I love the OS for long forehand drives. even if i roll my wrist it still comes back. so predictable.

I think it'd work pretty damn well myself.

Just for reference, I mainly throw Teebirds off the tee from 325 to 400ft.


Not a replacement for a pred doesnt have the glide, flat preds are hard enough to throw let alone an OS.

i may have thrown the flippiest nuke OS a 150 esp (1 of 1 i was told) and it slightly went right in a head wind thrown flat

yeh gunning 400' with a nukeOS requires some serious leaning in-to, I do think it as the very best wind distance disc I've thrown though.

Watch the Discraft clinic on distance with Dion Arlyn. He throws a Nuke OS 500 feet uphill at the Kensington Toboggan course in Michigan.

Watch again. The shot they use in the beginning of the video that gets up to the 500ft marker is a Nuke OS. Listen at 6:30 where he even says he just threw an ESP Nuke OS.

I have a sneaking suspicion the ESP's aren't quite as overstable as the Z's.

I was just pointing out what Oregonians have known for years now. Dion is a beastly freak of nature when it comes to distance.

Yeah, it's uncanny how effortless it looks for him to throw the 500' uphill, jealous be I.

I'm wondering when/if the Nuke OS is going to be put out in ESP. The video D-craft put out with barsby, arlyn, mccabe and pierce showed them throwing ESP OS's. In my experience with the Nukes, the ESP are a little more understable than the Z.

So far I've only seen ESPs in discraft vids, and I think they're giving em in some playerpacks in some tournament. Waiting eagerly on the ESP production run as well. Haven't seen any announcements of them on discraft's facebook or anything yet.

We got some esp OS's in our players packs for Am nats, and I think they are the greatest distance driver for power players ever. The Z are way more stable, and hold up really really well against strong side arm drives where the esp OS has more glide. The esp OS to me flies a lot more like a force just longer.
