The black ones are like the first flight worlds ones. straight pro wraith type flight

the new run has some variance including ones that are more stable. I threw one color that was straighter. They vary by color by I can't remember what does what. Some colors had higher domes but the PLH was pretty close on all of them. It is not an overstable disc and flew like a used Force for me.

I haven't thrown the SP yet because well I don't want to pay $24.99 and I can't test out a fundraiser disc.

A dga friend of mine just hooked me up with an SP Hurricane this week. Mine has a nice moderate dome to it. It's yellow and 173g. My initial thought is...a better Force. I have thrown the Pro Hurricane(Both FR Worlds and the regular run) and had mixed reviews with it. The SP is like a moderately domed Z-Force, but with better glide. It's almost like when you find a good Z-Predator. Nice and overstable with smooth hyzering glide for the finish. It works great for the 350-400 ft hyzers. Hopefully I can line up another one of these for a backup.

How does the dome change the flight of the hurricane? We got one with a very slim dome to test, and it seems to suck in terms of glide, plus it likes to fade out of the flight almost immediately, I seriously had trouble pushing it past 350' with anything else than full power. The plastic is the most durable plastic I've ever seen, jubuttib and I gave it a good 40+ asphalt hits at full force, 20 or so high backspins and thumbers on bit softer surface, and maybe, MAYBE it lost just a TINY bit of its LSS, but can't tell for sure. and it's barely scuffed on the rim, I don't know what they made this stuff out of, but it's the most durable plastic I've ever thrown.

So, played a couple of long bomber courses yesterday and the hurricane did great in all wind conditions. I carried three hurricanes with me, one sparkle, one white production run and one AM Worlds stamped one. The Sparkle is pure beef, even more overstable than my domey Z-Forces. The White has a little bit of wear on it, so it has a little bit of turn in a headwind, but still comes back. And the AM Worlds one is straight to understable with no wind. I was really happy with the mold's performance all around. The extra glide that it seemed to have definitely gave it one up on the Force for me. Anybody else still rocking the Hurricane?

If the rest of the Hurricanes are anything even close to the one tester I had, I think it's one pointless, glideless piece of shit. Judging by the thread though the one I had must've been a mutant. Only good thing I had to say about the disc was the plastic which was durable as all hell.

I would throw the Hurricane if I could. Such a great driver. It was my first disc to top 500ft. The original pro lines were sweet. Still haven't thrown an SP since they were like $24.99.

I was using the Proline Worlds Hurricane for a while. It flew great initially, kind of like a Wraith, but with Destroyer glide. After moderate use, it got pretty beat up, and as it did, it became more difficult to control. I have another one of those, unthrown. I have 2 Proline white Hurricanes, 2 of the black hurricanes, and 2 SP Hurricanes (one is strictly a collector's disc, Jon Baldwin World Champ signature).

The sparkles are definitely good for the big arms. I only throw mine when there is a severe headwind or for flick shots. I might try it for a thumber sometime as it could be decent. The production runs once they beat in a little bit, are quite nice. I have a couple of the PC/Armageddon style one's coming in the mail this week. Hoping to get a few throws in with them to see how they fly. I also have another regular production run white one that was a misstamp and so the dome is a little bit flatter than my others. I am interested to see if it is less stable than my other white production run. The 2011 AM Worlds one that I have is really flat and considerable less stable than the normal production runs.

As for the one that you got Turso, don't know what to tell you. The only turd one that I have had was an orange 2011 Pro Worlds First Flight one. It was as you described. On a side note, if anybody has some of the 2011 Pro Worlds First Flight hurricanes in the white plastic, let me know. Specifically in the 170-172 range.

You probably had a lemon. Mine flips a lot and comes out late. Sorta like a slower King.
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.

i also have a beefy proline hurricane, every bit as stable as my force. Was assuming this was a freak thing and now i am thinking i was right. My disc flies just like the one turso speaks of

The one we had also turned noticeably, and then instantly faded out. Zero glide and the straight cruising speed range is maybe 1-2 mph.

Yhe one i have does glide well, but has a quick fade. Moderately overstable at least more on the piggish side of that.
