Feel: As mentioned above, the Kastaplast K1 Soft plastic feels and fits perfectly in the Berg. The plastic is soft without being floppy and provided the disc with extra stopping power when hitting the ground. If you’ve never held a Berg in your hand, there is no other way to describe its feel other than unique. The Berg has a massive and round rim and a concave flight plate. The Kastaplast Berg fits nicely in the hand for both forehand and backhand. 

Flight: We found a great deal of success throwing the K1 Soft Berg off the tee and in tight spots on and off the fairway. On short par 3’s where a high level of accuracy was needed off the tee, the Berg was exactly what we needed. It flies most straight the whole flight and fades out predictably every time, even in windy conditions.

Our favorite use for the Kastaplast K1 Soft Berg was scrambling off the fairway. Being a torque resistant disc, the Berg was able to handle a large amount of power when a flick was needed to navigate tight corners or small gaps in trees. Having the confidence that the Berg was going to stop on a dime when it hit the ground was huge as well.
