Star Coyote

Postby zealot » Fri Aug 18, 2006 2:45 pm

i was wondering if anyones thrown one of these? they are a tinge understable but i was thinking the star plastic would make this disc almost dead stable (b/c the plastic adds some amount of stability) anyways my roc still isnt releasing quite right for me and i felt the grip on the coyote and it seems great. let me know what you think.

lol, traded for a champ coyote that was worked in a little today.... its exactly what i wanted. flips up to flat a bit easier and runs straight forever. if i use it for drives its dead straight, no fade. :D problemo solved

Haven't thrown the star coyotes yet, but I've found the DX coyotes to be incredibly straight and much more predictable than the champ version.

heh...

you know that if you can't release a roc correctly that it isn't the disc...

about 85% of pros use the roc as their midrange.

but when you do beat it in it will be flippy/squirrely rather than straighter.

My Rocs have helped my game tremendously. While practicing in the fields, i'd always wonder "Why on earth does this Roc always flutter and turn really hard?" Yep, I was throwing it exactly like that .

I've been throwing DX Coyotes since April and got an Orange 180 Star Coyote in early July. Thrown hyzer, they're just a flip away from arrow straight line to the basket. I've have parked quite a few short tunnel holes throwing these off the tee. I also carry 2 Rocs and a lighter Wasp. I use them for different shots. I personally feel that the Coyote is as dependable and predictable as my Rocs and Wasp, just different. I can't throw a Roc off the tee toward the left and have it go around a tree, flip and then come right just enough to make it though a 10 foot wide 200 ft tunnel like I can with a Coyote. In the area I live now, that is pretty much a required shot. Could I perform the same shot with a beat in Roc? I don't know. I just started throwing Rocs the same day I started throwing Coyotes (got sick of my Buzzz) and my first one fought my Wasp for throwing time and is just starting to lose some stability. I'm planning on keeping it in the bag (hit basket yesterday off the tee) and have bought a KC Roc for a stable Roc. So far though they don't do what my Coyotes can over and over.

picked up an orange star 173 today.... seems to fly better for me on the straight shtos and slight hyzers. still flips flat from a slight hyzer. to get a gentle right turn it needs a bit more snap. i like how it flies straight and it'll hold that characteristic forever b/c of the durability. worth a try imho....
