This years are definitely domey and some of the plastic seems to have and FLX mix in it. I think the domey will come in handy and will be reliable. Just not as insanely overstable as the flattop first runs. Still one of my favorite discs right now.

I realize they still have a purpose, still carry them in my bag too. I just hate growing accustomed to one type of mold, then they bring these completely different molds out and call it the same thing.

Is it me or do a lot of the discs by both companies seem domey this year? We've had some at the shop that are major poppy top.
