Review: First off I have 2 wildcats, both are blue which seems to be an understable color for what every reason, and I use them for long sky rollers. I love these discs for super long distance rollers and turnover rollers. All I have to do is throw these babies flat and hard and they fly about 350 feet then hit the ground at he perfect angle for max distance. If I want to turn them over I just throw them a litter higher and with more anhyzer angle and they hit standing almost strait up and turn over perfectly. I have tried many different discs for rolling and the wildcat is by far the best one I have had so far. If you are looking for a roller and haven't had any luck, try a blue Elite-X wildcat, even brand new they flip, even in tail wind.

Disc Weights: 167-172
Review: By far, this is my go to disc. I am an intermediate player and use this disc on 70% of my drives. I carry a 167-169g for backhand and 170-172 for sidearm. I feel that the heavier weight works better for sidearm accuracy and wont turn over like the lighter weights. For backhand I get a little more distance with the lighter weight before the disc starts to fade. This disc has allot of speed and glide, and I really like the feel and grip of the X plastic. I have hit a few obstacles and the plastic seems to hold up fairly well. My home course is more wide open and recommend this disc for those shots. Otherwise I like the X Talon for those tighter sidearm shots. I really like the Wildcat for sidearm and can throw 300-325 with great precision. Now if I could only figure out how to putt! I have really small hands, so this disc is more suitable for me than the wide rim drivers like the Orc or Crush. I highly recommend this disc to players of all levels.

This disc has been a dream come true. When I first got it I really tried to rip it flat, and it turned over and never came back loosing valuable D. So after a few throws I decide to tone it down a bit, and I was surprise when it easily went 300 ft. up hill. I've since threw it on some more difficult holes. Low ceiling up hill, and it has held it's line very well. Even after smacking it right into a tree off a drive about 10 ft from the tee. I sometimes have problems releasing too early, as in the case, but the plastic held up nicely, and didn't even get scrapped up. Which was a total surprise. Still flying strong. A well recommended driver.

This is the best ultra long range stright hyzer driver I have. You can really rip the Wildcat, and it will keep its straight line until the low speed portion of the flight. I highly recommend this disc to anyone interested in gaining a few feet on those monster holes we all have to face sometimes. The discraft manufacturers really made a great disc when they developed this one! P.S. Don't throw the wildcat to far now!

The X-Wildcat has basically replaced the Z-XS in my bag as my distance driver. I don't think it goes any further than the XS, but it carries further than anything else I have. I throw 169, but also have a 174 as backup. I like the feel of the X-plastic better than the Z. The Wildcat took a while for me to adjust to because sometimes it would act more stable than I was hoping for. I use it when I need the longest flat-line hyzer side shot that I can muster or for long turnover shots, where it usually comes back only slightly at the very end. I don't use this disc unless the shot requires more than 400 foot of drive. The Predator and Z-X2 are more consistent flyers for me.

The Discraft Wildcat is a very fast slightly overstable very long range driver. Mine weighs 174 grams. This disc has a fairly high resistance to turning over. Therefore it is a very predictable disc as far as long distance drivers go. Thrown hyzer it will hold a fairly overstable line through the whole flight. Released on a flat angle it usually does a nice little s-curve, turning for maybe 50% of its flight and then coming back for the remainder. When I throw it with a little anhyzer angle it will turn for 80-90% of its flight brfore falling off at the end. Don't get out of control with this disc though and try to overpower it. I have done it a few times and it will turnover and never come back if it is overpowered or released with too much anhyzer. Bottom line, this is the farthest flying disc I have ever thrown or seen. It has more distance and is a thousand times more predictable than Innova's farthest disc the Valkyrie. For me Valkyries almost always turn over and are very unpredictable. I can count on the wildcat for consistent drives that average 350-400 feet with ease. (My technique isn't good enough yet to throw much further.) As far as distance goes, nothing I have ever thrown can hang with this disc. Oh yeah, the Elite X plastic is also very grippy and durable. I have yet to blemish this disc and I have been throwing it for a month now. Go pick up this disc if you have a big arm and want to crush some very long and predictable drives. You will love this disc. Discraft made a true winner with this disc.
