Also the Arrow is well named, stable to over stable disc but put in on a line with enough spin and it's like it's on rails. Or a frozen rope. Or a rail gun. Or some thing that flys really really really really really straight. Super dope sidearm approach disc. Gave mine to a friend after he shot a 120' plus mid STRAIGHT into the basket. Crazy cool technical engineering behind both those discs. Their plastic gets trashed really fast on sharps but I think I'm going to try and find a max weight one somewhere.
I never said that the Epic can't be thrown super far, or be a useful tool to some-- in fact I didn't even mention it. The furthest thumber that I've ever thrown was with an Epic- was injured, so playing RH I threw a flip-n-fly thumber that parked hole 7 at Seatac. Cool looking 'cheater' shot, but way too unpredictable to ever make the bag in my opinion.
The arrow, on the other hand, is anything but a 'super dope' disc IMHO. Contrary to popular belief, if you hand someone a disc and they make a good throw, it does not automatically make that a good disc or the right disc for that person. If you made a top ten list for worst ever pdga approved discs, the arrow would be right up there with the turbo putter in my book.
