Also, do you have anything else in the works? Maybe a new putter that fits inbetween the 2 you already have?

ya, id put the Core right around a QMS, maybe a touch more stable


Compared to my 179 gummy QMS my 177 sparkle opto line Core without flashing is noticeably more high speed stable and a little more low speed stable.
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.

Well it would be wrong for me to announce a new disc here and now, but we´re working :D

Just a question for you guys out there

Would you like to see a Core+ ?? Or for you Innova hunks... Core X

This mean a more overstable Core...

I would like to see the closest disc possible to an original flat/fast/overstable Q-Sentinel. It's a great disc that will probably never be done right again, and I will be all over the disc that revives that flight.

in other words, rather than going for a straight-stable Roc type disc, go for the very overstable Roc type.

as a player slowly shifting towards latitude stuff, a more stable core would be very nice. it has become my main and only mid range disc, but for those windy days an overstable version could help.

Awesome!

I think a core+ would be super nice. How about an opto medius? I'd be on that

I have the premiere edition medius, it fades more than the core, but flips about the same into a headwind. I noticed the grip line ones say s2, did they change the mold to make it more overstable?

Not sure but I think they made them flattter...?
A Core X would be awsome!, the usual Core is a really great disc but a bit to flippy for my taste for having as main midrange. A core/Core X combo would be great, I even think I would ditch my KC Rocs...

Thanks everyone for your input!

Medius S2 is flatter and more reliable in headwind. Actually a much better disc than the Premier Edition which I wasn´t so happy about... Same mold though


We made a test on Medius in Opto plastic and it was OVERSTABLE!! We might try it again some day but don´t count on it.

I'm super excirted about your new stuff about to come out. I'm gettin antsy to tell you the truth.

An OVERSTABLE medius sounds extra tasty, but not as much as an Opto Mirus :D

In calm conditions Core 177 without flashing is snap dependent for high speed stability. Last week I threw mine 3' downhill several times to 340-350' on a straight line fading 3-10' starting at about 90 % of the distance. That was with great late acceleration for me. Before I got warmed up I was s-curving when I wanted flip to flat shots. This disc likes oomph behind it as long as it's the snappy kind not arm speed no spin kind throw but that's true of any high speed stable to understable disc. Core certainly rewards good form and great late acceleration. To me it seems it's born for it so in that respect getting the most out of it requires a player that's not new to the game and knows what good form is and perform most of what he/she knows. With that said with flashing it's still fairly forgiving to a new player without a lot of power because of the added HSS the flashing provides. At proper stages of wear this disc is suitable for many types of players. Not bad as a cheaper premium plastic Roc competitor.
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.
