Discraft Nuke SS Disc Review

Discraft Nuke SS Review : Is it worth it?





There is much to love about the Nuke SS, being the ‘super straight’ version of the famous Nuke driver, when you talk about distance. Actually, it has a thick wing length but is still very fast so even less experienced players will find it an excellent skill builder.


If you are like most players with just a medium arm speed, you will find the Nuke SS a very good max distance driver. It is not understable either for people with slower arm speed. Intermediate players can also appreciate how they can throw it with a weak arm but still goes far and straight to where they want it to.


For newer disc golf players


The Nuke SS might not be suitable for you if you are just a beginner in the sport of disc golf. That is because of its speed which might be too much for a beginner disc golf disc. This is good though for open-distance shots wherein you will be able to put some power on it and watch it create an S-flight with some great distance.


If you are beginning to use distance drivers, the Nuke SS speaks for itself in terms of distance and speed. You will find it essential in gaining distance but beware because it may require you to apply some techniques in order to get decent results.


For experienced disc golf players


Experienced players like you might want the Nuke SS even more because it is excellent when aiming to get long, beautiful s-curves. You can also be able to overpower the disc if you have some arm speed but you also have to be cautious as it can easily get sidetracked by the strong wind.


Developing players can also benefit from the Nuke SS because it can provide the distance of more advanced throwers even without years of experience. At medium speed, it will be easy for you to get very long turnovers. On the other hand, while at high speed, you can throw your longest rollers ever.


Specifications of the Nuke SS


The flight rating of the Nuke SS is 13 for speed, 5 for glide, -3 for turn, 3 for fade, and 1 for stability. It belongs to the distance driver class which is still in production until this day. For the sake of dimensions, the Nuke SS has a diameter of 21.2cm, a height of 1.5cm, a rim depth of 1.1cm, a rim width of 2.5cm, and a maximum weight of 176g.

Final thoughts


Overall, the Nuke SS from Discraft is not only intended for beginner disc golfers but also for intermediate and experienced players. Aside from being a go-to disc golf disc that beginners love, it is also a favorite for some skilled or experienced disc golf players.


Normal throwing range will go somewhere between 325 and 375 depending on how much force you try to exert on a distance driver disc. But with the Nuke SS, you can easily get somewhere close to 425 when you let it go the entire flight.
