The Essence is an understable fairway driver that can easily become a do-anything type driver in your bag. You can take a little power off of it and let it naturally work its way down the fairway or you can release it on a slight hyzer angle and let it flip up and fly straight. Plus, without much effort at all you can execute some great anhyzer drives with the Essence. Once you learn what it naturally wants to do, you can really make the Essence work for you.
GEO plastic is a baseline material that will beat in easily. It's fantastic for beginners and people that want their discs to beat in quickly.
