Plastic: Ching Fusion

Fusion Juju
Flight Rating Category Value What Ching says:
Fusion Juju is a multi-purpose short range golf disc suitable for putting and approaching. It has a flat sided rim for more target surface contact & friction, and to slow it down for controlled upshots. The flight is designed to be neutral in stability with minimal fade so you'll land flat where you aim. The rim depth is similar to typical putter profiles, but is comfortably enhanced by the EXCELERATORô contours. The lower rim built-in big bead fortifies the structure and provides a smooth release. Perfectly balanced for ultimate accuracy.

Review: Not being a very long driver, I have been concentrating on on mid-range and putting game. I currently use the Juju as my putter because it goes right where you throw it, there is no need to attempt to judge a low-speed fade. Since getting this disc, my putting has improved, but probably more because I have been practicing more. Because the disc flies straight, it has given me a lot more confidence in my putting game and I have been "going for it" from further out. All that being said, I have found that my Juju has a rediculous tendency to bounce off the chains and out of the basket. So at times, it is quite frusterating. It is a good disc to learn to putt with, but at some point in the future I look to move back to the Innova XD I was putting with before I got the Juju, and before I could putt well.

Ching was nice enough to send me some protos to demo and I got to throw the new Fusion Jujus about 30 times on a soccer field. I have to say that this is one of the purest flying discs I've come across in a long time. I have a fairly good finesse game and I was able to make it hold just about any angle up to ~180-200' without much effort.

As for my overall read from it, it was stable enough to hold a hyzer line and to hold an anhyzer to glide and land flat without catching edge. I throw bent elbow on most shots (with the exception of max D drives) with a fairly pure release and rarely turn over approach discs or midranges (unless I try to). I did make an attempt to flip it over (in the bad accidental "putter roll" way) and was able to with sufficient velocity but was also able to throw some fairly nice 270'+ distance rollers.

For more interesting results, I let my friend who is a notorious accidental putter roller give them a few tosses.

He rolled almost every shot right off the bat. However, I did notice that his off-axis torque seemed to stabilize very quickly (at least much more quickly than I was used to seeing) on throws with his normal putt/approach discs. Long story short, I was able to pinpoint the problem that had been causing his putter turnover for the past several years and an hour later he was throwing the major quite well and agreed they were a very clean flyer.

I only got to throw about a dozen putts from about 15' but my friend and I played catch with it putting style for about 15 minutes at varying distances. I'm not sure if it was due to gyroscopics or plastic, but I did find it to have a bit of undesirable low speed fade when putted flat from outside 30'ish which may have purely been due to diameter and the necessary RPM's to keep it stable although I have found a trend with putters in grippier plastics that they tend to want to fade a little more than the same molds in stiffer, slicker plastics. It was money from 25' and in though, and I found it to have strong lift/hover characteristics on the longer putts. On jump putts I found I could easily clear 60'.

As for more general comments

things I found interesting:
  • I was able to throw these up to about 50' longer on a hyzer or anhyzer line than on a flat line drive.
  • Every type of shot (aside from flat) I threw with them went approximately the same distance (~200' give or take 10'), knife hyzer, sweeping hyzers, big anhyzers, etc. I've had this experience before, but only with a handful of discs.
  • The 170g consistently flew further for me than the 167g. What I liked:
  • When gripping on the dimples, I found it easier to obtain decent snap without having to add much thumb pressure.
  • It was stable enough to hold a straight line drive flight on a hard, slight nose up throw without flipping over.
  • The plastic really responded well to the basket. Soft enough to flex a bit on impact, stiff enough not to rebound out. It hit and dropped. It did tend to spin out on slight left putts, but not nearly as bad as say an omega, jk aviar, soft rhyno, etc.
  • very nice touch/feel through the flight plate.

    What I didn't like:
  • There were a limited number of spots on the disc I felt comfortable gripping.
  • It was very finesse oriented... which I actually like, but foresee many people not liking that part of it.
  • I found it difficult to get a gradual roll curve, although this is probably more due to weakness in my technique.
  • It was 30-50' shorter than my usual approach discs (wizards), but I am a fan of being able to push putter type discs as far as I can distance-wise (although I recognize that there are different philosophies on this).

    Things I see that may cause trouble:
  • If the disc gets a gouge or bur in your normal grip spot(s) it may become difficult to throw.
  • People who throw with a fan grip may get a lot of drag friction on the bottom of the flight plate as they clear the dimples.

    Overall, it was a fun disc to throw and very accurate. This disc flies similar to an Aero, but seemed to handle snap better with a sufficiently clean release. People that have trouble turning over putters will probably struggle with this disc. However, I do think it is a very interesting and accurate disc and I am looking forward to see how the production runs turn out as this disc is pending PDGA approval upon the required 1500+ discs being available.
