Naah, I was just wondering. I'm not that powerful thrower. Even for a 350" I must really concentrate, max is somewhere at 375". I've had some drives at about 400", but that's with a good tailwind so it doesn't count (for me).

Anyway, I had a 150g Bliz Destroyer that was crazy overstable. No chance for me to get it fly far. I tried it in headwinds, but it wasn't very predictable. I rather throw something heavier when facing headwind. But that's just me.

I never got to 350. For a bunch of reasons. And I am not saying the ZG Quasar is going to transport me there like some kind of magic carpet. But it is throw-able and there is distance not seen in my JLS(s). The line(s) of the ZGQ will not eliminate the JLS. Not by a long shot. Then. The ZG Scorpius is throw-able for an over-stable disc. ZGS has as much, if not more, left turn than my QOLF. And it has more distance.

One example from this past weekend. A driver test session Friday night. 36 holes Saturday morning throwing many chaser drives. Now it's Sunday afternoon. 24th hole. Last one of the day. Slightly uphill with a light-to-moderate headwind coming just from the right. There is a tree on the left that is my "measuring stick". A calm day and I am 4, 8, 12 paces past. Headwind. Reaching is good. My ZGQ is out on a very small anhyzer release. To the right, flip, fade to left into the middle of fairway. Chaser. I pulled my Orions to test the ZGs, so I throw the ZGS. Anhyzer release, faster flip, and settles down behind the ZGQ in the fairway. Where is the tree? It is three paces behind the ZGS. And the ZGQ is another 10 paces in front of that. Full distance plus in a headwind. And that being the last hole on a long weekend. I like it :D

Can someone please explain to me why, OH WHY, they make all new runs with such a huge dome? PLS, Sentinel, SOLF you name it. IMHO, it ruins the discs, they are not those you expect them to be!
Bought a couple of these news PLSes - NOT HAPPY. They are way overstable, nice glide but way overstable.
Sentinel - I had such a big hope and I guess it would come handy in a very strong winds, but otherwise my Sunny S has a much nicer flight and predictability.

Now, on the good news. The SSBB - I think I begin to love it. It definitely should improve my short game. However the plastic is a bit too soft and it will get beaten very fast. If they could only make it in a big harder plastic, kinda old 1.3 AP type.

Now (keeping in mind the coming of the Aries) I really need to reevaluate my bag. There isnt enough place for all the discs. Something have to go.
The bag:
SS - 2
1.3 AP - 1
SSBB - 1
CE QMS -1
gummy QMS -1
PLS - 2
QPLS - 1
SOLS - 2
Astra - 1
QAstra - 1
Sunny Sentinel - 1
SOLF - 2
QSOLF - 2
ZG Scorpius - 2
CE EXP - 1
--------------------
Total - 21 disc

Dd not make into my bag - JLS, Quasar.

How often do you throw the Scorpius? Maybe it is hard to lose one so maybe 1 would be enough. You have 4 primo OLFs that could be reduced. 4 SOLS and Astras combined make a few discs and they overlap some maybe one less there? Depending on how often you use them. Maybe you could do with 3 PLSs. Reducing 4 discs out of those shouldn't hurt your bag badly.
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.

You must have at least one JLS in the bag or you're not a true MILL player. :lol: I will list my bag as well when I get more time.

Innova had plastic that domed up the discs early in the year and now they get more normal plastic according to Dunipace on PDGA forum.

I would be very interested in a 16X gr. S-Scorpious. Should be a promising disc. Although I wonder how domey it's gonna turn out to be.

I guess I need to send yet another order to Ned.

I could take a pic of both the ZG Scorpius and the S Scorpius end to end if you'd like. I'm supposed to get the S this Thurs. Although I'm going to be busy until Monday...
