If the object of disc golf were to hit trees, I'd be 1100 rated.

The Avenger SS is way under-rated. I've learned how to make mine work for me and have hit metal with it 3 times on holes 320+

I don't own a driver that will fly straighter when thrown with a small amount of hyzer and flipped flat. No turn, no fade, Great for those long straight shots with obstacles on either side.

Over rated. Anything made by Innova.

underrated: the good run of a gateway disc you like
overrated: the bad run of a gateway disc you like

:lol:

and yes, I've thrown a lot of gateway, but this holds pretty true regardless!

I'm not sure about over/underrated. I do agree with some others about over/under hyped.

Under Hyped:
Viking
Shark (everyone throws a roc or buzz around here)
Warlock
Predator (I know 0 predator throwers)
Drone
Gator
Gazelle (sexy lil fairway driver)
Zone
Ringer (faster than you think)
150 class or lightweight 165>
The list is extensive...


Over Hyped:
...pretty much any disc with a rim wider than 20mm...lol.
Pure, Rhyno, Roc, Saint, QOLF, Astra, Quasar, Predator

True on both accounts but especially the Surge I have.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

overated: 100% of new things (not to say there aren't good things coming out...maybe I mean overhyped)
underated: stratus (money in the woods and for short rollers)
