The Odyssey discs are alot like what I had envisioned, and for the industry's first attempt at using plastics of 2 different compostitions I think they are pretty darn good, and I look forward to the technology being perfected in time.

Review: David Jr. took the Odyssey to the distance event at Tulsa (Am worlds) and has been throwing it since then - as have I. Many "big arms" also threw it at the distance event. Here are a few observations we have; 1. Very cool look - definitely attracts people. Everyone wants to try it out. outer rim is soft to touch - good feel in hand. durability of clear center seems to be very good. Durability of soft outer rim surprisingly good. Though soft and "rubbery" which makes for great grip, outer rim takes impacts very well. Aside from "scuffing" no major burrs or chunks in edge. 2. Excellent glide - the disc has quite a large dome and seems to glide exceptionally well when level even downwind where other discs tend to fall out of the air. 3. Tails off very minimally at the end of flight more like a midranger in this regard making it a good choice for an approach shot. 4. Distance average for drivers. Downwind probably above average as noted above. 5. Definitely on the low end of the stability scale. The big arms at the distance comp needed to release it vertical and give it lots of altitude to have time to flip up and level off, otherwise, the disc turned over. David Jr, who throws up to 400 ft did not experience this problem as much and had to release with only a bit of hyser as did I. Stability comparable to a JLS or perhaps even a bit less, I think. 6. The stepped rim on the underside got mixed reviews. both steps are a bit thinner than the rims of most other discs. The step itself is unusual. David Jr had to alter his regular grip a bit for these reasons 7. Overall, I'd say it has good prospects as an "approach driver" in conditions where minimal low speed fade, good glide are important and high speed and snap are not necessary
