Mando Molds for me in my westside line up would be the Stag/Tursas/Boatman
-I don't have the biggest arm but the boatman isn't nearly as intimidating as people/reviews state. Knowing I have only been throwing Lat64 plastic for a month or two I can easily say these are the easiest discs to control for me and I have tried a mess of Discraft/DGA etc.

There are definitely enough shared qualities between Lat and Westside (namely the glide) that it's hard not to view them as being more interdependent than, say, Innova and Discmania (although yes, some Discmania molds originate from Innova). I also feel that each company tries to avoid stepping on each others' toes - the Stag is definitely more OS than the Saint, the Underworld is definitely more US than the River, etc etc.

Anyone have any thoughts on which would be a better introduction to higher speed drivers, a Boatman or a Northman? I've been thinking about trying out a distance driver just for kicks.

I say Northman, if you want something between the Stag and Underworld or Boatman if you want more of a Banshee'est flight. I base this off of your disc list.

Nice. Something in between the Stag and Underworld is where I'm thinking, so it sounds like the Northman would be the way to go.

I love the original Northman stamp, too; Marshall Street still has some.

What's the Northman's speed range? Like 9-10 Control range?

Buddy has a Northman, maybe I'll give it a toss. I do enjoy the stag and get the most from it from a stand still throw <300 feet like butter! It seems when I incorporate a run up I turn it over... User error I am guessing.

It's rated a 10. Seems to be a bit under-the-radar mold.

Cool, when I'm looking to disc up alittle I might add that to the list along with the Flow.

I've been wanting to try a Northman too, but I've heard they're inconsistent. Is there anything specific to look for if I want a flight numbers-ish flight?
