I lost my hard first edition (CE plastic) QMS almost two years ago. I was glad that I saw that the local importer had clear QMSes so I got one thinking that since we are in backwaters it might be a first run. I thought that it would be a worthy successor to the only mid I've used in the last year if one doesn't classify the Storm as a mid. Imagine my surprise once I held one. I wasn't aware of gummy versions.
I've only thrown it on two days and my form is way off because basically I can't stand straight(almost) recovering from a flu. Still on x stepped throws I get way too many annies when I try to get straight flight by having a lot of initial hyzer. My power and form is much better than with the first QMS I had. I think the hyzer angle at the rip is around the same as with the previous disc.
Is the gummy QMS more understable than the current hard QMSes and the first run for you? Is it as wind resistant as the first run? There wasn't enough wind to alter flight for the QMS. Was it just me messing up something? How far can you throw a gummy QMS straight and how much initial hyzer angle you use?
Mine is a beautiful disc for long annies that need to move left to right a lot. It holds height better and moves farther right than my Wizard. I just couldn't give the QMS as much power without makng it flip over as I can a Wizard making the QMS a shorter straight disc for me. I like that I don't need to throw as hard for shorter standing throws which makes control, accuracy and predictability a bit better than with Wizards. The fade isn't that much larger than with the Wizard so in many places it's not an issue.
I hit a tree at about 170' and and the disc bounced back to the fairway about 10' from an impact height of 6'. The disc flexed up and down mid air for most of the flight to the ground. My initial gut feeling is that the gumminess absorbed a lot of the energy of the throw making it bounce less sideways. Yummy! Me like me like a lot
