Aerobie Epic tuning

Postby Thee Old Sage » Mon Jul 31, 2006 8:00 pm

I recently bought an Aerobie Epic due to the reviews I read in the reviews section. Several people claim to be able to throw a thumber 400-500ft because of the disc being able to turn one and a half times. What I am wondering is if this requires tuning the disc as per the packaging instructions.

it's easier to do after the disc has broken in. generally people tune it downwards to make the initial flip easier and to help it turn into an s-curve after the barrel roll.

Also, you need to be able to throw hard enough to get the correct spin out of the disc. I would say that it is not for everyone, but if you have a very strong baseball throwing arm it can def go over 450+. And I second what Blake said, tuning it down makes it easier to flip over. However once the disc is broken in nicely tuning it down makes it good for a death spiral if you throw hard.

Thanks alot. I tuned my disc down and got it to turn and fly pretty consistently after throwing just a few times. The furthest I've got it to go so far is around 350', but it was pretty accurate. I think I will be able to get more distance by tweaking with the heighth I throw the disc and maybe a little more tuning.

can you "tune" a regular disc, or is it just the epic?

you can tune other discs. Bending down makes unstable, ending up creates more stability
