Trey, are you talking about the Am Nats stamped ones?

X Nuke seems to be the longest disc out of the box for me even though it and the Z fade too much so i must use s-curves. A broken in DD2 is about equal. It would seem that the lower power requirement Westside King at lighter weights almost goes as far but it too fades too much. My thinking is that if any of these break in to lesser fade the King has the least LSS to lose to gain humongous distance while still maintaining control. As it is it is pretty versatile but the lowest HSS thanks to being the lightest out of these i think the best chance for getting straighter when it breaks in would be the King. X plastic in the Nuke is way easier to beat than VIP in the King.
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.

I've really been considering getting the X-Nuke, but I seem to do well with Zs. Is there a large enough difference in glide between the two?
It's all about discipline and focused practice!

I haven't broken in mine but a new X vs Z is mostly about HSS difference. Same speed same fade perhaps very mild glide advantage for the X and way less headwind penetration for the X. It's seriously domey.

I got to throw a few drives with an ESP Nuke, they were all bombs. Not nearly as predictable as my Wraiths, but for a max D disc who needs accuracy?

Well, I do.

But the nuke effing bombs. (I'm just now catching up with disc technology, sorry for being late to the party)

Do the x nukes fade the same as the z or ESP nukes?

The X flips and fades more than others available now. At least if the other Xs are like mine.
