New equipment this week
The Discraft Mantis hits the stores this week. The Mantis is a slightly over stable high speed distance driver. Here is what Discraft says about the disc. “The Mantis is a utility driver for experienced players, and a distance driver for newer players. A touch of overstability enables control at slow or high speeds. Rip it hard for a hyzer flip or S distance shot, or hild a strait line at slower speeds. Try it for strait thumber shots too.”
Dynamic Discs has just gotten approval on the Witness. They say about the disc, “"The Witness is a great fairway driver for players with lower arm speed. An understable flight path and tremendous glide make the Witness an excellent choice for players looking to gain distance without sacrificing accuracy. Bigger arms can use the Witness for controlled anhyzers, hyzerflips, and rollers."
Good discussion on why use over stable discs for for hand throws, check it out.
