Yeah, Striker has a speed 9 rim, River speed 8, and Teebird a 7. The thing with the Striker and River is that they don't feel as wide as similar speed Innova counterparts b/c of that plus rim. I threw a River along with my Eagle for awhile b/c they feel practically identical in the hand.

Either way, a slower fairway driver from Lat is good news, the Striker and River are both a little quick for me for controlled line shaping. I'm hoping this Saint will be like a QJLS or something, that would fill a nice hole for them.

I'm hoping this will replace my teebirds so I can stop throwing super expensive 11xkcps and CE, no one has really made a disc that can do what the teebird can really do hopefully the Swedish pull it off

The PD is really kickin ass right now for me so I'm hoping this will be around speed 7 and superstraightstable

BINGO on ALL points

I have a few strikers that have more HSS, the vast majority are Eagley
