Review: Since my game has stepped up a lot lately I have been trying out a number of discs. I just picked up an Eclipse (along with an Innova Tee-Rex & A Pro-D Buzzz) and have already had the chance to throw it out at my favorite driving field... and this disc is one that will stay in my bag. It responded immediately to my way of throwing and gave me some of the best distance against some others (CE Sidewinder, DGA Rogue, Star Roadrunner)... but keep in mind it was very windy when I was out tossing. Can't wait to try it out sans wind!

Review: I have been throwing an Eclipse since some time in the mid 80's. I find it to be a very dependable S curve or roller disc. My current disc is pretty beaten up but I don't recall it having really changed it's flight characteristics over time. My max distance with this disc is around 325. I like it as a fairway driver or an approach disc and will often use it in the trees if I need to S curve in to the basket. While I can often get more distance with a Wraith, this disc is more reliable and generally a better bet for me on drives, possibly because I have pretty old school technique and haven't really caught on to some of the new ways you kids throw these days.

Review: The Eclipse is the perfect disc for the beginner. I have two of these in my bag and I can't think of any other disc I could use alone for an entire round except maybe a Shark. If you throw it easy and flat, it stays flat. If you throw it Anny and with a little snap, it will turn right and keep turning. If you throw it hyzer and hard, it will hold the hyzer all the way to the basket. I have new one and beater. The beater will turn over a lot easier than the new one but it is definitely one of my favorite all-purpose discs.

I have a couple of Eclipses that are more than ten years old, so they are pretty beat. They used to be my utility drivers, but I use Rocs for that now. I use the Eclipse for high, long turnover shots where I need extra glide to the right. I find that the Roc is more likely to fade back left or turn and catch an edge. The Eclipse does a nice job of stretching the distance out while holding the anhyzer.

This disc just turned over instantly for me. I throw fairly hard and it performed like a piece o crap.Maybe a good roller?
