Review: Years back I played with this 85 year old guy on our local course (tower ridge) and totaly got spanked. Dude saw I was a little miffed so he bestowed on me the golden rule of disc golf. "Throw the course not your disc." In other words accuracy>distance. Sence then I've moved through a dozen or so mid-range/ Multipurpose disc and the spider is the only one disc that should say allpurpose on it. Anyway on to the review.

Plastic: 175g translucent green "dayglow". Rubery grip and flexable like a gummy but hard outer ring that keeps the shape. One problem I had was after 6 throws into a grass field and 2 into the basket the dome changed shape. The level/curvature of the dome's outer edge and Center which is about the size of a quarter are uniform except for a ring an inch wide that circles the centter waves down into the disc much like a thumb track on a banger-gt. If you look through it you can see that the dome actualy is very thin and uniformaly thickens as it moves to the outer edge. Because of this I could not tell you how a normal spider flys but I can tell you this hasn't hurt the durability or fly ability of the disc at all.

How mine flys: Glide is between a grow and ce roc making it glidy enough to respond to a late flex but still work able on windy days. Thrown hard thumb in Nose down it will do a long hyzer thumb in nose up it anhzers. Throw it platter flat some slight hyver angle and it straightens lifts maybe 10' at most and s-curves tightly for about 280'. I found that changing the speed of my throw resulted in the same flight pattern just shorter distance.

Hope this helps your disc choice and If anyone has had the same structure problems in their disc let me know please.

Review: One of my favorite midranges. Contrary to the previous review, my spider is fairly hard, even for champion plastic. This disc is perfect for hyzer drives on holes under 300'. Its not my longest midragne, but its definately the most consistant. Its got a bit in the fade department. When thrown flat even nearly full power it wont turn over (where i am very capable of turning over high speed overstable drivers) If you get it nose down, it will turn over. My best Midrange in headwinds, like a gator or bulldog. A disc that will never make its way out of my bag.

Got two of these (173g) at a bargain, now they're $15 just about everywhere. Medium speed, small diameter, overstable midrange/approach disc. Bought these for use when my KC Roc is too long, and it seems like they are a perfect fit. The plastic in the CE needs some getting used to however. It feels like rubber used in those jelly-like fishing lures. Very flexible, very soft, very grippable. Still pretty new, this disc seems slightly more overstable than my newer Rocs, with earlier fade and alot less glide. They handle spin very well, I haven't turned one over from flat yet. For reference I have about 400ft max D and these go about 250-275 comfortably, maybe more as I get more familiar with them. They go straight for about 65% of their flight and then fade moderately to hard left.(RHBH) Due to their resistance to turn at release speed, even with alot of spin, they work well as a forehan! d disc for me. I was under the impression that the clearish plastic was used for the lighter weights and a "pearlescent" blend was used for the upper weights,(This was posted by Dave D.) but my 173grammers seem pretty clear. (green and blue) These discs are harder to find if they are not in the open due to their transparency.
