I had posted in the Love o Legacy thread about the Rival but figured I'd bring the conversation here.

My first Rival is a 171 Pinn. Snot yellow and puddle topped.

Well my sample size has grown. I now have 2 FAF Pinns at 173 Carolina blue and 175 pink, and a 1st run Icon.

The Icon has the highest PLH of my group. Very similar to a Brinster 'bird PLH. The Rival isn't as beefy but it's close. Similar line to the heavy Pinn but with less glide and more of a dump fade. A nice bookend Rival for sure. For me its 7/4.5/0/3

The flat Pinns are nice. Very similar to the lines I use my JL Champ TBs for. Similar PLH to a good TB also. Haven't throw them side by side but they are the closest I've tried between MVP, Trilogy, and now Legacy. Can't wait to beat in one of these. Very true to the flight numbers.

That leaves the puddle top. I love this thing. For me the flight is between a Eagle and DX TB. A little turn, tons of glide and a light finish. Lowest PLH of the group. If my other Rivals beat into this I will be a happy camper. My other Pinns are line holders, this guy is a line shaper. 7/6/-.5/2.

These things are a blast to throw. I like the slightly deeper hand feel. I think the Rival might be a keeper.

I just purchased a couple of used discs, included was a Excel Rival. This was the first one I had seen. On the Legacy website, it says the Rival is only made in Icon and Pinnicle. Was there just a short run of Excel Rivals??

The excels are in the starter packs and there was a short run done for an Ace Run that Barsby ran quite some time ago.

Picked up a new Rival today. 174 Icon in a nice dark greenish-blue. Flat, high PLH.

First throw was a FH line at about 325'. Tight gap, low ceiling and slightly up hill. Smashed chains. First Rival ace and only one this year so far.

These things rock. They make me look like I know what I'm doing. I don't really miss my TBs. Glide of a DX Leo but the stability between a TB and Eagle. Really remind me of a slower but seasoned SPD.

nice!

Similar thing happened to me with a fresh Legend Silver Rival on a hole about the same distance, it wasnt the first throw but the first round with it in the bag.

Ever since i have kept a couple Silver Legends in the bag, have a huge stack from the same run/weight/color now too so i never run out.

The rival is super predictable, pairs well with the blue/aqua pinnacles too.
