All of the ones at the Clearwater Disc Golf Store are flat (is super flat any flatter than flat? :lol: ). So...mine are flat. I tried the yellow one today and it flew exactly like the purple. This is definitely an overstable utility disc for me. I haven't got it out further than about 330' yet. I throw much farther backhand than forehand in general, but I've thrown the XXX just about as far forehand as I've been able to get it backhand. Today I threw it a lot in far less wind and it actually seems to glide more into the wind. Mine are 175-176. This disc has now officially replaced my FB.

Jesse-Have you gotten one broken in any yet?

i have gotten a few pretty broken in (looking) but the flight has not really changed on any of mine yet, granted my last 2 were aced with and put on the wall just as they were getting really seasoned so its hard to say, id REALLY like to try one in gold line though for a (possibly) less stable/longer option in the bag to compliment my Optos

god dammit. I've just fallen in love with my champ FB and now I read all of this. I love the lat64 discs I've tried so far and now I'm going to have to try and find one of these to test drive.

Any chance there's room for both in the bag?

Dammit indeed. I've been rolling with the pred / xtreme combo recently and been liking it pretty good but all this xXx speak has me thinking I could replace both with one disc. I'm assuming that the xXx is less HSS than an xtreme?

Jesse....what is the max range one a xXx throw for you? You and I have about the same max d I think so you would be a good barometer for me on this disc?

I can't see any reason at all to have both.

Hmmm...when springtime roles around I am going to have to try one out. On a slightly off topic, I sure as hell with I could throw overhand. I have a strong arm, but man for some reason I can't throw overhand for shit. One of you guys need to make a trip out to Idaho this summer and teach me this throw. I have not met anyone around here that throws it with much success either. Visit Yellowstone park which is only 70 miles from my house, and teach Karl to throw overhand. I don't have much in the way of Disc Golf Skills to teach anyone else, but if it involves hunting, building stuff, or other random farm skills I'm you man :wink:

It is probably a tad less HSS, but it would take a disc cannon to tell the difference. The main difference is speed and glide, which the XXX has some of, the extreme none.

I don't know if you could replace a semi-beat Z Pred with the XXX because the Pred is longer. I use a new Champ EX for that slot and its place in my bag is secure.

My Z Pred is getting to beat to be a good overhand disc (I still love for BH headwind duties though) so I might just try this disc out. Also if you're looking for a max D overhand disc is it better to go max weight or as light as possible?

if you have some arm to put behind it max weight will be longer in most conditions IMO
