The Essence is the do-it-all fairway driver in the Evolution line up. Let’s compare it to something you’re all familiar with, shall we? The closest relative to the Essence as it stands now is the TD2 from the Originals line. We’ve repurposed, reimagined, and reinvented our goals for an understable fairway driver and have done exactly that. Given the understable nature of the Essence, this disc is best suited for players looking for their first distance driver, backhand or smooth forehand throws, tailwinds, and excellent roller shots. Although beginner and novice throwers are recommended, we expect many pros out there will take a liking to this disc quickly. The rounded semi-blunt nose of the disc allows for fantastic roller shots and controlled backhand or forehand throws when you need it most. If you find yourself on a technical hole out on the links, you’ll reach for the Essence!
Flight Ratings: Speed 8, Glide 6, Turn -2, Fade 1
About the plastic: This disc comes in beautiful, bursty Vapor plastic that feels great in the hand. The Vapor Lux plastic is also extremely durable and will last long in your bag.
I love the plastic, the feel of this disc is great and it looks so nice.
It flys like a Essance dead staight with a little flip
The lux vapor plastic is slightly softer feeling than the neo. I was throwing the Zen version of the essence prior to this but it was just taking too long to beat in to flippy. I'm hoping this will beat in like my previous neo essence did and be a hyzer flip machine in the woods. Since this disc is an 8 speed, you do have to throw it pretty hard to get the under stable flight. For lower arm speeds this disc will be straight to slightly over stable when new. I mostly use this disc on holes that are 300ft+ and narrow.
