Default Opinions on a Wildcat!?

I just bagged a new Discraft Wildcat in X for something slightly less OS than a nuke. I havent seen these around alot or heard much about them. So far it seems like what its supposed to be... a little less OS than a nuke. What i found strange is that its not listed on discrafts driver page. Although, if you google "discraft elite-x wildcat" the second link takes you to its profile page at discraft, but still no link on the site to click. I read that it was discontinued in z plastic. Im really curious about the story here. Is it just so close to the nuke that people dont bother with it? I played a full round with it today and im actually diggin it. Really curious what everyone here thinks about it. Thanks!

Quite an old OOP disc in decent plastic. I have an old tourney Elite X Wildcat that makes an absolutely fantastic long-range turnover driver and roller. However, if you want more discussion, search the forum. There are older threads that cover a lot of ground.

Wildcat is a good amount shorter than a Nuke.

The Wildcat was Discraft's answer to the Valkyrie. They were pretty similar, but for me the Wildcat had more dump at the end which robbed it of some of the D I could get out of a Valk. They were never all that popular and I think they have been discontinued in all plastics.

So far as a comparison to a Nuke, they are totally different discs. A Nuke is so much faster than a Wildcat it would be hard to compare their flight.

I liked them to some extent. Good glide and nice for hyzerflips. They have some stability, but not just tons.

Now that you point all that out, it does seem like something between a valk and a nuke. The weights of my drivers are pretty spread out so the stability is being skewed. Hmmm.

And ^this being said... i think i should re-evaluate my nuke abilities. I should probably start discing down and get a grip. Probably a few people here that would agree. I certainly cannot throw 450.

Ok so, having processed all this, i have a newbie question. If the valk and the wildcat have similar flight patterns, why is the wildcat rated at 1.5 while the valk is considered US?
