Review: I highly recommend this disc for beginner and intermediate players. I do not use it as a driver but as a mid-range disc. From 100 - 200 feet out this is the most accurate disc I have thrown. It is a point and shoot mid-speed glider that will fly exactly where you throw it. It's a little tough to anny RHBH but it's an easy and accurate disc to side arm for those shots.

My Review:
The #2 Flyer is an evenly stable to understable large diameter driver. With a profile similar to the Eclipse it gives great glide and requires less power than most of the smaller diameter drivers. This disc has great glide and is high speed understable, low speed overstable. This is a great beginner driver. Thrown firm and flat it will give a straight flight path and good glide with a moderate low-speed fade. Beginners will probably find they get more control and distance with the #2 Flyer than the easier to throw high speed drivers such as the Cheetah or XL. The #2 Flyer was one of my first drivers and it gave me great accuracy and 150-200 feet of distance. Within a few weeks I was throwing s-curves with it, but it took until then for me to get better distance with faster, smaller diameter discs (A rule of thumb I recommend to newer players). This disc is probably too slow for bigger throwers except as maybe a turnover or roller disc. On a side note, I throw right handed backhand but now I can throw a #2 Flyer 200 feet left-handed.
