I got my hands on an Air Stag from the MP last week and have been surprised to see how overstable it is. I feel crazy saying this, but it's more OS than any other Stag I've thrown, even 173 VIPs. Makes me wonder if Westside is unhappy with how it molds up in Air VIP and that's why they aren't marketing them, at least in the States.

I'm going to spend some more time with it to make sure it isn't just finickier than other Stags, but I've gotten what I know to be a lot of clean releases with this thing and regardless, it fades out earlier than my other Stags. Weird.

My Air Stag seems more OS than my others as well. Weird!

Are these overstable Air Stags super flat or domey? I saw a dark blue one that was board-flat, and another color that was more normal shaped.

I'm glad to know it's not just me. I felt like I was imagining things.

Mine looks pretty normal - a little more of a dome than my other Stags, if anything. Mine's an orange with a green stamp.

Mine is the dark blue/green and it is quite flat.

Has anyone ever seen a pink Sword? TP or VIP? I've been looking everywhere, do they even exist?

They have VIP swords that are pink here is one below in 173g VIP. However there are a few TP ones but hard to find an actual "PINK" more seem to be closer to purple and marketed as pink. However they do exist.

My yellowish AIR Stag ("Hiiden Hirvi", actually) has a higher PLH and more dome than its 10g heavier TP cousin.

Same here! The AIR Stag seems to be more true to Westside's 3 fade (or "Loppu-Feidi") than I expected...
