^^^ My 174 is probably the flattest disc in my bag now!

I have yet to throw it since it just came in today. How do the really flat ones fly??

My two first runs are noticeably flatter than my Skullboy, but they all fly preety much the same. We'll see after they get some love in 'em, but for now they all pretty much go just like glidey (well, glidier anyway) Leopards. Very controllable for my skill level and make for great frozen rope hyzer flips. I don't usually like US Fairway drivers, but this one just clicks with me.

Anyone (like, someone who ia more skilled than me LOL) notice any difference between the really flat ones and the kinds flat ones?

Finally had a chance to throw the Patriot today. Got 2 rounds in today and had many opportunities to use the Patriot.

I left the Leopard at home today and it's looking like that's where it will stay. I am very very pleased with the lines I was able to shape. After just two rounds, I am confident this will have a permanent place in my bag.

Quick question for everyone...what is the flight plate like on your Patriot??? Mine is by far the flattest of all the discs in my bag. It's so flat in fact, that it's almost concave in the middle. Is this normal?

Yup, I have a FR and a standard and the FR is so flat it appears slightly concave.

couple tasty patriots. Thanks Lion!!

The patriot from the first throw felt like it was a great disc. Repacing the leopards will be a tall feat, but i think it may be happening. Great flight a little wiggle and a nice fade, the definetion of control. thanks legacy this disc is legit!!
I am dumb at identifying Legacy plastics. I own a blue Patriot with a red stamp that looks exactly like the same stamp as the first Patriot in these pictures. I believe it feels like Star-type plastic, so I assume Icon, but I see that there are Patriots stamped like the second picture here that say Icon right on them, which mine does not. Any way to know if I have Icon or Pinnacle? Is this stamp an early run of them or the new stock stamp? I've seen a handful of different stamps for this disc already.

You have a first run patriot in icon. Different stamp for the first runs. Legacy likes to mess with stamps!
