I threw ONE of my 1st runs today (it was about 25 degrees out)....light orange with orange stamp....I think it's 172g. Anyway, it is easily the stiffest disc I've ever felt, not complaining, just think its different.

Anyway the first throw I gave it, it held a nice line - didn't turn at all and then had a slight fade at the end, but when it hit the ground that's when the magic happened! This thing must have skipped at LEAST 15-20' which I'm assuming has everything to do with how stiff they are, well that and how damn cold the ground was. I will keep it in the bag for now to do some more testing, but I really like it so far.

yeah real stiff plastic.. even at 70 degrees in my house. i think that is why mine aren't gliding as much as others say there's are. its starting to break in a bit after 4 rounds and some field work. mine have a lot of fade compared to my teebirds but i dont mind that at all. its closer to a heavy gl strikerand easier to throw.

im liking the sound of this!! have not been able to throw the rivals i have yet hopefully wednesday. The teebird never felt totally right to me in the hand, the rival seems more comfortable.

I mentioned the stiffness to the Rico's and I honestly think that the next run or batch made will be less stiff ditch is an easy fix. Just the impression I got after the conversation we had and with all the feedback review

thats cool lion... what will be the next plastic after pinnacle?

bender mine skips pretty far if it hits solid ground on a slight hyzer angle. but nothing unusual for a moderately overstable fairway.
