Does this Xcaliber not fly as far as the Destroyer or TeeRex because it is so overstable? I have the Max and was curious on the Xcaliber but I am not sure there would be a lot of difference between the Max.

As I have thrown this disc more I've found that distance can be achieved. It took me a little bit to get used to the stability, but it is by far the best wind driver out there, imo. There is a significant difference between the Xcal and Max. The Xcal has definitely got more of consistent flight pattern (I now have 4 of these discs) compared to the Max (I have 4 of these also). I found that disc-to-disc the Max is fairly inconsistent. I have 2 that I can anhyzer and 2 that knife out like a Speed Demon. Still love the Max, but Xcal is taken over. I think that it has helped me to get out and just throw the Xcal in open fields to get an understanding of what it's capabilities are (and there are a bunch). This disc is going nowhere fast if you don't carry the arm speed necessary to get it spinning good. The Xcal was my go-to disc during Gr8tful at Sundance. I got within 60-75 feet of the valley shot(can't remember what hole 14/15?) in a headwind!!!! So what I'm saying is, that if you feel you have the arm speed and power, want a dependable overstable disc, the Xcal is for you. Hope that helped, Jeff S
Thank you for the feedback. I will have to pick up the Xcaliber and see how it works for me. The Max works fairly well for me but it does have a tendency to knife edge and break a lot. I use it situationally when I want a big break and a bit shorter off the tee.
