Finally got the new Q-Sents. 1 170g and 1 175g

Haven't thrown them much but the stabilty seems to fall between the San Marino run and the other post SM runs. The flight was a mix of both but it's really just splitting hairs. HSS was similar to the straight ones but the LSS was like a 10/10 sanny. I need more tests but I like it so far. The new stamp is clean looking as well. Oh yeah stardust in the Q-Sents - pretty rad. I prefer the grip and feel of these over the new Sirius Sents

Note: I tested these next to a new sanny and a 8/10 domey straight run

Might actually consider moving some sanny's if these season nicely

That's why I throw a gummy QMS. (It's dead straight with my arm. 230-270) :roll:

What distance/lines do you guys think I would get out of a relatively flat 171 Quasar If I get my 167/168 Champ Beasts out to 400' on a turnover?

That is not straightforward and there is some variation due to nose angle and spin rate. At least a lighter Zero G should allow 420' flat land no wind shots with an s-curve. I have had a few feet more and i also get the Beast a few feet farther than 400'.
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.

Yeah, I realize it's a subjective question. I'll hold off for now until I can get a better handle on wider rims.

Anyone thrown the Sirius versions of the Scorpius?
I'm a loyalist to the Q, and don't throw Sirius, just curious how the flight characteristics changed with the Sirius, if at all.

Had a few questions..

I saw that Millennium got rid of the exp on their website which I guess puts it in the grave for good.. What is going to replace it? Will we finally see the jlf?

Are these new Sentinels even in the ballpark of a drone or gator? My older ones were too straight to rely on in any kind of wind.

How hard is it to come by a CE omega? I am very interested in one but don't know if it's worth looking for and wouldn't know how much to pay if I found one.

I sure hope millennium finds its roots soon.. These warp speed flavors of the week are getting a little ridiculous.

@Fritz
I like my S-Scorpius. It has more dome than Q but it's not poppy. Started out beefy, getting straight stable. Not really grippy plastic but it's nice. Seems to have more glide than the heavy Qs I've thrown

@haier2
EXP1 are out of production right now. Probably for good which sucks. When I asked them about Q-EXPs they basically said "not going to produce EXPs right now and don't have plans to do so". Maybe one day we will see it again

The new QSents are pure beef. Lots of low speed fade. Not quite as nice as the flat sannys but they definitely have similar stabilty. These came out domey and the Qs are in stardust. Sirius are plus mold

As for the big drivers. I hope once the Aries comes out, they focus on another mid or putter. They did release a small run of Big Bead Omegas

What would you like to see in a mid? I ask out of curiosity. There are six mids in my bag right now. QSent (good one), SSent, gummy Q, CE Q, AMS and QMega. I don't stand on the course and go "I don't have a mid for this shot.".
If I had to choose, I think I would want a disc with CE Q glide/distance and the finish of a QSent.

Well the easiest route is making the BB omega stock

I really want a mid that is md2 or shark like. Have the same feel of the MS but with fade.


Or a small diameter mid might fit in better. Cro or gremlin like

That stable mid spot has been rotating in my bag for a while - Shark, md1/2, gremlin, Cro, beardless gator. Even Rocs
