The flight ratings for this disc sound very promising.
I might agree with that from Westside, but Lats numbers are pretty accurate.

I think 9 is pretty accurate. Unfortunately, Strikers are hard to pigeonhole because of the inconsistencies that developed. To me, widthwise, it feels like a 10 in the hand because of the diameter, but if I'm not mistaken it's really a 9 rim width.

Did I miss something, I thought disc golf Sweden was showing it as a speed 8?

Yup, those are the numbers I saw. A 6 glide with that stability is going to be something special. IMO

I agree, but I will believe it when I see it.

My guess is will be a little less stable than they say, and have a little less glide. Still a very decent sounding disc. BUT, if it is what they say, then it is a Teebird with more glide. Wow. Could be special. I'll grab one just in case.

If you were referring to my post, then yes you did miss something, and it would be the question from Huk about the Striker that I was answering. Anyway...can't wait to see how this disc turns out. Sounds like a winner.

Sounds like a nice disc. Numbers don't make a lot of sense though. You'd think with a rim of 1.9cm and a huge glide rating you'd end up with a flight closer to that of a speed 10 than a speed 8. Must have a giant dome and some crazy stabilizing features that slow it down, but keep it nice and stable while gliding...
