here is the album because the pictures are being annoying. sorry in advance for the pictures being sideways.
Drum role please.....
I am at about 275' max with my saints on BH. Today i went out and threw the rival today. 9-12 throws. 15-20 mph gusts, tried to through when the wind died down.
Into a headwind thrown flat, it turned over for me and went 200' on a turnover. But the magic happened when i threw it in a 5-10 mph tailwind. its like the planets aligned and my 3 weeks of BH practice has turned out great. When thrown flat, it turned a very tiny bit but stayed straight through its whole flight. Then at around 245' it faded foward and to the left. So a relatively straight disc. I would say it has replaced my flat star eagle. Then, on my last throw, i tried hard to throw it and finally for the first time broke 300'. 304' and it was completely straight with a little fade at the end.
Over all it is a fantastic disc. rim is fom what i can tell slightly larger than my eagle but not larger than my saint. Classified as a speed 7 but is faster than that i think.
My only complaint, which isnt a big one and this is only from 10 throws, is that the glide isnt very much, maybe a 4. Not as much as my saint or my buzzz
aLso my average throw with this dis was 265'

Got my Rival in the mail today, thanks Lion!

Won't be able to throw it until Saturday though. Stupid work! Anyway, it looks (nice and pearly) and feels (nice and grippy) GREAT! So for now, here are some pics i took of it. The closest disc that i have to compare it to is my 11x TeeBird, you'll see the comparison in a couple of the pics. My camera and photo taking skills are a little weak, so forgive me if the pics aren't the best.

Can't wait to take 'er for some test drives on Saturday. Enjoy!
