I got a king disc in the vip plastic. It's durable as can be, and it is a straight shot. I'm not great at hyzers Or annies but for my long drives for a trusted disc. I always throw this disc. There is no doubt when it comes to throwing this disc.

169 grams and clear purple color. It's my favorite disc in my bag. I'm a rhbh thrower.

to follow up on some of the last posts I think it is probably that you will see a fairway driver from Westside that is similar to the Saint but perhaps a touch more stable

this is my opinion so you may disagree but for the most part I think that Westside seems to produce a slightly more stable version of a L64 disc

the TP Warship is a slightly more stable Fuse
the Sword is a slightly more stable Flow
the Giant and Villain are quite similar

there are exceptions

however, Westside could use something extra in the speed 7-9 range and a slightly more o/s Saint could be the trick

nothing that speed
Northman is likely your best bet at the moment but it is faster

I am going to disagree with most of this, but only because we likely have different throwing styles which obviously produce different results. If anything, this points out how greatly glide factors into how these discs fly. A disc with low glide will fly similarly to people of varying ability. A disc with tremendous glide, like most of Lat and WS's lineup, is going to behave completely different across the spectrum of ability and technique.

For the sake of throwing it out there then, my comparisons would be:

Warship slightly over the Core

the Sword has no counterpart because of its higher HSS combined with its lower LSS, but for the sake of saying something I will throw out the Havoc or Bolt

The Giant is far more a maximum distance driver while the Villain is more of a very long pseudo-fairway driver. Yet again to say something, the Giant over the Blitz and a really overstable VIP Boatman over the Gold Line Villain (although the really overstable Opto Villains trump any Boatman)

Core
Diameter 21,7 cm
Maximum weight 180,1 gram
Height 2,0 cm
Rim depth 1,2 cm
Inside rim diameter 18,9 cm
Rim thickness 1,4 cm

Fuse
Diameter 21,9 cm
Maximum weight 181,8 gram
Height 2,1 cm
Rim depth 1,3 cm
Inside rim diameter 19,3 cm
Rim thickness 1,3 cm

Warship
Diameter 21,7 cm
Maximum weight 180,1 gram

based on these specs the Warship is a hybrid of both the Fuse and Core
