hopefully we dont sell all 45 of them before you show up

also, i'm not going to lie to anyone considering purchasing this thing: the OS is pretty goddamn overstable. much moreso than i was expecting. it's hardly a nuke. if you have less than 400 feet of distance this disc wont do much besides go vertical during its fade

tombstones on command!

*edit* better mark 'em though, otherwise it would be an illegal putt :)

Sounds like a good disc for sidearm. I am going to have to try it out. I am still stuck on the highway 69 CFR destroyers for now havent found anything as beefy that will go as far.

How does this compare to the Ape for sidearming?

Mediocre at best. Around 300'. I use the Ape for shots where I need the disc to fade hard right.

Kollin says it's way overstable, but the real question is, does it wobble?

Picked up a light orange 170-172 Nuke OS at Titan yesterday. I picked it up for primarily a forehand disc. Got about a dozen or so throws in with it as well. Review is strictly forehand, reference purposes, I can throw my Z Nuke around 500' forehand:

Slightly more stable than my pink max weight Force. A little less glide than it, but noticeably faster.

My Z Nukes I like to put on a 30 degree hyzer and flip them flat for distance, whereas the Nuke OS would not flip flat at all.

As far as it's fade, I believe that there are 2 kinds of fade. 1: hook at the tail end of the flight and 2: gradual fade throughout the flight. This one definitely has a gradual fade throughout the flight, making it very stable when I was throwing into the wind.

The disc is great for an overstable disc. The rim feels nearly identical to that of the Z Nuke, which I love. Definitely needs a little air under it to hit great distance with it. Flexed them out a little shy of my line drive Z Nukes.

^

OS - yes
nuke - f no. not a gd nuke. they should've changed the name.

i'm sure it would be good for headwind action. it gets there fast, more stable than i thought. just not sure about this one yet. cant really see where i dont have similar action from stuff i already have in the bag. unless i'm @ pickard or J+B.
