Review: This disc is by far my straightest disc I own. I throw mostly Innova and wanted to try something different so I ordered this disc. I cant seem to get that much distanse with it but it is very good at 250 ft every time and sraight . I can throw my orcs and firebirds longer but if you need a good woods disc that flies straight this is the disc. I have had it for a couple of months and it plastic seems pretty durable

Review: I've only been playing for a few months and have tried the Quarter K, Discraft Crush, and Viking & Starfire drivers by Innova and this disc is hands down the best. I toyed with freestyle and Ultimate frisbee in college and could always throw with good accuracy and distance. But I had real trouble adjusting to the smaller, heavier golf discs listed above. They kept going waaaay left on me. (Especially the QK and Crush -- even with a serious anhyzer sidearm.) So, I ordered the Touchline Bank for its advertised anhyzer...ness. I thought it only came in black, and was a little disappointed when an orange one showed up in my mailbox. But any disappointment flew out the window after my very first throw. The Bank immediately felt very familiar to me, more like the Wham-O classic, freestyle and Ultimate discs I grew up with. It takes very little effort to throw straight and even to give it a strong anhyzer finish. The first time I played with friends, they marveled at how smooth and far it sailed, and with how much better my game was. I went from two or three over to two or three under that day and I've consistently stayed there. Shot my first eagle that day and won the round with ease (to be fair, my buds seemed to be having an off day). Shot six under this afternoon playing nine holes twice, and just had to spread the word. The Touchline Bank ROCKS. I've slapped some serious trees with this thing too and it seems to be very durable. It still looks brand new. I ordered a Touchline True today; I can only hope it's half as good as this "Tangerine Dream."

This disc is the real deal. It is a great disc to learn with and has a very consistent flight path. It is very helpful if you need a disc that turns over to the right for RHBH (Right Handed-Back Handed). The material is grippy and durable. The lifespan of this disc seems to be pretty long. I'm impressed with the fact that it doesn't take much effort to get the disc to fly straight. If you release it with some anhyzer it will turn right but "S" back to the left.(RHBH) If you release it with a lot of anhyzer, it will turn right and finish right. Hyzer releases will simply fly straight and finish left. Real good roller too!
