Ha ha, yeah, brother and co-owner of Legacy. I see Steve's sig on a lot of discs but rarely see both. Made sure I got them both to sign mine.

I threw mine today and it was nice. Like someone else said, the teebird and eagle had a baby. Lol
Straight, sneaky speed, sweet plastic, and predictable flight. For reference mine is flat & 173g.

I've read in this thread that Rivals are stiff, but the one I got today is nice, flexy and super grippy. It's white and 169g fwiw. Can't wait to throw it!!

The snow finally melted around here and it warmed up a bit so I got to get a good test on the Rival yesterday. I threw it as much as possible. Its a flat 174g stiff one. I immediately loved the disc. The Eagle/Teebird baby is a good comparison. I could throw it hard and it would fly dead straight with a soft forward fade at the end. If I gave it just a little more torque I could easily get it to fly like an Eagle. It would track slightly right (RHBH) and fade back at the end. One of the best line shaping fairways I've ever used. It does "rival" the Eagle and Teebird. I stopped throwing Teebirds a while back because it was so hard to find good ones. As long as Legacy keeps the runs pretty consistent then they have a winner. The Rival might bump C-line FDs from my bag.

cooter did you find the fade to be predictable? as in you know its gonna fade no matter what? i only have a handful of throws on crappy ground so i dont have a good feel for the rival yet. Shoot i have 6 of them it better be good!!!

Again, this just goes to show the differences in throwing styles. I have four Rivals, 173-171. They are dead straight, no turn and no fade, up to 350 feet. I wish they had a touch more glide, but otherwise they are awesome at shooting gaps and rocketing down the fairway.

Never liked the Eagle, but it will definitely take shots away from the TeeBird. I like how the TeeBird shapes lines a little better, but they play well together, each picking up the other's deficiencies.
