Disc Information

Order ABC Flying Squirrel

The Flying Squirrel surprises you with its distance. With a relatively gentle throw this disc can sail through the air, especially with a slight hyzer.

The Flying Squirrel is rated as 6/4/-3/2. This speed, with the steady glide, means that with just the perfect shot you can watch the Flying Squirrel sail through the air in a beautiful S-Curve that glides directly to your target. The disc does have a slightly stronger tendency to slice rather than hook.

    I’m new to the game, as I’ve only been playing for about 2 months now. I started with a couple drivers from well known brands and continually had trouble with these overstable discs. Locally we have a wooded 3 par course where I was shooting on average about an 81. The Flying Squirrel has brought my game into about a average of about 54. I luv this disc!…. and although I have an excellent putter, the Flying Squirrel is nearly as effective putting! A fantastic alround disc and would highly recommend it for anyone starting out.

    Tos is a great disc for those long slow anny shots, it is a little touchy for me and if I throw it too hard it ends up diving into the ground. But if thrown just right its a thing of beauty. I wish it had more glad and I like the feel,of the first run plastic much more than the others. The first run just feel a lot more chalky and not so sharp in the hand. The first ga,ei played with it was at 7 am and it was still pretty wet out, u fortunately the stamp started to lose color after only a few throws. But now it looks kind of cool being red and silver rather than just red. I would recomend this to intermediate players looking for a turning midrange. Definitely worth a try. Plus who doesn’t like flying squirrels

    I have a 178g Gold and I would like to find one more around 165, but it seems the Squirrel is rarely seen outside of the mid-high 170s. The Squirrel is great and flies pretty much exactly like the 168 X Comets I own. The bottom of the mold is slightly sharper than the more rounded bottom of the X plastic Comet, but it is pretty much identical. This is not a bad thing at all. Different grips, different images. Gives you options.

    I went Gold over Platinum for a couple of reasons. A) Bigger Squirrel image (I went by the username Slappy Squirrel for 17 years on a BBS) and B) That was all I could find the only time I’ve seen one in a store. If I could have, I would have waited to get a lighter one, but those seem pretty rare, so I’ll enjoy the one I have and find a lighter one to add to the bag later.

    I first picked up my first run flying squirrel near a local course because i wanted a new disc and it caught my with its unique shape and funny name and stamp. It took some getting use to and breaking in but now I swear by that disc. All the reviewers here throw the squirrel backhand which I do too. It works wonders by getting more distance than my other midranges (innovas and discrafts) and t flies wonderfully. What no one has mentioned is hammer throwing it which works wonders. Whenever I’m in a rough spot to throw or need to get throw some trees or want a straight shot, I give it a nice hammer toss and it flies well with that too.

    All in all the flying squirrel is a great disc and is a part of my bag and I highly recommend to other folders out there

    This disc has so much glide with such a small throw. My local course has two of the first three holes around 240 ft. and requiring placement through some trees. With the squirrel, I can concentrate on a clean, level throw, and watch it glide like a dart toward the target. Anything harder turns over to the right unless hyzer flipped. This is really a wonderful disc!

    The squirrel is a go to disc for me. I have only been palying for 2 years, but this disc has grown with me. At first the champion-like plastic gave the disc a slightly overstable path, but easily gave me added distance. Now that my game and throw has improved some, the squirrel really holds a nice line, and will turn over easily. This is one disc I would recommend to others.

    fast understable mid with a very old school feel. great disc for wooded course. easy to power down on and throw on very straight.

  9. Out of all of ABC discs, this is by far the best. It’s personally not bagged for me, but it is a great disc to learn on. It’ll give you easy distance and show you what high speed turn is and what a flight of a disc should be like.

    For those who throw to far left on their backhand – this is the remedy. For once I can aim straight at an obstacle with my backhand, and watch it fly just to the right of it and curve back around to the left. A must have.

    I just tested out the Flying Squirrel and it might be the best under-stable midrange I’ve used. If you throw backhand and want a disc to turn to the right, this is it. Just a slight anhyzer angle and this thing will turn and hold its line.

    This is probably also a great first driver for beginners. 5 Stars.

    The Flying Squirrel is a wonderful competitor in the understable midrange category. It holds a gentle turn without suffering from the lower speed overstability that plagues a lot of molds in this category. I use it (>175g) both forehand and backhand for when I need the disc to hold a turn from start to finish.

    There is another place this mold shines, and that is with beginners. Because of its slower speed, it will track straight for players without decent arm speed. I carry a couple to loan to friends who are new to the game because it keeps them in the fairway and having fun. By the end of the round, they’re starting to gain some distance from the trust they developed with the disc as well.

    My personal experience is with the Gold plastic. It is plenty grippy and flexible without being overly so on both accounts. It can tend to get a little too soft for me in the summer heat though. I have also thrown the Platinum plastic (buddy owns one), and it’s a little firmer (which would help in higher temps), but I prefer the grip of the Gold.

    As for cons, besides the plastic in higher temps, many have mentioned the rim being oddly shaped and uncomfortable. It is different than any of the other molds I’ve thrown, but it was never uncomfortable for me.

    So if you’re looking for a midrange turnover disc that is a little more versatile at shorter distances without losing its flight properties when the distance increases, I highly recommend you try the Flying Squirrel.

  13. I love this disc!!! Put it on an anny and it will hold the line. Put it on a hyzer line and it will snap right up so that its flat and glide for ever. I think this disc has the best glide on the market right now. The first run squirrells are a little more stable than the platinum and the gold but they are all great discs. I would highly recomend this discs to beginers and anyone looking for an understable mid
