Review: ive heard of players using this for forehand drives but when i do that i turn it over with the quickness however backhand this disc does freakin wonders for my game. I throw this sucker hard and flat and it turns over at about 250' comes back around 325 and finishes at about 390 to 400 consistently with pin point accuracy. Perfect for ace runs and birdies.

Review: The Pulse is exactly what Discraft discribes: a very long overstable driver that is perfect for forehand players. What I like best about it is gives a very natural "S" curve on long shots, turning left first for me (as a right-handed forehand player) and than fading back right. Not great into a headwind because of that initial right turn, but good in all other wind conditions. The only other downside is that it does not have a great deal of lift, so low shots don't ofter work-out that well. If you can give it some air, however, it will go forever. Probably my longest and most consistent driver currently.

Review: Fantastic sidearm disc! I had been using the tee-rex since it came out and have had problems with reproducability, some are nice and stable but some have a little turn like a wraith (or more) even when new. The Pulse has proved to be what I expected out of a tee-rex, holds a straight line and finishes with a nice predictable (not too crazy) hyzer. I've been using my Pulse more and more for about 3 months and it hasn't gotten flippy yet, hopefully it will take a while or won't at all. Posted 06-05-07

Review: Very fast overstable driver. The Pulse sizzles dead straight before hyzering hard at the end of flight. Great headwind disc. The pulse has the flight of a Z crush, but faster and longer. The plastic is outstanding as well. I recommend this disc to anyone looking for a slightly beefier, faster wraith. Bigger arms will get a ton of yardage of of this one.

Review: This disc is a great big arm, straight driver with predictable hyzer finish. Works good in headwind, but not overly impressed with heavy headwind. Great glide! Compared to a mid-beat Innova Teerex. Will pull out of any turnover with enough height. Little to no High-speed turn.

Review: Excellent Disk. ESP Plastic is very durable and has good grip. Very fast disk. Touted as a sidearm driver and is exactly that. This disk also is good for back hand
