The purple ones are the only ones that I really like, and unfortunately I only got 3 of them. I haven't been able to find any more.

I saw a bunch with warped tops...Like the old ESP Forces, one part of the flight plate is clearly sunken in asymmetrically. Other than that they were very flat. I'm guessing they are going to be flippy, but I haven't compared PLH.

the problem with the flippy Forces was that while they where understable, they had little glide, so you still had to throw hard to get it to go, for this type of line the Nuke is MUCH better. Longer and easier to throw.

Apparently there's a Nuke OS coming out as well as SS. Facebook update from discraft : https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid ... 5094352053

What do you guys think of the name OS? I mean how does that compare to SS? Seems like it sould be Nuke O.S. and U.S. to me...

Nuke SS, you mean Super Stable...

I know what they mean, I just think the OS vs. SS is kinda odd.

Hasn't SS traditionally been SuperStraight?

They go straight for the people they're marketed at...

I'll be up for the OS by the sounds of it, it isn't too hard for me to turn the standard Nuke.
It's all about discipline and focused practice!

OK, I'm loving the X first run. Have always preferred X plastic and the mix with this mold is wicked. Quite a bit more dome than my Zs, it improves the glide substantially. I'm using a sub 170 backhanded and a 171 forehanded, a dynamic duo in my game. Can't say I'd be too interested in a OS or SS mold, I seem to be more comfortable controlling that aspect of the flight through varying the weight, and the current mold is working for me. Thanks for the X plastic BIG D...

Having seen how much the PLH (and hence, the stability) varies without following the weight at all, I'd never trust weight alone to tell me how a disc is supposed to fly.

So far the Crystal sparkle Z's are flying huge for me right now. I think they're more stable than normal Z's (not the purples), but I'm loving the plastic. It grips easier.
