Just got my proto tester Patriot today. Can't wait to get out and toss it. Looks to be very slightly larger (1/2 cm or less) than a Roadrunner and maybe 1 speed slower. More of a scooped rim as well.

Excited to hear about the Patriot, my tester Rival is on it's way to me now. Should be an interesting week for all us testers.

LOVE my Cannon on the longer courses, my home course just isn't long enough to call for it (<350' for the longest hole) I'm excited to try these 2 new offerings now and can't wait! If you need a tester in FL let me know

Glad you got the prototype patriot I sent out to you. Please post a review of it and give us your opinion on the plastic, flight, and overall thoughts on it. Speed 7 with little fade and some decent turn.

The plastic is like a pearly, Champy Star. A little slick, but nothing a birdie bag won't fix

I got my Proto Patriot today. Beautiful red pearly Star like plastic. Rim feels good in the hand for sure. Nice flat top. Can't wait to huck this thing tomorrow. I'll post pics of it in a few minutes.

If someone who received a proto Rival or Patriot and gets done testing in the next two weeks, try to hook me up and I will see what I can do to make it worth your while. I am going to host a Legacy Ace Race in March but would like to have something to throw to better gauge the course design. If not, no big deal, I suppose I can wait until January when they are in stores.

I hope to have rivals in hand this Friday or Saturday and will probably sell them to DGCR members starting this weekend. That's in hole of promoting them early on here for members like I did with rampages and cannons.
