Oh, just curious if I got a proto or not. I have a baby blue. Flies amazing though.

Threw some pinnacle and excel rivals this last weekend. They are much less LSS than i wouldve thought. I was thinking teebirdish, 0,3 type stability. It was almost comet like, not flippy just straight and with almost no fade on a 250-300 foot throw.

Is this normal?

my pinnicale Rivals are great.. but fairly straight and if i angle them on a hyzer they seem to fade decently at the end.

I was expecting based on reviews here for rival=teebird like, patriot= leopard like. Instead what i found is rival is like a beat C FD, and patriot is like a slower roadrunner :/

My Rival is very stable for me. I would put it at .5/2.5 type numbers with 350+ft of power. If I give it full power, (420ish) its more like -1/2.

Thinking about trying a Rival...

What are the options readily available out there?

Any differences based on plastic types and runs?

Read through a lot of the thread but unsure of what to go with.

Picked up another Rival this weekend. Dayglow 73 signed by Mr. Rico! I believe first run. Sexy as hell.
