I just ordered a Boatman today since I mainly throw forehand and I am getting super excited for it to arrive after reading all the good things about it. This will also be my first Westside disc, in a nice 169g tournament pink.

It's very beefy at first...but once you break it in a little the glide shines through and it becomes really workable!

Has anybody else gotten there hands on the blue sparkle TP warships. I have seen the local stores here getting them and also the online stores. I have found this one to be much more o/s than the other warships I have thrown. They are also not as domey and have a slight puddle top.

Yo Westsiders!

I have been thinking about going with the Westside/lat64/DD family for my bag for a while. I would like some feedback. I am currently throwing for distance max wt Forces that go 390-405 on golf lines and max wt Hurricanes that go 425-450. I use the hurricanes for tailwind, long hyzers, s turns and the forces for windy drives, big hyzers, skips etc.

I believe from my searching the sword would behave more like my hurricanes with skinny S turns and long straight shots that fade and the giant could replace my force for really windy days and lighter weights for big hyzers and overstable distance shots. I would like to know what weights and plastics do you suggest from someone around my power level thanks!

I was thinking: 2:175-vip sword, 1: 175 tournament sword, 1:175-vip Giant, 2:170 Tourny Giants.
Chive on! haha

I only threw lighter Swords in TP and heavier VIPs should have less turn and more HSS but the Sword may have less stability than the Hurricane...that said I am not all that familiar with Hurricanes...my point of this was to suggest that you might want to consider the Trespass in that slot

The Giant in VIP and heavier ought to be close to a force but perhaps longer

if your throwing over 400, then I would say yes, stick with vip. the sword at this distance will keep a very straight to tight s in vip, while tourney will most likely hold an anny line...especially when broken in a little bit. And the vip giants are the closest to forces imo. tourneys will be slightly less hss than a max z force, will have more glide, straighter flight, and a little less fade. But again, just my opinion.

Tournament Swords are great. Flips up just a little for excellent straight line distance with little fade.
