Review: This disc is about as close to meathook as you can get. To me, it's basically a firebird, but a little faster and a hair less high speed stable. Where it differs from a firebird for me is that this disc needs height to get some distance. A firebird a can keep about 15-20ft in the air on a fast hyzer line, the Venom needs about 30ft for me to get some distance with it. It's a pretty good sidearm disc as well, but I don't like the D plastic for sidearm shots, mainly because the disc has a "pop top". Hopefully soon they'll find a way to make it in Z or ESP, but I've read on the boards they were having trouble meeting tech standards in other plastics. I've also has success throwing high slopply annys with the Venom because of it's reliable fade...

This disc is definatly not for beginners, and I don't know how popular this disc will actually be, since most people already have their favorite super overstable discs such as the Firebird, Illusion, Flick, Monster etc....

Review: I think the Pro D Venom is a very under-rated disc as it has many very important functions.

I mainly use this disc for short to medium drives that fade strong to the left (RHBH). In normal wind conditions and medium arm speeds, it will predictably fade left for most of it's flight.

I have noticed that this disc has more high speed turn into the wind than most of the other overstable drivers out there and still manages to come back everytime. If you're throwing hard into the wind, you can turn it over for just a bit and it will fade into a HUGE S curve.

The Venom is also an awesome thumber/tomohawk disc. Throw a line drive with it and it just chops through everything.

All in all, I've been very happy with the Venom, and I hear these things get more useful with age. They're only $7 or $8 so go give one a try.

Review: For me, this disc has worked well when a Z Predator is too short and a Sirius Orion LF is too flippy. That is to say: long throws into a head wind and large, ominous hyzers. It has currently replaced a Z Crush for these applications.

It's bit too much disc when new, but it's a good thumber and that beats it into the backhand rotation. It appears to take a lot of damage, but it hits a wall in terms of losing stability and for me that wall is in the right place.

Review: I picked up the Venom because I wanted to get better at sidearm since I am a mostly backhand thrower. The venom is a great for forehand throws that you want to go straight down the fairway or to curve right. Also is excellent for hammer shots replacing my XS. It knifes straight thru and I can throw it with good accuracy.
