How is that different than saying the Aviar P&A is overrated?

I agree with this. Those fly like bricks
I've been using S Wizards for years and the Clear Evos I got fly just like a Wizard is supposed to. I've had one in the bag next to some S Wizards for a couple months and I throw it all the time on the same lines as the rest of my Wizards. The only difference is the clear evo takes a little more of a fuck up to accidentally roll over, and it has saved my regular driving wizards (med S plastic) from a lot of impact damage.

Note that I don't use Wizards on anything over 230ft unless it's downhill. If you guys are complaining about the way they fly at power and distances beyond that then I guess you could be onto something.


Maybe I got a couple of crappy ones but the two I had, while they felt great, flew really poorly. I had to throw them harder on the holes to get them next to my S wizards. I might need to re audition them at some point.

I throw wizards about 250 comfortable so I am in the same range as you.

You got some 'splainin' to do Lucy...


i hated that disc as well. not a wizard

but i did get my hands on a force and i really dig it

i guess by inconsistent he means the runs, cuz flight wise you cant find a more consistent high speed driver



yea the esp disc were stable by colors.. but the z plastic seems pretty consistent


which colors
Omega - QMS - MD2 - QJLS - OLF/S - DD - Scorpius

I thought this at first but... I removed the flashing on the bottom of the bead and it helped. The E Wizards don't have the glide of S but they seem a little faster so I'm getting about the same distance. My Clear E Wizards are more HSS than S Wizards. They are a nice compliment. I aced a little 225' hyzer with one the other day.

ZXLs don't get much love. I don't throw them but they are nice controllable discs in premium plastic.

Omega SS. If you haven't thrown one you should at least try it. I can only throw a driver 325' max, but I can throw the SS 250' on a string. It's just soooo straight. And the Sirius Omega flies very similar to the Wizard.


I don't throw them anymore, but I agree w this....anybody wants a SS, let me know :)

I really thought the gap was pretty insignificant as well, but I'm not 990 rated so what do I know?

T-BONE, very consistent flight and a little longer than a t-bird for me. Takes some oat to turn it over, nice and long with about a 5-8' fade at the end (unless you put it on it, then straight and very little fade).
