The extra energy the thrower makes use of, the additional the Exodus can carry its straight flight to the goal earlier than fading. Although it’s rated at a “pace 7” due to its rim design, it may nonetheless deal with torque if thrown at a better pace and won’t flip over or flip right into a curler. These gamers who acquired their palms on the prototype of the Exodus in contrast it to the extremely desired Innova Eagle-L mould, or to a “beat-in Teebird” proper out of the field.
The primary run Exodus was launched in S-Mix plastic with just a few colours. Because it was a small run of 800 discs, there was not a variety of selection in coloration and weight. All the max weight discs have been both orange or black, with a number of the higher 160’s and 170’s exhibiting up in orange, white, pink and light-weight blue.

The Pharaoh is a high-speed driver with a large 2.3 cm rim, making is a strong “pace 13” disc. It’s supposed to be a bomber that gamers can throw with as a lot energy as desired, however with out being too overstable. It ought to fly in a big S-curve with a straight-to-overstable end. The disc has been referred to as a “extra secure Shryke” by some gamers, or has been in comparison with a Dominator with a barely smaller rim width.

There have been a couple of different coloration variations within the batch, however these have been the rarities. It ought to be famous that the decrease weights within the 150’s had micro-bubbles within the rims they usually consequently got here out rather more understable than the Pharaoh discs within the 160’s and 170’s. The sunshine-weight variations are nearly fully completely different discs that work nice for slower arms or as a “flippy” version.
With eight or 9 particular person disc molds deliberate for 2018, Infinite Discs is leaping into the disc model recreation with each toes. There’s an introductory putter coming quickly, together with an understable, “easy-throw” distance driver.
