Westside would need to add a more stable putter or I'd to balance it out a little. Their drivers seem nice in the high speed world, but mids and fairways are lacking. Maybe the Warship is the beginning of their assault on the slow disc world.

King is great for understable long distance drives (killer glide)

Sword replaced Nukes for me. Just as far with better control and tighter lines.

Warship is an excellent long straight mid, like a premium beat in Roc. Fast with lots of glide.

I told you the Swan was a secret! As long as you don't tell anyone in my division about it.

So very true. I am really blown away with how good these discs are.

Swan is understable, Wiz is over. Not sure if that helps, but I enjoyed the Swan much more than the Wiz when I tested them.

I find the Northman to be Valk-like.

The Northman is the only Westside I have not tried yet. I do not have a need for a Valk like distance disc in my bag, but if it were powered down, say to 70%, would it be an incredibly straight fairway driver with great glide and no fade? I can accomplish the same line with the Axis at 85-90%, but I have far better aim when I knock it down to 70%. That is what I am looking for.

My VIP Northman is flippy, it fills the Leopard spot in my lineup, never leaves the bag. It does glide really well, and its easy to throw from a standstill, like when your stuck behind a bush or under a tree.

King is super fun to throw, it goes far, even without a full pull, and Tourney plastic has a great feel, just the right amount of stickyness to get a firm grip on the wide rim.
Mine leans over alot more than the -1 high speed rating it carries, it leans alot more than my Vulcans, which are rated at -4.

Speed #'s are all wrong though, always subtract 2 from the Westside speed # to arrive at the actual speed.

I had this discussion over at DGR about Kings as well. I think a lot matters on how you throw the King and or the possibility that I am sitting on five freaks of nature. I am not discounting the latter, so I am no way saying they are not fliptastic. I have heard many people say they are, but all of my Kings have only a mild flip and I would definitely not go higher than -1.5. I do throw with the slightest hyzer, but even with this hyzer I can get my Mamba all the way over and almost into a roll, and that is a -5.

I use the King on Holes 2, 8, 11, and 18. 18 was a misfire because it slipped out early, however, the rest flip a little, track right, and definitely live up to its heaftier fade rating and come back on target. On this day I was putting them out to 390-400 just for reference. Holes 3, 5 (not videoed), 12, and 14 are the Giant. The Boatman is Hole 6. I am the guy with the obnoxious yellow shirt that matches my discs.
