Okay, just got home from throwing my new 172g, yellow C-DD on a soccer field.
My thoughts so far.
The plastic is close to the C-PD2, but grippier. Yet it still has that indestructible feeling.
Its long, and handles headwind amazingly well. Got a couple of 420'+ throws in a moderate headwind, so its a lot faster than a PD (for me atleast).
Also I got it to go further than a PD2, and the fade/skip is about half that of a PD2.
When thrown in a backwind, it just goes straight, and is a little shorter. So it clearly needs to turn over a bit to gain that nice distance. I´m expecting it to start turning nicely when it gets a little beaten.
A plus side for me is that it isn't affected by my OAT problem (tho I've almost gotten rid of it
). So its a lot safer for me to throw into a headwind than a PD.
What I would use it for:
Long controlled drives.
Long hyzers (360'+).
Similar discs (IMO):
A good Teerex
An overstable Wraith
I will continue to test it. Need to use it on a course to really see how it can be controlled, but I have a hunch that its going to be a great, controlled distance disc. And am definitely getting a 175g one to try out as well.
