Throwing a surge

Postby TexasOutlaw » Sat Jul 01, 2006 3:04 pm

I need some help, fellas. I see on the board that for many the surge is longer than the avenger. That is just not the case for me, which tells me I haven't learned how to throw this disc.

When I release it, it hyzers hard left. I use it on a hole by the lake by throwing it hard into the lake and letting it hyzer back and hit the basket.

But, it is no where near as long as my pro wraith, dx wraith, or x avengers.

Any help would be appreciated.

i recently started playing/testing the surge...for me...its high speed understable...then dives left near the end...

...try throwing and keeping the nose down...also...i think snap is very important with this disc..

I have thrown the surge for a lot of max distance drives.

Under good conditions, Throw it on a distance anny route. It has enough high speed turn to hold the turn for a decent portion of its flight, but is low speed stable enough to still flex out. Give it about 20' of air at its apex and watch it soar!

I know my X avengers very well, and a surge ok (dont throw one, but had one and I tested it alot) the surge was longer on a line drive shot, but w/ the opprotunity to give the avenger some height and they were the same. In the end, I didnt see the surge having the potential to be as accurate so bye bye.

dx wraith and pro wraith should be longer than the surge.
