This is one of the best all-around golf discs! The Shark is a mid-range driver similar to the Roc, but a little less stable to improve precision. It's a perfect disc for beginners since it's easy to control.

    Takes a little getting used too, but once you get it down it is a solid get out of trouble disk. Not good for rollers, but a sold tomahawk/thumber disk over obstacles, short hyzer shots with big arcs, very forgiving disk.

    Advantages: levels out nicely with big hyzer shots, lands flat when tossing over tall obstacles.

    Disadvantages: not the straightest flyer.

    This customer purchased the item at our site.
    I thought it was just me, but while I was retrieving an errant throw deep in the brush, I came across one of these. No name or number on the disc, so I popped it into my bag, and next time I was out practicing in a soccer field, I gave it some throws. I'm tossing several models 225' into the opposing net, and this one is right, left, up, down, near, far, anywhere but by the goal. I think maybe it's just me, but I let me sons toss it, and they too have no control. I meet up with a friend to play this morning, and he had borrowed his son's discs. One was a shark. I said, does he like that disc? He replied, it's his secret weapon. Confused until he said, you loan it to a friend you want to make sure you can beat him. I loaned it to a friend who threw it better than I did, but not great, until he lost it. I then loaned him a stingray. Mistake! He was throwing great with that one.

    Moderator's Note: This review is based on a used disc that was found by the reviewer. The Shark DX has proven to be one of the best selling mid-range discs of all time and is very good for beginners (in our experience). The DX plastic ages quickly and will become under-stable/flippy when well worn. Therefore, the used disc being reviewed may have been very well worn.

    Advantages: Great disc to loan to a friend that you want to beat.

    Disadvantages: No control. I've never seen a beginner throw it well, although it is rated beginner friendly.
