First dominating the Israel championship, then claiming the title of European champion from 2016-2018, Tal Mordoch gets his second signature model, the Orbit. Although the first version, the Orbital, was a bimetal design, the Orbit has squeezed similar performance without mixing materials. The sizing feels similar to the Orbital, but the switch to monometal gives the Orbit a very different concept. The multi-stepped profile is smoothed out, giving the angular Orbit a soft catch that comes as a surprise after its powerful throw. This paradox of power and softness makes the Orbit a lot of fun to play with.
The Orbit has plenty of performance to satisfy the demands of a contest stage or a professional player; Tal used one to snag first in 1A at the 2018 EYYC. But you don’t have to be headed for Prague to practice like a champ.
