Review: This disc does not get enough credit. It is one of the most predictable, stable, chain-seeking discs I have ever thrown. At first, I was unable to control its heavy weight (180g) and basically thought it was a piece of... well it wasn't until I threw my beloved KC Roc into the lake at winthrop and was forced to finish my round with the CE shark that I realized what I had been missing by just leaving it in my bag that whole time. This disc basically "knows" what I want it to do and then it simply does it. Beautiful s curves, solid predictable flight, and its great for hyzers. Best of all its takes a lickin and keeps on tickin. Im not gonna say that Rocs are overrated but for sure sharks are underrated.

Don't overlook the Champ Shark as a midrange next time you go looking for more plastic. I heard thru the grapevine that Schwebby loves 'em so I went to pick one up. I wasn't dissapointed!!! I'm LHBH (cheater!) and use my mids for shots up to 275'. This disc just begs to be crushed! I've not yet found one in any weight that is flippy in the least. Stable Pig is the best way I could describe it. It is the most predictable hyzer shot in my bag. I am on a hunt to find more b/c 5 is not enough. Just for reference I bought 4 CE Rocs at the USDGC and have had no success keeping them on a predictable hyzer or staight line like I can with my Champ Sharks. I love this disc.

I am an amateur RHBH thrower. I started with a 166, and moved up to a 177 as the lighter weight fluttered too much for me with a lot of snap. I find the Shark to be very predictable in its flight, holding its line for around 85-90% of its flight, with a slight left tail. With the lighter weight I can really finesse it to where I want it. A flat release and it will pretty much finish perfectly straight for me. Release with a good hyzer and I have a nice long left sweeping flight with little variance. For shorter holes, I even tee off with the Shark. With enough power and snap I can keep it around 10ft off the ground and still push it out close to 275ft. Maybe not that impressive, but effectiveJ. Overall, the Shark would be the equivalent of most golfers Roc, a predictable midrange.

As a thrower of CE Rocs, I totallly understand the frustration with finding and being able to afford a consistent predictable mold. I found it. The CE Shark is the midrange of choice for me for this reason. I love my Rocs, but I feel this great all-around disc is being sadly overlooked. There appears to be some stigma that Sharks are not a "real player's" disc. I don't get this because my CE first run Shark is as stable and flies practically identical to my '03 CE Roc. It is a great midrange for hard long straight approaches. I find if you really drive it hard, it will hold a straight line and drop straight down. It is a great short overstable driver and skips nicely too. My disc has taken a serious beating and still flies as true as day one. The CE Shark also is a very "true" flyer as it goes just where you throw and holds the angle all the way, so it is great in helping to correct throwing errors. It is a tad more domey than a Roc, and a little slower. It is a great replacement for a broken in 10X KC Roc, which many of us hold as one of the truly awesome discs ever encountered. Big ups for the Sharks!!
