I noticed this as well. I let me buddy throw it, it was a worm burner, and took a chunk off the rim. The plastic SEEMS really strong, I was surprised to say the least.

Must be pure bad luck because all six of mine have seen a few hits and are still almost new. The again, these are working so great for me that I am staying in the fairway more often than not and the volume of hits are down compared to some other drivers I have used in the past.

I picked up a rival on a whim, played a round with it today, and it is staying. I had no turn out of it at 400ft power and a decent amount of fade. It is exactly what I was looking for in a fairway driver to compliment my volt, amp and escape. Legacy did a good job with this one.

I got a 173 rival that is very close to my 175 patriot in flight. Only difference is the rival is a bit more LSS. Do I just have a freak rival?

I would like to say yes, but with anything it could be just a matter of how you throw it.

In my case my Patriots have very noticeable turn, thus considerably less HSS, but if they are still airborne when the fade kicks in, they fade much harder than my Rivals. So, yes, my Patriots have more LSS.

Again, it could be a matter of how they are thrown. I trust a little more air under my Patriots, mainly to make sure they have time to fade out after some turn, but I love to keep my Rivals low and flat. They almost always land flat with no fade and no turn. The distance is comparable, so they will complement each other well.

Has anybody been throwing these long enough to tell if rivals lose their low speed fade before losing their HSS?

I have been using First Run Pinnacles since the moment Lion had them up for sale the first time. Their flights have stayed the same. However, as noted earlier, some people have had issues with durability. That could obviously change the flight characteristics of a disc, but if you can keep them intact, I have noticed no changes.

If you have not noticed already, I will definitely advocate for this disc. If they could some how add just a touch of glide without making it nose sensititve, this really is the perfect disc for my fairway game.
