Whats the difference in the Nuke Plus vs the regular Nuke? I was thinking about ordering one of those proto Z ones but am not sure now that I've found out it may be a different mold, let alone illegal for PDGA play.

The Nuke changes how courses play. Played the Toboggan course yesterday for the first time this year (a temporary course course installed just to host the Amateur National Championships each year in Michigan).

I played a hole (#11, steeply uphill) that last year I could not reach with a drive. I think the closest I got on my best attempt was 30 feet short. My drive yesterday went 20 past.

There is a long, two drive hole (#17) which I could not reach for a 3. Last year I just played it for a four since I was 80 to 100 feet short of the pin after two drives. Yesterday, throwing into a headwind, my second drive hit the pin.

The Nuke is amazing.

Yep. It has gotten me some birds on holes I was unable to reach before I started throwing it. It's great. The other day me and some buddies were playing through another group on a 1000+ ft hole. After ripping a huge drive from the fairway on my nuke, a person from the other group asked me if I was using a weighted disc or something. :) The only thing is, I've messed around with my friend's champ Katanas a little and it seems like I could probably get similar results with those. I'm sticking with the Nuke for now because after using it for a couple months I'm finally starting to get it dialed. At first I had a lot more shanks and stalls but now I'm getting a nice full flight out of it most of the time. I don't want to mess with that.

Anyone gotten their hands on the z sparkle yet to see how it flies?

I'm curious how forehand vs. backhand impressions are varying. Mark Ellis, a forehand thrower, having fantastic impressions is interesting. My impressions of the Boss are - backhand, way too touchy and way unreliable because of that nose angle sensitivity. But forehand? An absolute rocket. If Nuke is the same way - it could say something about the way the speed of a disc, as opposed to the stability of a disc, interacts with the spin/speed ratio of the forehand.

First runs, don't know if there's difference between colours.

Can't use those on tourneys, but true.

Questions have been asked, no-one's admitted to throwing one yet :)

I know Frank Delicious has ordered one, let's hope he gets his soon and shares.

They've been available for a long time (before the Sparkle Z versions) and have been mentioned in this thread. I seem to recall they were very overstable and not very glidey compared to other Nukes.
