well its funny if you read my previous posts I was all about wide rim discs, but now after many many weeks on the field and a crap load of rounds tryin out new plastic I finally wised up and went back to what I threw all along for 8 years and that is small diameter rimmed discs for more control.

However the good thing about trying all those wide rimmed discs(teerex, wraith, destroyer, max) out is that after all that time throwing them I found that since I have gone back to small diameter rims(eagle x, firebird, valk, orc) I am throwing them just as far as the others if not farther sometimes!

I did hang on to the teerex and thats because I tuned it into a WONDERFUL disc but I have to have plenty of space to throw it trustingly.


anyways, for all of you out there throwing large diameter rimmed disc I would recommend at least based from my experience, if you have strayed away from small diameter rims GO BACK you can get pretty much the same D and SOOOOO much MORE control.

like it. I'm an orc thrower myself.

throw a 175 for straight/hyzer max D and a 168 for hyzer-flip D and calmer conditions.

I'm in the pocess of finishing my bag off for at least the next year, just collecting the extra plastic. but I throw a pretty similar bag (driver wise), I just throw some of the discraft counterparts.

What are some of the discraft counterparts you are using?

I guess some of this is subject to my experiences and how i interprated testimony of other players

but I find my flx pred to fly beefy, like a MAX
my Z pred has more glide and is more like a Firebird
my seasoned reaper flies a lot like my DX teebird, but seems to penetrate the wind better.

and this one is a really loose comparison- but my Xpress seems to hold an annyline or follow a flex shot a lot like the star valkyrie I used to throw.

I suppose they arn't like 'discraft's identical molds' but in my eyes, they seem to fly quite similarly.

HOw much difference are you seeing in the Monarch and RR? IThey were almost the same for me. I found I can control the RR more

I can't do a reliable comparison RR against Monarch because my RR is beat to flippy and my friend uses it. I have 175 and 159 Monarchs. I took the flashing off of the 159 because Monarchs fade too much for me when thrown high from steep hyzer to flipped. By the time they reach apex they fly too slowly for the amount of new disc LSS. I hope that removing the flashing rectifies this problem. Stay tuned...

Monarchs fade more than RRs and IIRC glide better. Don't remember if the speeds are that much different but I think Monarch may have a slight edge. Both need back twisting initial hyzer angle and high apexes at sea level fully powered throws. For a spin deficient thrower like me. YMMV.

as for my comparison I feel the monarch is longer with better glide and has excellent low speed stability.

However I have tourny stamped Monarchs and they seem to be flatter than the regular runs so may I just have some Sweet runts.

Removed the flashing and saw no difference but it was cold and rainy and my throwing power and distance was down. Stiff and cold on that day with wet discs.
