Review: My friend calls this the 'cheater disc'... but he is full of poop. This disc has taken at least 4-5 strokes off my game, and thats on a bad day. If you have problems with rolls or skips on your a approach, then try this disc. I throw this under 100 feet. I'm constantly amazed at how well it sits, sometimes almost too well. If you get a lighter weight be careful because this disc will hang in the air and float far past your target. It took me a while to learn this disc, but it is now a treasure in my bag! I show it to everyone I can.

Review: Decent tomahawk disc in light/no wind....doesn't slide much on landing. Occasionally a turbo-putt will bend the disc and stick in the side of the basket (it counts).

Not only does it float, when on it's back (in water) it can support a nearly full 12 OZ beverage can. So it makes a handy beverage holder when at the pool, or lake.

Review: I use this disc the most throughout a game. For really short drives, all shots through trees (it won't ricochet off trees) and approaches. It won't roll and will sometimes "flop" in the basket when I know any other disc would have bounced out.

Review: i have large hands, and grip lock used to be a problem with all of my putters.the blowfly solved that! no disc feels better in my hands!(same mold as blunt gumbputt). i use nothing else within 125 feet. will stick to the chains like glue, and does not roll.

Submitted by eschroer@wctc.net More overstable than the Blunt Gumbputt
I have several in different weights and the 157's seem to have more consitent flight patterns. The heavier ones seem to be more floppy. I don't know if they used different plastic or what the deal is.
