It's easier to throw than the DD2 for example, I need to hit that pretty nicely if I want to get it to go anywhere, it really doesn't take well to powering down. The Quasar really is the first warp speed control driver I've ever seen.


I agree with this 100%. The Quasar is the first disc of its speed that I felt I could consistently shape a variety of lines with.

If you look at this thread before my joke post, you see others saying speed 9-10 drivers being their fairway drivers. Not me. I never claimed the TRX is a FW driver, i said it is very controllable for such a fast and OS disc. And it ain't my fault that some fools in the other thread put words in my mouth. I claimed and still do, that the Teerex X is controllable as in flying right, straight or left at distances beyond 330' but preferably way past 350' and it is doable. And if you have the power to do it, but can't you ain't even seen an idiot closet, because you've never been in one and have been plain as day idiot for anyone to see all your life. So excuse me, if i did not lose faculties from being called an idiot by a guy failing miserably in every turn.

I just wondered, why there was no hub bub about by people making wilder claims than i did in stating, that speed 9-10 are FW drivers, but perhaps people remember the thread, where others were acting like asses putting words in my mouth. And the new peeps just don't know better.
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.

Speculation it is then: No matter, what the speed will be, i would imagine, that it can be thrown to fly right, straight and left. At which distance depends on a variety of factors, so i won't speculate farther without any data.

I will as soon as I get them in. I'm leaving for Arkansas on Tuesday, so here's to hoping they show up before then. Otherwise, you'll have to wait until Friday.

I´ve been wondering.

Now don´t get me wrong I'm as excited as the next guy of the Jackal. But I´m kinda failing to see the point of this disc...probably because Í´m a noob.
Some people say Fairways are speed 9-10 these days, and some of the 'normal' fairways are in this speed category, i.e. the Teebird, too. So this would make discs like PD, TD, Valkyrie, SOLF...and so on, Fairway Drivers. And thats cool, that seems legit.

My question is, whats the point of a real speed 7 driver, when you can achieve same distances with midranges? Or almost even with some putters...
Now I can understand slow drivers like the Banshee, very stable with a strong dependable fade. But what possible use could a slightly understable real speed 7 fairway driver have?
Or do most of the people have a huge gap between their midranges and i.e. Teebirds, PDs?
I used to throw the TL a lot, but like Jubuttib, I found it pretty useless when I noticed that my C-MD2s flew only a fraction shorter with half of the fade.

I might be really wrong with all this, I usually am...but I'm just curious.
