Please do not try to argue that a Vector will finish straighter than something like a Comet/buzzz/whatever... It's a fools errant and at that point you've traded a rational argument for a rhetoric masturbation.
Cool your jets el capitan, you were making it sound like your way was an absolute, 'tis all.

I don't know what a fools errant [sic] means but a disc's stability is subject to the guy throwing the disc, for my wuss arm a Vector wouldn't finish straighter than a Comet but for a more powerful thrower it might. At any rate, I don't think the Vector is that overstable that it can't be thrown on a frozen rope by any mortal.

If you do put it on a slight anny it will make this "frozen rope" line as BroD is saying. I just don't have the consistency yet with this disc to do it. It will be able to if you try hard enough tho.

Got mine in from MS this afternoon and they look really nice. Haven't had a chance to try them out yet, but i'm looking forward to putting them up against the Pain's for a spot in the bag.

got to throw mine on a tight and versatile course today and was very impressed with it.

great control on tighter shots, awesome glide, held up really well in right-to-left winds and really glided on with a tailwind. i had a poor shot that a buzzz would probably not have "hooked up" and came back that only went to the right maybe 20 feet then held flat for a while and had a very reliable fade.

definitely wasn't a "meathook" by any standards to me. slightly more overstable than a roc.

Please tell me these things aren't like a roast that needs to stay in the oven for what seems to be forever.

I wasn't worked up at all. If I came across as hostile, trust me, I had no intention to.

er·rant:
[er-uhnt]
deviating from the regular or proper course; erring; straying.

Yeah.. that's what I meant...
(thank you ManU that is what I meant to say)
