EXP1
Flight Rating Category Value What Millennium says:
The EXP1 started as an experiment, too -- that's where its name comes from. Better players wanted even more speed and more fade than the Polaris LF, and the EXP1 was the answer. Once again, it was an immediate success, and it has become an important part of the Millennium line. It is our best driver into a strong headwind, and it is great for linedrive shots. If you can handle it, the EXP1 could be the answer for you.

Review: I bought this disc and loved it right out of the bag. It flew great for me. It was moderatly overstable and allowed for fantasic S-curves. The only complaint I have is the plastic. I play on heavily wooded courses and it didnt last very long at all. I would recommend it on an open hole, just dont hit a tree full power or it wont be the same.

The Millennium EXP1 is my absolute favorite disk for the sidearm drive. It is effectively the only disk I can sidearm as hard as I possibly can, and still get the ideal S-curve. (Most other disks will take a hard dive to the left when thrown with all of my force; I attribute this to the EXP1's very sharp cutting edge.) The disk is very useable for the normal backhand throw as well. Though I agree with previous reviewers, this disk isn't for beginners--I can think of no better for the somewhat experienced player looking to learn the sidearm. I have yet to see a thinner disk, though I expect they exist.

The Millennium EXP1 (Experimental Driver) disc is an extremely overstable driver. By trading my shark (It wasn't much different than my Teebird, so I ditched it), i carry an exp1 now. In order to use the exp1, one needs a well trained arm. It is definitely not for beginners. A lot of snap and an anhyzer-like throw is needed to prevent it from prematurely fading sharply. The exp1 is a wicked s-curve disc due to its overstability. Mine is about 172g and can travel very far, however, if not thrown correctly, the super fast fade will veer the disc off target and take distance off the drive. I recommend keeping it low to the ground, and not to be afraid of giving it a quick anhyzer-style throw. The disc is very durable. Many knocks against various objects, but very few marks. This disc has very little glide, but if you throw it well, it will go far.

My Review:
The EXP1 is a fast, very overstable driver. It's profile looks very similar to that of a Banshee, they might be the same mold. It also flies quite similar to a Banshee. Quite overstable, the EXP1 will hold a tight left curve very well and is an exceptional disc into the wind. Its resistance to turnover could be compared to that of the Banshee and a heavy X2. The EXP1 has a strong left fade and will "bite" the curve well without flattening out too much which is a problem I had with the X2. This disc is quite fast, faster than an Eagle or Teebird but it does not have exceptionally good glide. It might be my longest disc into a headwind or with a left to right crosswind with the exception of possibly a Firebird but I prefer the line the EXP1 holds. I would compare the EXP1 to a KC Firebird similarly to the comparison of an Eagle to a Teebird. The EXP1 has less resistence and greater low speed fade. I feel a bit more accurate with an X2 and KC Firebird in windy situations and get similar distances with all three but I feel that the EXP1 is better suited to long left-fade holes than the others. This disc is not beginner friendly.
