I look to this disc not only for up shots(which by the way is a great use for it), but also as a get out of jail free card whenever I get in trouble. There’s a lot of wooded courses in my area and when you need to hit a gap, the A2 will always be there for you. Forehand or backhand, this disc provides a reliable over stable turn which you can count on in just about any conditions. Coming from someone who is a Discraft fanboy and loved all of his multiple zones, I must say I am thoroughly impressed with the performance of this disc and will bag one probably for the rest of my life. Great disc prodigy!
