Legacy Disc's Speed 14 Rampage

So Legacy Disc should release there speed 14 driver in July. Let me say it is an awesome disc. I threw the proto type and what I liked about it was that it didn't have a shallow space between the rim and the top flight plate. It actually had much more room then the nuke or the boss or ape. It also had a slightly thinner flight plate which made it easier to knuckle down on and launch further. They should be releasing this disc in three plastic, which would be simular to a KC plastic, a champion or Z, and a star type plastic. I will post some pictures of the disc and logo soon. If anyone has questions please ask. I will be selling these discs as soon as there made available and pdga approved. I will also get some video of this disc. I know a few top pros threw it recently and had good things to say. Watching Garrett Gurthie mash it was impressive.

Currently it is stable, but I believe it will become less stable when they mess with the softness of the plastic. The proto types came out super stiff, kinda like a plate, maybe 5% bend in the disc. You could literally clink them together. It was funny. I was throwing anhyzers around 430, but when they become softer I should be able to get these into the 500 foot range without trying to throw the anhyzer shot. Alot of people told me they didnt like the shallow rim and this thing isnt shallow. Also I think it will fly simular to a destroyer, but with more distance and alot faster. The mold is perfect, just some tweeking with the plastics over the next week and it will be off for approval. This company will next release a putter very simular to a magnet in my opinion. I threw a proto that was 175g and 181g. Of course the 181g wasnt legal but it was in a opto type plastic and the 175g felt like a special blend type plastic that was red. I believe good things will come from these and I would be surprised to see alot of us on here trying these bad boys out. Its a scary design and disc because it has alot of distance potential.

I'm curious what makes this disc a "speed 14". I was under the impression that 2.5cm was maximum rim width, and we already have discs in all kinds of stability ratings, weights, plastic blends, and other specs at that rim width.

Well, the Westside King is speed 14 and its rim thickness is 2.3cm. And a Wraith (2.1cm) and Archon (2.3cm) are both speed 11. So there apparenlty is more to speed ratings than rim width even though most discs do follow the pattern of greater rim width = greater speed.

Westside's speed rating is arbitrary. They termed it a 14 just as a marketing ploy. I think lion knows that, and I'm just curious if he is adopting the same philosophy or if there is something about the disc that is legitimately unique.
